Stopped in for a late lunch after touring the caverns. The 4.5 average stars lived up to the rating. Enjoyed a half sandwich and salad. The turkey was real carved meat, not deli slices. Fresh greens in the salad. Also ordered fried green tomatoes for an appetizer. Super delicious! With a cornmeal breading. Topped off my meal with a vanilla latte. Service was friendly. Cute and cozy atmosphere with lovely decorations. More...
Comfortable and friendly. Great service. Wonderful homemade pies
This is our second time coming to Luray and we have been here several times with both visits and we will keep coming back.

Great breakfast stop in Luray Virginia!
Great atmosphere and the pastries are delicious! Will definitely be back when we're in the area.
Was passing by on my iron steed. I heard the locals ate at this spot and it didn't disappoint. Loved it.
What a cute restaurant. Stopped here for lunch before going to Luray Caverns. We set up the patio where we could bring my dog. The food was really good, the service was a bit slow but was a nice day, so no worries. Definitely check this place out. More...
If your from here or out of town this is by far the absolute best place to come to eat. The food is very delicious the dessert portions are huge and the atmosphere is fun, cozy, and personal the waitresses are super nice and at it's very best they have every coffee drink type imaginitabal to compliment any taste that you might have at the time. My personal favorite is the VCWW (Vanilla Chai with Whip hot or cold).To me GGs with out a doubt is simply the very heartbeat of Luray with out this beautiful place I dont know what we would do...thank you for giving me and so many other people the very best dining experience in Luray Va!! ❤ More...
So cute! Excellent espresso, yummy food, and great service. Such a great place in this small town! Loved it :)
I didnt want to eat the food because it was that delicious I was more worried about savoring the taste of every bite. The French fries are some of the best ... (if not the best) I've had in all of the U.S.A. which means some of the best on the world. A+ More...
Cute little place. Small but comfy patio. They have beer and wine which is nice. Relaxed atmosphere. I had a glass of Chardonnay and chicken curry soup. Wine was standard and the soup tasted like a mild version of what you would get at an Indian restaurant. Overall a very nice experience. Would return. More...
Great sandwiches, loved the Mandarin orange and walnut salad with raspberry dressing!
Gourmet offerings at reasonable prices. Attentive & friendly service.Really enjoyed my Raspberry Chai Latte, almost as much as my wrap.
Love this place whether its breakfast, lunch or a quick stop in for coffee and something sweet they offer it all.
Love the food and atmosphere. Service can slow down when busy, but really who minds!!
John D LaVere
excellent steak and eggs breakfast, great atmosphere, friendly service
When traveling through the area I try and make time to come here. I adore the Dijon sandwich and the magical lattés. The decor and services nice which makes it the perfect café.
Cute cafe conveniently located in town. Nice decor & good food. Would stop in again! We visited for brunch (they stop serving breakfast at 11 but continue to serve breakfast sandwiches throughout the day), but looks like they also do beer flights in the evening.
Nice brunch near Luray Caverns
We have only been to Gathering Grounds for lunch when we're passing this way. Really good sandwiches accompanied with beverage choices. We don't dessert but if you're so inclined it looks worth leaving room for. We have been and we'll return. More...
Very cozy and great food! Small but not too cramped, and excellent service.
Great food!! They expanded once, but could do it again. Wish their old chef was back. Food is still great tho. Space is a bit crowded and seats are hard. Outside seating is lovely with spring or fall breezes. More...
Very nice lunch place. Friendly good service.
If you are looking for a different atmosphere with great food great svc and great coffee go to this restaurant in Luray Va. It is a local go to place.
Very nice café with a great setting. The food was good, especially the fries.
This is a lovely place to eat, drink coffee, and hang out. The staff are nice, the food is good and so is the coffee. Should you find yourself in Luray, I recommend eating here the most.
Great cafe with gluten free bread and cookies. And beer and wine.
Tried this place while visiting the caverns near by. Had the hot roast beef sandwich with onion rings and everything was delicious. Could have had more more cheese on it, but it was really good. Didn't try the canloi but it looked really good. More...
A nice little French cafe that has prices a bit high
Good food. Good peolple. It's Virginia!!!
Pretty good breakfast place. Baked goods were fresh although a bit too sweet for my taste. Coffee ok, not great, but we have high standards.
love the homemade desserts
Ate breakfast here on our way into Shenandoah. Very small menu, but my wife and I both found breakfast sandwiches to enjoy, and they were very good. Seemed like dine-in breakfast isn't really a focus of theirs, but had a good experience nonetheless. More...
Good food and atmosphere
The burgers and fries were delicious!
Hope burgers become a regular menu item. We had great ones for an early dinner Saturday. Sorry they now close at 7 pm but just go early.
the prices are decent are the food and coffee are all very good
Great service and great food.
Very nice place
Best food in town! Not to mention the service was awesome.
