This is a small but really unique place, with a diversity of seating - chairs/tables, sofas, benches, etc. The hot chocolate was good, and there were a variety of sipping chocolates also, and plenty of coffee options. A fun place to hang out, with a nice atmosphere.

There is quite an extensive menu of coffees and teas. If you just want plain old coffee, it is a bit overwhelming and maybe a little more pricey for your average joe. The inside is bigger than it appears from outside and there is plenty of outdoor seating. The internet is fast which was a big plus.

I was expecting a little more than this place delivered. It was a decent cup of coffee but nothing truly memorable. The mocha also had a stronger cinnamon flavor than chocolate. I had gone out of my way to try this coffee shop and that is not something I would recommend.

Friendly staff; interesting selection of beverages. Busy but not overwhelmed, but traffic flow inside can be tight. Love seeing repurposed buildings (former Service Station) serving a new life. Would return when in the area.

This place would be great for reading or meeting a friend. There is decent seating inside and a lot of seating outside. I got their basic hot chocolate and it was delicious. My friend got one of the spicy hot chocolate drinks and it was awful--tasted like liquid fire with a hot chocolate consistency. The banana muffin was ok. Their... More

Great, relaxing coffee shop with excellent hot chocolate. I like the vibe, it's quiet, and the baristas are friendly. Parking is sometimes limited but worth a visit. Most people are usually working during the day.

Just relocated to Raleigh, but on one of my many visits to Raleigh-Durham, I discovered this place with my mate. We like the vibe. The cost is the same as a Starbucks, but with a more local/neighborhood joint flair. We now consider it one of our spots.
