I live and work close to Gallop and love dropping in at all hours of the day! Not only are the owners friendly and passionate about their business, they truly give back to the community as a whole.
You wouldn't think that Gallop would be a place to go for food--but it is. They are much more than a ""Coffee Shop."" The food is so flavorful, filling, and reasonably priced. I can't get enough of their brunch menu, which they just recently extended to 2:00pm everyday. (yay!)
The atmosphere is fun, and the patio overlooks an active intersection--perfect for sipping on a cold drink during a hot summer day.
These other reviews really surprise me! I have had fantastic experiences there for several years now.
In response to the laptop comment, I can completely understand why they would be a little upset about that. I hate when people walk in, order one drink, and sit down for hours on their computer. It's one thing in a chain coffeeshop where there's plenty of room, but this place is quaint and meant for enjoying your drink and food, not hogging the space for work. That's just my opinion.
Do yourself a favor and check it out for yourself!
Pros: flavorful food, delightful cocktails, friendly staff
