    Are you looking for a fall-flavored latte in March? Or perhaps a grab and go half-dozen chocolate chip cookies? How about a large collection of previously owned vinyl records to flip through before you get your snack on? If you answered yes to any of the above, check out Please and Thank You. I would definitely recommend a harvest moon latte for my fellow psl lovers. “Best chocolate chip cookie in Kentucky” is a bold claim, so I had to try one. They do have a good balance of sweet and salt, definitely wouldn’t say no to getting one again. Staff were friendly and worked quickly. I got my order to go, but the inside looks like a comfy place to stay awhile.

    Best chocolate chip cookies EVER. Plus, the honey boy latte has to be one of my favorites. The atmosphere is also beautiful. The perfect little coffee shop!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Caitlin Nesbit (7 months ago)
    Ranking 5 stars for the cookies. Actually incredible. You could probably make the cookies they serve like this at home but they have the ingredient breakdown perfect and cook them just a little underdone which I’m partial to.

    Coffee is 3-4/5 coffee. Not too pricy, but wasn’t knock my socks off or anything. Fun vibe inside. Not a ton of places to sit for a group larger than 4.

    Adorable little sweets and coffee shop. Stylish on the inside, lots of drinks, and delicious baked goods. I got their chocolate chip cookie and my friend got the Mexican Hot Chocolate. Our choices were absolutely delicious. We discussed going back in for seconds.

    Delicious! The chocolate chip cookie loves up to the hype. The coffee is very good too. I had the Honey Boy Latte. Creamy and not too sweet.

    It is a very cozy environment with extremely helpful and lovely staff. It’s a great place to grab a book and mingle for a while with cappuccino or espresso. Also, They have plenty of outlets so if you wanna bang things out on a laptop for a couple of hours, it’s a pretty ideal place. The pastry selection is plentiful to full and diverse. I love the scrumptious cakes. They also roast their coffee in-house, which is neat. From what it seems like, they mainly provide dark roasts. I will definitely come back for a second visit.

    Meeting with friends this morning at Fante’s Coffee. My first time since I do not drink coffee, but the Chai Latte Tea was great there’s many different coffees and teas to choose from and sweets to have with them. I noticed that there was a lunch menu. The smell of the coffee inside was delightful.
    The place was sunny and very comfortable inside and out. We choose to sit outside on the patio.
    A friend of ours that passed last year worked there and they
    graciously honored him in several ways. The Cadillac coffee roasters were big and beautiful as we toured the roasting room. A pleasant surprise!
    I would have no problem going again for more Latte and enjoying the atmosphere.

    Nostalgia. Nostalgia. Nostalgia! What used to be a house is more a quaint little coffee shop with a charm so it’s own. Many blasts from the post to help you remember yesteryear Bad bell all warm and fuzzy. They serve the coffees and trees you know and love… and with a smile. Also enjoy assorted scones, danishes and cookies. Go, sit, relax, soak up the atmosphere and remember the good ol days!
    ✭✭✭✭ By Karen Renata (8 months ago)
    Superb place, simply superb. Notwithstanding the barista who was in a bad mood and lacked friendly customer service skills, the coffee is out of this world. The presentation is beautiful and the atmosphere is exactly what you want a coffee house to have – relaxed and inviting.

    I recently started coming here to study! The drinks and pastries are yummy and the staff is really nice! Someone even came around to see if I needed my drink reheated! The little cookies on the side are a nice touch!

    Overall, a really nice vibe that I’m willing to drive 15-20 minutes for.

    More robust rewards system would be really nice! But I LOVE this place!

    This was the second time I’ve been here. First time was in 2018 and now in July of 2022. Got an iced hazelnut latte and a red eye. Both were fantastic! I had a BOGO coupon that I got through T-Mobile Tuesday’s that they could not enter into their system but they honored it no questions asked. Very kind thing of them to do. Definitely worth a trip coming here if you’re a fan of coffee or a cozy atmosphere!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By David Hubbard (6 months ago)
    Perfect cup of cappuccino. Just perfect. Smooth texture, beautifully presented, delicious. The atmosphere is eclectic, perhaps looks a little messy on purpose, but the chill vibe and friendly service does exactly what it intends – gives it five stars.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Berele (9 months ago)
    I’ve heard about this place forever and finally got around to going. The vibe is laid back and chill, and the coffee is delicious. All kinds of beans to choose from and plenty of coffee equipment to buy. The staff was great and the service friendly. Several locations in Louisville as well so make sure to check one out.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Justin Shircliff (6 months ago)
    The coffee was hot and ready to order. Service was prompt without much delay. They have several menu options that I have not seen at other locations for a coffee. When I ordered whole bean coffee they offered to grind it and asked what I would be using the coffee for so they were grounded appropriately. I am very pleased with my visit to the shop. Enjoy!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Kevin Keller (a year ago)
    Absolutely one of the best coffee shops for many miles. I live an hour away but make the trip – and pass dozens of other coffee shops on the way – for their espresso drinks. They just know what they’re doing more than most places. I’ve always been of the opinion that the best coffee in this part of the country is in Chicago, and Sunergos would be competitive in the Chicago coffee market. Also a nice shop to work or study from. It’s laid back, kind of that older-funky coffee shop feel, which is a nice change of pace from a lot of the more “designed” coffee shops. Random mid-century furnishings that have some wear and tear, nice plants here and there, an easy-going vibe, and personable baristas. Really love this place. And not that they close TOO early, because it’s reasonable, but if they were open later, I’d make the trip more often. But that’s not really much of a “complaint,” they’re open as late or later than a lot of coffee shops.

    This place is so good!! They’re not doing dine-in service right now but they have plenty of outdoor seating. And they’ve adapted their building to take orders from the window–pretty clever! The building’s outside has always grabbed my eye and I’m so glad I finally stopped by. Service was fast and friendly, though they were also patient with me taking time to read the menu. The pumpkin spice latte was delicious. I also grabbed a cinamon roll for a quick breakfast. I was expecting the normal pastry, but it was actually laminated pastry and delightful. There are some electric car charging stations in their back parking lot. I’ll definitely be back here soon.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Holly Brown (a year ago)
    I have to say that this was THE ABSOLUTE BEST crepe that I’ve eaten in my life. I pretty much inhaled it and I was just so happy. The ambiance and people that work there are just absolutely wonderful and the vibe is perfect. The prices are super good and they have many drink options and vegan desserts! Next time I’m in KY I will certainly visit! Thank you so much for the amazing experience!
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Zuleirys Santana Rodriguez (11 months ago)
    Grabbed a quick breakfast and latte here. Super cool atmosphere and very friendly staff. The oat milk latte was delicious and the Sweet Kid crepe was out of this world.
    ✭✭✭✭✭ By Meg Martin (10 months ago)
    A coffee and drink environment that is so positive with energy. It is a great asset to the neighborhood and acts as part of the neighborhood. Coffee prepared to give you the best taste with all the variations you want. They have a good basic selection of teas and also have smoothies and hot chocolate on the menu. Would have 5 stars with a larger selection of teas.
    If you need a bite to go with your drink I enjoy one of their crepes which can be from dessert type to lunch filled.

    Eclectic environment, love the windows to see the roasters.
    Baristas were just “meh” they didn’t attempt to help/suggest drinks.
    The white mocha was ok, had a floral undertone.
    ✭✭✭ By M A (a year ago)
    My neighborhood shop! Favorite coffee place in Louisville. Beans and drinks are consistent in quality.
    Great environment whether you want to grab a coffee, sit, and read or on-the-go. Also, this location is the roastery so if you go in mid-week you can see the action occurring the back which is pretty cool.
