Friendly service and great chai!

My husband is a hiking fanatic so of course he had to stop in at Footsloggers. This little coffee shop is upstairs. I ordered an iced chai tea latte and I believe it was the best one I have ever had in the history of ever. Husband just had straight black coffee, he said it was strong, not bitter... read more

Prices are a little high, but well worth it. This is some jacked up coffee :) Will be returning for sure!

Stopped in for a warm drink with my husband on our honeymoon. Super nice guy, and the most delicious chai latte I've ever had! Husband got a chilled black peach tea, and he enjoyed it, too! Very cool little upstairs nook! Check this place out!

We met Jason at this coffee seminar that took place during the Blue Ridge a Wine Festival. The coffee was so amazing we could not wait to get it again and went back later that day. This was our first time trying this kind of coffee from other countries and now we are spoiled! We learned so much about coffee... More

Favorite coffee shop in Blowing Rock! It can be easy to miss tucked upstairs in Footsloggers, but it is worth the trip in. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the coffee is awesome. The peanut butter cup mocha is ridiculous.

We had a bit of a challenge trying to figure out how to access this shop, but when we did, we really liked its cozy feel. The young man behind the counter was extremely friendly, and the coffee was great. We would certainly return when we get back to this neighborhood.

I am a coffee snob and I have to say this is one of the best coffees I have had in my life. Can't wait to go back to Blowing Rock just for the coffee at Bald Guy!

This was a fun coffee shop to try. Jeff was super nice and encouraged us to try something different. Everyone's drink was delicious! This will be a stop from now on when in Blowing Rock.

Everything is as it should be: coffee, sweet snacks, happy staff, great atmosphere. It's a pretty small place, but that just sort of adds to its character.

My wife and I came to this coffee shop both mornings during our weekend getaway in Blowing Rock, NC on 2/20/2015. The shop is really cool on the second floor in a loft style location looking over Main St. The staff is super friendly, coffee was excellent, place was super clean, and the owner also offers a Military discount which...
