Foursquare Tips

  • Engage maximum hipster
  • Try some fresh roasted Blanchards Coffee!
  • Great location for UVA students. Great coffee and vibe. Ride a bike, as Elliewood's busy!
  • Walk past the bitter, acidic coffee they serve at Starbucks and grab a latte at Para.
  • Read this fantastic story while enjoying a cup of great coffee.. Enjoy!
  • Get a chai tea, add honey or sugar, pour some half & half. Boom ghetto chai tea latte.
  • Upstairs is a great study spot. And the wi-fi password is Espresso!
  • Great place for UVA students. They have free wifi and a great new study area upstairs!
  • Very good coffee and prices. In the heart of The Corner. They have free wifi and more tables and couches up stairs.
  • Your Sunday afternoon will be much nicer if it starts with a cold brew from Para Coffee. If the weather's nice, grab a seat outside.
  • Don't forget there's seating upstairs. :)
  • Blackberry Italian Soda
  • Really tasty espresso, however, they don't offer blended espresso drinks which is a total bummer and the iced lattes come out warm. Overall, great tasting coffee but QC and menu are substandard.
  • The espresso here is especially good. Best on the corner and maybe in cville.
  • Great coffee and cookies the size of your face.
  • Formerly "Para," but everything is the same. Get the house made almond milk. It's the best I've had.
  • Ask nicely to pour your own latte art chillest barista's and spot on coffee a can't miss for UVA students or people watching
  • It was a nice little place and the service there was great. I did have a small problem with the coffee I got, but it was quickly fixed and tasted perfect!
  • Charming place to study or meet a friend/first date. Good music. Could be cleaner. They do NOT validate parking, so take the bus if you don't live within walking distance.
  • No bakery items on Sunday. :(
