Good coffee! Great Pastries!

Good coffee and fresh pastries at a reasonable price. Open for breakfast (early). Casual seating and very laid back. (Can't wait to try the movies in the outdoor Beer Garden - is said Marx Brothers Films!)

Relaxing atmosphere, good light fare characterize By and By. It's good for all times of day. My favorite part is the beer garden in back. They took an eyesore and turned it into a beautiful space. Good beer menu too!

Great coffee and friendly service with a cute outdoor beer garden, umbrella tables. It's next door to the Shakespeare Theatre.

Quaint small internet-cafe spot at the edge of downtown Staunton with limited menu prepared well Had the Italian panini and it was very good. Those with an interest in various coffees will enjoy their extensive coffee choices Nice small courtyard billed as a beer garden right next to Blackfriars A lot of variety in beer choices, including many you don't...

Really yummy food. Different twist on classic-- had sea foam Green tea, lavender iced tea, ham and cheddar cheese, grilled blue cheese sandwich with apple, onion, and some bacon. We are in the "beer garden" which was a lovely walled off patio with flowers and cafe tables and umbrellas.

Yep...it's a coffee shop with good coffee. The beer garden is a bit of a joke. Probably since it's right downtown near the ASC and Mary Baldwin, the prices are somewhat high. Seems to have a following of people who hang there.

Great place that has coffee and pastries in the morning and sandwiches and beer in the afternoon. The outdoor patio is relaxing. Nice staff.

I think we arrived during a shift change because there was only one employee who kept disappearing (probably to help customers in the garden area). The coffee was good, not exceptional, but good. The flavor syrups are Torani (a brand I prefer). The barista did make my drink the wrong flavor, but was ready to remake it as soon as... More

this restaurant was formerly known as Coffee on the Corner, but they serve more than coffee! Their coffee is delicious, and you can order local baked goods to accompany it. Sandwiches are delicious and they have a great outdoor garden for eating them! It's one of the restoration marvels of Staunton.

Wonderful coffee shop on one of the main streets in town. We worked our way down Beverley Street in several shops and ended the sojourn here. My mother had a hot tea and I had a cortado, both drinks about $7. Seating was ample with tables and at least one sofa available. There is a beer garden, however, we did... More
