Average coffee at the Bald Guy Brew above Footsloggers in Blowing Rock. The owner/operator is very kind. Muffins are pretty awful, but maybe they were a few days old when I had them. Will give it another try next weekend.

Loved service and food, plus great beer! This is a cute place in a converted old home. The brewery is out back and you can tour that during the day, too. The food is trendy and delicious!

Great stuff here and by the by it's upstairs and on top of that they offer a military discount so that only sweetens the deal.

Super FRIENDLY and efficient service. Loved the off the beaten path vibe. Would have loved a more "mellow" coffee as it seemed what is offered is of the Starbucks flair; however, they have A LOT of coffees and I probably ordered the wrong one. Fair trade/organic/military discount. How can you go wrong? Lots of teas too.

Best coffee in two weeks of travel in North Carolina, Virginia and DC. These guys know what they are doing and are very friendly. They roast their own beans, sourced from all over the world. The cafe was warm and cozy, perfect on a freezing day. It's a little hard to find (it's upstairs in a great outdoors store, Footsloggers)... More

Excellent coffee. This place is a gem in the town and you may not find it if you're not looking. It's worth the visit. I even took beans home for gifts. When I can't get up to BR, I order online. I love all the people who work there, everyone is so friendly.

took a detour to Blowing Rock when driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. Very charming village. We had a cup of coffee at the Bald Guy Brew. It's conveniently located in the village, upstairs in a hike/outdoors equipment store. Great atmosphere.

I travel to Blowing Rock several times a year and always look forward to getting an excellent cup of coffee at Bald Guy Brew. They roast their own beans and brew to perfection. The baristas are well informed on the products they serve. I've tried many different coffees their but my personal favorite is a Latin American blend called "El... More

Cute place above an outdoor gear store in the shopping historic district. The baristas each day were friendly and brewed excellent coffee with fancy touches. Definitely worth the stop.
