Undercurrent Coffee at Optimist Hall
J O S E P H I N E
The people of Undercurrent Coffee are just awesome! My husband is a big fan! He also loves their Plaza Midwood location. This spot in Optimist Hall is a must! Great service with a smile!
Very cool place. Located inside a refurbished older large building that now consists of food stands, restaurants, and shops called Optimist Park. Barista was so sweet and awesome. I got a brown sugar vanilla cappuccino. I'm a former barista and can say she made the drink PERFECT. Was so yummy! Not overly sweet, perfect foam and even had latte art on top. My only con here was the lack of size options. There wasn't one for this drink. The cup was maybe 10oz? I also went back, as I had been sitting outside, to get another 10 mins before closing. There was someone washing dishes you could see in the back, but no one helped me and the register area looked shut down. Other than that, loved my experience and will be back.
Fantastic coffee with interesting seasonal flavors. The Cinnamon Bun latte is delicious. Always love grabbing something here after eating at one of the many great food vendors.
Dont know why you serve espresso shots in paper cups. Made sense in 2020 but pretty sad to do that to your product now. Edit: I had a 3 star experience at the shop but the owner made this a 5 star experience overall. I looked forward to coming to Charlotte again to try Undercurrent again.
So glad undercurrent is at optimist hall as it's the only vender open and serving prior to 10/11. Got a few drinks (cold brew with oat milk, dirty chia with oat milk, golden milk latte) and each were good. Service was quick.
