Keep Calm and Drink Coffee

I was running late for work this morning so I couldn’t stop to grab my “average cup of Joe” from Dunkin Donuts. Matter of fact, I skipped coffee altogether this morning and by lunchtime, I needed an IV full of it. One of my co-workers suggested I stop into Spill’n the Beans located on 3rd Street in Troy before I headed to Subway for a sub. 

Let me tell you, I am more than thrilled that my co-worker had suggested Spill’n the Beans not only for their coffee, but for their food and bakery items! Thank goodness there was a line (which moved fast) because I was stumped on what to order. As I was waiting for my food that I ordered, I spent my time sipping on the Americano Macchiato with an extra shot of espresso (remember, I missed my morning coffee). 

Now, you know Average Joe loves me some good ole’ chili, so when I saw it on the menu, I couldn’t pass it up. Spill’n the Beans makes their homemade chili with enough kick in it to satisfy your taste buds in every bite. Also, to top my chili off, they added homemade cheese croutons. YUM.

I also ordered the Prosciutto Di Parma Panini sandwich to go along with my soup. The Panini was layered with fresh mozzarella, provolone, fontina, and basil pesto. The fresh mozzarella and provolone on the Panini tasted like no other! 

The soup and Panini came out within ten minutes, perfect timing to use their Wi-Fi, so I could check my e-mails and get caught up on my Tweets before heading back to the office. 

Even though I was stuffed, I had to eat my bakery item that was staring right at me! I ordered a slice of carrot cake, now this is not my usual order (I’m usually a chocolate brownie kind of guy), but man was I satisfied.

Spill’n the Beans is a great place for a quick pit stop to drink, eat, and relax. 


  1. Am I ever glad that you reviewed this place to try. I am so sick of Starfuks and their garbage, overpriced poor excuse for java. Thank you for enlightening me.

  2. the food is very good I agree, but a tad bit overpriced.

  3. Correction, you ordered the Prosciutto Di Parma Panino sandwich. Panini is the plural form of Panino.
    Don't feel bad, it is one of the most common written and spoken mistakes. I enjoy your blogs, give my regards to the dog please!

  4. Have just encountered your page and I guess you should be complimented for this piece. More power to you!
