What our customers say
We stopped at this cute local cafe for tea and a treat on the way to VA Beach. The gluten free and vegan carrot muffin is amazing - like a moist gingerbread! Several varieties of loose leaf tea (black, decaf black, green, and herbal) to choose from; I had the apricot black tea which was strong and aromatic! The children’s play area is cute (it even has a mini checkout station complete with a credit card keypad!) and gives parents a place to hang out while the kiddos are occupied. A great find!
I love this place! This is my third time coming. I ordered the Blueberry Pancake Latte, and it was amazing! The Beast Mode Açaí bowl was huge! Love the atmosphere/ambiance and the staff are so sweet and lovely people. Great customer service.
Great place for excellent espresso drinks and a varied, delicious food selection as well. Appreciate how the staff members always go above and beyond to make every experience a pleasant one. Our go-to place whenever we have out-of-town visitors, and never fails to offer something everyone enjoys. Lucky to have such a great café on the peninsula.
Of the many third wave coffee shops within a 50-mile radius, the cappuccino served here is the best of them all. The quality of the espresso, and the consistency, care, and attention to detail of the baristas make every trip here worthwhile. Great environment, great staff, and food is great, too.
First off, amazing staff very kind and helpful. I had never been before (yesterday first time), and the woman gave me recommendations, didn't rush me to make any decision. Then, secondly. The cafe is very clean, an amazing ambiance, and beautiful decor. And can't forget to review the coffee! I got the Persnickety Mocha Latte iced (per recommendation) and it was 100% amazing absolutely delicious highly recommend myself!
Persnickety's has personality. With an unassuming store front, Persnickety Crane Cafe offers a wonderful spot to grab a bite to eat or get your daily dose of caffeine. The baristas are kind, helpful, and seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs. Persnickety has a wonderful atmosphere where conversation fills the air and music plays in the background; it has energy. Family friendly (they have a small play area for kids), ample seating (indoor and outdoor), and great coffee, Persnickety is worth a stop and may even become your favorite place to grab a cup.
My husband and I have been coming here for a couple months. Every time, we enjoy our drinks so much. You can tell that each drink is carefully crafted to perfection. I also really enjoy the variety of the menu. Persnickety definitely caters to all tastes. My husband follows a low sugar diet, so it’s great that they offer sugar free syrups here. And for me, I don’t do much dairy, so it’s awesome that they have unsweetened almond milk as an option! I love supporting this happy small business.
Fantastic cozy coffee shop!! Owners are amazing people! The coffee was excellent and cupcakes were delicious! All of their to-go containers are eco-friendly and recyclable. Very conscientious! They have an exciting kids’ corner with a puppet show area. Great place to study or relax with friends. Highly recommend.
