Excellent for fresh coffee and cakes

The cakes were very tasty and lots of fresh coffee. The only observation is that the coffee was served in paper cups - not what I expect when eating or drinking in such a nice establishment. Paper cups should only be used for fast food outlets.

First of all, downtown Blowing Rock is incredible. A beautiful place to visit. Kojay's is a really cool place as well, located in the middle of town. The coffee is good, and the food I've had has always been excellent. However, I have been there probably a dozen times in the last year and inevitably it is the longest wait.... More

This coffee stop was convenient, but coffee is only so-so. Nice, friendly service. Fast, free internet. Very pleasant to sit outside and watch the tourists stroll by

Hip place to sit, enjoy the sites of Blowing Rock and have a coffee beverage. Breakfast, lunch and bakery items are all good.

During our recent Family Reunion, a small group of us gathered together for lunch on the porch at Kojays. The food was ample, well-made, and tasty, however the place is small and felt crowded. The flow for ordering and pick-up was confusing to several people. No one seemed to be cleaning the dining room tables as people left. The unisex... More

This is a nice place to take a break from wandering town. Our coffees were excellent and they have pre-chilled espresso for iced drinks as well as pre-chilled coffee! The baristas were helpful and friendly and handled a small rush with ease. We ordered some wraps for lunch and a half wrap is what I'd consider a whole, so splitting... More

Great place to grab a pastry or breakfast sandwich and a specialty coffee. Outdoor deck allows dogs but there is no gate so you just have to scoop up your pet and carry him over and back. Chai latte was delicious. Husband outordered me - he got a BLTE sandwich on wheat toast - the E was egg. It looked... More

Food was thrown together and had little taste. The place might be ok to grab a cup of coffee but would I not recommend otherwise.
