The coffee was very good. I went during the day and it was fairly quiet. The table I was working at was somewhat uncomfortable. Servers were not overly friendly but very good coffee.

Great coffee and tea spot with generous servings and friendly baristas. Offered almond milk as a dairy alternative. Plenty of indoor seating. Outdoor seating is limited and looks out on a busy street so it has a more urban than quaint vibe.

Crave's owners have found the most flavorful, robust and delightful of coffee beans and made them into their trademark. Recently upgraded, the atmosphere is distinctly European, with the comfort of having a cup of the best coffee around! The sandwich offerings are definitely delightful and the deserts are made by the owners. Great place for a quiet cup, a little... More

I very much enjoy this coffee shop. The floor layout is spacious and clean, but not sterile feeling like one of the major-chain coffee shops. The staff are incredibly friendly and courteous. Prices are fair. The breakfast bagel is very, very good. The breakfast bagel comes with an egg in it and it is a real egg not the kind... More

I've been here three times. It's a nice little place to have meeting or hang out. The prices are cheaper than Starbucks but in line with the other local coffee shops.

I was here 7 years ago and it looks noting like it did then. It's looks a lot better. The owners are super nice and you see them everyday. Good coffee, good wifi, and a stand up work station for me!! Also they have almond milk, so the occasional almond milk latte is in order for this guy. Pastries look... More

We like our lattes! So in Tucson, we were looking around. And found the best here. I don't know the secret. But there is a slight sweetness to the coffee as opposed to the typical bitter. It's not sugary or too sweet, just delicious. We didn't try the food but came back several times for the great coffee.

Okay, so I'm like Goldilocks. On my recent Tucson visit I checked out 6 coffee joints. Some are just too loud, and some are just too dineresque. And some, alas, have not special coffee. Crave is a keeper. Quality coffee drinks, nice atmosphere, friendly owner staff, and tasty food that even goes beyond a bakery case.

I spend a lot of time in Seattle so I wasn't expecting much when I dropped in here with a friend on a weekday afternoon.What I got was good coffee and great service in a nice ambiance. The usual suspects appeared on the offerings board but I became intrigued by the separate hot specialty drinks list and ended up ordering... More

Love this little hole in the wall with all the offerings of a coffee bar and a fresh, fun atmosphere for socializing as well as stopping in for a business meeting and eating a quick,healthy sandwich or salad, also it's a great place to sip on a hot beverage while studying for exams.
