I like this place, but I feel as if it's too glorified for what it actually is. The coffee wasn't spectacular and the inside was too open for me. But, not a bad place to just grab a cup of coffee real quick, just wouldn't...More

I'm not sure if the owners spent a lot of money on a retro fit-out or whether they have just not done anything in the last 60 years but this place is exactly what I imagine a 1950s cafe would look like. By European standards...More

This casual establishment located in the North Carolina State boundaries serves great coffee drinks at reasonable prices. Our lattes were outstanding. They also have items to add at no charge such as cinnamon or extra creme. The coffee cups and tops tend to be of...More
