Really is Fredericksburg's BEST! Offers a totally global experience featuring coffees from every coffee growing region!

Our Trolley driver had pointed this little coffee shop out to us when we passed by saying it was the best coffee in Fredericksburg! Well, a lot of places can say they’re the best, but are they really? So we decided to try it out for ourselves! It’s a fantastic environment when you walk in... read more

I always have a pleasant experience here. Nice comfy atmosphere to relax and read the news while sipping my coffee. Sometime the long line is annoying, but that happens anywhere there is good coffee.

I walked into this place and was immediately transported back 50 years to my college days making the rounds of Cincinnati's Mt. Adams coffee houses, the closest thing we had to Haight-Ashbury in Cincy. Downtown Fredericksburg is probably one of the finest small town shopping areas in the East and my wife wanted to finish off her Christmas acquisitions so... More

Little corner bistro, always hopping with shoppers and locals. Great coffee offerings, pastries, sandwiches from foodies and other local goodies. Clean, pleasant and dog friendly outdoor space.

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.
