I love Water Street Coffee and the food is always good. It's a great place for a small bite and a great specialty coffee. The downside is both the parking and the horribly slow wifi connection.

Love the apple cider in the fall. The coffee products are good, although not sure worth the price. The food products are consistently good (regardless of what you buy, it will be edible), but nothing rave about.

It was a great place to get away, have a locally roasted cup of coffee and get some work done while on the road. Great seating & tables!

This is not only a great place to visit for an espresso or cup of Joe, but it is a great place to shop for gifts. We bought family members teas, coffee, mugs, etc. Lots of little handmade mugs and other art/knick-knacks to take home. The food is fresh and loaded with flavors. Staff is always friendly. A nice change... More

The coffee was okay - but 10.00 for 2 coffees? (Which i might add is not listed on the signs) It costs less to Starbucks it.

This review is for the new Water Street Coffee Joint off of Shaver Rd. and Center. Went here for a quick snack, got the vanilla cranberry cupcake and cranberry mango smoothie. Both are made with fresh ingredients. The smoothie is so good! The cupcake is full of cranberries so fresh. Yum. Will be going here alot this summer.

I used to like Water Street and would arrange meetings out of the office there when I could. But at some point, it became expensive -- especially the food. The baristas either overfill the mugs so that it's impossible not to spill some on the way to a table or, if you give them a travel mug, guess at the... More

Water Street roasts their own beans, blends their own teas and creates their menu items in the nearby commissary, making their offering all very fresh and delicious. Service is very quick and friendly and seating inside and out offer a high energy space to chill with friends or your favorite book. Food items are on the lighter side and vary... More

A very interesting and enjoyable little coffee shop. Beats any Starbucks in the country in my opinion and I have stopped into many in the U.S. Three or four other "Satellite" Joints in town and all with great coffees and service. "Interesting" patrons and "interesting" foods as well as great coffee drinks.
