A classic coffee shop is what you will find here. The place has the perfect lighting and decor to enjoy a relaxing cup of tea or coffee.

Located in the downtown are of Winchester, Virginia known as, “The Walking Mall”, Espresso Bar & Cafe is in a prime and beautiful location, surrounded by local restaurants and shops –  a great place to spend the day!

Walking in, I immediately felt relaxed. The baristas were friendly and knowledgable. I ordered my usual with a twist –  “dry”.

COFFEE TIP – A “dry” cappuccino is very little milk with primarily espresso. As I took my first sip, it was very robust and delicious. My husband, who has been to Italy, took a sip and told me it tasted just like the “coffees” he drank while there on business. Personally,  a bit too strong for me  so next time I will stick to old faithful.

I just love atmosphere of this cafe and the size is just right. I also discovered they offer Chemex pour over to purchase! You will find many options here and seasonal drinks too!

The owner, Lanita is so friendly and really cares about her community and staff. The baristas are super nice too. They offer soup and honey that is locally made and there is a “Secret Garden” out back, that you just have to see! Lanita’s vision was for you to stay and enjoy your coffee with a friend or loved one and this is the perfect place to do that!

Ceremony Coffee is the roaster served there and it is delivered fresh to the shop weekly.

I wish I didn’t have to pay to park to visit this establishment, otherwise, I would be a more frequent patron. Go visit this one for sure, you won’t be disappointed!
