“One of two 'Hot Spots' in Fredericksburg for Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

Do to the location, on the corner of the main interection of the old town, historical district in Fredericksburg, it is always busy. Outside seating almost year around. Can sit outside with your dog or nice seating inside for a wide variety of coffees/ tea specialities and things to eat. Very popular with the students from Mary Washington College, located just up the street.

“Best coffee bar around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

I Love their Ethiopian Harrar coffee.. I stop and buy it by the pound at least every two weeks (sometimes every week). They are always busy on weekends, yet the great staff keeps the line going quick.. they have a wonderful selection of coffee's and teas as well as frozen drinks.. and great fresh pastries. Highly reccomend this place to everyone... they have something for everybody!

“Best breakfast place in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

Seating is tight, as people like to sit w/their laptops and hog the seats. But the hot cider is terrific, and the coffee cake is good.

“Disappointing Chai Latte”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

I generally enjoy Hyperion Espresso, but this time around was a miss. A friend and I stopped in for some caffeinated hand warmers on a cold Sunday. It was a crowded morning with lots of students and church-goers. We waited somewhere between 5 and 10 minutes and I accidentally elbowed some poor woman who was sitted at the table where the line passes in the head. We ordered and our drinks came out in a minute or so, they are always very speedy. My friend LOVED her toasted marshmallow mocha. My chai latte was super sweet and kind of bland though. I have ordered this drink here before, so I'm not sure if there was a fluke mistake or they changed the formula. I was bummed. It still beats Sbux though, so I'm hoping for better next time.
