The Coal River Coffee Company is a new shop in St. Albans, West Virginia, that treats gluten-free guests to daily baked goods. And most items are dairy free too!
The coffee can be served black, sweetened naturally, or sugar-free and they have some dairy-free specialties that are already becoming house favorites. Like Gary’s Jolt, a combination of maple syrup, coconut oil, a cup of Olde Main Roast coffee and a smidgeon of cocoa powder.
For creamy espresso drinks, the staff is happy to swap almond milk or coconut milk into your beverage. And some of the frappes can be enjoyed without whipped cream. According to the staff, all of their syrups are dairy-free except for the White Chocolate. And this reportedly includes the dark chocolate sauce, so you can enjoy a dairy-free mocha or hot chocolate.
For non-coffee drinkers, they serve local black and herbal varieties from Larkin Tea Company. They also have Italian sodas and mint lemonade.
The pastry options include gluten-free and dairy-free treats like paleo pumpkin muffins, cocoa rice bars, and coconut-lemon pound cake (pictured below). And the other breakfast items, like baked oatmeal, can be enjoyed dairy free, as long as you skip the Greek yogurt.
They also have a few lunch items, which we’ve been told are also dairy-free and gluten-free. They include budget-friendly chicken salad, quinoa salad, and a soup special.
