We stopped into this coffee shop which is in a loft area above an outdoor (think REI) provisions store. Very clean, neat and eclectic. Loved the Lavender Latte. Great relaxing areas to take a break while touring Blowing Rock.

We were blown away by this coffee shop! The coffee is superb and the friendly folks working here make you feel right at home. You've got to check it out if you're in town!

I know things can be expensive in blowing rock but 12 dollars for two frappes is crazy. The price is out weighed by the fact they were both terrible. Worse and more expensive than starbucks. Come on .49 charge for whipped cream. Total waste of money. HORRIBLE . Don't go here.

Based on other reviews, I guess I expected too much. I thought the coffee was okay but it was served very, very hot. Too hot to even be able to hold the cup. Also, their selection was far less than what is posted on their web site.

We had a hard time finding this little coffee shop - it's upstairs in the Footsloggers shop. The store front has a little white, round sign for Bald Guy Brewery, so watch for the Footsloggers sign - much easier to see. Our search & the climb up the stairs was worth it, tho. The lady barista (who I think is... More

Jason, Amanda, Bru...all have the gift of sincerity and a real warmth in their greeting. They all make a screaming cuppa, but they really care about their product and about you...the customer. They deserve gold. Best coffee and best baristas in High Country, hands-down

We try not to patronize large coffee franchises, and prefer to seek out independent shops. This is located on the second floor above a shop, and there are quite a few stairs (which might limit some visitors). There was one barista working the counter, giving individualized attention, carefully explaining beverage options, describing coffee bean flavor, or answering any other question... More

This is my second year of visiting relatives in Blowing Rock and more visits to Bald Guy Brew. The baristas are very knowledgeable about coffee and their selection is extensive. Their location has a nice den-like area with couches and chairs to relax and enjoy your java. It is located towards the less crowded end of the seemingly always tourist-heavy... More
