The Coffee Shop is just across High Street from the popular Children's Museum. They serve a nice sandwich.You order at the counter and they deliver it to the table when it is ready. I have never had the coffee.The service staff was nice to the 3 children we were with and their questions. We would return when in Portsmouth.

This is my downtown coffee spot and is very close to our apartment. The Coffee Shoppe is a very quaint spot with ample seating including outside, interesting decor, and-in addition to great coffee, cappachino, and frappes-also has a surprisingly good member including delicious baked goods for breakfast time. Service is always great and is accompanied with a smile. One can... More

First they put way way to much hot sauce on my buffalo chicken salad (just on the chicken please) and their tipping options for card are for waitered service (if I am going to tip for counter service it will be a...

Took my mother to lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Since most of the limited seating was occupied by a person demonstrating/selling essential oils to a group of women, it felt a bit awkward to eat inside but it was a bit too chilly for the sidewalk tables. The coffee & food were good but I wish we had realized that... More

Stopped here for lunch midway through a visit to the Portsmouth Children's museum. Relaxed atmosphere. People on their computers or just visiting over coffee. Tried a flatbread sandwich on the recommendation of the clerk. Delicious! My granddaughter loved her flatbread grilled cheese sandwich. And, the chips on the side were outstanding. Would visit more often if I lived nearby!

My wife and I were walking through Olde Towne Portsmouth mid-morning July 4 when it started raining; we ducked in here, and loved it! Attractive, casual environment; friendly staff; excellent drinks. My wife ordered a vanilla iced latte; I had the mocha spin. Both were very good, ample size, and excellent prices.
