Very clean, love the vibe. Great food and beverages.
I met with a friend here, grabed a sandwich and something to drink. I ordered a 20oz iced latte and got a 16oz hot latte. Other than that everyone was friendly and the turkey siracha sandwich was delicious
Coffee with a pastry while studying for exams. Priceless.
This is how you do a coffee shop. Options and kindness. They let me use the bathroom first before I bought a coffee.
Love this place for the ambience and COFFEE!
Loved the feel of the cafe. Fun throwback 90s music with lots of seating (although we came during peak hours and it was really crowded). We ended up taking our drinks to go and sitting at a bench outside. We had their loose leaf tea (chamomile and earl grey) and it was very good. Also tried the strawberry scones and was impressed.
Quiet and pleasant ambience
My decaf iced mocha was very good.
I think this coffee shop is good at student for doing homework or studying, so many students were studying and drinking coffee.
Decent coffee shop, but nothing extraordinary.
I adore Blue State. Great coffee, awesome baked goods, a really nice mission of giving back to the community. That said, the superior Blue State is on Wall Street.
Coffee is almost never consistent. I wish they would create a better standard service
Good service, good coffee
Great selection of smoothies & coffee, just really wish they had oatmilk!
Guter Kaffee und nette Leute. So wie es sein sollte...
Love the coffee! Love the charity! Love the location!
you have never tasted true coffee if you haven't had blue state yet. amazing just go in and try it and you wont be disappointed
Really good coffee in nice location. students place. staff are friendly. food is ok.
One of my favorite coffee place in the world. There is a great college atmosphere and I love what they do for the community in terms of social responsibility and local sourcing of supplies. And their coffee - truly the best in the area.
Ahhh... Do you know, how much Europeans and big city kids miss late night coffee shops? No, not all of them, but a lot. I me is just one of that spoiled generation, which love to spend their evening outside, but not drinking alcohol or shaking with a music. I like to sit in the cafe, work on a creative part of my job, read, talk, listen etc. Entire Yale Campus and downtown New Haven area has very few places still open after 9pm, and Blue State Coffee is on the top of my list. Great viriety of coffein and non-financial drinks to match the mood and intentions. Good (for a coffee place) choice of pastry and snacks. Trendy-ish music and generally very nice and interesting crowd.
Smooth and strong cortados with nice spots to study...if you can snag one.
Good high quality & tastey coffee at a very affordable and cheap price.
Staff is friendly, coffee is good if a bit overpriced, but this location is always crowded with Yalies which makes it hard to sit down and enjoy your coffee at the location.
Great coffee place
The coffee brought me right back to europe. So delicious. Nothing good comes fast (food wise) so I understood the wait. This is not McDonald's coffee here!
Sponsor of yale corrupt bloody diplomas..
거스름돈 똑바로안줘요. ㅋ 100원이라서 그냥 넘어갔는데 그래도 기분나빳음... 일행중이 2명이나 잘못준걸로봐서 고의인거같아요
Great coffee, good breakfast sandwich, and friendly staff. Perfect place to hunker down on a rainy Saturday.
Best latte in town
Very good coffee and bagels. The shop is clean and mildly fast with orders. It is very accessible, too, especially to those in Silliman College.
I love their chai lati
Hard to get a seat during the weekends and midday hours of the week, but I am always happy to spend time inside Blue State. Their products are delicious and cheaper than most other coffee spots.
Zee took great care of us! First time but wont be our last
Best cappuccino ever!!☕☕☕
Great coffee! Also serves a variety of baked goods, soups, sandwiches, and salads. There are several vegan-friendly options. Everything I have ever tried at this cafe has been delicious. Generous servings, fair prices, friendly staff. But there is more to the story. This cafe is part of a small chain of college-town cafes with a mission: “To create vibrant cafes that reflect, improve and inspire our communities.” A percentage of the profits are donated to local charitable organizations, determined by votes of the patrons. Blue State sources and roasts fairly-traded coffees from around the world. Most of the food products come from small suppliers in the area. One caveat: Blue State is adjacent to Yale, and students with laptops pack this place, especially during exam times. If you want a seat, come early in the day when class is in session.
