Only thing I had was the ice cream but it was so good! I had no idea the coffee shop did this. So you pick an ice cream: chocolate or vanilla, then pick three toppings: I picked pineapple, mango, banana, then choose whether you want it all in a cup or waffle cone. Then they mix it all together in... More

This is basically a coffee stand in the lobby of drab office building. Not sure why it's listed as an attraction in Raleigh.

I'm not much of a coffee drinker, however do love a good hot chocolate in the wintertime. I have frequented this place on occasion and their hot chocolate is tasty. I would say Royal Bean on Hillsborough St has a better taste, however if downtown and looking for a hot chocolate, this will serve its purpose.

Stopped by in a pinch (Carolina bakery is closed on Sat!!!) And found a gem. Had two little ones with us and everyone loved the sandwiches. I had Reuban n hot, melty cheese and my sister had chicken salad on croissant. Both were excellent and good portion. Stayed for ice cream.... And would come back for both! Cute, funky place.... More

I went for Ice cream and sandwiches. The ice cream was very tasty and a great variety of choices. The place smells wonderful, you can tell they serve coffee! Sandwiches were great too, a bit expensive but being that not many restaurant places are open in the weekend in that area, I can understand they want to make a good... More

A coffee, smoothies, sandwich cafe. On the street right down from Union/Capitol Square so real convenient to that location. Their chicken salad had nuts so I got the BLT. It was fine, not too messy, served with choice of chips or cucumber salad. I took the latter and it was a nice surprise. They also have wine. He suggested I... More

I'm not a coffee drinker, and I am convinced I never will be. There are signs in the establishment itself claiming that this is one of the best locations of roasting coffee beans in the triangle. Or something of the like. I don't know if this is true, I can't really attest to that. This little cafe has a great... More

Best ice cream ever. Wide selection of flavors (37) and you can combine any of them to make your own! Iced coffee, ice cream, sweet treat.
