“Great Coffee”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

Coming from a larger city with lots of coffee choices, I can be a little choosy about my coffee. Banner Elk doesn't have as many choices. Luckily, they have great coffee here at this place. Music on saturday night was pretty cool too.

“Great Coffee Funny Guys”
Reviewed 24 October 2012

The coffee isn't the best part.

I'm not sure if it was Fred or Larry, but we had a great time sitting outside smoking and drinking coffee with one of the guys. It was the guy with long hair. He's an obvious local and knows the area.

We went here several times while staying down in Banner Elk.

We'll be back!

“Great local coffee and neat people”
Reviewed 21 October 2012

We've been here before and the coffee is fantastic. If you're looking for a good place to have coffee, stop by and ask for Fred or Larry. They are really fun guys and very friendly. They know a lot about the area.

“Great Coffee, People, Music”
Reviewed 22 September 2012

There aren't many places in the Highcountry where you can enjoy everything at one place, but Fred and Larry's is just that location. With great coffee and weekend music, it's one of the best places to hang out and have fun. Fred and Larry are both awesome. This place also serves a light breakfast and is a favorite or the guests at Banner Haven B&B in Banner Elk.
