About Us

When you come to Blue Ridge, you won’t find a lot of franchises crowding the streets. For coffee drinkers, this means no Starbucks, but that isn’t to say we don’t have a fine coffee shop. L & L Beanery, located in historic downtown Blue Ridge, offers gourmet coffee drinks and a whole lot more.

Built in the town’s historic bank building, it’s no surprise Lynda Thompson, Ownerthat in the original bank’s walk-in safe you find an amply supply of their valuables: coffee. With a huge stone fireplace and hearth, high pressed tin ceilings and an eclectic mix of antique seating, L & L Beanery exudes an olde tyme charm that abounds Blue Ridge, but they’re not just serving coffee anymore. Now with a full service bistro serving breakfast and lunch, and an amazing in-house bakery, you will always find a delicious array of edibles that will please your palette and your sense of home-town authenticity.

There is a huge difference between the franchise coffee experience and having a cup of coffee at The Beanery, as we locals call it. The coffee is always fresh, but blends vary as to what is fresh and available each week.

It takes getting used to, but once you get used to the pace and quality of the L & L Beanery experience, you’ll always feel like you’re settling for less in our modern dat convenient franchises.

At the Beanery, we offer:

  • Retail bulk Coffee
  • Free WI- FI
  • Smoothies, frappes, cappuccino and lattes
  • Featured in Southern Living, Southern Lady and numerous other magazines

Looking for something to eat? The adjoining Cafe’ serves our famous chicken salad on a croissant, her stuffed French toast, served as breakfast all day, as well as signature soups such as Chicken & Wild Rice, Tomato Bisque, and homemade Chicken Noodle.  Our generous portions and delicious desserts keep the crowds coming back for more.  A dining experience you truly do not want to miss.

Make a stop by the L & L Beanery Coffee and Café a part of your daily routine.
Your life will feel the richer for it!
