Backwoods Bean Coffee Shop now has a new owner who has increased the square footage and added little pastries. The atmosphere is very country and internet is available, Good place to meet tourists as well as local people. My daughter enjoys the coffee shop when she is visiting. Warning, If you are lactose intolerant or allergic to caffeine, you will not find anything you can have except for a nice atmosphere...

The baked goods at the cafe are amazing- from the biscotti to the muffins. Becca, the owner, bakes all her own pastries and it is evident that she knows what she's doing!

After a recent bike trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway, we exited onto 18 South and almost literally "fell" into the magic of Backwoods Bean. We were greeted by Becca, the owner, whose hospitality, grace and creativity help explain the totally cool merging of an urban coffee shop "feel" with local, country charm. Along with Becca's warmth, we enjoyed that of Matt, her husband, as well as other locals and travelers, and the friendly ambiance and conversation were evocative of the sort often enjoyed in British pubs. Too late in the day to succumb to the temptation of the espresso machine behind the counter, we instead had tea and sweets, and carried away some of THE BEST BREAD I have EVER tasted. A few loaves had just been returned from the local farmer's market where Becca sells them, and we carried one home in our saddlebags. Going back for more as soon as we can. Grazie mille Becca, Matt, et. al..........

Having been travelling around for almost three weeks, drinking motel coffee, we found this place in Sparta where we were staying for the night. At last, a proper coffee in a proper coffee shop. Shame it is about 3500 miles from home!!

We have been going to Backwoods Bean Coffee shop for quite a few years. It is now under new ownership and much larger. The decorum is country, the coffee and teas are very good. Country art is displayed and for sale. Internet is available for the travelers in need to check for news.
