The second story of our historic building houses The Black Water Loft. A cozy and inviting coffee house, the Loft offers a full espresso menu with many artisan style coffee drinks created by our friendly and knowledgeable staff. The Loft also features Old Crow Espresso – a seasonal espresso project developed by manager Rose McCutchan and Red Rooster Coffee Roaster – as well as drip coffees and single cup pour-overs from Red Rooster’s Organic & Fair Trade offerings.
If you’re not in the mood for coffee we also offer all-fruit smoothies, hot chocolates, italian sodas, cream slushies, a selection of organic teas and locally brewed kombucha from Buffalo Mountain Kombucha.
Come for the coffee and stay for the fresh, homemade baked goods.
The bakery at Black Water Loft offers sweet and savory treats created by Theda Anderson and baked fresh every day. Choices include muffins, scones, cookies, bars, sweet rolls and more, including gluten-free and vegan options. We also have bagels from Roanoke Bagel Company .
Our newly renovated space is perfect for relaxing with friends, plugging in a laptop for a little work, or a casual business meeting out of the office. Sit at the bar to meet new friends or catch up with the barista who is always ready to chat about coffee or goings on around town.
The Black Water Loft is the coffee shop that every small town needs. We’re very proud of our delicious specialty coffee, baked goods, professional service, and friendly atmosphere. We hope to see you soon.
