Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

First off they are not at 217 any more. They moved to a new spot at 145 WOlf Road in the Shoppers Plaza. Two rooms off the main room offer some quiet for work or gatherings while the main room is open and spacious. Cafe Menu with sandwiches, salads, wraps and fresh baked treats. They roast their own coffee and have local loose leaf organic teas. Great for personal gatherings or business meetings (they rent the rooms for social or business needs). I will be back when on Wolf Road and in the area.

Any time I travel, I give it my best effort to visit as many local coffee shops as possible. I am an avid Chemex coffee brewer so hotel coffee just doesn't cut it for me. Luckily Professor Java's was right down the road from our hotel. The food selection is as vast as the coffee selection. The usual suspects (latte, cappuccino, mocha, espresso, americano, etc.) are all available and there are several special drinks as well. I chose a mocha and my wife got one of the specialty drinks and both were great. We are in this area occasionally so this spot will stay on the "return to" list. The staff is very friendly as well. Just an FYI, this place is tucked back in a strip mall like location so it may be a bit tough to find at first as it is not very visible from the road.

Looking around for a later breakfast establishment. Found this place! Hard to make up my mind but ultimately chose the Pigwich! Did not disappoint. I can’t wait to come back! Cheers! Oh and the eggs are real

I remember the old Professor Java’s as cheerful and clean. This place is dark and was not clean. The staff was pleasant and one did clean a table for us. However, my friend’s sandwich had an ingredient left out and my salad was not at all good.

Delicious iced mocha latte with oat milk and comfortable outside couch seating, shady on a hot day. A good spot to meet friends before/after a trip to the Albany airport.

had been there for breakfast, since the hotel breakfast did not really attract us, good coffe and heavy breakfast selections with lots of eggs, I chose 2 chocolate muffons which were heavy and enough. Recommended for people who ca handle heavy food in the morning

Two of us traveling. One had a light roast coffee, I had my normal dry cappuccino. They roast their own coffee in the shop, so the beans are "fresh". Staff is very friendly and checked to make sure we were happy. Breakfast sandwich and wrap were made fresh...and tasty. They have a separate room - called the "library" - where people can go and hang out, work, study, without being interrupted. Self-serve if using that area. It also looks like it is set up for meeting. Nice...

Stopped in with a friend for breakfast. The medium roast coffee was spot on and the breakfast bagel sandwich, despite including what appeared to be precooked bacon, was nicely done. Much better than a coffee chain experience.

Professor Java's is a must-stop whenever I'm in Albany. Their coffee drinks are inventive and tasty. Their food is also delicious, and I love their pastries as well. Can't go wrong. Their prices are also good. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. The smell of all the coffee is so amazing!

I went to college in the area, and Professor Java's was my go to study spot. Now that I stop through Albany when I ski or hike, I still go to Professor Java's for the awesome coffee drinks and food. The breakfast sandwiches are delicious, and you can't go wrong with a Professor croissant! Always amazing. Professor Java's forever.

the coffee here is outstanding, the espresso is smooth and has no bitterness or sharp taste. The baked goods are good and a little unique because they use corn meal for a lot of the items, I like itmy wife doesnt, so its a matter of taste.

4.13.19 Fair prices, nice ambiance, solid selections. Our group works over by the Nanotechnology and Crossgates Mall and we all wish there was one of these on Western Avenue so we could all meet there. We need something in that area that is not a Starbucks. the Doctor Hit me with some BIG LOVE ❤️💕 and a helpful VOTE! Written 4.13.19 the Doc!

The location may have changed by the time you read this, but 25 successful years on the same street corner says much of what you need to understand and appreciate about the Professors expertise. My wifes 3 shot Latte was very well made, full strength, hot and flavorful. The author went rogue and picked the Bees Knees, a lavender and honey marvel that earned an "A" for execution and flavor. The vegetable wrap was a fat 'n sassy tube of healthy, enough with the chips to take part 2 to lunch. And then, muffins. Corn muffins, fruitful with juicy blueberry bits, capped with a just crunchy enough top. There were other delicious looking (and smelling)items of interest, and a customer base as varied as the menu. The decor made a couple of Traveling Texans feel right at home. Suspect you'll feel the same.
