Always busy, but for a good reason

Great selection of coffee! They have specialty drinks made with local honey or maple syrup. The smoothies and sandwiches are good too! This is a cozy cafe that is a great place to linger and read the paper or hang out on a rainy day.

I know what you are thinking. This is the one bad review for this place, I will just ignore it. But I feel like I am the person screaming the emperor has no clothes. Because the sizes are very small and expensive. The staff is snooty and rude. The food and pastries are mediocre at best. What put me over... More

One of the two best places in town to get coffee and breakfast. On the run or sit outside. Coffee the way you like it and excellent sandwiches.

Great spot for coffee. Packed with locals and tourists alike. They clearly take pride in their coffee and you can taste it in the final product. I am not a coffee snob so I can't really give a detailed review of their coffee compared to other similar establishments but I can say that this was on my short list of... More

This is a great place for coffee drinkers but also for tea drinkers. It was a first time visit but I would definitely stop in again. Although it can be a little pricy, you can have your drink just the way you like it and have some down time in a relaxing atmosphere. There are various seating options which is... More

This is obviously a place locals enjoy and it is easy to see why. Probably my best non-franchise coffee experience. I only had the standard dark roast coffee and a cinnamon roll, but they were terrific. The prices were great, we paid less than $10 for two coffees, a cinnamon roll (which was wonderful) and a bagel with cream cheese... More

We made our first trip to Frontside while staying in North Conway and we could have gone every day! The breakfast sandwiches were delicious and the coffee and espresso was top-notch! We WILL be back!!

We had a long in line to order our food, and then for them to prepare it. It was very busy. But the food and coffees were both great.

Enjoyed a delicious quick home made breakfast here. Smoothies and lattes were both delicious also. Nice to support a local business.
