This place recently expanded and added a wine bar and a small corner for entertainment. The decor is contemporary. Nice place for a business meeting or casual date.

Good breakfast and pretty. Good coffee. Good Prices. Nice atmosphere. It's a nice place just to sit and visit with friends. There is a lot of room to sit and spread out.

I ordered the delicious breakfast that came with a side of bacon jam, boy was that yummy! However, the plate was 'garnished' by splattering paprika or some such thing all over it.

Great service and a great product. My wife had an excellent latte, I had an iced americano. Cheaper and better than Starbucks. Very friendly staff, we'll definitely be back!

This is a hidden gem, for now. I have enjoyed coming here for a few months. The location gives them plenty of space to quaint host meetings and meet clients with out all the coffee "niche" players. Stop by and say hi!

Not only is Paul the best owner ever...making everyone feel welcome and hiring the best possible talent...but the coffee is the best I have ever had. They are the FIRST in the U.S. to carry and...

Skip Starbucks and head here--I'm a true coffee addict and we stop here on every trip to charlotte! Caramel frappes are a hit for my kids and I'm in love with the iced mocha.
