“Spendy, but mostly worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2013

My group enjoyed breakfast here before our day of wandering and shopping. The price was a little on the spendy side for the food and drinks. We were surprised by the flavors and yumminess of the breakfast sandwiches and burritos. Very filling and tasty. I shared a pastry with a friend and would not recommend the chocolate croissant.... there was barely any chocolate in that thing.... you don't do that, especially to a woman who is looking for a little chocolate for breakfast. Overall a recommended stop.

“Good quality cappuccinos and lattes and very nice café ambiance.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

Good quality cappuccinos and lattes and very nice café ambiance. Galena doesn't have a Starbuks, so this is the closest you'll get if you like that type of place. They are at the beggining of the Main street.

“Good value for iced coffee with a coupon. Service needs lots of improvement.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

Came to Galena for a short visit. We arrived in the afternoon and came to Kaladi for a quick lunch. We stood at the counter for a short while before the server greeted us. The server knew we were there but he decided to clean up the counter before he greeted us. We asked about the house soup and he said there is none! We said the sign is there and he replied " the sign is just there!" We left without ordering anything.
Next day we found a coupon for a buy one get one free iced coffee. So we returned and made sure the server from the day before was not there. We were greeted by another server and ordered our coffee. He was very slow and not really friendly. For the price we paid buy one get one free they were good. But we certainly would
not return unless there was another coupon to be found. Even then we might skip it and go to other coffee shop.

“Our choice for coffee in Galena!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

If you want a nice coffee experience in Galena, come here! I ordered a true macchiato which is always a good way to judge a coffee shop. Excellent! Nice atmosphere too!

“great iced coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2013

On a hot afternoon it was nice to have an iced coffee that was strong and not watered down. Nice atmosphere. We started our day and ended our day here with coffee. Obviously, good enough to return.
