Wow!!! another great experience at Blue Max Coffee Roasters & Café 26 Lathrop Ave. Forest Park

On steamy Friday I easily parked at Blue Max and headed in to pick up lunch to go...folks genuinely smile and greet you there...ordered a vanilla iced latte and a veggie chicken wrap. Asked how long it maybe, was told about 10 -15 mins, I let them know I was stepping outside to make a call. Moments later a girl opened the front door and handed me my drink... It was so so sweet and I let her know. In the process of hanging up my call, and getting my phone back into my purse I dropped my so yummy and refreshing looking ice cold drink. I was grateful it went over the railing and not on their entry porch; I retrieved the plastic cup, top and straw from the landscaping. Went inside with a silly oops grin knowing I must purchase a replacement… it looked just too good to miss. The cashier and girl who delivered the drink could tell something was up given my expression, I let them know of my miss hap and that I wanted to purchase a replacement. They wouldn't hear of it, it was on them...the girl who delivered it was so kind and grinning said she probably made the cup to slippery. A moment later she handed me a new beverage with a cardboard gripper, we shared a chuckling exchange of how this could avoid a repeat. I'm fairly sure I was glowing as I expressed my gratitude for their service. I sat in my car and enjoyed a sip of my drink that was living up to the expectations and half of a really really amazing tasty sandwich.
Blue Max, and ladies thank you, you made a good day even that much better!!!! This is not the first time you have over exceeded my expectations of service. Keep up the great work!

Absolutely agree, their food is only improved by their friends and impeccable service. They always put a smile on my face :)

Yeah, BlueMax does make a good home office. I just wish the back were as cozy as the front of the shop. Love working there in the winter when the fire place is roaring.

Agreed on all accounts. I'll drive out of my way to get my coffee at Blue Max (as I did this morning!)

Blue Max is my second office. Their food is excellent, the coffee fresh and robust, the staff is unfailingly friendly and welcoming, the space is comfortable, inside or out. It's one of those rare little gems you just have to be grateful you found.

I enjoy their scones. Some of the best I've ever had.