Only had coffee but it was delicious and I see they also have many snacks
I'm a big fan of their egg sandwiches, especially on the cranberry walnut bread. It's also one of the only area coffee shops that can make drinks with almond milk. I highly recommend the almond milk latte.
Decent coffee, expensive food. Sandwiches and salads are really expensive for what they offer. I would eat a bit more often if it was slightly cheaper. Otherwise, generally great service and definitely great cafe to study!!
in my opinion, the best coffee in New Haven with great espresso and pour over beverages on offer. They offer coffee from different local and international roasters and their selection is rotating pretty consistently. Their bagels are to die for as well. Finding seating can be hard at times and some of their non-coffee beverages leave something to be desired.
Excellent service! The staff was very attentive and friendly. Great place to enjoy a cup of coffee, lunch or just get some work done. Plenty of seating. Great atmosphere.
Good coffee and breakfast dishes!
Staff are always very nice and the atmosphere is conducive to doing work!
Great coffee, great croissant, fantastic staff.
There's a ton of great coffee spots in New Haven. Koffee? Willoughby's etc... This place wins. The best cold brew. The best coffee period. My favorite.
Fix your hours to match yelp and google! Supposed to be open till 11pm! Was excited to get coffee. This sucks!!!
(Translated by Google) The place is nice, and chai tea tastes good. Good price. (Original) El lugar es agradable, y el té chai sabe rico. Buen precio.
A pleasant place for a coffee
Good dark roast coffee. No good seating for groups larger than two.
coffee is good always crowded the sides are good as well
Last I checked, plastic was not an ingredient in the lox bagel sandwich. Yet, I found a piece of plastic as I was attempting to enjoy a nice breakfast from Blue State Coffee. I had placed a to-go order, and when I called them about the fact that I could have choked and been sent to the hospital, they seemed to respond as though this happens on a daily basis. The lady on the phone was extremely lax, unperturbed by the fact that a customer was at risk of physical harm, and said I could go back for a refund. Now, had I been hospitalized, I highly doubt that $8.15 would have been enough to cover the bill. Nevertheless, I went back to the place and once again, explained the situation. Never before have I seen such repulsive behavior and attitude. I had taken the bagel back to show them the chunk of plastic, and while I received my refund, the lady snatched the bag out of my hand and took it out of sight. If the plastic wasn't enough to get me hospitalized, the amount of shock that I experienced from such appalling customer service definitely was. They titled their shop quite accurately, as the experience there will most certainly leave you in a "blue state." P.S. I understand that the turtles are harmed by plastic, but I didn't expect that I would experience their pain firsthand. I learned the true meaning of "save the turtles."
Great tasting cappuccino, extra long hours. Spacious. Must try.
East coast coffee. First time here and I must say it's not so bad. Really good environment and overall just great.
My go-to coffee place. Perfect for informal meetings.
The iced mocha is awesome! Friendly staff. Love their community focus.
Solid coffee, friendly staff, relaxed vibe & great for working.
Great place for coffee, free Wi-Fi and a multi grain bagel and Yes they have peanutbutter! Clean and plenty of seats and buss your own table and don't forget to grab a wooden coin to give a percentage of your purchase to one of the 4 local Charities is located right behind you as you stand in line to pay.
Very confusing menu. Floors, tables, counters were dirty. Staff was very aloof.
Good coffee... food isn't the greatest.
Solid coffee. Nice vibe. Flavoured syrups for lattes are a little mild but don't let that stop you from trying this bright and friendly chain
(Translated by Google) good (Original) 굿
great blueberry mini scone
Egg and cheese sandwich was probably worst Ive ever had. Served cold. Almost no cheese.
