Great coffee and atmosphere

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.

I have tried them all and this is the one I like the best not only for the coffee but also for the ambiance and the friendly service.

This place has great soups, sandwiches, drinks, and desserts. If you are looking for a laid back atmosphere, this place should be a great break for lunch or a drink anytime.

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.

My friends live in the area so they know all the baristas, but I believe they would have been friendly even if we hasn't stopped in with a local. Awesome muffins, flavorful coffee, charming place.
