I tried this coffee shop in a cold day and the place was packed! I had a London Fog and it was great and paired amazingly well with the Hummingbird Pecan bread, which tasted like banana bread with pecans to me. The icing was very...buttery and good. My friend had a Dirty Chai and it was really subpar (I tried it). It wasn’t even hot when he got it and went cold after a couple of minutes of walking around with it outside.More

My daughter was playing tennis at a nearby club and had 3 hours between matches. We visited Agora and what a pleasant surprise it was. The place fella like home (well it is a home actually). Everything had a nice touch. The menu of coffees...and other delights is well thought of. Cappuccinos and macchiatos are great. We also had bagels (that you toast to your desire) and chocolate mint cake. The owners are always on hand and making sure everything is running smoothly. We loved the place. You should make it a point to visit it if you are passing by the area. Next time I have to try the oatmeal jars (they look amazing).More

Found this coffee shop online while driving through Fredericksburg. Loved the fact that it has books & cozy spaces where you can just drink your coffee, read & relax. Had great coffee with yummy homemade desserts and the staff was very friendly. I even bought...a t-shirt to remember my visit to this adorable gem!More

Sour coffee! Not sure if it's a coarse grind or weak tamping, but the brew was hard to stomach. If it wasn't for that, this would be a 5 star review because the environment and staff are fantastic. Very cozy and inviting spot in historic...Fredericksburg.More

Wanting to get some bakery items for a visit with friends, I looked at the website. I knew as soon as I met the team, from their bios, that this was the place to stop. The employees were so nice and very knowledgeable about all...the products. This provided a great way to make an informed decision. YUM!More

After reading glowing reviews on social media we stopped in on a busy holiday (July 4th) to give this place a try... They were moderately busy, yet we were assisted pretty quickly and the lady working behind the counter was friendly and very hepfull with...the menu. Their menu is rather unique with some interesting coffee drinks being offered. They also make all the food items they have in the case, including the most AMAZING blueberry muffins I’ve ever had! Their muffins were warm (probably because they were freshly made), very moist, sweet and extremely tasty! After buying one, I ended up buying two more to take home! The coffee drinks we enjoyed (one hot and one cold) were very unique and quite tasty too. Their coffee/espresso was very nice too. The venue is interesting and quaint. It’s an older store turned into a café. We’ll definitely be back!!More

Agora has become our go-to place whenever we are in Fredericksburg. They offer a large unique menu of coffee and tea drinks, including ones with liquor. Family members have their favorite drinks, but we also love trying something different. A must go to place if...you are visiting downtown. This coffee shop also offers light eats, plus contains a small used bookstore. Very popular with the locals.More

Popped in for a mid-afternoon respite to enjoy the drink and sweet (cookie or muffin). Since I don’t drink coffee, I greatly appreciate coffee shops that have interesting choices. Agora doesn’t disappoint, with teas and chais and cocoa specials. Sadly, can’t recall the name of...the cocoa concoction I selected, but it doesn’t appear on the website menu. It tasted delicious! The snickerdoodle was also amazing. So cool to see the baker at work as you make your way back to the seating area!More
