Just had coffee while listening to Martin Grosswendt and Susanne Salem-Schatz play old time jazzy-bluesy music. It's a perfect venue for this type of music and the proprietors were quite nice.

Ordered an iced latte and not cool, ice melted and warm. Stale tasting coffee and no signage of prices in shop on wall. Not very organized. Not impressed. Chalked up to the worse coffee I have purchased.

Very friendly service and the gentleman at the counter was very welcoming. Coffee has great flavor and the vanilla iced coffee was the best I've had in a very long time. Make sure you have cash handy because the shop doesn't accept cards.

Very cool place in New Bern to grab a coffee. A variety of coffees are available. Atmosphere is a little Haight-Asbury ish.

We were surprised how many New Bern places close early on a Sunday like this place. After visiting attractions all day, we were looking for a place for coffee or a cold drink. Hard to find in downtown New Bern after 5pm on a Sunday.

The man helping us was very nice but didn't seem to know what he was doing at the register and got confused with my order of iced coffee. The menu shows $2.25. He tried to charge me $6+ then said oops $5.40. I questioned him but didn't fight it and gave him $5.40. He gave me a dollar back. Strange

Recently stayed a couple of days in New Bern on the river and was delighted to discover this coffee shop so close to the hotel. Great Java and wonderfully, friendly staff!

I love the Trent River Coffee shop and enjoy their cafe lattes. The guy behind the counter pulls his espresso shots manually and it is certainly a taste that one notices. They do not take credit cards, but as the prices aren't high, that isn't much of an issue. I enjoy the local down home feel of the place and... More
