Great place to grab a cup of coffee and curl up in a comfy chair with a book or magazine (or a computer if you have that college paper to submit). Convenient to LU, nearby hotels and a variety of restaurants!

Nice cafe with tables and outlets for studying or reading on your laptop. Only downfall is that it's usually pretty steady crowd, so depending on when you come, you may or may not be able to find a table to sit at.

This is one of my favorite places in the area. Good book and good coffee makes for an enjoyable evening. The staff is helpful and the cafe offers delicious food and great coffee. Recommended!

We love a bookstore. Add coffee, and you really can't go wrong! Stop by the cafe at B&N and enjoy a hot mocha, and iced coffee, and share a cookie or something tasty. It helps if you have a membership-save 10% on everything.

Yet another pleasant stop while shopping at Barnes + Noble in Lynchburg. The servers were pleasant and helpful and we were pleased with the side item selection. So glad Barnes + Noble offers Starbucks.

I visited this cafe and purchased a chicken wrap to take to my hotel room. It was SO delicious! I will definitely visit this cafe again.

Had a great coffee, checked out some books while my daughter, a freshman, collected her books and Liberty gear.

Coffee is good but sandwich selection is poor. Pastries and specialty drinks are overpriced.

Nice atmosphere for a coffee shop- couldn't get better than in the middle of a huge bookstore. They have a small selection of sandwiches and their coffee is not quite as good as a stand-alone starbucks, but their Cheesecake Factory desserts make it worthwhile.

Good choices for its venue. Very friendly senior staffers; everybody's friendlier than the book store staffers. I love listening to people on first dates on the different terraces--distracts me from my writing and reading but well worth it.