Great, reliable chain for quality coffee and creative beverage twists. Sometimes waits are long because of short staffing, and the pastries leave a bit to be desired—nevertheless, this is my go to stop for coffee, and I recommend it for the drip, and the loose-leaf tea.
Wow very easy to use
Oh how I love Blue State. It's definitely a quintessential Yale hang -- especially if you're in one of the schools around that area. Their coffee is wonderful, their baked goods are delicious, and they also have a small selection of food (lunchy things, soups etc) that are pretty delicious! It's always super crowded mid-day, and sometimes a little difficult to find a place to sit.
Wish i could give them a full five stars but the afternoon crew isn’t all that friendly. I always come in the morning and they’re ALWAYS nice and quick.
One of the best places to order a cup of tea in all of New Haven.
Great place to stop for a coffee
Good coffee and free Wi-Fi.
Google maps got us to great coffee (and goodies) in a shop that was open late while we were out of town. Now we've been at three times of day & enjoyed three great experiences. That's a win!
It's a cute place. I was not pleased with the food at all. Bread was half toasted, the bacon and egg was warmed in the microwave and the smoothie was like water.
blue state is fine. ginger tea is excellent, coffee is just okay
Best coffee in New Haven
Food's a little expensive but coffee is quite good.
Must of gone on an off morning. Was busy which may explained the bitterness in my coffee.
(Translated by Google) Great coffee near Yale for a quick lunch (Original) Ottimo caffè vicino a Yale per un pranzo veloce
Lugar agradable y acojedor. Muy amable el personal.
Had decaf coffee. Nice easy-going place. Lots of table space to work. You don't feel cramped.
Locally sourced ingredients, best blueberry yogurt smoothie
I've lived in New Haven for about nine months and used to go here often, but Blue State can be a hit or miss for tea drinkers. It typically depends on how busy they are and who's making your tea. All said and done, Blue State is can be a great option when you're in a pinch and need a quick caffeine boost!.
Excellent coffee shop and coffee. Great service.
The baristas make an amazing hazelnut soy latte! The convenience of stopping by and the number of tables at the cafe make it quite popular with students.
Terrible coffee. Really. I have no idea why it's always crowded.
Excellent service and a decent latte
Great spot for coffee
Their chaider is a very warm combo of spices and cider - pleasantly tingly for a pallet. I have to give kudos to their foam which was plentiful and firm! Adding a picture here of their charity donations, it’s nice of them to use local foods and give back to community.
This company has exceptional coffee and teas, but I wouldn’t recommend anyone to work for Blue State Coffee. Coworkers will torment you and make you feel uncomfortable, and management is extremely poor. It’s imperative for every business to have a strong structured set of supervisors for the sake of customers and employees. If seeking employment consider this to be your last resort if you are in desperate need of a quick source of income. Former Barista at Blue State Coffee
Love this place, the coffee is incredible as well as the food which is locally sourced. The staff really knows how to make a proper drink, not just button pressing on machines, and their passion shows in the quality of their product. There’s a few New Haven locations and they’re all great. It gets busy and it can be hard to find a seat if you plan on staying but the area is nice to walk around the block and enjoy your drink.
The main (and possibly only) reason I go here is to have my daily dose of cascara. Ive had their coffee before and they're alright (but that's coming from someone who is not a huge coffee drinker). Cascara is where it's at. It's so good! I've had their baked goods before as well and they're quite on point. The cookies are enormous so just one is sufficient (even for people with a sweet tooth)!
Today I found out that Blue State Coffee responsibly sources all of their products from local businesses. I support them because they give 2% of their sales to charity and their coffee is really good! It's ideal if you need a nice spot to get some work done or if you're up for a good beverage and some people watching.