Very cozy with small town hospitality.
We had a fantastic time visiting this restaurant and sitting at the back patio with our three dogs!! Our drinks were brought with three cups of whipped cream and treats for the pups. The patio was so beautiful and well shaded from the afternoon sun! We received excellent service and everyone in our party was content with our food and the atmosphere. I loved the fish and chips, the pasta salad was raved about, and the fries here are so perfect! This will definitely be a spot to return to in the future!! More...
Fun, French atmosphere and delicious fries. A bit on the pricey side tho.
We stopped here twice for lunch. Service was prompt & friendly. The sandwiches had plenty of meat on super fresh bread. The cookies for dessert were delicious, just what we needed to recharge after hiking in the park. We dined in one time, did take out the second, and each time the food was spot on. Will definitely head back there next time we are in town. More...
The absolute finest spot to eat in Luray. The pies are among the best I've had anywhere in the Shenandoah Valley. I honestly and truly use it as the location to bring anyone who comes into Luray for lunch. Lead with the best!
Lovely, local eatery. Pastries are to die for! Coffee is amazing as well!
Awesome food, awesome service...apple pie was ridiculous!
Lovely outdoor space great for the dogs. Awesome food and coffee!
Great place for local especially for this kind of town. Thank god that they got a decent latte and iced coffee too.
Great restaurant and espresso bar! Great staff and fast service.
Servers are nice and very friendly.
Went here with my 2 best friends, we came to this cafe a total of 4 times in 3 days. It could have been 5, but they were still closed one morning when we went, just before we went hiking. Food was great, the ambience even better. Love the lemon meringue pie! More...
We were in town for a wedding and came here for breakfast. Super cute shop with lots of dog decor and a cozy coffee bar. Small breakfast menu - husband had the Burrito and I had a few different types of toast. The homemade GF toast was not a strength, IMO, but the overall ambiance made up for it. Worth a trip! More...
Absolutely fantastic. My family enjoyed everything. Honestly, best fish and chips I've ever had!!! So glad we stopped here on our way back home from Luray Caverns!!!
This place is amazing. My son’s favorite cafe. Lovely food, the staff is incredible, the pastries are delicious and the coffee is out of this world.
In town visiting from Houston and this is the best place we have eaten so far. The service and the food was excellent! The gluten free and vegetarian options were delicious. Oh and that coconut pie was out of this world. If I am ever back in town, I will be eating here again!!!! More...
Even though the restaurant was slammed we got our coffee and two fresh croissants very fast. Local coffee and fresh baked goods make this a must stop while in Luray.
Great local coffee shop and restaurant!
Rina Van Nimwegen
Great food, great service. Try the green fried tomatoes, super delicious.
Nice local establishment for coffee, sandwiches, and yummy cookies!
Had a fantastic lunch at gathering grounds yesterday, delicious turkey Cobb sandwich. Our server, Amanda, was super nice, professional, and even gave our dogs water. Will be back for more.
Food is incredible and the smoothies are amazing. Love this place more than any other cafe. Sadly I am not local or I would be here everyday.
Late review but - I stopped in here after visiting the The Warehouse with my boyfriends family! We all loved the atmosphere of this place and were seated immediately around noon on a Monday. The decor was so cute- we sat in a little "dog" themed area- which made me so happy! Our waitress had such cool colored hair and was SO kind and attentive. One of the other waiters brought over our appetizer (fried pickles!!) and we realized there was an odd number of pickles and we had an even number of people. We were discussing who would have to share one and I think the waiter overheard and immediately asked if everything was okay or if he could do anything for us. I love and appreciate that kind of attentiveness, it really makes the experience of dining somewhere so much better. We were fine with having two people split one of the pickles so we told him it was nothing :) Our food came out relatively fast and we told them we were in a rush so they rushed over our slices of pie we ordered at the end as well. We got a lot of food so I don't remember everyone else's order but I got a panini with tomato and cheese and turkey and it was only okay, which is why I gave this place 4/5 stars. The fries were delicious and I loved that they were so thin! The chips some of our other party ordered were tasty too. Everyone had a great time here- the lemon pie was to die for! The coconut I could have gone without ... will come back if I'm ever in Lorey again! :) More...
My husband and I recently moved to the area. I happened to come across their Facebook page and decided to look at their food pictures. All of the cakes looked so delicious. Since I had some business to take care of in Luray, I decided to stop in and see what they had. I bought myself a slice of cake and I ate it after I got home. I can only say that it is the best cake that I have ever had in my life! It was so moist and I could taste the strawberry flavor. I'm pretty sure that I may have to buy some baggy clothes, because I will be a regular customer. Definitely the. best. cake. ever. More...
My husband and I ate here after a long day in the great outdoors. We both ordered an appetizer, soup and sandwich, and I had a specialty latte. Everything was excellent, including our service. We would definitely go back again next time we are in the area. The earlier you go in the day the better, because they might run out of pie if you go late. More...
