    Lamplighter is known for their micro-roasted coffee. Made in 10lb batches, there is a great deal of care put into their product. Their menu is stellar and most dishes can be made vegan or gluten free

    Not only is this the best coffee you'll ever have, but the food is amazing. Fresh, local ingredients and always changing. Also, the owners are some of my favorite people. Love ya Jen and Noellle!

    Ahh tip no. 2. Food: Two things come to mind. One, HIPPIE GREENS. They are delicious and I often order them by themselves for a fortifying, nutritious, low cal lunch. Two, FRENCH TOAST. Yummy!

    Go for the cappuccino, espresso, and macchiato. I hear the sandwiches are all awesome, no comment (only had two, meh)... but the coffee drinks I mentioned keep me coming back. Best in Richmond.

    I always love a friendly greeting at a coffee shop. Sets the tone for the atmosphere! Thank you for the prompt and accurate service! The Asiago bagel was delicious.

    For breakfast that looks as pretty as it tastes, get the parfait. Lamplighter’s own granola tops off layers of yogurt and fresh fruit, inside one of these lovely, faceted Mason jars.

    The redheaded stepchild is a combination of chai and apple cider and is SUPER spicy. The mac and cheese is delicious.

    Maybe my favorite Americano in Richmond. The special sandwiches are always good, too - get the dude ranch if they have it!

    Coffee is amazing. Pastries are all quite good as well - even the croissants which look a bit sad but are lovely and crisp!

    Since the menu refresh they only do a 6oz cappuccino. But this has the perfect coffee/milk ratio. No sugar required, and quite delicious.

    Get a Slayer with the vegan sausage. I'm not vegan, but it's maple glazed with a hint of sriracha. So dank.

    Just sit back and listen. There's always a self-absorbed hipster waxing on about the importance of their being, Very entertaining.

    Parking sucks. The wait is ridiculous. They DO have good coffee, but Lamplighter is Hipster Central. Still a nice place to hang out, if you go when it isn't so crowded.

    They don't put much ice in the iced coffee, so no need to order a larger one to make up for it!
