Popped in for a large coffee on a Saturday morning. Great coffee, nice place to sit inside or outside. bathrooms, some water, and easy going staff. The quality of the coffee and care that went into making the drinks is what makes it great.

Good choices for coffees, good service and a nice place to sit and enjoy a coffee in Asheville. Try to sit outside on the sidewalk tables and watch Asheville pass by.

World coffee has locally ground coffees that are eco-friendly and some local bakery goodies. There's a skybar on the roof in the evening if you'd like something stronger than coffee. The balcony is actually heated. Great location downtown.
