Lucky to find this place. Kids loved it, and spent an hour trying to figure out what to buy. The owner made me a great cup of espresso, served in ceramic cup and saucer, and then didn't charge me for the drink after I bought a modest amount of rocks.

Driving and need a boost with a real European coffee? Stop here. Don makes an amazing cappuccino. He is super friendly and welcoming. Best coffee in Utah.

This is the best one in town. There are three rock shops all right next to each other. I will help you save some time though. You only need to go to this one. Not only did they have the best selection but the owner is an actual rock hound. The other places barely knew what a rock was. Also... More

A quick stop on our trip between Zion and Bryce lead us to this awesome place. Great coffee and an amazing selection of rocks and souvenirs. Don't drive by that "expresso" sign you won't regret it. The owner can answer any questions about rocks or coffee and is very friendly and helpful.

Yes, the coffee was great here. But we especially enjoyed chatting with the owner who helped us find the perfect rock for a friend. And then he gave us tips for traveling and further sightseeing, even willing to get his map out and show us routes to try so we could see different country on the way back to St.... More

Amazingly great latte, delicious homemade cake and a proprietor so friendly we hated to leave. Bought several of Don Davis' wife, Mickey's homemade creams, some lovely earrings and of course, rocks. What a unique shop - I would highly recommend stopping and visiting with the owner, a gem himself. My husband, adult son and I had a very enjoyable visit... More

The rock stop is a beautiful coffee place and gift shop. The espresso is the best in the area and the home made cakes are delicious. But what makes this place so nice is the gracious and lovely owners. Don is a super nice gentleman with a big smile and a true love for coffee! He definitely knows what he... More

Unique building. Don was delightful. The coffee was delicious. My girls enjoyed soft served ice cream for breakfast. The collection of rocks and gems is impressive.
