1.99 for coffee refill

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.

One night we could not fine a light dinner anywhere that had an interesting dessert so we ended up here. Had good salad with organic Plainville turkey and delicious pie. There were so many choices. We had the blue berries, containing blue and black berries. There was also red berries and several other choices and regular bakery items. Topping it... More

not a restaurant that serves coffee. Cafe Mocha was good but far from exceptional. Price is high for what you get.
