Great coffee and pastries - just what you would expect in a coffee house! They have the best mocha anywhere! Their chai latte is also quite good. They have a large selection of pastries that are tasty and compliment the drinks. The lines get long and bit tedious during busy times but it is worth the wait!

We stopped in for coffee and a treat after an evening of restaurant hopping in Downtown F-Burg. We've always heard such positive things about this coffee shop and seen all the people in it, but have never stopped... don't know why we never stopped, but wish we would have sooner - it's a great place! The espresso is done nicely,... More

I popped in for an afternoon snack and am so glad I did! Wish I'd been hungry enough for a cherry turnover--next time! I definitely recommend a visit. Great decor, plenty of seating, and friendly waitstaff. I recommend it!

Amazing value and quality here. I've been living downtown for about a year now in walking distance of this shop. Everything I've tried has been wonderful. Food I've tried here (mainly muffins and breads) is also yummy! It has great ambiance if you want to enjoy inside or out. It can sometimes get a little crowded, but it is always... More

This local coffee bar is an absolute gem. The baristas are total professionals and the coffee is so flavorful it seems to float on your palate. Whether you prefer a bold, dark roast or a more mellow profile, the skill of the coffee wizards at Hyperion creates a smooth, rich, full-bodied cup you will come back for again and again.... More

I like this place - the service is friendly and not aggressively so, the tables and layout have a homey feel to them, and the people watching is first rate. The coffee and espresso drinks are both beautiful and delicious! The lone downside is the dearth of parking spaces on weekends, mornings, after classes, etc. It's still worth a trip... More

The baristas know what they are doing and the offered pastries, sandwiches and salads are terrific. Great spot in Old Town.

If something isn't on the menu, they will work with you to concoct a drink that meets for quirks or needs. :) Always a clean, well-lighted place :) Hemingway may very well have found it the perfect place to write. I'll be back.
