Neat place

It was our first visit as we are here for Thanksgiving. The menus are easy to read. The place was laid out well and has a the normal coffee house feel. Or Oder was quickly and accurately prepaid. The taste was pleasing to the pallet.

We were walking around the town and decided to stop in for a hot drink. We ordered 2 Hot Chocolates, a Cafe Mocha, and a Vanilla Latte. The servers were very nice and offered to make the Hot Chocolates kid-temperature. (My two kids had ordered them.) There was no line whatsoever, but I don't know why, because it was great!... More

I think I've visited Hyperion about a hundred times in the past 15 years and my favorite drink is the mocha. It's bursting with a cocoa flavor unlike what you normally experience with this drink in most coffee shops. I like the coffee, too, and have had a few dozen cups of it over the years. I would give it... More

This small locally owned shop is a favorite of students from Mary Washington University and town folks alike. There is a steady stream of patrons all day long. The coffe is very good, food offerings are limited to muffins, bagels and so on. Try a breve. Staff are friendly and knowledable. Prices are a little high but no worse than... More

This was without doubt my favorite place! The people were awesome even though incredibly busy! My latte had BEAUTIFUL art ( if you're a coffee addict like me you know what I'm talking about!) despite the crush of people. That's SERVICE! Served in a giant cup in a warm cutesy place....I had arrived! The next day more lattes and a... More

This little corner coffed place is truly fourth rate. The location is great, but it has such limited offerings as to be virtually useless.

If you are downtown Fredericksburg and have a need for a nice Cafe... You must experience this place. The coffees are good the service is quick and there is a lot of place to sit and enjoy.

If you set a GPS to simply "Fredericksburg, VA", you'll end up parked directly in front of this wonderful independent coffee shop. We were only passing through town, but couldn't resist a quick stop here.Coffee selection and preparation is first rate, decor is quirky but comfortable and the staff is super friendly. I'd be a regular if I lived here.

We stopped in for a burst of energy while walking around historic Fredericksburg. The coffee is fresh and very good. Munchies included a scone and muffin, both of which were excellent. There was a good selection of food items and regular coffees in addition to all the coffee drink selections. There are plenty of indoor tables and several outdoor tables... More
