I ordered a cup of coffee and a cinnamon roll. The coffee was supposed to be a light house roast. Whether it was or not who can say. All I know it was the worst cup of coffee I've ever had. It was at least 4 days old and had set in its grounds and possibly the grounds of Pryor coffee made as I suspected machine had not been cleaned in over a month. I tried to muscle it down. I added a ridiculous amount of half and half. I had drink it down to about an inch and added half and half almost to the top and then 10 packets of sugar and there was little difference. Every sip was worse than the one before it. The coffee was served luke warm at best so I had nothing to lose by adding some water to it trying to dilute it because it was so strong and nasty. I drank it down about 2 inches from the top and had to give up as I almost threw up. I literally gagged and thought I was going to lose it. The worst part was when I brought it to their attention the girl said she would ask about it poured out my coffee and waited on the next customer without offering me a refund or the chance to try a different coffee. Which in my mind told me she knew all the coffee was bad and not worth drinking. Apparently most people that come there drink the lattes. The cinnamon roll wasn't too bad taste-wise once she microwaved it. It was obvious it had come in a grocery store package set of small cinnamon rolls and was probably day old or older. I was shocked to find out it was $4. I could have bought one three or four times the size at a donut shop for probably about half the cost if not the same cost even. But certainly no more. I probably could have bought one at a gas station in the larger size as well I know gas station serve better coffee than what this Coffee Lounge sells. I think a lot of reviews on other sites are fake as it is the same people making them. I suspect the owner had their employees have family members write a bunch of fluff reviews for them.. one review claims that reminds them of the coffee shops back east and another one that reminds him of coffee shops back West. Well little cousin I travel on my job and I have been to both locations East Coast and West Coast and I have been to coffee shops on both and this maybe a white trash comparison to the coffee shops they have in either place. Maybe locals who are well off but have no actual breeding our class Envision it as a socialite Club as they drink their lattes and sit at the tables. But it is as ridiculous as watching The Andy Griffith Show and watching how the richest family in town would act when they went out in public. Not much difference I guess art does imitate life. I would not recommend this place and even venture to say that it might even be a health hazard. I don't know if microwaving stale cinnamon rolls is such a good idea. Or if drinking for day-old coffee could make you sick or not. But it left my stomach sour and almost made me sick trying to drink it. Good luck if you are brave enough to try this place. But don't blink or you'll likely miss it. Businesses that are as bad as this won't last long. The people I saw there were drinking lattes and nothing else so apparently the regulars know not to order regular types of coffee or food products. And that in itself speaks volumes.
