I stopped here before business meetings in the area. Great, friendly service with excellent coffee selection and a few choices for very light food. Great place to meet up or just relax to start your day. The entrance is a bit small so look closely so you don't walk right by.

The space is cool, very urban, very funky. It's a hip coffee shop with good seating next to the movie theater. I do find the menu to be slightly limited. Coffee drinks and a handful of sandwiches. I had an ice tea and a chicken salad sandwich. The tea didn't have enough ice. The sandwich was good, but not great.... More

The coffee, latte, was great. It's a personable little coffee shop that you would expect to find in Seattle not Wayne. If you want a quaint coffee house with great coffee this is your stop. Expect to pay a little more but I think it's worth it. Not a great meeting place for clients as it can get pretty tight... More

Heard this served the best coffee in Wayne from my Aussie friends. They are pretty discerning coffee drinkers so seized the opportunity to check it out for myself. Liked the atmosphere and the coffee was enjoyable- flavor able without being overly bitter

First time here, will definitely be back. Fantastic baked goods, sandwiches, etc. Good coffee. Lots of options. Fast wifi. Lots of seating. Cute with an artsy vibe.

We live in Wayne and eat lunch there - great sandwiches. I want to write about nights at the cafe. There is not much night life in our town for young people. My son has been going there for drinks (non alcoholic) on a Saturday night for four years. The owner expects decorum; if you act in accordance with the... More

The Gryphon cafe in Wayne has been a steadfast favorite for some years now. The customer base may have changed over the years, but the Gryphon has continued to offer excellent coffees, teas and specialty drinks, as well as a variety of edibles for breakfast, lunch and in-between. Gone are the days of sitting down for a leisurely coffee and... More

Great, and busy, little coffee shop. You can enjoy free internet while having breakfast, lunch or dinner. The sandwiches and soups are always good and made as you wait. The only problem might be finding a table.

The best drinks and simple eats you can imagine. Try the carrot bisque. Fresh goodies so when they are gone that's it for the day. Ample size cups and the atmosphere is old world coffee shop with local art, music and even a business card board. Bring cash no cards

Gryphon roasts their own beans and the cappuccinos are delicious. This boho coffee hangout is very unique and popular so getting a table may be tough. Love the polish pottery too.
