Came here as i had looked at the reviews and wanted to give it a try while in Rockland. there were 4 of us, we ordered 2 sandwiches and 2 soups. The cashier was not overly enthusiastic or memorable. We ended up waiting for more than 20 minutes (after being told it would 15) so perhaps staffing should be looked... More

Best coffee and best informal breakfast in town. Lunch is great too. I walk there most morning in Rockland when I'm not going for a "full sit-down breakfast." I get an egg wrap and my wife most often has a slice of awesome fruit pie. Lunch wraps and soups have been very good too.

We love Rock City and visit almost every morning during each visit to Rockland the last three years. Excellent coffee. Incredible baked goods. It's such a delight to have an outstanding locally owned coffee house (still like Starbucks, but I'm so happy to have Rock City in town while on vacation!).

Cute place with nice lunch choices and a good ruben, would rate it good to very good, not great. If you give sodas fancy names, you've got to make them a little taste a little more special, perhaps add a little "real" fruit juice instead of so sugary. Nice casual atmosphere.

We stopped in to hunker down and type for a bit. The iced chai was wonderful. They had soy milk which was great. The woman at the counter was very nice and also very nicely decorated (had a wonderful sleeve that featured several aquatic animals...fun!) A nice laid back place.

We enjoyed our Sunday brunch breakfast burritos and coffee while listening to live Blues during the Blues Festival. Can get a little overcrowded at times with wi-fi users, but we've always managed to find a table.

You think you've had good coffee but wait til you get here. Fresh roasted at their roastery two blocks away, prepared by pros and served up with fresh bakery and light food - it's the best you can get! Live music most weekend nights and the special treat is Irish music sessions like in the old country. A piece of... More
