We stayed in Waynesboro overnight. Stopped by here after dinner. We got a mocha and a chai latte. Both were very good. The shop is very attractive and cozy. We would be regulars here if we lived here.

This off the beaten path small restaurant provided a wonderful sandwich and coffee. The service was outstanding in an intimate environment. Would return again if in the area. Try it, you'll not be disappointed.

French Press is a great little cafe. The staff is friendly and puts some care into their barista activities. Justin can create some coffee artwork with his pours. Friday night includes an open mike which is always interesting.

Offers specialty coffees and chai. Nice seating arrangement. We visited during the daytime and we had the whole lounge area for ourselves. The coffee drinks were excellent.

Outstanding coffee Shoppe. Beautifully decorated, wonderful service, yummy pastries and convenient to downtown Waynesboro. A great place to go get your morning boost before work if working in downtown. Easy parking too. Jam sessions on Friday evenings. Oh yeah, the coffees are delicious!