Enjoyed two good lunches here. Second was on a very busy Saturday afternoon, and it took wait staff a very long time to acknowledge our presence at the counter. Otherwise, food was top quality and well-presented. More...
We were visiting from Maine with our dog. The staff was amazing, offered up a patio table were our dog could come and rest as well. Staff was quick and continuously offered water and a nice dog treat while we waited for our food. Food was delicious. You could tell the quality of ingredients used to make our meals was top notch. I would highly recommend this place as a dog friendly location. More...
We had really yummy sandwiches and fries here when visiting town. I'd recommend and would go back if we're in the area again! It's a nice cafe vibe. Unfortunately the service was slow, but understandable on a busy day! I loved the fries- they look like steak fries, but thank goodness they aren't. They're actually crispy and delicious. Get the fries instead of the chips. Definitely. More...
Such a great place for a fresh sandwich or salad with amazing coffee and pastries...
Excellent food and service. Mitchell was friendly and helpful.
They have delicious sandwiches and lattes! A lot of choices to choose from. Their desserts look delicious but the two pumpkin ones I chose where dry. Staff is friendly and the atmosphere is casual and nostalgic. You feel like you are in someone's home. More...
Everything was delicious!
PERFECT in every way! Food, service and beautiful patio was terrific! AND we were able to take our beloved dog, too! Can't say enough good things!
Great place to enjoy the Nighthawks band based out of Washington DC
The cafe was really charming and the food was good and reasonably priced.
I love that all the burgers are vegetarian..possibly vegan?...and gluten free!! Delicious, homemade gluten-free bread and great coffee.
Visited today and they were very busy but still seated in a reasonable amount of time. They had a seat reserved for fallen soldiers since it was Memorial Day which I thought was really cool. Awesome selection of pastries, was hard to choose which one to get. I got the Turkey Cobb and my husband got the Winchester panini, both were excellent! Our food/coffee/pastries came out surprisingly fast for how busy they were. Our server was Mitchell, he was 10/10, super friendly and kind. Overall a wonderful experience, look forward to coming back when we are over in this area again. More...
Cris Laconico Osborne
Had breakfast here a couple of times. Good food & atmosphere.
Great food, great Coffee and generous servings on delicious desserts. The best Tomato Basil soup anywhere around, get a bowl a cup just makes your taste buds crave more. Staff was efficient, friendly and knowledgeable. Its a internet cafe too. Dont miss this place. More...
While enjoying a long weekend in Luray, Virginia, my sister and I stopped in for Saturday breakfast. Casual atmosphere and friendly staff complemented the excellent food well. The prices were more than reasonable. Overall, we loved it and will happily return again when in the area. More...
This was a nice spot for dinner. I appreciated the multiple vegetarian options -- truly, although why three different veggie burgers and not much else Lack of imagination? It was a solid burger with great fries, although they did mess up the toppings since each veggie burger has a slightly different set and even they can't keep it straight. I was also disappointed that on a Saturday night nearly all the desserts we saw on Friday were gone. Little was left except some items I'd consider more breakfast (scones, cinnamon rolls). It seems kind of basic to have dessert for the Saturday night rush, but that's not apparently in their business plan. More...

Great food and the best cheesecake I’ve ever had in my entire life.
Jacquelyn Morgan Hicks
Food was great and our waitress was so funny!
Good Food very friendly staff!
Great place to eat and great staff
Phenomenal coffee, friendly staff, and tasty sandwiches. Definitely the place to be in downtown Luray - great food and coffee for an even better price!
Always a good choice
Quick and friendly service!
Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Food is good too. Would recommend!
Super cozy and delicious.
Great cafe with good ambience and great service. The veggie burgers with onion rings is a must try
Very Impressed! Fantastic food and friendly, efficient service. Don't miss the baked goods!
Good food friendly staff. Gluten free sandwiches available. Ask about peanut and tree nut free options if you need that.
Very nice spot for a quick breakfast in Luray. Clean, friendly, good food and latte's. Liked the quiche of the day and the breakfast wrap. Only short coming is a limited breakfast menu. More...
Cute, trendy, and friendly place. Service was amazing. Excellent sandwiches, wraps, paninis, pasta salad, and coffee. Our kids, ages 16,12,11,and 8 loved it too!
Great food! Good staff.
Amazing coffee! We stayed in Luray for a few days and came here for breakfast a few times and lunch once. Their cappuccinos are so good - and their chai latte is amazing (definitely a must-try). They have homemade gluten free bread too (yum), so we had to try it out for lunch. Their sandwiches and fries are delicious! I love how it is decorated inside too! More...
Lorin Johnston Burge
Amazing Spiced Chai Latte
Delicious food and fabulous coffee. The wait staff is very friendly and the price are reasonable. Sometimes the wait can be exhausting especially on the weekend.
