Cute spot, great coffee

Stopped in the morning of the half marathon. It was busy but the staff was cheerful and everything well stocked. They had some gluten free selections which was appreciated. Great people watching from the picture windows and outdoor seating.

We just happened upon this coffee shop while touring downtown. The coffee was excellent. The atmosphere was great. A historic building that was welcoming and frequented by locals of all ages.

This is an ideally located oasis as you explore the downtown area. Ample seating inside and out. They have a great selection of coffees, espresso, lattes, teas & cocoas. I highly recommend the frozen Chai omg! So good :). Their Chai hot, iced, or frozen is the best in the area. Their array of baked goods is yummy, oversized scones... More

If you are a coffee lover, this is a must when visiting Historic Fredericksburg! Fresh brews, locally made eats with a very delicious, healthy flair all set in historic charming buildings with friendly, efficient service. There is usually a line (due to crowds) but it's worth the wait!

On my way home this morning after visiting family nearby, I took a detour through through the downtown area to visit this coffee shop based on other Trip Advisor reviews. It was a pleasant experience and I enjoyed my toffee nut soy latte.

My favourite spot of drinking coffee downtown fredericksburg, but wait, you have to buy cigar from near by downtown tobacconest and then head to hyperion. Its located in a corner on a semi hill that you can see the rappshanock river from tbe outdoor benches. If you are pasding through fredericksburg, this cafe really worths the visit.

I used to live in Fredericksburg when I was younger and I remember that Hyperion was always a special treat reserved for when I was on my best behavior. The atmosphere is cozy and reminds you of a classic coffee house, the menu is extensive, the pastries are delicious, and the coffee and chai is excellent. My personal favorite was... More

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!
