Great coffee shop with outdoor seating!

Great coffee with friendly service. This coffee shop had all the character of a local coffee shop with all the choices of a large, national chain. The coffee is locally brewed and is smooth and mild.

Great little coffee shop. Lots of outside seating. All the people in my party (4 of us) got breakfast sandwiches which were all good. The iced coffee is cold brewed, which I really like! I'd definitely go back to Frontside Grind the next time I'm in North Conway.

Nice coffee shop, reasonably priced. My wife got a bagel with avocado, which she said was delicious. I got a breakfast sandwich which hit the spot. Kids had a bagel and doughnut to hold them over. Friendly staff.

I frequent local coffee shops at home and was excited that North Conway didn't have any chain coffee shops like Starbucks or Dunkin down the main strip. However, we found out Starbucks probably would have been a better option in terms of service and quality of coffee. First of all, the girl behind the counter was rude and acted as... More

Stop here for coffee every morning I'm in No. Conway on vaca. Very good coffee. Similar to Starbucks grade. Add your own cream & sugar. This prep area needs to be larger. I haven't eaten the food but there's always people in there eating.

Very good coffee and muffins. Haven't tried their sandwiches, but I imagine they are good, too. This used to be in the Eastern Slope Inn and we had breakfast there regularly. Now it is out on the main street, so it has a lot of competition (for us, anyway)

Awesome coffee shop that I always bring friends too. Staff is really friendly. The drink menu has many options. I highly recommend their Iced Maple Latte and the fresh brewed Iced tea. I have also bought a pound of espresso to make at home - it was delicious!

My family stopped here prior to a rock climbing adventure with Synott Guides. Every other breakfast place was swamped - and then we found this oasis with delicious coffee and some breakfast offerings. There aren't tons of options - but its a coffee shop with the usual. The patio was large and off the busy road - so it was... More