I moved to Luray two years ago and was a little surprised that there isn't many places to eat out. I stumbled on the Gathering Grounds and it was s wonderful experience. The food is delicious and they have homemade desserts too. More...
Great local place. Recommend!
Perfect as always
Local coffee bar and bakery with a small town yet hip flare.
Food was GREAT but wish they would sell other beers than IPA's only. Ex. Coors or Bud light
Gathering grounds is a cute little patisserie with great atmosphere and friendly staff. The coffee is definitely a must!
Very nice atmosphere and food. Friendly staff.
Very nice atmosphere and decor, enjoyed a sandwich and a beer. Services were friendly and efficient and I'll be back! First time visiting!
Visiting from out of town. This was a nice little cafe to visit. They have homemade pies and other desserts you can order, but I was too full to do so. I had the Mediterranean wrap and it was good. I also had a regular cup of coffee that was good. The prices are reasonable and my waitress was wonderful. I wish I remembered her name because she was extremely friendly. More...
Nice place! Wait staff was prompt and courteous when greeting, and my party was seated quickly. I went during lunch, and they were almost at capacity. They have a great mix of food options on their menu. I had a fish sandwich & chips that was delicious! Our waiter was quick to notice that our table's food hadn't come yet even though others who arrived later got theirs. We were compensated for the discrepancy. That's customer service! If we are in the area again, we will definitely be back to try their breakfast and happy hour. More...
Super cute little gem in an otherwise extremely limited area. My cappuccino was great, and the bagel sandwhich was delicious. Service was super nice and atmosphere was clean and quaint. More...
Busy place on a 3 day weekend. We had reservations, glad we did. Great sandwiches!
The California Black Bean burger is amazing, the staff are all very friendly, and the coffee is delicious!
This is a gem of a find! Delicious foods, deserts, and coffee! I left wondering why this place wasn't back home.
Amazing place to visit while in Luray. Staff was great and we took advantage of the special menu.
Love the people and the atmosphere and you cant beat their food and coffee!!
Boyfriend and I were in Luray for the weekend, and ate here for both lunch (day 1) and breakfast (day 2). For lunch, I ordered the Monaco sandwich with fries, and he got the Turkey Cobb with tomato basil soup. Both sandwiches were really good! And the soup was as well. The fries weren't bad, but they were really thin (kind of more like a chip). Not what I was expecting, but that's okay. Breakfast was great too! I got a basic croissant sandwich, he got the quiche of the day (ham and Swiss). Again, not disappointed, and the prices were pretty modest.Overall great experience. Food, service, and atmosphere all top notch. Definitely will come again and recommend to anyone. More...
Cute, welcoming restaurant with a friendly staff. Everything we tried was good, especially the hash browns and coffee. Cody made the best almond milk latte I've ever had!
Great customer service, good food, cozy ambiance.
Great homemade desserts & food. The service is always wonderful from host, wait staff to kitchen staff. Only downfall is it's not a very large building if you have a large party I would certainly make reservations!
I love this place!! The best ever chicken salad on a croissant!!! The coffee is excellent!!! The quiche is also delicious!! Very nice atmosphere, quaint!! The staff is very friendly and helpful!! My favorite coffee shop!!! More...
Absolutely amazing food. The sandwiches are carefully-crafted indulgences.
Great service and delicious food.
Super cute cafe with great desserts and sandwiches!
Good Services. Great food.
Wonderful! We visited multiple times and enjoyed every one. Coffee, breakfast, dinner, and pastries were all delicious. Staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely return on our next trip out to Luray. More...
This is the biggest hidden gem in Luray. Food, coffee, and desserts always taste fresh and amazing! Highly recommended. The place looks small from the front, but they have rear parking and entrances. A small outdoor eating section if available in warmer months. More...
Nice coffee shop with great fold. Dinner on weekends
Thoroughly enjoyed lunch here. The ambience is classy and the staff is efficient and helpful. It's a popular location and fairly busy, but the service doesn't suffer from this. The coffee was outstanding and the food (I had the club sandwich) was fresh and tasty. The prices are moderate. I didn't try the pastries, but my friends did and remarked at the freshness and flavor. Well worth a visit. More...
My friends and I visited Luray Caverns and were looking for a place nearby to grab a bite. I'm so grateful that yelp led us here. This is a cute, quaint shop with a mom & pop feel. Our waitress Cassie was super nice and attentive...even when I felt as though I was being annoying. Not sure if it was my imagination but I liked their ketchup more than the ones I'm used to eating lol and their cakes and pastries looked amazing. We tried out the Black Forest cake which had a layer of infused cherries at the bottom. Soooo yummy. Definitely would recommend this place to anyone in the area! More...
The food was great. Absolutely loved the decor and atmosphere and the fact they had local beer menu. I came here for dinner and the waiter and hostess were very welcoming. Great job ladies !!
