The last time Lisa Brown and I drove along this stretch of US-11, in Verono (or Weyers Cave), this marketplace was under construction, and I made a mental note to return one day and try out their coffee.

Rumor Mill is attached to the Valley Pike Market and serves coffee from an area roaster called Crazy Fox. I'd sampled Crazy Fox at a kiosk at a farmers market in Harrisonburg and not been impressed, but the batch-brewed roast I had was decent enough to try again, if not necessary up to the craft coffee standard the I'd prefer.

Aesthetically, the cafe, and the entire marketplace, are quite interesting and enjoyable, and I think that they have events in the space, like live music.

The baristas were also quite friendly, and I hope that I can return sometime.
