“Best Place in Valpo”

Ranked #28 of 162 Restaurants in Valparaiso
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 August 2014

If you are swinging through Valparaiso and looking for a place to eat or get a cup of coffee you HAVE to go to Uptown Cafe. They have delicious sandwiches (turkey avocado is awesome), homemade soups, flat bread pizzas and salads. But if you are there during breakfast time do yourself a favor and get a breakfast panini because chances are you will be back again if you try one.
My favorite drink there is an iced vanilla americano, if you ask them to make it "tony's style" they will put in half and half for you giving a super sweet and creamy drink. Delicious!
The owners are as sweet as they come. They started the cafe a few years ago and you can see the couple Tony and Shannon working there almost every single day! They work hard to maintain a type of welcoming cafe that is becoming more and more rare.
I came here almost everyday when I was in undergrad at Valpo to study. You never feel rushed or like they are trying to turn tables. Plus there are free refills on drip coffee, making it a broke college kid's dream! It is a wonderful place to have meetings, meet up with friends, or get some work done. My parents love it here, my friends love it here... it's a pretty hard place not to love.

Very relaxed and comfortable. They've got comfy furniture and games and it is just a nice place to kill some time before class, a meeting, or work. Coffee is good, so is the gelato. Food is a bit hipster for me, but it's good enough to grab some every now and then.

I was told to ask for the "Cardomom Latte", by a friend that frequents this place. I have never been disappointed. It's relaxing and also a great place to work on your computer, play games, have a meeting,

I first stopped into Uptown Cafe for a cup of coffee, and I was intrigued by the coffee suggestion of the day written on the chalkboard: Cardamom Latte. I ordered one, and I was hooked! So delicious! I first stopped in for a meal when the Internet was out at my house and I needed wi-fi in order to do some work. The breakfast panini is wonderful, as it the BLT. Soups are also delicious. The atmosphere is terrific. Light and bright, friendly, open but not noisy. Owners Tony and Shannon are personable, hardworking, and very good at what they do. I definitely recommend Uptown Cafe, whether for your morning coffee, a quick lunch, or a mid-day treat.
