Best Coffee Ever

I may have just got lucky, but I got the best mocha I ever tried here today. Not too sweet and they used a really high quality chocolate. I will definitely go out of my way to return.

This is the best cafe we've found on the mainline. Friendly staff (although the line can be a little long as the coffee is so popular), good atmosphere and good coffee and food. Our favorite is the soup and sandwiches. The artwork is also great and can be bought!

As a local college student, the Gryphon offers the hipster and social setting perfect for writing that 10 page paper or a coffee date. The seating is very tight, however, as the business has outgrown the building. Nevertheless, I keep coming back for the service and coffee.

Terrific coffee and teas prepared by superb, talented and friendly baristas. The soup/sandwich lunch option is equally delicious. I recommend the goat cheese, roasted pepper sandwich. Enjoy.

Coffee is an art form at Gryphon - and the baristas are some masters. Think Picasso, Da Vinci, Michelangelo. Each cup is a masterpiece. Cafe is funky with seating on the ground floor and more space upstairs. Great place to catch up with friends, enjoy a coffee on your own with a good book, or for an impromptu meeting with... More

Love the quality and choices of food, coffee's good, service is very friendly. Sometimes, though, the service is a little slow when it gets really busy.
