Good service freshly brewed java and soy products. The trail mix cookies is on point. Aldo free wifi and firefly staff. It is great place to have light lunch or late breakfast.

Good atmosphere and coffee. Not the greatest selections for lunch. It's convenient after a trip to the Children's Museum.

If there is anywhere you can find me along with good friends is The Coffee Shoppe in Olde Towne Portsmouth. Great Selection and Atmosphere. Boaters must also seek them out when you dock at the waterfront.

I was greeted with such delight by the man and woman behind the counter, the service was fantastic and so was the Latte, chia tea but mostly my daughter loved their Breakfast sandwich. A must for anyone looking for a breakfast spot better than the commercial coffee shops

We enjoyed breakfast today at The Coffee Shoppe. The staff was friendly, helpful, efficient, and willing to accommodate my needs. The interior has artwork by local artists and has a relaxed feel to the place. My breakfast burrito, sans eggs was delicious and my mocha was what I needed it to be, caffeinated, chocolaty, and not too sweet. If they... More

Stopped in for a smoothie. They let you combine flavors. Conveniently located in downtown Portsmouth.

The Coffee Shoppe was noted at the "Best of the Best". I wasn't impressed. While visiting Portsmouth, VA over the weekend, we stopped in this little coffee shop. I went to the ladies room and my husband ordered me an espresso. We waited quite a while for what turned out to be just over a tablespoon of liquid. I get... More

Enjoyed Sunday morning coffee and breakfast burrito here. The place is small with limited seating but we were lucky enough to get a table. Being from the Southwest, the breakfast burrito was different from what we expected; it was more like a pannini. However, it was very good and we enjoyed it.

It reminds me of the wee cafe i worked in ,in Brechin Scotland. Old fashioned feel to it, but nice and clean, and with friendly staff. Certainly not the cheapest place to eat.(I went in for a takeout coffee one time and saw a pastry creation that just cried out for me to buy it lol) but whoo, it was... More
