Great Scones and Ice Tea

I had the chocolate chip scone and tasted like it was just baked. Fabulous!!! I will go back here again when I go back to Portsmouth.

Drinks: I ordered a breakfast shake, it was very good. Food: Panini, tasted great. Didn't skip quality. Atmosphere: Indoor was typical coffee shop, outside was nicer the day we went. Great place for a relaxing coffee

Great coffee. Quick service. We got a chai and bagels on our way to work for breakfast. I also got a veggie wrap and it was better than some back at home in Oregon.

Came here for lunch and it was pretty good! I had the king James hot dog and the pricing didn't match the quality. It was 5 dollars I think. Good place to come and have coffee, lunch, and dessert!

Right next to the Virginia SPorts Hall of Fame and across from the Children's Museum is this great coffee shop. It also sells breakfast and lunch entrees which are simple but quite good. The locals gather in the morning to discuss politics and city happenings. Check it out--it's an original.

Went there for lunch, it is a small shop that serves coffees and other sorts of drinks and pastries and lunch. Food is reasonably priced. Veggie wrap is excellent, served with chips and a pickle. They have other wraps, flat breads, pizzas, hot dogs, ect. Nothing overly fancy, but a nice spot for lunch!

We stopped in one morning for coffee. They had several house specialty drinks, which I tried a Fireside Mocha. It was very good yet different from your normal vanilla latte. The food was also delicious, the sugar cinnamon donut was AMAZING!! My husband got a breakfast wrap which was also incredible. Wish we would have found this place on our... More

Great little quaint place where humans cook your eggs. The kind of place I search for when on travel. Friendly staff, near hotels. Limited breakfast menu, great coffee and they can do some of the Foo Foo coffee without smirking.

awesome small coffee shop with breakfast treats and lite snacks. Great atmosphere inside and tables on the sidewalk as well. Can get busy but great coffee, tea selections. Easy walk from the Renaissance Hotel.

Stopped in for coffee and a breakfast sandwich. The food was average, would not go back as it wasn't anything special. Slow service with not enough help.
