Love the coffee and when its not too hot, great to sit outside - although there is usually room inside. But be prepared for long lines since it is popular. I like it and their pastries.

I love this coffee cafe. We have been going there for over 8 years and the staff (although they have changed) has always been great. The atmosphere is wonderful.

We used to live in Fredericksburg and Hyperion was one of our favorite coffee shops. Love their Guatemala whole bean coffee and we usually pick up 1-2 pounds to bring home when we visit. The staff seems to change but the service has been consistently good.

They usually have featured drinks of the month which give you an alternative from the same old starbucks offerings. Their peanut butter syrup is awesome. We used to hang out here, grab a coffee and talk with friends. Now we pick up to go and sip while we walk downtown. Either way it's a good stop on williams st. If... More

A good cup of coffee with a great variety of pastries. Apple pastry was great, all though the scone was a little dry. We stopped in the afternoon to sit and rest after walking and shopping around the town. It was busy but still a good place to sit and cool off indoors. There were many, many clients taking advantage... More

Very good coffee shop that serves everything one might want in coffee, but if you are an early riser and want a jave pre-seven AM... you are out of luck. Again, great coffee but opening time is a mystery!

Very friendly people, great coffe and proves, and a very good selection. This place sits on the corner in downtown Frederick and was a perfect place to go after a stroll and dinner. Outdoor seating was nice too!

I have this debate with my friends but I can't sit inside due to the smell. Am I the only person that smells the kerosene. It gives me a headache if I'm in there for too long. It's so strong and no ones seems to mention it. Maybe my smell senses is a bit more stronger than others but they... More

I fell in love with fabulous coffee in the '70's when living in Italy. It was decades before there was anywhere in the U.S. to have anything close to that delicious beverage. I have roasted my own beans, have chased promises from baristas in Seattle, Chicago, and New York. NONE can touch the PERFECT coffee I had while visiting Fredericksburg!... More

Cute place in Old Town Fredericksburg, MD. I wish there would have been more variety as far as the food choices went, but considering it was a late Saturday afternoon visit, I understand. Anyhow, we were truly there for a caffeine fix. We all got something different and each one of us thoroughly enjoyed what we got. I'll have to... More
