What's New in Albany, Schenectady & Troy

How Happy Is Your Cappuccino?

happy-cappiccino-logo.jpgThere is a new coffee shop open on Jay Street in Schenectady called The Happy Cappuccino.

They had a soft opening on Friday, September 30, 2011 -- not quite a month ago -- and they will be holding a grand opening ribbon cutting next month, Tuesday, November 15th. But I don't think I'll be waiting quite that long to pay them a visit...
"The Happy Cappuccino" - the name is genius, not to mention their logo looks like a smiling mug (how cute is that?), but it's the promise of great coffee that draws me.

Owner Matthew Robbins opened The Happy Cappuccino with a focus on the quality of the coffee, not just carelessly opening a coffee shop, but according to the Daily Gazette, hired "a coffee consultant who taught him... the intricacies of properly mixing a drink."

So I'm guessing their drinks are top notch.

...but as I'm looking through their Facebook photos (after drooling over their pumpkin latte pic for about 2 minutes (pictured at right)), I notice they also have cheesecake bites, muffins, scones and other baked goods that look delicious.

The Happy Cappuccino is located at 181-185 Jay Street in Schenectady.

Their hours:
Mon - Wed:6:30 am-5:30 pm
Thu - Fri:6:30 pm-9:00 pm
Sat:9:00 am-9:00 pm
Sun:9:00 am-2:00 pm

I have yet to try this place out. Has anyone been?

best coffee and drinks in the Capital district!!!

staff is friendly and the atmosphere is cheerful

I visited the place this afternoon while waiting for my son.
A great joint. My cappuccino was excellent.
We definitely need more places like this. I'm already sick of Starbucks.

Best coffee I've ever had, not to mention from Matt the owner, down to his awesome staff, Billy & Heather, top notch customer service... The guys from work and myself make the Happy Cap part of our daily routine during lunchtime and sometimes go back for seconds later in the day. Don't miss your chance to stop by and give them a try if your in Schenectady!
