DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) A coffee shop in Danville is getting statewide recognition.
Brewed Awakening relocated to Danville from Martinsville last August.
The 2016 Virginia Living Magazine named it one of the best locally-owned coffee shop in the central region behind two others from Richmond.
Co-owner John Hale says the award shows a level of consistency and ability to grow a customer base quickly.
"Frankly I think it just speaks well of the entire River District. It doesn't just speak well of Brewed Awakening, yes we are the awardee we are proud of that. But really we are just one of many good places to be, right here," Hale said.
Hale says he and his wife see their business as an anchor on the south end of the River District.
He says small businesses working together to improve the area is one small step in the right direction.
