In town for an event, I stopped here first to get a bite to eat and relax after the 90-minute drive. The place has a homey ambiance. Choose your space from tables (including hightops along the front window) or the couch. Friendly staff. Nice menu...including daily specials. The food hit the spot. Loved the Rosemary Potato soup!More

Tucked away on Main street in Charlotte's downtown is Evelyn Bays, and it is worth finding. Plenty of casual seating from tables to high tops, all surrounded by walls featuring the work of local artists. They have a wide choice of coffee, but my go...to is a Raspberry truffle espresso. It is an indulgence. They also make piping hot breakfast sandwiches, and the place is always filled with local patrons enjoying the coffee and the sense of Community they are sharing.More

My husband and I got a to-go order from Evelyn Bay Coffee. I got the Salmon sandwich and he got the Reuben and we both had the pasta salad, dill pickle and chips. Very good! Second time for both so you know we like it!!!

I look at Evelyn Bay as the best place for people come together in Charlotte for coffee, lunch, just to meet up, or hang out. The atmosphere is light and fun, and staff is very friendly and courteous. I can't imagine living in Charlotte without...this place.More

The Good: decent location, homemade baked goods, good service, roomy The Bad: only good coffee, no knockouts This is a nice downtown, hometown coffee joint. Its a few minutes from the highway but close to a main road. The is plenty of on street parking....The exterior is nice but the signage is small. The interior is roomy and decorated in coffee shop modern. My service was quick and correct. There was a wide variety of fresh baked goods including the Texas cowboy which is a ranger cookie with chocolate chips. My coffee was good but the syrup tasted cheap. The Road Word: its worth a 20 mile drive for a nice cookie and cup of Joe.More

If you're in Charlotte and you want good coffee this is the place! Great coffee, great atmosphere, this is the place people who love coffee in Charlotte or the surrounding area go. Stay away from Bigby, you can get that anywhere, live a little.

We used to come here quite often about 3 years or so ago. We liked their lunch. But sadly they don't offer as many options as they used to when it comes to lunch items. We love the nice relaxed atmosphere and all the local...artwork that they have hanging on their walls.More

Don't go to Bigby, this is the coffee you are looking for. Cool area on the inside - atmosphere matches the local flavor.

We selected Evelyn Bay Coffee Shop solely on other Trip Advisor reviews & were not disappointed (We were in Charlotte for a funeral). Judy provided friendly, helpful service -- & prepared a very veggie-filled Veggie Wrap, which was delicious! The Grilled Cheese Panini was also...good. My husband & I met friends for lunch here & were able to enjoy a leisurely lunch while visiting. The restaurant is spacious and features local art work.More

Evelyn Bay has great coffee, i have never had an over drawn shot or bitter brew there. Always say "yes" to the whipped cream. It's the real stuff in a pastry bag. The soups and pannini are all wonderful.
