REVIEWS OF 222 Artisan Bakery & Cafe IN Illinois

Michael Cassens

I really like this bakery as the coffee is good and they are always so accommodating with their sandwiches by making it a salad for me. However, it would be nice if they had some gluten free options. I know it may be cost prohibitive and I can understand that. Thanks for the great atmosphere!

Steve Mizel

Love this place! They constantly rotate the baked goods selection, offering plenty of fresh baked breads and pastries. Their chorizo breakfast burrito is one of my favorite morning meals. Since expanding their seating area, there is plenty of space, even at busy hours. And they serve Goshen Coffee - so you know that's good!

Phillip Holland

Love this place, just wish they would have one more barista in the mornings. Always a long wait.

Meagan Colley

Be sure to arrive early because the pastries run out quick! The bakery is delightful and the staff is always a joy to be around.

Judy Letourneau

Best coffee, cinnamon rolls, pastries, pretzels, bagels, etc.

Garrett Short

Really good food and drink, a bit expensive

Alicia Griffith

Best pastries in Metro St Louis. Real bread! Great service!

Stephen Haas

A small local bakery and cafe in the heart of Edwardsville. You never go wrong with the cinnamon rolls.

Shae Elwood

Very good food & drink! Their iced chai is the best chai I have ever tasted, and I have tasted a lot of chai. I also got a quiche and that was also very good & fairly sized for the price. I also got a macchiato, and I was expecting milk, vanilla and espresso iced, but turns out an actual macchiato is 3 shots of espresso with a splash of milk. I was okay with it though, that wasn’t their fault I don’t know what I’m talking about haha. They really should invest in a larger space though, we went on a Tuesday morning and there were very few seats available. We were sitting in the very back and there was a milk delivery and we were asked to move. Overall a good experience! :)

Thomas O'Connell

Roomy cafe with great eats and your typical coffee drinks but cheaper than the chains. Local place takes part in the farmers market too and hosts other local small business events.

Shawn Semmler

You can expect a friendly and personable staff, an upbeat and casual environment, some of the best coffee in the St. Louis region, and a menu full of great options--especially their cinnamon rolls and pizza options.

Oh! M! G! 1st of all, Edwardsville has the nicest people in America. You all need to write a book. Secondly, as I'm walking around downtown, I happen upon ABC. I'm trying to read the signs inside the cafe and Josh sees me and comes over and opens the door (they were closed btw) and answers my questions. THEN, I go the next morning and Josh is there! My classmate and I order a variety of items and sit at the counter to eat. THEN, I ask Josh do the bags have the store logo on it and he says no, but, I can stamp it for you. I could go on and on but you get the picture. Oh! The baked oatmeal was amazing. I can no longer eat packaged oatmeal. This place is everything.

I've been going there every week with friends. If you just need black coffee you can get it for around $1.60 - pretty cheap. Nice atmosphere.

Bo Jangles

Fantastic atmosphere, very cozy. Good service as well. Haven't been there enough to say about the food really.

Tiffany Shannon

The food is always great and the coffee is amazing. But the space they have is Insufficient for their customer base. So if want a to-go order grab it, if you wanna sit enjoy your morning skip it. Though the staff is friendly and wonderful the customer base could careless; if you have to stand with your children. I've had this experience more then once.

Wendy Porter

Amazing x

Lynn Bulock

Bruce Da.

Always fast friendly service..

Crystal Schneider

Great coffee, the lattes are perfection. Banana, caramel is my favorite! The croissant was okay, we had a few of the bakery items, since they weren't making sandwiches for breakfast. Which I though was a bit odd. But I had the quiche. It was awful. No flavor, which really surprised me. It won't be a go to breakfast spot for us. But the coffee, service and surroundings are excellent.

Roger Seals

I start my day there every morning.

The coffee is always so good. I also love that they are so community minded.

Artisan has probably some of the best pastries I have had, and I hate puff pastries. These are so delicious and baked the day off. Make sure to go in early to make sure you even get any!

Justin Gerstner

This place is a great spot to meet up with friends. I'm not a coffee person, but their pastries are to die for. Strawberry cheesecake Danish is my go to.

Breann Towner

I love this place! And especially because not only is their food amazing but I love their small family atmosphere of employees.

Sitting here charging my phone enjoying a little quiet time. Coffee is very delicious (carmel latte).


I love this coffee shop. Fresh baked bread, excellent coffee, great service, amazing customer experience...

