We were staying at a Portsmouth Renaissance and wanted to avoid our conference continental breakfast where there was no protein to be found! This place was perfect. A nice cup of coffee and breakfast sandwich in a quaint and quiet room. Indoor and outdoor seating here.

The Coffee Shop is just across High Street from the popular Children's Museum. They serve a nice sandwich.You order at the counter and they deliver it to the table when it is ready. I have never had the coffee.The service staff was nice to the 3 children we were with and their questions. We would return when in Portsmouth.

This is my downtown coffee spot and is very close to our apartment. The Coffee Shoppe is a very quaint spot with ample seating including outside, interesting decor, and-in addition to great coffee, cappachino, and frappes-also has a surprisingly good member including delicious baked goods for breakfast time. Service is always great and is accompanied with a smile. One can... More

Always go to this coffee shop when in Portsmonth high street. Gave it 4 stars for two reasons.

Took my mother to lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Since most of the limited seating was occupied by a person demonstrating/selling essential oils to a group of women, it felt a bit awkward to eat inside but it was a bit too chilly for the sidewalk tables. The coffee & food were good but I wish we had realized that... More

Stopped here for lunch midway through a visit to the Portsmouth Children's museum. Relaxed atmosphere. People on their computers or just visiting over coffee. Tried a flatbread sandwich on the recommendation of the clerk. Delicious! My granddaughter loved her flatbread grilled cheese sandwich. And, the chips on the side were outstanding. Would visit more often if I lived nearby!

My wife and I were walking through Olde Towne Portsmouth mid-morning July 4 when it started raining; we ducked in here, and loved it! Attractive, casual environment; friendly staff; excellent drinks. My wife ordered a vanilla iced latte; I had the mocha spin. Both were very good, ample size, and excellent prices.
