This is my go-to coffee stop when traveling along U.S. 11. Neat, cozy storefront with comfortable decor. Good coffee, breakfast sandwiches...and one of these days I'm going to try a slice of that chocolate cake. Walking distance around the corner from the Stonewall Jackson Hotel makes it a convenient morning cup of Joe!

We enjoyed coffee, beer and snacks here twice during our recent Staunton visit. The coffee was good and came in real ceramic cups (!). The snacks we enjoyed were average-- the bagels were supermarket type, not real ones. The staff were efficient though not overtly friendly. All arrived promptly. The facility was clean.

Grab an excellent sandwich before the theater at the American Shakespeare Center around the corner, enjoy the warm atmosphere, soak in the charm of Staunton. Note the name changes to the "By and BY" from "Coffee on the Corner."

The place was perfect for Sunday brunch. We enjoyed food/coffee and ambience, especially since they had live music (a couple played guitars).

Coffee on the Corner, now called The By & By... is a great place for everything from regular coffee to gourmet espresso drinks, pastries and lunch items. Their breakfast croissants are scrumptious. The food is always delicious and the outdoor beer garden is a great place to hang out in the evenings. They offer movies outdoors in the beer garden... More

This is now called "By and By" and includes a Beer Garden in the backyard. It is right down the street from the American Shakespeare Center. The coffee is good, the hot cocoa is popular, and the Italian sodas are good. I was not thrilled by the cleanliness of the bathroom or the friendliness of the staff on a Saturday... More

Cute little beer garden, friendly staff, good selection of beers and wines. Don't miss the Sci-fi film night - a surreal and fun experience (wear bug spray in summer!)

I was in town for a wedding and needed a place to work for the better part of Saturday (unfortunately). By and By (new name changed from Coffee on the Corner) was the perfect place - welcoming staff, great coffee, delicious lunch, and free wifi. I stayed the entire day - ordered just coffee for breakfast (I'm not really a... More

On the corner nearest to Blackfriar's is a nice coffee shop. For years I have gotten coffee and sandwiches before going to see a Shakespearean play. Today I just had a large latte before MacBeth. Sat outside on the sidewalk. Very pleasant, indeed.
