“Like Mama's House - With A Coffee Counter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Dogs Barking. Old People Sitting At The Table. Kids Underfoot. Newspapers Everywhere. Two Bathrooms. Sun Shining Through The Window. Sitting On The Porch Talking. The Smell of Cinnamon and Coffee and Something Good From The Oven...
It's like someone set up a coffee counter at Mama's house and everyone in the neighborhood came at the same time. We have lived in Fxbg for two and a half years now and have been to Hyperion many, many times. We've struck up conversations with strangers who later became our friends. One of Fxbg's "golden spots" as far as we are concerned.

Oh, almost forgot: the coffee's good, too!

“What a disappointment”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

I have lived in Fredericksburg for almost 20 years and have heard of the Hyperion many times but didn't get to visit it for myself until New Year's Eve. WHAT A DUMP! I couldn't believe it. The place looks like it should be condemned. The hot chocolate was so bitter I had to throw it away. My son has been there a few times and the workers are always rude to him and his friends. Don't get what all the hype is about, but it is nothing but hype. Go to Goolricks!

“You're there to amuse the staff”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

Pricey, but good, coffee served with the attitude that the staff are doing you a favor by filling your order. A place to be seen rather than enjoy the product.

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

My boyfriend and I recently moved to Fredericksburg and coffee is a must! I got the spiced maple mocha which was delicious! While my boyfriend got the gingerbread latte which was also to die for! We also shared a slice of the cinnamon Pullman bread! And enjoyed it at a cute table out side! Very cute! And in walking distance to our house!

“You will throw rocks at Starbucks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

This ia my all time favorite cup of coffee. I always get a grande mocha with whip, caramel, and an extra shot of expresso. Okay not that you have it close your eyes and take a sip. For me the first sip tastes like a roasted marshmellow. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
