Sadly, they retired and moved to the outer banks :( They were so convenient too - just a block away from my condo!

Sadly today's economy has doused another star in our world ! What was a shiny place for all to to gather and enjoy the very simple pleasures of good coffee, good conversation , and stellar service has closed. It's the end of the world as we know it ! Best of luck Dave & Betsy !

Wonderful Seattle's Best coffee made by a truly nice person. Lots of other goodies from muffins to ice cream. Good place to sit when the weather is nice and watch the ships pass by.

Seeing Starboards Coffee Kiosk from the bow of The Elizabeth River Ferry as you approach High Street Landing in Old Towne Portsmouth VA, lets you know you are minutes away from a great hot cup of seasonal Pumpkin Pie coffee! Grab a chair and strike up a conversation with another patron. Or just sit and relax and take in the... More

Great, Coffee, Tea and snacks... Eventually, everybody lands @ Starboards is true. Located at mile Marker 1 on the inner coastal water way.. a great place to stop share a beverage and talk with the locals. So much history on one corner to share. Both Betsy and David are the unofficial Ambassadors of Portsmouth. They always make you feel welcome... More

Being an avid caffeine junkie, I was thrilled to find Starboards right outside my apartment complex after moving in two short months ago. Not only do they serve up my daily caffeine fix, but they also get me going in the morning with their scrumptious chive Bagel Nuts - cream cheese-filled bagel bites that will knock your socks off!

Their coffee is amazing. Frozen coffee ice cubes for your iced coffees... solving problems I didn't know existed. The owners are a treat and the service is fabulous.

Betsy and Dave are great people, with great energy and zest for life. So it's only fitting that they serve the best coffee at the most charming outdoor location you can find in Portsmouth, VA. Coffee often serves as the centerpiece around which family and friends meet to talk, laugh and spend time together. Serving their special brand of "perfected... More

A wonderful spot to get a cup of coffee and keep an eye on what's coming up the river. Betsy and Dave always know what is going in and give locals and travelers alike tips on what to see! The only drawback- it can be addicting!
