The Golden Roast Melrose

All around solid coffee and specialty drinks, comfortable seating, convenient location. One time I got a headache because the bottled cold brew was a little strong but that's not GR's fault. Will continue coming back.
Good coffee and nice atmosphere. They do need to update their business hours though. Google says they close at 3pm on Sundays so my friends and I went to order and sat down at 1:30, only to have a worker come to us tell us they closed at 1:30…
I’ve been to this location three times. I’ve ordered the same drink every time and I have to say for $6 it’s garbage.
1. It just tasted like watered milk. No flavor.
2. Was worse than the first. Watered down flavorless latte
3. I had grounds in my cup. And not just a little. But a significant amount of grounds. The latte was so bitter I couldn’t drink it.
For a $6 I am completely disappointed and won’t return.
The good- I had the Samocha which was a coconut mocha which was delicious. I ordered extra espresso as I usually do I love my coffee stronger. She immediately offered a little extra flavor and half n half in place of milk. She showed an understanding of the drinks she was making and did it all. The espresso looked nice coming out with a nice crema being formed. A+ drink!

The bad- I discovered it by mistake is tucked back in on campus but that's probably because that's who is really meant for but if you want to bypass the chain on main and get up around the corner you'll find a far better coffee.

The Ugly- the are not in Michigan

Overall- nice atmosphere, though I took it to go, nice set up great coffee worth the explore to find it if you are not in campus to know where it's at.
This is a customer on my route you will not fine a more friendly staff. quality of products i see the shop front to back very clean and sanitize.
