Best Espresso in WS

Have been here before and was not disappointed. Small little cafe in a residential area and they do a good job with the espresso. I am very picky and used to very good espresso so i was not disappointed. Baristas technique probably could use some work (almost no tamp pressure) but the shots she... read more

this coffee shop has been out of business for years. The new owners have changed the name. The shop is iffy most of the time. Many times it has been padlocked due to the owner having no business sense and bills not being paid.

I would really really like to support a local coffee shop. Nothing against Starbucks, but I just prefer local. Unfortunately I can't support this one. I even went back a second time, just in case it was an off day. It wasn't. The guy running the place is the owner (I saw his photo in the newspaper) but, although it... More

The new place is an improvement. Few of same staff there. Simpler menu. Classier decor but still laid back and friendly. Still miss Sarah and Justin, the former owners, but this place is OK too

If people are calling this the best coffee shop in Winston, I don't think they've been to many coffee shops. The service was OK and my espresso was quite good, but they served my drink in a to-go cup even though I said I wanted to sit down and stay a bit. Good espresso doesn't taste the same in a... More

Delicious coffee, fresh pastries and Wi-fI availability. The owner is actually behind the counter. Gotta love that.

Inconsistent, inconsiderate owners brew a good cup but this is no way to start your morning. Corporate coffee never looked so good.

While the coffee was delicious, the owners seem to feel that they are superior to us lowly southerners and after trying the place several times, I will not go back. I am a friendly, kind person and at the least expect to be treated with a little respect-especially when spending my money with someone.

I go to Cafe Roche everyday that I am in town and love this place! I have traveled the world and find the customer service, quality of food/beverage and atmosphere to be the best! Since finding Cafe Roche back in November 2010, I have become friends with the owners (Sarah and Justin) and completely disagree with the viewpoint expressed concerning... More

Found Cafe Roche while on a quickie getaway to Winston-Salem. Best Cafe con Leche I've had since living in Florida. Great atmosphere, great people. We will definitely be back!
