Whether you are in the mood for coffee, tea, breakfast or lunch, Purdys is a great choice. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is pleasant and encourages long lunches or work time in a good location. The homemade soups change regularly and are always wonderful. The lunch options are varied and are not too large for midday.... More

I love to veg in this place--warm and inviting. Excellent choice of hot tea. For the life of me, I can't understand the allure of the coffee, though. Several tries return the same thing: sour coffee.

Excellent ambiance and coffee. An oasis in a downtown setting. Perfect respite spot for everyone from college students, up. A meeting spot when friends come to visit.

Yeah, I've been to the usuals and they are ah, ok for a fix of caffeine. But Purdy's is the Java Mecca! Recently back from a trip to Sarasota FL, we visited the infamous Pastry Art downtown. Mmmm... So, Purdy's is to Richmond like Pastry Art is to Sarasota!

The refurbished Main St. building, is the first indication of the quality of the hospitality and refreshments inside. Excellent, friendly service and coffee selection along with homemade food! I am proud to say this fine establishment is in my hometown.
