The meatloaf and bacon sandwhich was great but I highly suggest the shrimp and grits. That's what my wife ordered and it was incredible. I would highly suggest this place for lunch.

We are an owner-operated coffee shop, cafe, and catering company, with an award-winning chef. We serve organic, fair trade coffee; local, seasonal, and sustainable food daily. It is our mission to connect the food we serve to the farm it came from and to the people at our tables. We favor organic and North Carolina grown, but make concessions in both areas in order to highlight other farmers and producers with time-honored methods and very good products. We pride ourselves in being responsible both locally and globally, by recycling, reducing waste, and insuring all disposable products are eco-sound. We look forward to exchange between chef/staff and community in order to grow, and to meet the needs of those we serve.
