My girls and I always try to stop at the River Road Coffee House instead of Starbucks when we are out that way to get their yummy drinks. They have snacks too and the ones we have had were yummy. I think they have sandwiches too, but can't remember as that's not why we go there. The beverage selections/flavors are... More

I was in town for work and this place was walking distance from both my work location and my hotel. It has friendly staff, good coffee, and a great selection of specialty drinks.

This is a great local coffee spot. The ambiance inside is quiet and cute. The coffee is always done right and the staff is always friendly. Both locations (Newark and Granville) are locally owned and have a fantastic reputation. Whatever it is you drink (coffee, specialty drinks, or tea) they have it.

Good variety of espresso, coffee and teas choices, baked goods and a few light lunch choices. Free WiFi and plenty of room to read, socialize and/or host a small business gathering. Patio available weather permitting. Located in a big old house with a nice bit of hip, coffee-house charm.

It is a relaxing place to read a book while you are drinking coffee or meeting friends to share conversation and wonderful wholesome foods. A wonderful selection of drinks and snacks.

This quaint coffee shop is located on the town square. Service was very good and the barista was friendly. Nice find on an early Tuesday morning in Newark.

Decided to stop here after reading reviews. Cafe Mocha was great - not too sweet, not too hot. Just right. Pastry selection looked good if you're into that. Looking forward to my next trip to Ohio to grab a cup of River Road Coffee!

I stopped in to get a cup of coffee on my way to work in Columbus. It was my first day on my new promotion with a designer clothing company. I ordered a large house blend with cream and sugar. When i pulled up they seemed entirely too busy to even acknowledge me with anything other than "your total is".... More

There are two locations that I know of. One on 21st street in Newark, Ohio and another on River Road in Granville. They use other local producers like Petali Tea, Black Cat Bakery and One Line Coffee, etc. VERY POPULAR with locals and for good reason. We are lucky to have coffee shops like this.
