We believe in quality, consistency, customer service and doing everything possible to give back to the community. Our shop regularly supports local non-profit organizations like the Rappahannock Rotary Club, Micah Ecumenical Ministries and the Fredericksburg Area Museum. The Italian Station also hold regular “Coffee With A Cop” events with the Fredericksburg Police Department and Fredericksburg Sheriff’s Office, regularly participates in and supports community events including the Marine Corps Marathon, Fredericksburg Pride parade and Movie In The Park with Fredericksburg Parks, Recreation and Events.
Our goal is to provide a safe, inclusive and positive environment for the community to connect for conversations and share experiences with one another.

For #RandomActsOfKindnessDay on February 17, 2020, the Italian Station partnered with the Fredericksburg Chamber of Commerce to “Pay It Forward.” Each customer was given an opportunity to pay for the next customer’s order, helping spreading generosity, giving and good cheer. More than 2,000 customers participated, making it one of the largest “Pay It Forward” campaigns in the country.
The event caught the attention of NBC4 News Washington, Virginia’s Main Street organization and Fredericksburg’s Free-Lance Star newspaper, all of whom featuring it in their coverage.
You love us. You really love us! Here’s just some of what real Italian Station customers have to say about their coffee, cake, customer service and their experience.
