Just relocated to Raleigh, but on one of my many visits to Raleigh-Durham, I discovered this place with my mate. We like the vibe. The cost is the same as a Starbucks, but with a more local/neighborhood joint flair. We now consider it one of our spots.

Were it not for the wait time, this would have gotten four *'s.Mostly student-age crowd hanging out and working on their laptops. Its a converted service station, with funky decor, brick/ mismatched chairs, etc. Innovative to funky beverage selections. Limited cold choices, mostly hot coffees (straight up, latte-like, infused/combination ingredients), teas, and hot chocolates. Very limited pastry/food choices, none particularly... More

I've been here many times, and enjoyed it previously very much. This occasion, however, was not a pleasant experience. I arrived with the intention of getting a quick cup of coffee (to go) with my brother. I mentioned to two people standing in front of us in line that we were late to catch a train. They were very kind... More

Don't like the hipster flair of this place fool you, the coffee served here is set on to none. It is on the spendy side, but worth it. Their hot chocolatespots are amazing.

Awesome Coffee Shop. The atmosphere is awesome and the coffee was excellent! It has an old school feel. The service was great and everybody seems to enjoy this place since it was busy.

This is a quaint location with great indoor and outdoor seating. Lots of eclectic coffee options like their cayenne coffee. The coffee is smooth and excellent aroma. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable as well.

I SERIOUSLY LOVE THIS PLACE! Everything is delicious and the environment is so chill. I am that person who ALWAYS gets a latte and maybe a pastry and when I bring my friends, they seem to get the crazy but delicious things that I would have never thought of, like the Dr. Durham latte. Anytime I am nearby, I simply... More

The place is cozy with a very relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very fast and helpful. The decor is pretty unique and becomes part of the conversation right off the bat. They have pastries, coffee, and hot chocolate. I ordered the fruit and berry pastry to share and revisited that option. I ate it all and didn't share. It was... More

Cocoa cinnamon is a cozy place to get quality coffee, tea, and other drinks. Its also a great place to meet people and has large amounts of good seating. The chocolate cake is fabulous and healthy, but unfortunately rotated with other (still yummy) desserts and pastries. I would have given this place a five, but the workers do not seem... More
