“Great atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Met here for a few meetings or just to grab a bite to eat when I'm in the area. Sandwiches are great and soups are pretty good too. Great staff and didn't have to wait long even though the cafe was packed.

“Good solid restaurant and coffee spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

CC&B is solid, and reliable. It's a good place to get a coffee and muffin, or one of their many sandwiches. I reserve a VERY GOOD rating for the top of the line places.

“Friendly, Fast and Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

While staying nearby for an extended stay while my husband is being treated at UNC Medical Center for cancer, I have often found myself at Cafe Carolina. The food is great and REAL! The workers there are friendly and even realized that I'd been coming in a lot of late. The worker asked if I had a punch card which I didn't. She said, "I see you a lot in here" and punched a few extra punches for the lunches I had purchased previously. The decor is great, and so is the outdoor dining area. My favorite treat is the Apple Basket they have in the bakery! If you buy a lunch, you get the bakery item at a greatly reduced price. I've tried their pannini's, salads, soups, and flatbreads so far. The Broccoli soup is wonderful! I especially love that Cafe Carolina has several employees who might otherwise be turned away from other jobs because of their physical challenges. Kudos to you, Cafe Carolina! I'll be back soon.

“Solid cafe for food, friendliness and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012 via mobile

For breakfast or lunch the quality and price of this cafe is hard to beat! The chocolate croissant or eggs for breakfast are both great, lunches offer such a wide variety hard to decide!
