Caffespresso is a warm and casual place, with excellent sandwiches and coffee. The outdoor patio and the free lending library also make it a place you enjoy spending a few hours on a day when you have free time between appointments.

My title pretty much covers it. I really really want to like Caffespresso. I want to "shop local" and I certainly DONT want to support Starbucks and their nasty tasting coffee. This should be the place. However, more and more, I find I am disappointed by the excruciatingly slow service - why would the owner only have one person working... More

Have been many many times to Cafespresso! Claudio Ragazzi is the owner, and has the best espresso and choicest coffees around, including Italian coffees, wines, beers ! His coffee choices, ( lattes, iced coffees , macchiato, cappucino, chai latte,etc, ) are NEVER bitter, and he offers, as well, 100% fruit smoothies, hot chocolates, and especially do NOT MISS his Signature...

I was in town visiting a college friend. She had to go to a funeral and dropped me off here to wait for her. I had a toasted plain bagel and mocha. Service was quick and polite. Food was good! Nice music. I sat in the back corner and did some scrapbooking. Very relaxed, non-commercial atmosphere. A welcome relief from... More

We had about 45 minutes to kill in the West End of Richmond and wanted to find a cute local coffee shop. This was the only one in 7 near us that wasn't a Starbucks so we decided to give it a try. VERY happy we made this stop. Cozy chairs, booths and couches to choose from, one very sweet... More

This neighborhood gem is very close to our home. Today, while outside was snowing and raining, we adventured to have a quick lunch. As expected Claudio welcomed us with a big smile and made us feel at home. The daily soup and the panino (Italian for sandwich) were excellent so was the service. The atmosphere accompanied our visit in a... More

Wonderful small venue with excellent food, talented and beautiful baristas (Christy & Bianca), and the best cup of espresso in Richmond. I love this quaint little place! But shhhhh, don't tell everyone because it is small and I don't like crowds .....

What a unique experience. For Richmonders familiar with the set up here. Caffespresso is an espresso cart run by several VCU faculty members on campus. By popular demand they opened a espresso store in the West End. And every few months they put on their excellent "chef" hats and cook a meal for 16 or so lucky customers who sign... More

This is a true gem of Richmond's West End. It is run by a true Italian from Ferrara, Claudio Ragazzi, who does all the baking. It is great for a panini or light bite with some great coffee and fine wine. His paninis are the best I have ever eaten (in my 73 years) and made using his own fococcia.... More

Always delicious. Try a cappuccino with hot pepper milk. It's divine. The atmosphere is great. Thanks Claudio for bringing a bit of Italy to our neighborhood.
