A Local's Perspective of Agora - Edit

My wife and I live very close to this establishment. We remember the nice elderly couple who lived in the old yellow house before it was taken over by two young women who turned it into a business: selling good coffee and finger food. Agora is in a cool historic house. We look forward to Agora maturing and wish them well.

great vegan desserts - Edit

Got a vegan wrap and cookie. Wrap was meh but the cookie was GREAT. This is a perfect place to go for good vegan coffee and pastries with a nice, calm atmosphere.

Decent selections, great coffee. - Edit

The wraps they offer are premade, they do a good job of placing expiration dates on most items so that's nice. Good selection of vegan sweets just double ask what's vegan seemed to be some confusion. Kombucha on hand. And some alternative plant milks for espresso or coffee.

Best vegan-friendly coffee place, and I've been to many! - Edit

If you're looking for any, some, or all of the following:
- Freakin' AMAZING coffee and tea (including "adult" coffees and specialty liquors)
- Freakin' AMAZING fresh bakery items, sandwiches, etc., both baked live in house and by local vendors, including vegan/dairy-free options
- Awesome vibe, with great casual seating
- Warm, welcoming, and super freakin' nice people (the owners, a pair of young sisters and their family running the joint; i.e. locally owned
- Free wifi, charging stations, & dog-friendly outdoor seating
- Used bookstore
- free parking within a block
- Live performances
- Many locally-made crafts and wares for sale
- Did I mention the freakin' AMAZING COFFEE?!?!?!

This place captures everything I've been looking for in a local coffeehouse: absolutely delicious coffee (including "adult coffee" with unique liquor mixtures) in a variety of roasts and flavors from a local roaster, dairy-free/vegan options (including fresh, made in house baked goods), local vendors for their food and crafts/wares for sale, free wifi, live music, an intimate, warm and welcoming atmosphere that encourages you to stay and come back, and staff that are truly wonderful people. The two young sisters that run this converted house in historic downtown Fredericksburg are models for locally-owned, hardworking business owners. Always with smiles on their faces, quick to greet you, answer questions, and make recommendations. If I lived within walking distance and could afford it, I'd be spending all my free time and money there. They've crafted some really fantastic and interesting flavor combinations. First time there I had a caramel/brown sugar/cinnamon soy latte in a real coffee mug and fresh made blueberry/coconut oatmeal served in a mason jar. The salted chocolate chip cookies and pumpkin muffins are mouthwatering and you would never suspect they are vegan. Even fooled a hardcore carnivore I was with. And prices are more than reasonable. Please give them a try and support a local business.

Pros: Wide, eclectic variety of beverages/quality coffee, Many vegan goods baked fresh in house daily, cozy, warm, inviting atmosphere & owners

Cons: I don't live closer, I'm not filthy rich so I can't eat all meals there, There's only one of these places
