Description: Benelux Coffee is Raleigh Roasted. We started roasting our beans in small batches specifically for our cafes. The original Benelux opened on the East Side of Downtown Raleigh in 2010 with just coffee and tea on the menu. By early 2011, Belgian Wafels were added and became a huge success. We started baking most of our baked goods and creating sandwiches at our Alexander Family Y.M.C.A. Location in 2012. Now we're preparing to open our Cameron Village location for this December. Our passion is to bring a little piece of the Benelux countries to Raleigh, NC. Fresh Coffee, made to order Belgian Wafels, Belgian-style Biers, and a gathering for Cyclists is what we love. Cheers!

Not sure if we just hit it at an off time, but there was a reasonable number of people in line (not crazy out-the-door lines) but the wait was over 20 minutes in line just for two large (plain) coffees (the waffles were yet another 10 minutes).

The coffee was core of the sun hot, and very, very delicious. Flavorful, rich, and smooth. While the waffles were delicious too, they were overly smothered with syrup and butter for my personal taste. I felt the waffles were drowned too much to really be appreciated.

The interior of the shop was charming and there are two tables outside, which made for a nice place to sit. It's a cute section of town, and it made for a nice place to stroll with a coffee.

Just go, get a king, sit outside and enjoy the fresh air! We go to this place for espresso every time we are in Raleigh.

Such a neat place! Benelux is in a great downtown location. My husband and I love all of their waffles and unique "breakfast" type dishes (which are served all day). We have never had a quiche of the day we didn't like. The cafe also has great drinks.

Definitely a cozy coffee shop and in a nice area away from the busy downtown Raleigh. Located in the City Market Benelux is a great comfty coffee shop with awesome food selections. I ordered the Madame Waffle and it savored every taste buds. The hot chocolate was great as well, made to the right temperature (some burn your tongue). I relaxed while working on my laptop, calm setting. Will definitely return again.

Customer service is top shelf without presumption.
The Barista asked If wanted a Starbucks macchiato or a real macchiato.
