“Batch Bakery Comes to Ancora”
Reviewed 17 March 2013

Ancora has been my favorite coffee provider for years now. But there bakery goods have always been pretty dreadful. Until now! As of Monday, March 11th, all their bake goods come from Batch Bakery on Willy St. This is double the pleasure. All I've tried so far are their scones and the Monkey Bread (a cinnamon type muffin) and they are simply awesome. The lemon scone I had was light and buttery, not the usual dry floury stuff that bakeries pass off as a scone. The monkey bread is every bit as good as a morning bun. Less sugary but still sticky sweet and cinnamony. Please stop at any Ancora location some morning and try any of the coffees of the day and one of these baked goods. It will make you a fan of Ancora and Batch for life!

“The Best Coffee in Madison”
Reviewed 4 April 2012

Ancora is a coffee roasting company supplying over 100 restaurants and business customers in the Madison area - so they know how to make good coffee!. I found the atmosphere at their western store fun and relaxed. When I told them I might be spending a few hours - waiting for someone at University Hospital (just a stone's throw away) - they recommended the "Bottomless Cup". That turned out to be an excellent choice because I was able to sample large mugs of several of their coffees - from a very dark roast to more normal fare. None of these had the burnt taste of the other coffee chain :). The free WIFI let me get some work done. Just what I was looking for.
