Awesome coffee

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...

Cozy coffee shop located on the second floor of an outdoor clothing store. The owners are great, and the ambiance is very inviting. They have a living room area were you can relax and enjoy a great cup of coffee or hot cocoa. Perfect for a cold, rainy day.

Coffee was great, line was long but worth it. Would recommend Mocha! The service was great but slow, simply because only one man was on duty.

Their double shot Americanos saved my life. Well, it's not that dramatic, but close. Convenient location and good service are plusses as well.
