Had a delicious breakfast here. Had the special egg bowl which was spinach, melted cheese, onions and some sort of chipotle dressing. It was fab! Had the creamy caramel latte and it was delicious! Finished off with the crumb cake. Sat outside on the sidewalk and enjoyed the atmosphere downtown old towne. Very friendly people in the neighborhood saying hello... More

This little coffee shop in Portsmouth does exactly what it supposed to do… Serve a great cup of coffee. I'm not a pastry and sweet eater so I stay away from those things but they looked great. I was just concerned about my caffeine fix for the morning. This place did not disappoint. Not only that, but there are some... More

We were staying at a Portsmouth Renaissance and wanted to avoid our conference continental breakfast where there was no protein to be found! This place was perfect. A nice cup of coffee and breakfast sandwich in a quaint and quiet room. Indoor and outdoor seating here.

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

Always go to this coffee shop when in Portsmonth high street. Gave it 4 stars for two reasons. 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!

We stopped in for quick breakfast on our way out of town. Iced coffee was delicious and the flatbread sandwich was amazing. Totally recommend 👍🏻
