There is a Starbucks near Greenbrier Mall. Actually across the street in the shopping strip, near the Oreck store. I love Dunkin Donuts coffee. Addictive to be sure. In Olde Town Portsmouth, I split my business between The Daily Grind and the Kiosk at the foot of high street. They were building a new Starbucks on Effingham near the Naval Hospital. Not sure if it is one of the stores that will be closed before it even opens.

For my morning joe, I walk up to Daily Grind in Olde Towne (Portsmouth). Nice folk behind the counter, a newspaper, and good coffee (Morning Buzz). Before reading the other entries, I hadn't realized that it was a chain. As for the S'bux -- the building is done but I don't think the doors have opened yet.

When I lived in Northern WV, there was this coffee house/bakery that opened at 7 in the morning. That place was great. They even started making biscuits sandwiches. I need a place like that again.

I'll check out Daily Grind down at the town center sometime. I'm close to there most the day anyway. I'm a bit of a recluse, so I'll have to get over going places alone first. lol Thanks for the suggestions!

Hey guys....I currently live on Long Island, NY and am moving to Virginia Beach in September (I accepted a job transfer)..Anyhoo, I love 7-11 coffee in the mornings, but was blown away when my wife and I were down in VB a few weeks ago house hunting. 7-11s in VB do not provide milk for your coffee??? I hate those little half and half cup thingys!!! Ah well...I guess one of those things Ill have to get used to.

7-11 has the stupid "cup thingies", but WaWa has several options for creaming your joe.

I love love love SHEETZ, but we don't have any in HR... just Richmond. The coffee is great, I love the touch screen ordering and all the options, and the coffee I get there is half the price of the same coffee I get at SB.

Shoobie,
There's a place in the Chesapeake Town Center called "Bean There Cafe". I understand it's got a decent cup of coffee and light menu. I personally don't drink the stuff, so I can't speak from experience, but it's really close to you.

Yea they do, but have different flavors of stuff to fix your coffee. I normally buy the bagged 7-11 and have been making my morning coffee at home. I still like Marketplace BP colonial blend, but only get it when I stop for gas.
I don't use cream in my coffee, for some reason it's just too filling and gave it up years ago.

Ooooh, someone mentioned SHEETZ. I would go insane if they brought that chain here. Who knew that fries from a gas station could actually taste good?!? I don't think the coffee is that great for "glorified gas station coffee." WAWA has them beat on that.
