This place is BUSY. They certainly shouldnt have much trouble making money considering the number of people they have in this small establishment. Still plenty of seating considering the outside patio area, but since I sat outside I could easily watch the ongoing traffic throughout the area. Im not sure how the previous reviews had much time to have a bad interaction with any of the employees because we ordered and moved out of the way before there was much time for interaction. I had a Mocha and my friend had vanilla latte, both tasted good.

Amazing boutique shop. High quality gourmet feel. * roasts and sources own beans * here in Charlotte we are spoiled to have such top shelf product. You should experience the amount of love that goes into your cup! Best in town award by me! Down to earth, lacks snobbery, does not ask about my age in relation to astrological charts which is a relief. Also try the baked gdds and get there before 9am and get a quiche.

Really awesome place! Came here, got some coffee, and sat down to do some work for a few hours. The inside is nice and the WiFi is pretty good. They also have tons of covered outdoor seating. Definitely pet friendly as they provide a water bowl for dogs

Great cold brew! They have a thing where you can build your own breakfast sandwich, and it is delicious. Super friendly staff and an amazing atmosphere.
