Ok...Could have been better

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

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.

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

Unfortunately, we chose a day that was extremely busy with people visiting Blowing Rock. We were VERY hungry and couldn't deal with the at least 45 minute wait to be seated (and then who knows how long to get food served) at one of the other restaurants to find something to eat! We were soooo happy to find Kojay's!! This... More
