Brakeman's Coffee & Supply
- Open Now
Had a lovely time at this little cafe. Wonderful seating for reading or working on a laptop. The staff was exceptionally friendly and my order didn't take too long to come out. The coffee was also super delicious, and they have some pretty interesting pastry options.
Brakeman's consistently provides a great experience!! I work in EMS so I go all over Mecklenburg County, and this is one of my favorite coffee shops around. Today, while in my uniform, I ordered a latte. Ian Lawrence took my order and was so friendly and engaging. He even thanked me for my public service which made my day. The coffee shop was quite busy, but I only had to wait a few minutes for my drink. I received my latte, made by Scott, and it was delicious. He was friendly as well. The customer service here is outstanding, and the employees should be commended for doing a great job.
Stopped by looking for a spot to read after visiting the library. This place is obviously a local favorite because the place was busy all morning I was there. They have a great spread of drinks to choose from and extend past the typical coffee shop offerings. I ordered the Queen Bee latte which was the perfect pairing for reading outside on a warm day. Also, they had a wonderful assortment of birds hanging around the front patio.
Amazing coffee. Amazing service. Amazing location. Amazing atmosphere. ----- Update 01/2022: Back patio has two propane heaters to help cut through cold days to enjoy a cuppa with a friend, while not having to be indoors. Thank you Brakeman's management and staff! Y'all rock! ----- Update 09/2021: The Apple Chai-der is autumn in a cup! Amazing! The Rosemary Brown Sugar Latte (w/ oat milk) is amazing as well. Definitely a place to enjoy creative flavors... especially in the fall.
Love Brakemans! My wife and I stop by frequently for a coffee and sometimes to read a book. Great coffee and awesome staff. Always makes for a great afternoon!
