Good coffee and freshly baked pastries

Went to get a coffee and some pastries to go. However there was a line so it wasn't a quick stop, service was a bit slow, not enough tables to sit, maybe need to organize better when high season. Coffee was good and cinnamon roll was awesome. Staff was overwhelmed but friendly.

Went here for breakfast before leaving town. You order at the counter. I opted for the French toast; it was good, nothing out of the ordinary. Had to ask for some butter to go with. The sausage patty was good also. My daughter opted for a frittata, and she noted that it tasted good also. The iced tea initially, was... More

Walking through town with friends and this little place is at the far end. Serves several homemade desserts and pastries. Lots of icing on them :(. I prefer healthier items. Checked if they did crepes but no luck. They have facilities to make them and for an afternoon tea it would have been delightful. Checked on non caffeine beverages and... More

Cute little cafe, but not especially outgoing friendly staff. Food was average, coffee was good. Overall just OK

Honestly we stopped here because we were starved, it was past lunch time, and several other restaurants in town had ridiculous wait times. However, the staff was very helpful. After we sat down to eat, other customers came in and the place was full. Our food was good but average. There were issues with supplies running out (napkins, toilet paper... More

We were in Blowing Rock on a very cold day - downtown was also very crowded. Thought a little coffee shop would at least keep the line moving pretty quickly though - nope. Took 10 minutes to wait in line - then another 15-20 to get our coffee and lemon bar. The staff were probably overwhelmed that day, but they... More

They have a cleanliness rating of 84%. I probably would have left if my husband would have let me. The food was good. The service was decent.

The food was good and the staff was friendly. I'm an iced tea drinker and I do wish restaurants would totally dispose of instant. My husband said the coffee was very good.

This place is missing out on what it COULD BE. The tables were small and old looking, the service was inattentive and there was little attention to detail. The bagel did not have enough cream cheese with it to cover even one side of it. And the COFFEE WAS VERY MEDIOCRE and even WEAK. You would think that a place... More
