Enjoyed this Place

We came here for coffee one cold afternoon. After dining at a place just down the road, we were not ready for more food. However, I noticed the portions were plentiful and the pricing better than many other options in town. We ended up getting food here after all 2 days later. the coffee was... read more

Bought two cappuccinos that were OK, however, the place looks like it has not had a good cleaning in - forever! I realize there had been a lot of snow, so I took that into consideration for the floors with foot traffic, but...the place is just dirty. I actually saw an employee wipe up a spill on the floor and... More

On a day where every place in Blowing Rock was on an hour wait to be seated, we though we hit the jackpot by finding Kojay's. We were wrong. Although we got our food pretty quickly, and found a table, we were disappointed. I had the broccoli soup and it was super oily. It was almost like the cream base... More

We had breakfast at Kojays after an overnight stay in Blowing Rock as part of a driving holiday in the USA. Standard breakfast fare, with an emphasis on bakery lines, but nicely presented and with good service. It was a cool and sunny morning, so we found a seat on their front verandah that looked out onto Main Street.

This place could be great. Good location, porch outside. However, I've noticed that visitors sometimes have trouble locating their entrance. You can't get in through the porch (which is what some try). So, you have to wiggle around the side to find the door. I just wonder if some visitors pass it by and choose something else with a more... More

We stopped here for a quick breakfast and were pleasantly surprised with the coffe/latte selection along with the breakfast menu. The staff was very nice. Nothing fancy just a good solid place to get some really good coffee and food.

Coffee is good and that's what your going for but girls working counter need some training. Always good to great your customers as soon as they open the door with a Good Morning, welcome to our coffee shop. Again, small locally owned coffee shop but with a few small touches with the staff this place could really rock.
