Rock City Cafe has that, at home--'everyone knows your name'---welcome to our place atmosphere. Their rustic fare and selection of specialty coffees and iced beverages bring, US REGULARS, back for delectable bites and robust gulps.

Rock City roasts its own beans, bakes its own desserts, and entertains its customers on weekend evenings with local musicians. You will receive a smile , an enjoy, and a stay-for-a-while demeanor from staff. So, enjoy. Bottoms up!

This is a cool spot for the more, shall we say, bohemian crowd, where your average upscale couple without fine tuning filters and a raucous sense of humor will not feel at home.
If you want to sign on, order a chai tea, and have a good pastry, this is a great stop. It's also a better than average place to meet singles. Above average intellect among the patrons, who tend to be liberals, organic locavore types, and bookish introverts.

We were visiting from out of town and searching for a good cup of coffee. The staff at the Inn where we were staying recommended Rock City Cafe. The coffee is excellent! They feature different roasts daily and plenty of sweet treats. We returned daily throughout our visit and were very pleased with the quality each time.

Food is limited, but hey, it's a coffee shop! Coffee is terrific, so are the other drinks offered. Go, sit, sip, watch the world slip by.

Rock City Cafe is located in downtown Rockland on the left shortly after you take the left heading north on Coastal Route 1. It's larger than a typical coffee shop, with large open windows facing the street and a large selection of coffee, pastries, and breakfast sandwiches. Rock City Cafe has a bit of a trendy feel, yet it's homie enough to not make a regular guy like me feel uncomfortable. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. It's clean and open inside and the service is very good.
