“Relax and Unwind.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Binding Times is the "perfect little spot" for relaxing - with the best cup of coffee around to have with a great scone, or a delicious sandwich, or a really good dish of ice cream - and I do mean "really good". I live in Florida so obviously I'm not a "regular", but if I lived in M-Ville, I certainly would be! In addition to the excellent food choices, and relaxed and friendly feeling of the shop, I can browse through unusual and interesting books, or find unique greeting cards that seem to be perfect for what I need. I can't wait for my next trip to Martinsville - which will certainly include lunch or maybe an ice cream break - at Binding Times. I almost forgot - the freshly home-made soups are delicious and a real treat - especially on a chilly day (obviously not on my most recent visit when the temperature was in the 90's, but will be a definite choice when I visit in the Fall). For such a small shop, there are many choices of delicious things to eat and drink, in addition to some interesting browsing while waiting for the food to be prepared to order - and as the owner said - "always with a smile". No wonder this place is a "favorite" with family members who do live in Martinsville (and are "regulars"). It's easy to see why they like going there so much.

“The perfect small town coffee shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

Binding Time is a unique and wonderful shop. You can get coffee (well duh), pastries (the scones are first rate!), sandwiches, ice cream, even treats for your doggie friends. They offer a selection of new and used books, along with titles of local interest. Their staff is always friendly, and loves a good conversation. In the summer, there have been some music and wine tastings held in their parking lot. This place ROCKS!

“Hey, I'm an owner. Whaddya expect?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

We've been serving Martinsville's needs for 8 years of continuous ownership. We know what people here like, and if the locals love us, visitors will be in for a treat. You'll never find a staff more dedicated to helping you make your lunch or coffee decision, and always with a smile. This is a place you'll always feel welcomed and respected.

“What a pleasant surprise!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

You never know what you'll find when you walk into a Mom & Pop shop. Binding Time makes the risk worthwhile. Terrific wrap and a smoothie that couldn't have been tastier. The ice cream made the visit complete. They know what they're doing at Binding Time, and treated me like a queen.

Great coffee bar with staff who knew about coffee. Chicken salad and potato salad were homemade and delicious.
