Coming from coffee heaven (snobby?) Melbourne we realise that on any given trip - especially in the US - that a decent coffee is to be savoured. Coffee here is either too big, to milky, too hot, too cold, just plain flavourless, or flavoured with...More

First of all, this is not Starbucks. While you can order some of the same types of coffees (Latte, Machiato, etc.), the real treat is the "pour-over". From my basic understanding a pour-over is simply slowly pouring boiling water over fresh ground coffee through a...More

We stumbled in to this quaint little coffee shop one morning and we were NOT disappointed! The coffee is outstanding and so is the service. The guys behind the counter know their coffee and took the time to explain why it would take a few...More

This is a charming coffee shop established by some Raleigh NC natives. The staff was very knowledgable about coffee. They had counter culture coffee, which was a big selling point for me. Stop by for a pick me up and some coffee education. :)

My husband and I live in NC and travel to Ocracoke several times a year. Since we're both coffee drinkers, one of the things we find challenging about the island is getting coffee very early in the morning. Most of the inns / B&B's on...More

These guys know what they're doing. Each coffee is lovingly crafted by super nice people who are quite knowledgable and kind. Best and most flavorful/interesting coffee I've ever had. My snobby needs are more than met

AWESOME latte with soy! Great, personalized service. Very welcoming and friendly. Great place to escape from the elements with a relaxed atmosphere that is as chill as the people who work there. Try a vanilla steamer and their delicious and hearty muffins. Very welcoming. If...More

This small coffee shop serves great AM beverages. We went a few mornings in one week and tried a little of everything (hot tea, lattes, green tea, etc). Service was great...you could tell they put a lot of work into each drink. We'll definitely visit...More
