Stopped in with my wife & we both had the bbq pork burrito...it was fantastic! The homemade potato chips were good too. It's a coffee shop & bookstore but to my surprise, they sold microbrews too. So I grabbed a pint to wash down that tasty sandwich. The floor could have been swept a bit, but it was great nonetheless.

A small-town hub for food, drinks and live local music on weekends. A good place to get the feel of the community. All ages feel comfortable...if you're casual.

A great place to relax and have a pot of tea and a meal. It's easy to get into the habit of listening to good music on the weekend in your second living room -:) Thanks Rock City!

Pastries are divine, chips are amazing, atmosphere was beatnik, but the service wasnt friendly and it cost me 2 bucks to refill my tiny coffee mug. That doesn't leave me feeling great about the place. Who does this?

The best coffee from around the world!!! Roasted just around the corner. Every person that works at this place is sure to put a smile on your face. In a land of starBux n Junk n' donuts - Rock City is a place for people who really enjoy a good cup-a-joe :- )

Rock City started out as a coffee roaster, and their coffee bar is still wonderful. The food is quick, nicely done, and just what you need during a day of shopping or sightseeing in Rockland.

I try to visit locally owned coffees shops wherever I am, this is my go-to in the Camden-Rockland area. We also buy the organic French roast for home consumption.

We popped in for coffee on our way out of town on Monday and found the staff to be as great as its coffee. Very accommodating with our order. Will stop here again.