One of Luray's finest attractions. (Wait, there's a cave in Luray? a river? a mountain?) Aside from being a cool hangout cafe with excellent espresso concoctions and pastries, at Gathering Grounds the food is consistant, that's an accomplishment in itself! And there's always a nice surprise on the Specials or in the pastry cooler. Dining alone is difficult in some places, but the wait staff respect workers and readers and thinkers! (and they themselves are all that and more too!). And when you tire of your ennui and solitude and you reserve or show up with a large crowd, they do their very best and have never disappointed me! Gathering Grounds! Hooray! More...
Service and food are wonderful! Great place to relax, enjoy great homemade food and feel spoiled!
We came here for brunch while visiting shenandoah. They have some veggie options. Can get busy here though. It took a long time to get hold of someone to get a bill. Overall it was a good experience.
Good food. Great coffee! Great staff!
Amazing restaurant!! We were visiting out of town to go see the Caverns. We decided to take main street to see if there was any good places. Based on the reviews we decided to stop in. Boy am I glad we did. Our waitress was phenomenal Very quick service. The chicken salad is out of this world!!! We also got coffee and bakery goods to go. Whether your local or just visiting this is a must if you are looking for a good place to eat with a great service and ambience. If I could give 10 stars I would. More...
Lovely atmosphere with tasty sandwiches and beverages.
Wonderful little cafe in the cute town of Luray. The menu was filled with tasty meals in addition to the full coffee array. My wife and I appreciated the vegan options and our nu-bull burgers were very good. I would definitely recommend for a tasty meal or good cup of coffee. More...
We visited on a trip to Luray and we were not disappointed. The tomato basil soup was delicious and our meals were great too! I got a Greek veggie wrap and my husband got a steak sandwich. Our server was attentive and sensitive to the fact we had an 18 month old with us. However, the person who sat us down seemed to have little patience and I got an unfriendly vibe from her. Overall, this is a great lunch spot if you are visiting the area. More...
Great staff and wonderful food. Deanne was the best!
What a great cafe! The turkey Cobb I had was an amazing sandwich. Best of l it was REAL turkey not some bland lunch meat. Yum!!!Although there was a wait, the hostess was friendly and they moved really quick to get us seated!Check this one out after a long day of hiking the trails! More...
I had met my brother and his GF at this wonderful restaurant and it was packed which made us happy that they were a "High in demand" type of place.They did not disappoint! The server Cristian was on his game and made sure we were taken care of. We had the Grilled Chicken salad, the Cobb and the Winchester and it definitely gave justice to the cook because they were all delicious.The greatest part though was the pastries. We had the Apple Dumplings and Peach Muffins and they were incredible. We have been to this restaurant before but the selection of pastries was not like We've seen. Definitely a step up.We will dine here again when we are in town.Tom WAlexandria, Va More...

I had lunch with my mother there for first time. Atmosphere & food was terrific. I had tomato soup & mom had veggie wrap - both were delicious! Will def be back.
Great for a light dinner. Fresh food. Pleasant change from the heavy junk food in abundance.
Nice location, great back patio, friendly and relaxing (though not fast service, don't expect to be quick!)
Good food and coffee!
Maid In Cincinnati
Great little coffee shop. Lots of options food wise . Nice atmosphere
Food was great, as was the service!! I asked for my fries extra crisp and they got it just right!!
Staff were amazing and super friendly. Try their pie specially the coconut one.
Very nice and cozy.
Soup was good. Don't know about anything else.
Truck Life 921
Great place for coffee and some breakfast! The staff was always nice, our coffee was great, atmosphere nice, and the bake goods akways looked good! Next time we vist, we'll probably stop in again for sure! More...
Best chai I’ve ever had! Good pie too
Quaint place for a good friendly breakfast in an area without a lot of options. Highly recommend. Would have liked to try one of their dinner nights but unable.
Great little shop for coffee, pastries, lunch and dinner. I just wish they opened earlier for breakfast and served mixed drinks at dinner.
Super cute place to stop for lunch if you're visiting Luray caverns! Fun fact: we asked if the owner of the restaurant is French. Our waitress told us no, but Luray has a sister city in France also named Luray, which inspired the cuisine here!We tried the French dip sandwich and the turkey club, with sweet potato fries and a salad as sides. Both options were fresh and the portions were generous...so much so that we had no room for dessert! The coffee was bottomless. The large menu offers plenty of options without feeling overwhelming.The decor is cute and homey, and we loved walking through downtown Luray afterwards. This is a great little spot for lunch in the Shenandoah valley! More...

Great food and service! Will return in the future.
