Crema is a place where you order from a somewhat limited sandwich board and eat at one of the tables. Sandwiches are good but nothing special.

Many combinations to be had here. Just pick Chocolate or Vanilla soft serve as your base and then add in up to three mix-ins. I had chocolate with raspberry, blueberries and cookie dough. They pretty much blend it all in together for you to create your own personal ice cream flavor. It hit the spot.

I ordered chocolate mint chip and they created it with a vanilla base (my choice) and chocolate chips and mint chips. Excellent Five of us ordered different dishes and all were quite pleased.

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....

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