J Shaw

I used to take great delight in treating myself with a baked goody from 222. I would dash in for lattes. Our office frequently ordered lunch and loved it. I lunches here with my mother about 6 weeks ago. I ordered the sweet potato and cauliflower soup. It was inedible. It looked and tasted like a giant blob of baby food mixed with water. Then, the week of Thanksgiving, I had brunch with a friend. Her quiche tasted off and she sent it back. My breakfast burrito was greasy and the eggs were rubbery. As much as it pains me, I won't be back. I am sure Matt is shaking his head somewhere.

Sean Hall

The dough of their pizza is excellent. I devoured that pizza and had a Machiatto with it because that's the real 222 Artisan experience in my opinion. Stop in! It's quality all around. Goshen Coffee Beans are local and create an amazing brew.

jan gen

Friendly staff, good atmosphere. Excellent breads and pastry! Salads were very fresh, but they used whole almonds, rough on the teeth. Quiche was great, very fresh. I'll Be Back.

Melissa Schlee

Very friendly staff. Pizza

Martha Dawson

The BEST bread and coffee around. Great service and lovely atmosphere .

Emily Kuether

Everything I've eaten is absolutely delicious. I try to get there at least once a week. Extremely nice and genuine staff.

Justin Smith

Great breakfast, try the chorizo burritto. Lovely pastries


My favorite cafe in Edwardsville. It has the best atmosphere and staff. The food is expensive but delicious. I always get the biscuits & gravy whenever I get breakfast with friends on weekends. Chai tea lattes & coffee is good too :)


Nice little place


Great pastries. Above average quiche. Good selection of morning beverages. I was there in the morning. Great way to start a new day.

Agnieszka Czarnecka

Delicious coffee and hummus!

Rhonda Pape

Very busy this Father's day for breakfast. Quiche and biscuits and gravy would have been great if they would have been hot. Good coffee!

Linze Aya

Delicious bread, food, cool atmosphere.

Brenden Hernandez

Very friendly staff, great food and coffee!

Angie James

One of the best gathering places downtown!

Bill Grandone

This place has the best pastry this side of Paris. Not the sticky sweet overload that passes for pastry in most of this country rather delicate rich pastry with a well balance assortment of goodies . The coffee is the best in the area. Every time I go there i am reminded of my time in Paris. Wish I lived closer.

Kim I

Cute little cafe/bakery. We have never been in the morning, so the selections are pretty scarce by the time we get there (usually only cookies left) but the staff is friendly and the cookies are pretty good!

Carrie hill

Fun atmoshere, great quiche and coffee


Long wait and high prices for average coffee and food.

Great food, great coffee, best coffee shop in town

Doug Kuhn

They sell a huge selection of Goshen beans!!

Sarah Wetstein

Just had my first meal here. Breakfast burrito was really good. Coffee was great. However I am taking one star off because the bathroom was really gross. The toilet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while. Also I saw a few people come in, fill their own mugs with coffee and then leave without paying for it. Maybe the refill cannister needs to be monitored more

Kate Johnston

I got in a few hours of work here. Amazing coffee, great staff, cool atmosphere. Love this local coffee place!

A great local bakery, their menu items are very fresh. The environment is laid back and relaxing, I go there with my friends and family often just to chill out and have a good time.

Very good bread, delicious STRONG coffee and pastries. The breakfast rush on weekends can get crazy. The fresh orange juice is great, the baked oatmeal is fantastic.

Jeff Cassens

It's amazing what has happened in this business. The expansion opened up much needed seating space, and the coffee, food and atmosphere are all terrific!

Dustin Slagle

Fresh food, really fresh, good helping. A bit pricey but the amount you get is fair for the price. Great pastries and a very good chi tea.

Elizabeth :P

Goshen Coffee (which is the correct coffee) and their danish is like biting into a stick of butter.

Shelley Talada

This, has become my favorite place when I visit from Memphis. I love the atmosphere, the food was fantastic, and the coffee, well I made a trip daily to have a cup. I also bought the roasted coffee beans and have been enjoying an amazing cup of coffee here at home in Tennessee. I sure enjoyed meeting several family members there daily and Ill definitely make it my go to place from now on.

Jordan Dollar

One off my favorite places. Great breads. Great espresso drinks. Be sure to try the croissant or the cinnamon roll. The pizzas and sandwiches are good to (pizzas served Fri-Sun, sandwiches Mon-Thu).

Ashly Borgic

My absolute favorite place to go for coffee and breakfast. The most friendly atmosphere and welcoming crowd. The food and service is great!!

Katrina Busick

Great little spot just off the highway. There's plenty of seating inside and out (we opted for outdoor seating since we're traveling with our dog), good coffee, tasty treats and friendly staff. Glad we stopped for breakfast here before hitting the road again.

Amber Donnelly

The food here was amazing and the coffee even better. It does get rather busy quick so if you go i'd get there as early as possible. Great staff and overall great place
