We had good coffee and lattes here, and apple strudel. However when my partner returned on her own, and realized she was having an episode of low blood sugar, while waiting she asked if she could have a pack of crackers. The server charged her for them. Unbelievable. She later spoke to the owner who gave her a dollar back... More

I had a wonderful breakfast at this place. The coffee and food were both delightful, as was the atmosphere. However, the food took a while to prepare.

We enjoyed this coffee shop. It’s right near the Stonewall Jackson Hotel, and you’ll find better coffee here than what you’ll find there. It's an old interior with a lot of character. The baristas were friendly and the coffee was strong, there’s also a few tables to sit outside. Enjoyable place.

I stopped in at the By and By while wandering the streets of Staunton.and was glad I did. Light, airy, comfortable ambiance and one of the best reuben sandwiches I have had in a long time.

Stopped in the By and By for breakfast today. The less than friendly order taker (maybe she was just having a bad day) served me a tepid cup of coffee that was far cooler than the toasted bagel when it finally was brought to our table. She also failed to mention the cream cheese selection did not include a low... More

We met family in this coffee shop for lunch while traveling and enjoyed very unique, tasty sandwiches and beverages. My husband is a coffee critic and commented that his freshly-made cup of coffee was excellent. Locals frequented the coffee shop, which is a true testament to its true likability.
