The coffee? Excellent. The atmosphere? A bunch of 14-17 year old kids that sort of loiter/block the doorways. The parking? It made it almost too difficult to enter/leave. Limited small spots and only enough room to pull in or back out.

We were out and about on Cary Street and wanted a mid afternoon coffee/tea. While Rostov has great coffee and tea for sale, they don't have seating inside for what little they serve. Online search, and voila, Lamplighter! No nonsense, local establishment with wonderful offerings...More

Great Coffee and limited selection of pastries and delicious breakfast sandwiches. A couple different seating options and can get full during peak morning rush and/or during nice weather days.

Went to their S Addison St location after visiting VMFA. Loved the setting and outdoor patio. Good coffee but iced Chai tea was not as good. Ordered some cookies and they were delicious.

Recently stopped in for the 1st time. What a disappointing au lait. The coffee was so bitter that I didn't even drink 1/3 of it. They also don't serve frozen coffees. Doesn't matter though, I won't go back after tasting burnt coffee. If I wanted...More

I went to the Morris Street location and was served the most bitter chemex of my life. Waaaay over-extracted. It is possible that the beans themselves are tasty, but whoever was pouring my $8 pot had no idea what they were doing. The pastries were...More
