Demolition Coffee opened in the Old Towne section of Petersburg, Virginia in 2010. As the Historic District name suggests, this is the oldest part of Petersburg, with many buildings remaining from the 18th and 19th centuries. Today’s Old Towne features boutiques and restaurants and is populated with young adults residing in warehouses-turned-lofts. The building Demolition sits in was built in 1879 for Southern Railway Express. The owner/developer has left much of the old brick exposed, lending the coffee house that classic urban adaptive reuse vibe.
Besides the menu of traditional coffee house beverages, Demolition offers a pretty wide selection of breakfast items, including made-to-order waffles, and lunch salads and sandwiches, with names like The Smokin’ Joel and D Rockin’ Rueben. When you’re done, you carry your dirty dishes to the tub sitting outside the bathrooms, on your way out. We just stopped in for a break on a long drive, and we’d certainly return if we find ourselves back in the area.215 East Bank Street Petersburg VA 23803 804-732-2991 Demolition Coffee’s Website Demolition Coffee on Facebook
