We ordered Iced Coffee

What we got was luke warm coffee with melted ice. I think this place would be ok, if your coffee standards are very low. I also caught the guy behind the counter making fun of my girlfriend's long hair. The customer service was pretty pathetic and the kids that work there may need a lesson on... read more

I apologize that you did not have a good experience with us. We strive to do meet or exceed customer expectations. It appears we dropped the ball on this one. It sounds like your drink and service was not up to your or our standards. I appreciate your feedback. I will follow up on the situation. If you are ever... More

If you like one slice of deli meat between two skinny pieces of flat bread, then this is the place for you! I sure hope you're not hungry!

I can't speak for the coffee but for small plate/sandwiches this place was very good to us. Don't expect gourmet but you can count on a solid grilled cheese sandwich (ask for the cheese to be extra melted, mine was not quite there). I loved the cozy leather chair seats in the window.

This is a nice change from the big chains...although it is a part of a franchise, the owner makes it seem much more like a neighborhood cafe. There is always a good selection of hot and cold drinks, as well as pastries and savory goods. With wifi available with purchases it is a good place to relax with a drink... More

Wanted to get coffee mid-afternoon on a Sunday after a tour of the Skyline Caverns, while awaiting for the rest of our party to finish with a canoe trip and hike. We found this great little place and ordered a latte and chai latte (they even had skim milk, which I was pleased with). They had a really nice chocolate... More

Stopped in for a break for coffee and received excellent service and excellent dark roast coffee. The staff are friendly and welcoming. We will stop in again when we return to Front Royal.

Stopped at this place for an iced coffee and lunch. Loved that any of the four hot coffee options are also available iced. I had an awesome dark roast with the added bonus of available coffee cubes. Also got some pretty tasty sandwiches. Liked that three different vegetarian options available.

Cutest coffee house I have ever seen. The java is fresh, the vibe mello, and a lovely staff. It just feels good walking in the door. I truly believe that the vanilla bean coffee was the best coffee I have experienced. WiFi friendly with an outdoor option, my goto place when visiting Front Royal!

Great little coffee cafe on the Main Street of the historic district of town. The street retains the old timey small town feel; a great setting for this establishment. Great coffee, good cafe menu with daily specials, hand dipped ice cream, pleasant relaxing atmosphere. During events such as the annual wine festival on Main street they are packed; otherwise nice...
