There is a wonderful selection of drinks available. They also have fresh sandwiches and desserts too. Nice to just enjoy coffee and dessert along with a local paper here.

We were in Front Royal to begin trip on the Skyline Parkway. Was sightseeing and came upon this neat coffee shop. I ordered Chia Tea latte and apple crumb scone. Food and drink divine.

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 coffee service.

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
