Good coffee, great breads and baked goods plus the industrial and warehouse setting makes it real cool and hip. Haven’t tried the other stuff on the menu but a lady next to us had a plate of food that looked healthy and πŸ˜‹ yummy! Service is friendly and the cafe vibe is right β€” you get families, couples, singles, small groups ... and people sitting at the communal table make conversation with one another! One can also watch the pastry makers who are at work behind the glass window. We go there often and now we find ourselves going there more often.

Lots of inside seating and a few outlets. Quiet! Some menu items can be made vegan, plus they have a few sweet that are vegan. Great place to get some work done or read while enjoying coffee!

The savory everything monkey bread (with a side of cream cheese) is worth the 20min drive every time. Great ambiance in a large space. Reasonable prices.

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!

Dear Forge,

I love your egg and cheese. I love that I can order it online and walk in on my way to work to find it ready and waiting for me. I love that you use a real, beautiful fried egg and not a pre-mixed scramble. I love your little signature addition of tomato butter. I love it best of all on an everything bagel. You're perfect. Never change.
