We love Bald Guy Brew! We usually buy enough to get us though for 6 months because the coffee is just that good! Bold, but not that bite you back kinda coffee. Hot Chocolate is delicious, the coffees are beautiful and tasty! A must stop for any coffee lover!

A little out of the way, but worth the trip. FYI: Coffee shop is upstairs. I have been there a few times and always great coffee and staff.

This is the best coffee in the high country. Roasting, brewing and service. True baristas with a passion for their craft.

Excellent place to grab a quick breakfast in Blowing Rock. Loved the coffee, and the scones were delicious. Will definitely be back next time we're in town.

Stopped by while walking around Blowing Rock, NC. Easy to miss, but charming little spot. We had a tasty Mocha, and a flavorful carmel macchiato(?).
