If you're in Norfolk (pronounced Norfork) and you don't stop in here for coffee, you're missing out. The food is delicious, the atmosphere fun, and the coffee is freshly ground and brewed. From their website, "Our coffee roaster is a globe-trotter and coffee-buyer that allows us to proudly offer certified Organic, Fair Trade, Bird Friendly, and Environmentally Friendly coffees which...

Just about every Wednesday morning I stop in for a cup of coffee and and visit with friends. Always looking at what is being offered with a friendly and courteous staff. Meals are well prepared. Excellent location for a business meeting, there is enough privacy, and the WiFi connection is very good.

We needed coffee while in Norfolk and no Starbucks. Plus we needed a healthy, decent breakfast. We drove around until we spotted The Downtown Coffee Company on West Norfolk Avenue. What a nice surprise. The food was good according to my husband and it looked good. Since I am gluten intolerant, I know that most places in the Midwest and... More

The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxing. The courtyard made me feel like I was in New Orleans--flowers in bloom, good music. The food was tasty. I had salad one day--excellent home made dressing and egg salad the next. Not your usual mayonnaise loaded sandwich. My only complaint is that the waitress, who was very nice, did not tell me of...

My husband and I had some time to kill before an appointment. I go to Starbucks all the time, but it was on the wrong side of town. So we thought we would give The Downtown Coffee Company a try. I'm so glad we did! I went there once ages ago right after it opened and I hadn't been back... More

It was a great place to hang out and drink coffee on a cold day. They had a good selection of flavors and drinks to choose from. The menu looked great but we didn't eat there as it wasn't close to meal time.

Fun atmosphere to relax and chat with friends. Food at lunch is yummy and sweets to accompany coffee have been delicious too. I can't rate the coffee as I am not a coffee drinker, but the other drinks are warm and rich and scrumptuous (or cold and refreshing in the summer).

Not impressed by this place. My first time will definitely be my last. Very poor management. Staff was bickering - obviously a manager ordering staff around. Uncomfortable. Food was NOT good, coffee was even worse. McDonalds has better coffee. Don't waste your time or money.

Very nice atmosphere. Good breakfast and lunch options. I ate the breakfast Bagel Sandwich and was very happy with it. Feels like something you’d find in Omaha in the Old Market.

Good place to sit and enjoy a pastry in a small town, but the coffee shop is not that easy to get to, and the coffee was just okay, and not worth the trip. This did not seem like a coffee "company" at all. On the other hand, clearly the place to be if you are local...the big business men... More
