Great Place

I've been to this place many times. I absolutely love when I happen to be there when they are roasting the beans. There coffee is great as well as their other drinks. I've been there for an apple cider that wasn't put together out of a package of dry ingredients but was the real thing. It was delicious. The atmosphere is great and if you want to do some school work, surf the web, or just want a nice place to enjoy...This is it. Great employees, service and drinks.

Love Love Love the Governor's Cup

I go to this establishment at least 5 times a week. The customer service is better than any coffee shop I've been too. The employees are down to earth and likeable, the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing.

Rude service, ridiculous wifi policy

This coffee shop has free wi-fi, but only if you buy a drink. You can buy all the food you want there, but if you don't buy a drink, they will ask you to leave. Apparently, the tables are only for drinking customers, not paying eating customers.

I was at the Governors Cup on a Sunday morning and only bought something to eat. There were at least 4 empty tables on the main floor. I was told that only people who buy a drink can sit at the tables. I've never heard of such a ridiculous policy.

If the owners wants to keep people from sitting at a table for several hours, they should do what many other coffee shops do and allow 1 or 2 hours of free wi-fi with every drink or food purchase.

This place has lost my business permanently. There are plenty of other coffee shops in Salem with friendly service and reasonable policies.



Down Home Attitude Adjustment

I go to Gov Cup whenever I am in Salem. The barista's are super friendly, but not fake. The regulars are missed by the baristas if they miss a day.(How Friendly is That?) The customers range from street people to college students, business people and the old people who do their crosswords together...oh, and joggers - lots of joggers. I sometimes got a coffee-contact-high just walking in the door when they would roast their coffee in the shop. Their espresso roast 'Attitude Adjustment" is my favorite roast ANYWHERE! (And I live in Seattle) They were also the first coffee house that I ever went to that charged for Americano's by the amount of shots and not by the cup size.

The decor is kind of 'your parent's basement' strewn with caffine related paraphernalia and the sofas were a little thrashed, but that added to the charm.
