“Sit in the shade and enjoy the view”
Reviewed August 12, 2014

Walking around downtown Ashland is what you do - shopping, window gazing, looking up at the hills, gawking at the buskers, thinking about the plays you'll see in the next week - it's a wonderful place to live and to vacation. The Water Street Café is certainly part of the whole experience. It's an unusual, outdoor café, nicely shaded and beautifully positioned to enjoy downtown. Order an iced whatever, take a seat and relax.

“Great outdoor cafe in downtown Ashland”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Friendly, affordable outdoor cafe. Stopped by for lunch and had the cafe cup -- satisfying and felt very healthy! Nice environment and a good place to people watch. They are pet-friendly and serve beer and wine, too. Great place.

“I LOVE THIS CAFE”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

I go out of my way to pass through Ashland when I'm traveling up 1-5 for the Cafe Cup and the Fish Tacos. It has the best ambiance, Ashland locals, beautiful flowers, tasteful music and COLD BEER ON TAP! Don't miss this local gem.

“My favorite place to eat in Ashland!”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

A trip to Ashland isn't complete without a trip to Water St! The food is good "bang for the buck". The atmosphere is relaxed. It sits right on the plaza. I recommend the Cafe Cup or Cafe Burrito. Of course, the smoothies and fish tacos are also great!
