Happy Creek is a great little shop. I've been to the Purcellville location a few times, but I like the Front Royal original better. Good coffee, good food and friendly workers. Their beans are roasted in house; they're not exceptional, but solid. Pour-overs are available,...More

Lanie makes the best lattes in town, love the GF baked goods as well! Their vegan chili was really full of flavor and the oatmeal bar is full of options. You won't be disappointed if you head here for your caffeine!

This is a great coffee joint. I believe it is completely gluten free. We had breakfast sandwiches. Not cheap but very tasty and delicious. Coffee was fantastic. Barista was friendly and informative. He suggested an excellent roast. When in the area definitely check it out.

Wonderful options for food and drink, and they are gluten free. The sandwiches were delicious, although they were small. We got the southwest veggie and turkey club. Coffee was tasty. They offer seating inside and one table outside. Pleasant environment. Sandwiches were decently priced, given...More

We start by roasting our own coffee, then we grind each cup and brew it right before you drink it. Can you get more fresh than that? All of our tasty baked items are gluten free and we are pursuing a lunch menu - coming soon! We have a rotating monthly artist for your viewing pleasure and every Friday night we have a band, for your listening pleasure!