Nice spot to study with good coffee and people. Shout out to tiffanie the best barista there even though you're all great she the best
(Translated by Google) Good, friendly, earth, good coffee,
I have given a lot of business to Blue State Coffee since they opened. On Sunday, April 28, 2019 at about 6PM I came to Blue State Coffee on Wall St., & ordered the turkey sandwich (first item on the menu, $8.15) to go from the young male employee on duty. He promptly made up the sandwich and I was on my way in five minutes. He was competent and personable. On May 2, 2019 I returned at 6PM. There was no line, but the young woman on duty was busy chatting with her fellow workers (another young woman and a young man). There were no other customers waiting. None of the three employees were doing any work. When she took my order, I told her three times I wanted the turkey sandwich to go. She said it cost $7.50. I said, “The menu says it costs $8.15. I don’t want you to undercharge me.” So she increased the cost. I then waited 25 minutes, as I watched the other young woman and young man stand idly by chatting. During that time, they made three sandwiches, each of which consisted only of two pieces of bread with a spread on them, meaing each one took less than one minute to assemble. Finally, they handed me a plate with a chick pea sandwich. It was not wrapped to go. I said it was not what I had ordered, and that I had to be at work, so I could not wait another half hour for a corrected order. So I asked the cashier for a refund. At that point, the young woman tasked with making the sandwiches followed me, instantly belligerent and hostile. She began berating me and insulting me. Her body language suggested she might jump over the counter to start a physical altercation. She persisted in telling me what I had ordered, despite the fact she was nowhere near the cashier when I gave my order (repeatedly), and informed me that the fact I had to get to work and could not wait was not “on” her. The young woman at the cash register chimed in, belligerently and repeatedly telling me I had ordered chick peas and not turkey. Her English and hearing appeared unimpaired, so it is hard to comprehend how she confused “turkey sandwich to go” for “chick pea sandwich to stay.” I corrected her, stating I had ordered the turkey sandwich to go, and that I had corrected the price for her. If nothing else, the fact that I corrected the price (according to the menu) should have made her realize she had placed an incorrect order. The young woman tasked with sandwich raised her voice, claiming repeatedly that I was “rude.” I never raised my voice. I never berated either of these young women. I called them “ma’am,” which, where I come from, is a term of respect for any professional woman. I asked for a refund after waiting nearly 30 minutes for a simple sandwich to go. Having worked in the restaurant business, I know that it is understood that when people order food “to go” it is because they have pressing time commitments and thus cannot afford the time to enjoy leisurely meal at the location. The rudeness, hostility, belligerence, lack of personal responsibility, flagrant lollygagging, and unprofessionalism of these two young women was simply shocking. I have been employed, in many jobs, for over 50 years. I have cleaned toilets of rich people, worked in restaurants, been a receptionist and secretary, babysat, cleaned homes, and worked as an artificial intelligence software engineer, a professional musician, and an attorney. I have made sandwiches for soup kitchens, making dozens of sandwiches with multiple ingredients in far less than 30 minutes. Had I ever behaved as these two young women did towards me, I would have been instantly fired in any of these jobs. I will not be giving Blue State Coffee any more business. This is a disappointment, since their sandwiches (when properly made) are great, and, given that I spend a lot of my time doing pro bono work for charities, I loved the chance to support many of the charities for which raise funds.
I love love COFFEE ,the place was chill, enough room for everyone to do your own thing.
The baristas were really nice! I went with some friends and they ordered for me, and I’m not much of a coffee fanatic, but I loved whatever it was that I had to drink.
Buena variedad y precios algoo agresivos.Es un café fundado por graduados de Yale. El nombre hace referencia. La pertenencia política de sus dueños (demócratas).
Thrilled to find great coffee served by a great crew.
Delicious coffee, super nice staff
Cozy place. Really like their soup and scones.
The best Carmel Latte
Great coffee! Great atmosphere!
Blue State is a great place to work. They have a good wifi connection and plenty of space. Coffee is good, if a bit strong. Snacks are pricey, but the overall atmosphere is well worth it.
Great service. Love how they donate part of their profit to local organizations.
