Once you enter and smell the coffee you are intoxicated and you have entered coffee heaven!!! No better place for coffee, and lots of choices!!! Great sweets also! Sit outside or inside. Must visit!

OK, I'll admit it, our primary reason for stopping here was to use the facilities. But we also grabbed a coffe and sat for a while. It was a Sunday morning and they had live music in the back "upper" room and a decent crowd. Service was quick and friendly and the coffee was fine. Looks like a nice place... More

Stopped in here one afternoon for a frozen white mocha to try and beat the heat. The staff was friendly and they made my coffee in record time. It didn't taste all that great, and the atmosphere wasn't anything to rave about. I tried to use the free wi-fi but it was really slow. I think this is nice coffee... More

Forget the chain coffee joints. Hyperion sits on a busy street corner in Downtown Fredericksburg with outdoor seating perfect for people watching. Bring cash - no credit cards accepted

Don't be mistaken by people going here due to lack of healthy competition. The coffee has gone steadily downhill for years, the owner is horrible on a good day, and the nice employees don't tend to last long. What they have going for them? Location and history. There are 2 MUCH better options nearby.

We stopped in for a quick coffee during a whistle stop tour of Fredericksburg and were very glad we did so. A relaxed atmosphere and some outside seating. Very good selection of coffees and teas that were delicious. Well worth a visit.

After spending the hot morning walking everywhere on our sightseeing tour of Fredericksburg, we spied this cute little coffee shop and stopped in for a refreshment. We all opted for iced beverages. All were prepared quickly and friendly and we enjoyed our visit.

I have visited Hyperion many times, and it has a relaxing atmosphere in downtown Fredericksburg, where you can stop and get any type of coffee--so much better than any Starbucks as the staff is really knowledgeable about all aspects of coffee. Plenty of places to sit too.

Our friends took us her as their local coffee shop of choice. You can smell the fresh ground coffee as you approach and it makes you want to go in. The choices are great and they really care about how they prep the coffee. Tea is available too and even fresh cold milk to go with it if that's what... More

Good for a cup of coffee, a muffin and WIFI. The cinnamon muffin was terrific! WIFI is an easy hook-up.
