Heard this served the best coffee in Wayne from my Aussie friends. They are pretty discerning coffee drinkers so seized the opportunity to check it out for myself. Liked the atmosphere and the coffee was enjoyable- flavor able without being overly bitter

First time here, will definitely be back. Fantastic baked goods, sandwiches, etc. Good coffee. Lots of options. Fast wifi. Lots of seating. Cute with an artsy vibe.

We live in Wayne and eat lunch there - great sandwiches. I want to write about nights at the cafe. There is not much night life in our town for young people. My son has been going there for drinks (non alcoholic) on a Saturday night for four years. The owner expects decorum; if you act in accordance with the... More

The Gryphon cafe in Wayne has been a steadfast favorite for some years now. The customer base may have changed over the years, but the Gryphon has continued to offer excellent coffees, teas and specialty drinks, as well as a variety of edibles for breakfast, lunch and in-between. Gone are the days of sitting down for a leisurely coffee and... More

Great, and busy, little coffee shop. You can enjoy free internet while having breakfast, lunch or dinner. The sandwiches and soups are always good and made as you wait. The only problem might be finding a table.

The best drinks and simple eats you can imagine. Try the carrot bisque. Fresh goodies so when they are gone that's it for the day. Ample size cups and the atmosphere is old world coffee shop with local art, music and even a business card board. Bring cash no cards

Gryphon roasts their own beans and the cappuccinos are delicious. This boho coffee hangout is very unique and popular so getting a table may be tough. Love the polish pottery too.

We usually stop here for coffee - known for its eclectic atmosphere and variety of customers. Today we decided to grab a light lunch of soup /salad and a humus plate. It was busy but we did get a table for two. Usually be forewarned that coffee goers and computer users take up much of the table space. There is... More

What a neighborhood gem! The coffees are great, as are the soups and sandwiches. This is the place to sit and visit, work on your computer or just chill. There are not a lot of tables, so you might have to wait, but you won't be sorry you waited. Don't come when you are in a hurry, as each sandwich... More

Baristas that know their coffee. Chocolate is ground in-house. They make a really nice mocha or hot chocolate, Always a good ambience for meeting with friends, studying, catching up on some work. My favorite sandwich is with proscuito, arugula and camembert. Healthy food options.
