If you are in downtown Madison by the Capitol building and looking for a quiet place to read a book, do schoolwork, spend time with friends, drink a cup of coffee or be an art lover, Michelangelo Coffee House is the place to go.
The coffee house has two entrances: the main entrance on 114 State St. and the back entrance on North Carroll Street. The place’s antique furniture perfectly matches the art on the walls.
You feel you are entering an art exhibit. Besides the free Wi-Fi, the coffee’s smell and antique feel make this place cozy.
With a welcoming smile from the barista behind the counter inviting me to place my order, I ordered an oat milk hot latte and cheese pesto sandwich. The coffee house was busy; still, my coffee was ready while I was ordering my sandwich and the latte was good.
After I paid for my order, which cost me around $12, I walked to the room in the back and sat down, waiting for my sandwich.
The artwork hanging on the walls kept me busy. Two or three other people were holding their books and reading. It took about 10 minutes for my sandwich to get ready.
The sandwich was delicious. It was buttery and creamy on the inside and crunchy on the outside, perfect amount of cheese, fresh tomato and not too much pesto; exactly right.
I enjoyed the sandwich a lot. I thoroughly enjoyed that morning and am planning to go back soon. It was a very satisfying meal in a unique and cozy place. Michelangel’s is open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day of the week.