Really great little place with a spectacular mountain view. Serves breakfast and lunch but I only ate breakfast. The food was perfectly made and exactly what I was looking for: bacon, eggs, rye toast, cappuccino. My Partner in Food got the croissant sandwich (bacon, egg) and a cappuccino. They say the croissant was really good: buttery, flakey, with the perfect amount of chewiness. The bakery also had a fun selection of goods: I got 2 cupcakes and a piece of lemon pound cake to go & I'll update the review once they are consumed (it all looks promising). It was a little busy for a Friday morning but that is to be expected for good restaurants in smaller towns and it didn't take away from the overall experience. I highly recommend stopping by if you're wandering the caverns or made the mistake of run-hiking Old Rag (don't do it) and need some refueling. More...
I'm rating this based on dessert-chocolate pecan bourbon (though I couldn't decipher the bourbon) pie and latte which was to perfection. We went twice and both times were super yummy. Hubby enjoyed the draft beers too. The menu has veggie/vegan options which is awesome. More...
Great Sandwiches! Pleasant atmosphere!
We had a wonderful breakfast! Tasty scones, foamy cappuccino, and a delicious croissant sandwich. Fantastic service and charming decor. Would totally return here for dinner! More...
Food was great, service was top notch. We'll be back
Amazing place! My family and I we're passing through on a trip and stopped in for a late breakfast. Our waitress was extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. We had some mix ups with our food but we didn't even mind because she was apologetic and fixed it immediately. We're thinking about moving to the area and would definitely visit here more. The food was delicious too! More...
Super friendly staff, awesome coffee, drinks and atmosphere
We stopped by for breakfast at 8:45am and ended up working remote here via the free Wifi all day long. The staff was so nice, continually checking up on us to see if we needed anything but always making sure we felt welcome. Wifi was fast and the environment was very happy. Staff were all full of smiles and the food was inexpensive and delicious. More...
Nice place for Luray!
The sandwiches were delicious and all the veg was very fresh. My family loved the brownie and chocolate chip cookies!
Billie Jo Mohler
Good food ,coffee and atmosphere . Friendly server. Kid friendly too!
My favorite place to stop in Luray! The coffee is great and the menu selection is great. The staff are very attentive and the desserts are yummy!
We are from Washington State and know our COFFEE! They make a great mocha and serve in ceramic cups! Excellent breakfast too and kid friendly.
Amazing food, coffees were yummy, the staff was incredibly friendly. Will come back next time we are in the Luray area.
Love this place. Best sandwiches in town
Had a delightful brunch this morning. Very friendly people! Delicious food and beverages! Our pup loved sitting in the shade near the front door watching people come and go while we ate. We loved it!
Wonderful coffee and ambiance!
Lover our lunch there on Saturday- only complaint was that we came back on Sunday to find they were not opened yet! Next time!
Very nice atmosphere and delicious deli food. Recommend the Turkey Cobb.
Cindy Wyatt Self
Good Food and Service!
Local coffee place. Stopped for lunch. Friendly staff and good sandwiches. The chocolate chess pie was delicious.We like to stop in several times while we are visiting the area. Sometimes just to grab a coffee. Sometimes just for dessert. Sometimes to have a nice lunch. They have a few beers and i believe hard cider on tap too if that interests you. More...
Great food and good service. Thier frappuccinos' are splendid.
What a perfect coffee shop! I went in for some tea and ended up working on my computer for quite a while (free Wi-Fi). My waitress was wonderful and accommodating! I ended up ordering lunch (soup and salad combo) and it was really good. Great space, great people. More...
Great place and great atmosphere. Great food and great coffee.
Service is wonderful, you find the food the best in the area. If you go away hungry that's Gonna be on you. But remember to save some room for the sweets, WOW yummy.
Awesome breakfast, friendly staff, we will be back!
Great food great people great views awesome experience
Visting from Syracuse, N.Y.. Food and service was great! Great vibe and cozy. I definitely recommend this place!

Good food, great coffee and friendly staff
Good coffee shop
As always a wonderful meal and mouth watering dessert
Love it. My neighbors rock.
This place is awesome sauce
nice and comfy food
We have been coming here since their grand opening years ago! Nice people, great food! Even better coffee!
great breakfast, very reasonably priced
Only had coffee to go from here, but fast and attentive service. The barista was skilled and knowledgeable, going off-menu with no hesitation. My soy dirty chai was delicious!
This place has really fresh, high quality, reasonably priced food and baked goods. Wish all the food in town were this good. Nice staff too. Will definitely return! More...
Gathering Grounds has great food and service. We love the the peanut butter pie and we love Penny!
A little on the pricier side for a small town, but food was good! We'd come back if we are ever in the area.
Tried this restaurant based on other google reviews. We couldn’t have been happier. The food was delicious and the service was superb.
I ended up getting coffee here every day I was in Luray, sometimes twice. They get pretty busy and sometimes cramped; not as much of a problem when you just need coffee to go. My mouth's watering just thinking about the Winchester Panini I had here, though. Pretty hipster vibe inside, which surprised me, but not in a bad way. More...
