Two part review:

Ice cream side - Really awesome. The sit-down style is something that seems like it died everywhere else. Other ice-cream shops just like to get you in and out (yes, they all have tables but they never seem to be clean or organized) whereas forge likes to keep you right there and engaged. You feel like you're at a diner. Love it. The server was really kind and with a previous customer ordering three pints, they were able to handle the small rush that came in like a breeze. I'll be back.

Cafe side - This review would have 5 stars but the ice coffee was not exactly great. Not bad by any means! But just nothing to write home about. For a cafe that has a good rep and great staff, I was hoping for a better ice coffee, but it tasted pretty burnt. Maybe it's a one off and if it is, I'll bump this baby back up to a 5 star!

On the expensive side. Good coffee, fantastic ice cream, and ok food. Breakfast sandwich is great, but don't arrive after 2pm or they'll refuse to make it. Their bread is also great.

The food is okay but I got an iced coffee and a breakfast sandwich and it cost me $17 and change. The coffee is priced on the menu as “market” as if I’m buying a 3 pound freshly caught lobster in Maine. Good food but DEFINITELY not worth the price.

The pastries would be twice as good if they could be heated a little before serving. It's rare that a bakery would not have a way to heat things on request...consider it, it's an easy fix...

I really liked my egg, cheese, and bacon sandwich. The bacon was crispy, flavorful, and thick without being overcooked. The cappuccino was delicious. Parking available. Industrial atmosphere. Plenty of indoor seating with some outdoor street seating with traffic protection. Yogurt parfait my wife and daughter had was really good and filling.
