“Good coffee but stay away from the food!”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We stopped here before visiting Chimney Rock State Park. The coffee was delicious but it seemed like we were bothering the guy owner by being there. He kept mentioning that he wanted to set things up for a garage sale...Anyways, we ordered coffee, a latte, and sausage egg sandwiches. The coffee and latte were good. The breakfast sandwiches were definitely frozen Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches that were not even fully warmed up. Both mine and my husbands was still very cold in the middle. We sat down for about 10 minutes and then left so the owner could do whatever he needed to do for his garage sale. There's not much else in the area so if we are back here, being caffeine addicts, we will come back...but only for the coffee.

“cozy coffee shop”
Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

A great spot to grab a coffee and sit a spell. The antiques that decorated the place made it feel very inviting. We ordered a pastry which did the trick for us in complementing the coffee and tiding us over - it wasn't anything special and appeared to be from the local grocer. The coffee was good and the menu had lots of options. We had good service and enjoyed warming up a bit because at this little cozy little coffee shop.
