Nice Coffee Shop

Looking for an espresso between dinner and a play, this shop was in the right place and open until 8 pm. Very casual and very comfortable, a great coffeehouse in downtown.

Second time at this restaurant. Great pastrami and even better coffee. Friendly staff. Don't be surprised if most seats taken during lunch hour as several persons doing computer stuff and coffee.

I ordered a medium mocha and was charged for a large and the coffee here is expensive. They gave me a refund for the amount that I was over charged after I mentioned it. When I took the lid off I saw that the cup was only half filled. There was so much chocolate syrup in it that made it... More

Coffee and beer?! the two best items for studying/getting work done. Great little spot out back to study or sit during warm weather. And plenty of little spots to sit inside too.

This small restaurant is less than a block from the American Shakespeare Center, making it a good option for those looking for a meal before attending a play. The menu is somewhat limited and all items are listed on a blackboard near the cash register. We each selected the smoked turkey and cheese sandwich, which was served with locally homemade... More

Got to the theater before the doors opened and spent a delightful half hour in the coffee shop. There were several other folks that had arrived early for the play. The shop had quite a selection of snacks and plenty of coffee choices. The also offered free WiFi.

By & By (formerly Coffee on the Corner) is a local coffee shop with great coffee and an expanded list of pastries and sandwiches. And when weather is suitable, they have an outside beer garden with a surprisingly large list of local, foreign & domestic beers to choose from. The location near the Blackfriars theater and Mary Baldwin University make... More

I was told about this coffee shop and found it to be friendly with, good music, great coffee drinks, and yummy banana bread. It was the perfect place to rest a bit while walking among the many interesting shops in Staunton!

This bar and wine spot is located conveniently near the Stonewall Jackson hotel. It's a great spot to enjoy great coffee or a nice glass of wine before or after the theater next door.. P.s. Also got early morning coffee there each day of our stay.

Enjoyed an iced latte today in the beer garden while visiting with a friend. It was lovely. A nice choice of sun or shade. Can't wait to go back and try their food. The employees were super nice and even brought my drink out to me rather than making me wait at the counter while they fixed it.
