“Bad service”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

Though this seems to be a corner stone of the community, I can't figure out why. The environment is very snobbish and judgmental, the, and no one every has a smile on their face. The environment is uncomfortable, but I guess that's okay if you're on the run.

“Mouthwatering Coffee”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

So...the coffee is AMAZING,but what really knocked my socks off was the pineapple, coconut, pecan baked good. Everything baked here is to DIE for.

“delicious smoothies & soups”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

I don't drink coffee, so I can't rate those drink options, but this is a favorite place to pick up a quick snack. They make delicious smoothies and the daily soups are so good & served piping hot. Homemade baked goods and chocolates are also available. Espresso News is hidden back behind Footsloggers & the parking is a little cramped, but it's definitely worth visiting for some fresh brew or a smoothie.

“hip cafe.”
Reviewed 25 December 2012

Espresso News is tucked away on a backstreet in downtown Boone, NC-- luckily the size of Boone's "downtown" makes it pretty easy to find. I frequent Espresso News at least weekly-- NOT for the atmosphere, but for the quality coffee (they know how to make an americano) and the quick (quickest in town, hands down) service. The people behind the counter may or may not speak and you may or may not feel "welcomed" there-- it is not the friendliest crowd in town. It is a hub of "Boone hip" clients and students, professors, and tourists. It is clean, they know their stuff, and it is really the best place in town to get a cup of coffee. I HIGHLY recommend going in for coffee and the some of the most legit scones in town. Another perk is that is it open late-- till 12 last time I was there.

“Best coffee in town”
Reviewed 3 November 2012

Espresso news is my favorite place for coffee in Boone. They roast their own coffee there, and it if your lucky to come when the owner roasts, you smell the place already from far. Also make their own chocolate, and pastries. Pastries are usually sold out pretty quick though.

However, it can be very crowded during university semester, due to all the students there.