Great atmosphere, service, and food. My only complaint is that it's too far from to go to regularly.
Great coffee great food
Really nice place for our breakfast. Crousant sandwich was excellent and Mitchell was an excellent server
Good food. Eclectic atmosphere
I had a great cappuccino and the house made crackers with hummus was tasty. Service was good and friendly. Wonderful place to stop passing through the valley. Enjoy!
Food was delicious and so was the coffee! Very comfortable with friendly staff. Will come again!
Absolutely delicious food! Super busy so as tourists we knew it must be good. Slow(ish) service but the waiter was apologetic and worked very hard to make sure we were happy. Coffee was amazing. Highly recommend the fish and chips or fish sandwich. I don’t typically like tartar sauce but I could drink their homemade tartar sauce!!! More...
Happy to fine a place with vegetarian options, lovely service with a beautiful outdoor space in back, and our dog was welcomed!
Great atmosphere. Great service. House coffee was delicious. Gluten free options is a plus. Amazing food, high quality. A must... Wife and I will most definitely stop back by again before leaving town, and will come back on our next trip in town! Thank you More...
Very friendly team. Greetings from Belgium.
Perfect coffee, great atmosphere pleasant staff.

Loved this place. So much fun and variety.
Great food. We were there Easter weekend.
My wife liked the white mocha she had. Thier sizes were a little small for the price (nearly $5 for a 12 oz medium). Food looked and smelled really good, but we were just passing through.
This is a fantastic place to grab a bite.
Great pies and food
Awesome sandwich shop with tasty coffee. I had the special of the day - French dip and the butternut squash soup.both were delicious, and kept me energized for a 3 hour hike afterwards.
The food was great! I had a Monaco sandwich and it was flawless. The prices were unbelievably low for the quantity and quality. The atmosphere was fantastic. Even the service was amazing. This place is a must visit. More...
Just went for my first time, absolutely loved it. They were very busy but still attentive and very timely. I got the Marseille and their tomato bisque soup and it was incredible. My boyfriend got the chicken salad sandwich and loved it. Their house coffee was great, too. Everyone was super kind, it was the perfect experience. More...
Good place to come if you are a traveler.
Good coffee and delicious pie! Staff are friendly and inviting.

Deana is a great waitress, and you have to have the Derby Pie a la mode as dessert !
Delicious sandwiches every time we've been and good friendly service with reasonable prices highly recommended
Great Turkey Cobb Sandwich and super friendly staff. If only the food had been served a wee bit faster.
Really enjoyed lunch on the patio today and especially appreciate the"Puppaccino" that was brought for our canine dining companion. Great beer and wine menu as well. Will visit again next time in Luray! More...
I am happy with the WiFi and chargers around each table . I took my laptop , ordered one cup of hot chocolate , and spent a nice afternoon there .
Friendly service. Great atmosphere. Great pastries.
When we tried to find a best restaurant around this place we have got this place which is already been one among the top rated restaurants. It's in the midst of the Luray, VA. Staffs are so friendly that you will be overwhelmed with their greetings. The menu options are good even if you are Vegan. There are some signature dishes which you could ask the waiter also the dessert options are awesome. Most of them are homemade and you couldn't get much better taste even in some of the major restaurants in cities. Wow even we have liked the Mocha they served. Definitely a 5 star place. You can enjoy the outdoor seating as well. More...
Amazing dinner like in Paris without the flight.
Loved that they are able to accommodate our son's allergy restricted diet.
I always have a great experience here.
Great food and service
Great place! Food was delicious and prices were good! Prime rib a little fatty but very tasty. Honey mustard salad dressing was delicious but veggie burger tasted fresh but I didn't care for the spices used
A great breakfast, loved the pie.
Friendly service. Delicious pastries. Home away from home cooking.
Must stop if going through the area...great food, gluten free options.
Love the espresso and pie! Sandwiches looked good too
Great coffee an sandwiches!
Great for vegetarians!
Such a cute coffee place and very close to Luray caverns! The staff members were friendly and the place has high speed internet. We were in a group of 6, so we tried all sorts of coffees and everyone loved it. More...
Delicious coffee, pastries, and sweets. Friendly service. Very close to the Caverns and well worth the trip for a little snack after all the fun at the Caverns.
Very nice quaint place. Good food
Such a relaxful environment!! Friendly service and great food!!
Great food and staff. The most dog friendly staff we have ever encountered. The sandwiches were great, but the coffee and pastries were really outstanding.
This is a cool little place with fantastic food and very friendly service.

Great food and awesome people!
I would add another if organic foods were used.
Customer service is above and beyond. Food is reasonably priced and flavors are outstanding! Next time I come back to this area I will definitely be stopping by to try their beer, wine, and coffee selections. The ambiance is laid back and welcoming. Super impressed!Edit: the vanilla latte is the best I've ever had! More...
