4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Great consistent coffee, and very nice casual eats, love the lemon bar, and the orange and cranberry cookies!

“Best cafe in the area--craving one of their London Fogs right now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

This is an awesome business, very supportive of the local community, fabulous products; welcoming atmosphere; a model of how a good business should be run. The service is always above and beyond, and the staff are always friendly and helpful, no matter how busy they are (and it is usually busy!). I'm always impressed that they remember us and our kids when ever we come in. I can't say enough positive things about Drumroaster--and I don't even drink coffee! But their London Fogs are some of the best out there, and their baked goods are well worth the indulgence. :) Best cafe in the area, hands down.

The family and staff that provide service and extremely friendly and welcoming. They take pride in remembering your order from previous visits. Very good muffins, etc.

“Hip Cafe with Excellent Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

This place is so cute and apparently is always busy. Understandably so! I had an americano and cinnamon brioche and it hit the spot. The americano was perfectly smooth and full bodied. The brioche was delicious. Apparently they have an orange coconut brioche that goes early in the day. Gotta catch that next time. Everything else in their display looked great. Can't wait to come back!

“Great coffee & brioche!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

This is a bright, well lit coffee shop with many good sandwiches as well as baked goods and coffee. The brioche is legendary.
