General Comments:

Ninth Street Espresso is a decently sized coffee shop on 9th Street (hence the name). It was pretty busy on a Saturday afternoon at 1pm. There was a good coffee shop vibe with lots of people sitting around with their drinks chatting, working on laptops, etc.


There were a few people in line ahead of me so it took a few minutes to make my order.


The menu is pretty limited with just a handful of selections, very unlike a Starbucks, and they are Cash only. Their drink menu was just: Hot Coffee, Cold Coffee, Espresso, & Espresso w/ Milk.


I ordered a simple hot coffee, black, and it was $2.50 which is pretty standard for the city now. There is only one size offered, it was probably 12 oz. It was extremely hot and they didn’t have coffee sleeves so I asked for an extra cup layer so I could hold it. I had to wait several minutes for it to cool a bit before trying it. It was a good strong cup of coffee, and tasted similar to a Starbucks. It got better once it cooled down even further.


Overall it was a solid cup of coffee and I would return if I was nearby, but wouldn’t go out of my way to get it again.
