I was passing through and decided to stop in for a bite to eat. First red flag SHOULD have been that this is a combination bicycle shop and coffee house and I wasn't there for either. The food was okay, but I was shocked when I got the bill. I feel ripped off. Unless you need wheels or caffeine, go somewhere else.

What could be better than a combined coffee and bike shop? I don't drink coffee but my boyfriend said it was his favorite cup of coffee on our trip through Virginia and West Virginia. Marlinton is next to Monongahela National Forest, which we love... It is reminiscent of our home-mountains in the Carolinas but not quite the same. Anyway, this is a cool little coffee shop in the county seat of Pocohontas, WV.

The best veggie quesadillas I ever tasted!! The menu is just big enough to include something for every taste. The atmosphere is very informal. (It doubles as a bicycle shop and you can even take a spin class in the back!) You can sit at tables or in a "living room" style section. The coffees and teas are delicious, as well as the baked goodies.

Good selection of beverages. They use quality sourced ice cream. Nice vegetarian options. Assorted bakery treats to accompany a hot beverage. Not the quickest service, but a nice laid back place to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. Can roam the bike store portion of the establishment while waiting for your food.

Cool place! Outstanding variety of coffee and exquisite light meals in a wonderful atmosphere. The food is fresh and tasty, made once it's ordered so the wait may be a little longer than normal.