Drinks tasted pretty bad. Tea and smoothies were horrible, cookie was mediocre. Overpriced. Staff was friendly however, service was not too fast.
Good espresso, if not absolute best in New Haven
Great coffee! I highly recommend the macchiato.
Their breakfast offering healthy, their Cappuccino and Machiato, Love it. bakes awesome, reasonable price. nice place to hanging out during small break for next class. WIFI yes!!
Great ambience, unusual seeming dessert options. Unfortunately I didn't try them, but I was sorely tempted
Great atmosphere with hip music and a beautiful picture window in front. Was disappointed to get my latte in a paper cup even though I was ordering it for here. Latte quality = 2.5/4 (too hot, flavor ok, foam just ok, no art).
The coffee is awesome and the staff is very friendly and professional. It’s a great place to stop for a quick bite and coffee, or to sit down and relax or study for a bit.
Good coffee. They give 2% revenue to non-profits and let u choose which. There is a discount if you come with your own cup. Super nice people
Nice place, but not the best coffee
Great place for organic coffee.
Wish they would step their egg game up. They're all like precooked egg pancakes re-heated into a dry protein patty. Bagel and pastry game is decent. Coffee game
Very slow service. Don't go in if you are in a rush.
Nice cozy coffee place. Staff was very friendly.
Nice coffee shop. They have sweets and other eats. A lot of students. I thought the coffee was good.
lvoely place to eat and drink cofee i am going to tell al my friends enjoy this place amazing thanks!!
One of the best places to study
Goes to a good cause
Wonderful atmosphere, friendly staff
Best coffee in New Haven! The food is also really good.
Great food and a nice unique tea suggestion of blending chamomile with ginger. The barista was quick to suggest though not to let it steep for too long though.
Great selection of good quality coffee...my new go-to! Fast friendly service. They donate 2% of sales to select local organizations.
Solid establishment, using its power to better the local nonprofits of the community. Employees very nice and conversational.
Chill spot to sip some tea, do shots of espresso, or get crumby with a muffin. Mmmm, spicy, tasty chai latte. Open late'ish, till 11pm :) Limited "comfy" chairs/couches, but plenty of other tables/seats. Drink menu has some exclusives that you won't find at similar coffee/tea spots.
Great coffee, great food, good atmosphere for studying or hanging out.
Good coffee. Scones were not so great. Dry/hard. But great egg sandwiches and bagels!
Locale selvaggio per chi ama la musica dal vivo e un ambiente semplice e tranquillo. L' ingresso costa 5$ quando ci sono i live e di solito iniziano verso le 22.
Nice little coffee place in the heart of Yale. Can get crowded.
Very relaxing ambience for reading, engaging with friends, or just contemplating the universe not to mention serving plenty of great pastries and snacks.
They were nice and courteous to give us an iced coffee at an late hour and the place was clean. The coffee was good to the last drop and it's nice knowing it was sourced responsibly.
Good luck finding a seat. Because this place is great.
First off, there wasn't a picture or listing of their menu anywhere, so I've included a picture. Very impressed with this coffee shop. My coffee was delicious! They also allowed me to place a vote on what non-profit some of their profits would go to. (I picked one for doggies.) It was pretty crowded, but what else could you expect for a good coffee shop near a college. They also had gender-neutral bathrooms, which I was very impressed by. Making everyone feel welcome is important.
Nice large space , lots of yummy choices for a snack. The coffee was excellent and the service was great. Not super crowded , plenty of seating.
Busy usually. Thursday nights least busiest time to get stuff done. The hours really make this place. Coffees good people are REALLY nice. Don't use their wifi can't tell if it's good or not. But virtually an outlet everywhere on the right side of the shop.
Got to study at a table. It's sort of sit where you can. But people are cool and you can definitely get work done. It can be noisy so if you need quiet go to the library.
Nice place to sit and work. Decent coffee and pleasant staff.
