Description: All of our drinks are handmade by trained, friendly barista's in the traditional fashion. We use fair-trade organic coffee, locally roasted by Notorious Coffee Roasting Co. It is roasted in small batches weekly to keep it as fresh as possible. Milk shakes are also made the old fashioned way,using all premium vanilla ice cream and we offer all fruit smoothies made with real whole fruit. Our sweet treats are made by local bakeries here in Asheville. You can drink coffee anywhere, but how about atop an authentic 1963 British Double Decker Bus? You can't beat the coffee or the setting in Downtown Asheville.

“My favorite spot!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

The coffee is great, the lines are never long- but the attraction of this coffee shop is that it's a double decker bus. It's quintesscential Asheville. I love going to the top, sitting and people watching with my sister. I go every time I visit Asheville.
The coffee is far better than Starbucks, which is par for everywhere in Asheville. It tastes REAL, not like coffee flavoring in sugar.
Double D's is my favorite spot in Asheville

“Cozy, fun, and the coffee is great”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

This coffee shop is located in an old London double decker bus with the low ceilings and tight quarters that come with that space. The coffee though was terrific and of particular note is a Mocha drink they make that is generously laced with Cayenne pepper. Try it. I have a hard time ordering anything else at this fun downtown Asheville spot.

“good coffee and cool place to sit”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Spotted this walking around the city, and being a big fan of England, had to stop by. The coffee selection is really unique, we had their specialty drinks, "Creme-breu-latte", "Double Decker" and "a Kick in the Bum". They were all really good, but a tad over priced. The upstairs of the bus had sitting, but not too much. It was warm, which was nice since it was snowing outside. They played really good music and depending on the time you went (we went twice) it could be quite or a little crowded. If i lived here, it would be a place I would hang out and read with a nice cup of coffee. Although I did not see a bathroom...

“Why is this an attraction it is a bus and has poor coffee.”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This is an old british bus that has a small coffee station on the first floor, uncomfortable bus benches upstairs and some picnic tables outside. This is not worth going to and actually buying anything. The barista incorrectly made both drinks I ordered, charged me the wrong amount (it was less so +1) and made a joke to an employee of a nearby shop that all she gets is tourist. If you want, go by and take a picture, then keep walking.

“Cool”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Love, love, love the idea of sipping coffee inside a double decker bus! The coffee is not the best coffee but not the worst either. I also order the brownie sundae which was okay. You have to go just to sit upstairs.
