Julia's Cafe and Books
- Open Now
A hidden gem for sure! And with sales benefiting a charitable cause as well. The coffee and food selection seems quite broad, and they have different types of cow and plant milk for your dietary desires. My latte arrived hot and tasty, and allowed me to with warm hands! With my coffee I perused the book selection, and it's quite diverse, from children's books to vintage book, even bibles and nutrition options to choose from. I needed up grabbing a vintage historical fiction novel I hope to enjoy from 1945 and in great condition! Definitely a great place to browse, and if you have kids or are in need of childrens books, there are tons at very affordable prices.
This was a pleasant surprise. I've working at Habitat around the Triangle area before relocating here and they do not have cafes attached to them. Yet, this was much more than a cafe (see pictures of food, books, and movies)! The staff, like most Habitat locations, was very friendly and helpful. I learned that in the Charlotte area alone, Julia's cafe receives thousands of books each year which every folks can buy for as little as $1. But they have a special section set aside of rare books. Those books will cost a little more, yet nothing outrageous. Now, they also have movies for sale which looked brand new and perfect for cold days like we have coming up. On the way in or out, don't forget to grab a drink or pastry which looked amazing. I would definitely recommend stopping by!
Service: 10/10 Very nice ladies, quick and courteous Cleanliness: 10/10 Very clean and sanitary Staff: 10/10 They took my order correctly, and explained the menu when I had questions Atmosphere: 11/10 A caf, in a used book shop??? It doesn't get any better than this Busy: 6/10 Steady traffic but not crowded Value: 10/10 Whoever prices the books, must also know what it's like to buy used books, never seen fairer prices. Overall: 10/10 I highly recommend this place. And the iced mocha tastes better than any I ever had, legit, on gawd. 100% I like Barnes and Noble, but I'd much rather support small business
Great used book store experience. Quaint and warm. Check out the children's book section, especially if you are a teacher. Had the nitro cold brew which was bitter.
An Absolute Delight! The perfect balance of books mixed with yummy coffee/latte/tea. Delightful!
