Great place for a great coffee and outfitting

Upstairs in FOOTSLOGGERS. This place has great coffee, beans are processed locally by a guy who knows how to blend and not to over roast. Nice little place to sit and relax. Also downstairs is the best outfitter store in the area. Bryan, the manager, is very knowledgeable of local outdoor... read more

Yup, they use irganic, free trade coffee, what Starbucks aspires to do, but it's locally owned, beans are roasted in Boone so you get the freshest, cleanest sip every time! It's an odd but easily found location, so go and enjoy!

Friends and I absolutely love coffee. What we loved even more was a great cup of joe while relaxing with one another in the upstairs lounge room. Comfy chairs, great staff, and a dynamic selection of caffeine options. Coffee in hand, and a great outfitters store on the first floor was the perfect combination. Great way to start off our...

We discovered at this place while shopping at footslogger which is below the coffee shop. Coffees are great -- better than the teas. Great place to catch up on news-- NY Times and local news too! We enjoyed the retro lounge which overlooks Main Street. Fast internet! We would definitely come here again since we love coffee shops.

We dropped in to this outdoor/coffee shop looking for a nice cup of java. The coffee shop is located upstairs and we were pleasantly surprised with the coffee quality and the service we received. The coffee is a local roast and organic certified. The barista was really nice and the price was on par with what you would expect. We... More

If you are in Blowing Rock and you love good coffee, you need to go to Bald Guy Brew. It's right above footsloggers on Main St. Good coffee. Nice knowledgeable staff.

Super friendly barista and a nice spot to relax for a few minutes and reenergize! Barista was very helpful in creating something out of the ordinary - so putting this place on my return list!

Went this morning and got two hot chocolates, a tall regular, and a small decaf. Have been here every time we come to Blowing Rock and will always come back. Consistent, really good, neat atmosphere, and friendly.

We went to coffee shop based on trip advisor reviews. Atmosphere nice . One of us had a specialty tea which was good. 3 of us had frappuccinos which were very weak. Tasted more like watered down coffee then expresso. Very disappointed in them---very expensive for what you got.
