Parliament Espresso & Coffee Bar
Best flat white in uptown. The pastry is really good too. It's an intimate place with plenty of seating for lounging and having a conversation. I've never seen this place too crowded either. I've used their app to pay out the counter although I'm not sure I see where the value is other than not having to grab your credit card out. I've seen where you can pay ahead - again I've never seen it too crowded where I thought it would have been a time saver. If french press is more your thing, I recommend Amelie's a few blocks away instead.
I agree that the flavor of flat white is amazing. I only took one star off because you have to sign a receipt each time you order. But the service is relatively quick to compensate. The atmosphere is spacious. The hours of operation are a bit narrow in my opinion.
The staff was great and very knowledgeable. The atmosphere was very comfortable and quite. The Latte was very smooth and better than expected. Will definitely visit again, when in Charlotte.
Great find and even better coffee. Come to Charlotte often and this will be my new go to coffee shop.
I always order the Macchiato. The vibe of this place is awesome. The coffee is smooth and not bitter like Starbucks. And the cost is MUCH better.
