We use fair-trade organic coffee, locally roasted by Notorious Coffee Roasting Co. It is roasted in small batches weekly to keep it as fresh as possible. Milk shakes are also made the old fashioned way,using all premium vanilla ice cream and we offer all fruit smoothies made with real whole fruit. Our sweet treats are made by local bakeries here in Asheville. You can drink coffee anywhere, but how about atop an authentic 1963 British Double Decker Bus? You can't beat the coffee or the setting in Downtown Asheville. « less

This was a very cool place we stopped into and visit. My girls purchase an ice cream for a treat. This is cash only transaction. This place is very clean and relaxing. We decided to sit upstairs in the bus to give our feet a rest. It's a great place to sip on coffee and read a book. Don't past... More

I am honestly taken aback by the review below me! I went to the bus on one of my recent (&frequent) trips to Asheville this past weekend. I have always driven by the bus on previous trips to the area and marveled at its "coolness" so I decided to finally stop in. It is so cute! The atmosphere was great... More

We had looked forward to visiting this charming venue for coffee and dessert during a recent visit to Asheville. It looks so fun---from the OUTSIDE. Once inside we had to listen to the baristas complain about tourists, even using obscenities. "Can you believe the audacity of tourist to come on to that bus and take PICTURES?!?! And you know these... More

It's a cute idea and worth stopping in for a cup of coffee and/or muffin. Nothing really special food-wise, but it's a fun idea and unique to experience at least once while you are in town

Great muffins, coffee drinks, and kids love pretending to drive the bus. They could spend an hour here hanging out and pretending to drive. One think to keep in mind is that it is cash only!

I was expecting a Hooter's coffee shack, what I got was a hip double decker bus with tasty beverages. Their blended lattes were so good, I was going on constant pick up runs while staying at my hotel next door. This is definitely a fun place to bring your family as well, there were always kids messing around on the... More

This was my second time visiting Double D's and it was just as wonderful as the first time. They make a great iced latte and have fast friendly service. A wonderful eclectic place to spend a few minutes sitting and sipping a cool drink.

An interesting novelty stop, the coffee was okay. The service was on the rude side of quirky. It's a cool spot but there are too many other places to get coffee in town. Plus, it's a cash-only establishment which is a drag.

Well, the title says it all. If you want great coffee, go elsewhere. Its very plain and not always hot. The location is great as it truly is near the heart of Downtown Asheville. There is better coffee with an equal or better atmosphere elsewhere. My recommendation is to stop, take a picture, then move on down the road for... More

The bus is really cute and it's worth a visit to see how it's been converted to a coffee house. I believe you should buy something if you come in for a peek, but the coffee is nothing special at all. There's no decaf lattes, espresso or frappes, only decaf brewed coffee that wasn't very fresh. Maybe the desserts are... More