Best coffee in New Haven for emergency responders
let me tell you this is the best coffee I have had besides the west coast and Costa Rica. espresso drinks are very good, pumpkin latte is out of this world.
Good Coffee.Homey but nothing much to add
Good spot. Friendly service, decent food. Always crowded with students so getting a seat is not always easy.
five stars! loved it!
Good working place
This review is about blue state coffee next to CVS in Hartford CT, I usually drink dunk in allot of people don't know that dunk in reg coffee is very weak in caffeine, less than burger king, less then McDonald's, blue state is an upscale coffee shop, nice people, friendly atmosphere, and darn good coffee, a bit pricey but nice selection, + you can drink one of there many beverages outside, nice, good safe location , try them out something new besides the same old joints.
Good quality coffee and food is pretty good, but service is veryyyy slow and staff are sometimes rude. Nice atmosphere for studying and coffee but don't come if you're in a hurry.
Great coffee! Their cappucinos are fantastic. Usually pretty crowded, so you might not find a place to sit and work/chill.
I love their oatmeal, their iced tea, their lattes and their local flare!
I am a hot latte drinker and unapologetic about it. This place does the best latte in all of New Haven hands down. All the other places just do a dirty pour. The barrista here takes such care in making lattes, plus the flavor is just right and mellow.
Their coffee is really delicious here and they have a wide variety of pastries, breads and treats. I have never tried their lunch options, but they have a lot. My only reservation is their service, it takes a long time if you order an espresso drink, and if you order a bagel toasted
Blue State Coffee is great if you want to wander awkwardly around the nooks of a cafe looking for a seat, trying desperately not to spill a drop of your precious third wave coffee.
You'll be hard pressed to find a better coffee spot in New Haven. Very good coffee and reasonably priced. This location can get a little too crowded during the school year, especially in the evening.
Not a fan of there coffee. The creamer/sugar station is always a mess.
Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The coffee came quickly (though the pour over/aero press take much longer). It was delicious!
Good coffee and fast service. Good place to read or study, but not a great place to socialize. It’s very quiet.
Great chai latte
Great place to study, catch up, or take a break. Popular with the Yale community and reasonably priced. Focus on social responsibility
Usual coffee stop prior to Symphony concerts. We always request decaf since it is always around 7pm. This was third such experience we decided to write it up. Terrible service with terrible staff attitude, almost to the point of racism and maybe ageism. It doesn't match with what this company stands for. Sad!
Just what i needed once i saw it on the counter - oatmeal. They didn’t know if they took amex tho, which was odd.
Still my favorite place to get a coffee or espresso in town. Depending on the time of day, getting a table can be hard, but the coffee is consistently good, and they keep adding to the food options.
Great coffee. Great mission. And compared to the other Blue State Coffees, there's actually good lighting and room to sit here.
Very nice atmosphere, good price and good food
good university coffee shop. sandwiches are a bit dry
The tea was way too strong. Better off using a syringe with that tea. Mind as well.
Great coffee spot. Bring a laptop and some work with you and try to snag a comfy chair at the back.
Good for vegetarians and the donate some profits to community organizations.
The coffee is fine, the croissant was mediocre. Staff are nice. They would be my only reason to return.
#Excellent all around Great Coffee & pastries Clean toilets Socially Conscious They donate to worthwhile causes STOP buying DD !
One of the best things CT has to offer is this wonderful small chain of coffee shops. They epitomize all the best attributes of the coffee house with good brews, good vibes, good baked goods, and friendly staff. Their coffee simply tastes super good. Plus, they donate money to good causes so you're definitely buying more than just coffee. Great place worth stopping in.
Good for studying
I don't usually go to the Wall Street location but I was in the area and stopped in for a quick coffee. I got a decaf Americano, which was excellent as always. their pastries are always good as well. I got a cinnamon Walnut mini scone. this location can be a little crowded at times but it was fine with the students away on vacation.
