Really cool spot with nice ambiance and good coffee. Made for a great environment for conversation. It was both our first time there and we really enjoyed.

Although a neat place to visit and situated perfectly in Fredericksburg, the latte was overly milky with no taste of coffee. Staff was kind and the place was clean with ample seating and great atmosphere potential (both in hte main cafe and the side sitting room). Just wish we could've tasted the coffee!

Situated right in the heart of Old Town, I'd say it is "Fredericksburg's Coffee Shop". A charming, artsy, hometown feel, with indoor and outdoor seating. And their coffee - delicious! My favorites are their cappuccino, and their "Monkey". Be ready to wait in line and chat with the person next to you. Oh, and please have one of the delicious... More

Had a great cup of coffee and a fantastic apple turnover. It always feels like a vacation when I go there...it feels like San Francisco a couple decades ago. I always make it a point to go to the Hyperion whenever I am in Fredericksburg

Have been going to Hyperion Espresso since they opened their doors. Have also tried all the other coffee cafés in town. While each brings something, Hyperion Espresso is unique in it's ability to remain consistent in its quality of espresso. Additionally, there is plenty of inside and outside room to sit, and free Wi-Fi.

Our neice insisted on having us stop at the Hyperion Espresso while showing us the sites in Fredericksburg. Neither my husband, nor I, are huge coffee shop people, but I am so glad she did. We started our visit downtown by ordering two hot cocoas and two hot apple cidars, one caramel, the other cinnamon. It was delicious and hit... More

Stopped by after a recent restaurant visit and had a nice cappuccino. Plenty of space to chill while drinking your coffee inside or out.

Long lines for bitter coffee and average pastry selection (think bakery section at Costco.) The staff member put the lid on my drink and smudged her hand along the opening where you drink. Gross! Removed it right away! Bees outside. Great location for people watching but dumpy and in need of an update.
