“Day or night, a great place to have a drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2011

We go by Cru every time we visit Beaufort. The coffee bar side has friendly baristas serving up yummy coffee and chocolate drinks with a wide variety of breads and pastries to accompany them. The wine shop side is an inviting place to browse - we only wish they had the room for a little more selection on their shelves.

“Wine...Coffee..and food! What more could you want?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2011

I went to Cru Wine Bar & Coffee Shop during our yearly beach trip to Atlantic Beach. We have always enjoyed touring around Beaufort and decided to try out a new place this year! We went for dinner and enjoyed a variety of food including tuna/chicken salad sandwiches, taco soup, quesadillas and pizza. All were delicious.

I loved the atmosphere of the place- It reminded me of a place that would be on the square in Gilmore Girls (If you've ever seen it!)- that quaint, cozy, local feel. Like we were in Luke's Diner on a late night :) Our bartender/waitress was very friendly and informative about our options as well!

On top of the great feel, CRU has a wide variety of options for everyone. If you are looking for breakfast, stop in for a bagel and a coffee. Need some lunch? Try one of their great sandwiches and a sweet tea. How bout late night? Grab drinks at the bar or choose from the wide selection of wine! All in one place you get a coffee shop, cafe, wine store and bar- amazing combination :)

“Nice Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

I first visited cru in September and loved the place. Its half coffee shop and bakery half wine store and bar. I had one of their chocolate chip cookies which are made from scratch everyday, and it was AMAZING! Definitely gave grandma's recipe a run for its money. The wine bar side has a great ambiance! Very relaxed setting, great for seeing local music.
