Love this little "coffee shop". I don't drink coffee but I do love the food!!!! The food is fresh, healthy and tastes good !!!! They have a very big sandwich menu to pick from and the food is made fresh to order. Take some cards/games and stay for a while as you enjoy the ambiance inside or if the weather... More

Wonderful, fresh brewed, fair trade coffee. Great service, excellent food and such a quaint and welcoming atmosphere! Love that they have started serving lite-fare on Friday/Saturday evenings. Can't wait to get something tasty and enjoy it on the back deck by the creek. Wish I had the chance to stop in here more often.

This is a great place to gather with friends for coffee, sit and read or work on your laptop, of have a nice lunch by the stream. Has a very laid back, coffee house aesthetic. Great outdoor area with shade under the trees and a nice setting by a large rushing stream.

Came for lunch and paid $10 for a panini sandwich. I wouldn't complain if that included a drink and chips, etc. Did get pretzels and fruit, but a baby Coke was $1.75. That's a rip. Won't be back anytime soon. Tough to pay Atlanta or Charlotte prices in Frog Level.

We loved the cool vibe of Panacea and the whole Frog Level area. Most of all, we really over the creekside patio that Panacea shares with Frog Level Brewing. All in all, a very good cup of coffee and pretty good sandwich in a really great atmosphere.

Relaxed atmosphere, perfect for a coffee house. The menu is varied, healthy and delicious. Coffee is also great, naturally. I stopped here as a treat and thoroughly enjoyed a sandwich with a paring of wonderful ingredients. It came with a nice bowl of fresh fruit. People seem put off by the area known as Frog Level, but please don't let... More

Found this little gem on the advice of an antique store owner...she was right on the money. Excellent grilled sandwiches and mango tea. The type of unique place that you just want to hang around in. If we are back in the area we will definitely go back to Panacea!
