This place is your kind of college independent coffee house feeling which is a good thing to keep away from main coffee chains it has a welcome feeling with friendly staff and good coffee what more can you ask for.

There is a reason this place is still making it even after fivebucks opened across the street. It's friendly, cozy, has character and superior coffee. If your habit is to hit up fivebucks bc that's what you're used to, I urge you to give this place a try. They also have a great selection of bagged coffee for home as... More

Fun place to have a cup of tea or coffee. Great selection... They even have mate! Eclectic decor with local art and cool vibe. Nice array of vegetarian and vegan offerings as well as traditional coffeehouse snacks. Very Ghent!

We stopped by for a mid morning treat. We had coffee and Cappuccino. This is a unique and interesting location. Part of what makes NORFOLK great.

Great drinks- both hot and cold. Good food. Only wish is that they had more seating! Other than that, love this place! Good for a quick stop, to sit down, or if you have a meeting and need someplace quiet.

love to stop in this second floor coffee shop and get a drink. The people watching is great. Totally different feel, depending on what time of day you go in. Coffee and food is always good! Interesting assortment of games and reading material, too!

I love coffeehouses, so no matter where we travel, I try to check out at least one. We were fortunate enough to find Elliot's Fair Grounds. It was crowded, (Sunday, mid-afternoon) but we were able to find seats on the porch. Good music, good coffee, good, large desserts. Reasonable prices. Very comfortable surroundings. Fair Grounds boasts an overabundance of comfortable... More

Fair Grounds is a great little coffee shop to spend the afternoon in. They have a pretty good selection or drinks (and just enough ones without coffee to keep me happy, since I'm not a coffee guy) and some food that sounds pretty good if you need a bite to eat. I ordered two small pots of tea (about a... More
