“Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We where in Luray for the first time and having a chilly walk around downtown when we happened upon this oasis. We went in and were greated warmly with a smile, quickly given a table, and then quickly attended to by Chris. He was very friendly and informative. We split a slice of Chocolate Chess pie and had coffee and tea. Very good all around.

“Luray Version of Starbucks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

If you're a Starbuck fanatic and worried you won't find your fix in Luray then you're in luck. Gathering Grounds is very much a Starbucks away from Starbucks. Similar coffee and food items available. We stopped in for breakfast and it was delicious. Croissant sandwiches were very tasty. Staff is very friendly and keep your coffee fresh and hot. Nice place to stop and relax too if you're shopping around town.

“Recommended!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

This small restaurant has a coffee-shop like atmosphere. The food was well priced and much much better than what we expected from a small place in a small town. Would definitely recommend a stop in during your Shenandoah travels!!!

We enjoyed everything about it from the delicious food, to the kind people, and the eclectic decor. We went back there almost everyday of our vacation.

“Quiet coffee house atmosphere with amazing food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

Highly recommend the Versailles panini. My hubby had that while I had the Mersailles ok pretzel bread which was Delish as well. This is a coffee house quaint sandwich place with beer and specialty. Not fancy dinner but definitely Delish dinner! Thank you!