Outstanding food and service. The staff goes above & beyond to ensure customers are happy. When we arrived we were greeted with excitement as we were seated in the back patio with our two Great Dane pups Bruce & Ellie. Awesome dog friendly where a bowl of fresh water and pupichinos (dog biscuits & whipped cream).. My No Bull sandwich with fresh lettuce and red onions had fabulous flavor. Hubby had the cheddar cheese bacon burger and that too was absolutely delicious. Overall the food was fresh, perfectly cooked and the vanilla latte was a sweet brew that is better than most coffeehouses. We will retun to the area in the Fall abd look forward to our next meal at the Gathering Grounds Patisserie. Thank you to the entire staff and owner for making our getaway great. More...
Really cozy, with antiques surrounding the interior. Tasty comfort food and awesome coffee.Friendly staff. Local patrons were interesting and open to conversation even though we were out of Staters.A quite lovely experience
Cute, quaint and a good hometown kind of atmosphere. Oh, and the veggie burger was tasty too....
Excellent food. Always fresh delicious and welcoming environment. Desserts are amazing
Our favorite place to stop when traveling from NY to FL. Sandwiches are excellent but the pies are the real reason to stop. Can't recommend this place highly enough. More...
Cute local spot, and very pet friendly!
This place is top notch! My friends and I were just looking for a casual place for brunch after a long weekend in the area, and Gathering Grounds had been suggested to me by a co-worker. We had our 2 big dogs and a kitten with us, and the restaurant (staff and I believe owners) was incredibly accommodating. I inquired at the hostess stand about the pet policy, and the hostess graciously welcomed us to the patio where she provided us with water bowls, doggie bones, and puppucinos. The entire staff came by at one point or another to say hi to the animals and were all so cordial! The service was prompt (despite it being a busy Sunday morning), and my Monaco sandwich was delicious. I would highly recommend and will visit again next time I'm in Luray. Great job, guys! And thank you for your hospitality! More...
Good food and coffee selections, but we were too full to eat any of the cookies or pastries they had to offer. Staff was nice and everything was quick. Will be stopping again for breakfast before we go back home! Who knows, maybe we will run into the doppleganger couple tomorrow that we were mistaken for lol! More...
Excellent Coffee and Pastries
We have been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everything we have had was delicious. The weekend dinner was really good and good portions. The servers are friendly. Desserts were awesome too! More...
What a great little cafe in the heart of Luray! We came here for breakfast on a weekday morning and found plenty of parking out back and plenty of seating inside. The service was excellent and the food was even better. The drinks are also great, with my wife proclaiming that the chai tea latte she got was the best she has ever had. Do yourself a favor and stop here if you are in town, especially for breakfast. More...
Great as usual !!!
Great place with plenty of vegetarian options..
Nice Dog friendly restaurant in Luray VA.
Nice homey coffee shop and cafe. Good sandwiches.
Place is a must go in Luray, for grabbing a coffee or eat Healthy.They have great Veggie for vegetarians,salads and fresh pastries.
Great food, good atmosphere, it was crowded and took a while to get service but this was my first trip so it may not always be so crowded, there was a half marathon nearby that morning.
Very friendly staff, clean and homey seating areas, and of course great coffee.
Lovely place in Luray's main street! They allowed our dog to come sit with us in their patio and even brought out a puppachino for him! We ordered their Mediterranean and Veggie wraps, with their pasta salad, and it was all delicious! More...
Best restaurant and luray
The choose 2 was so good! Salad was fresh, flavorful and crisp. Sweets were delightful, cinnamon roll highly recommended. Staff was attentive and kind, beverage selection was expansive, 5 Chai Lattes to choose from! Definitely coming back every time we're in town. More...
Cobb sandwich was very good! Coffee was excellent. Cute little place with fast and good service.
Surprisingly good steak dinner here. I did NOT expect such good food for a plated dinner at a coffee shop. Will visit again.
Really nice little cafe, good service, fast food, great atmosphere. Nice selection of sandwiches, salads, soups, and ohhhh coffee!!
Excellent, unexpected gem for the palate in this town. Great food, which varies by week, reasonably-priced for the quality served, and the most friendly staff! So glad they are here!
This was a bright spot in Luray, there just weren't many other places open to eat but this cafe was bustling.It has a decent selection of pastries, sandwiches, and coffee drinks. Pretty typical cafe type selection with sit down service. The food was okay but not great. The service was wonderful and the staff was helpful and happy. Prices were reasonable as well.This was a good place for lunch in an otherwise dreary downtown Luray. I would recommend it if you are going through town. More...
Excellent everything. Coffee, food, service, and atmosphere. Food was so good that my fiancee and I got some cookies to take along for snacks hiking... some of the best cookies we have ever had as well. Would recommend without hesitation. More...
Excellent and quaint coffee shop. Great atmosphere, the baristawas fabulous! Worth the stop.
