Fast service, good prices, but most of all, good coffee. Free wifi, good customer service, and fast service! I was in and out in 5 minutes.

This place would be great for reading or meeting a friend. There is decent seating inside and a lot of seating outside. I got their basic hot chocolate and it was delicious. My friend got one of the spicy hot chocolate drinks and it was awful--tasted like liquid fire with a hot chocolate consistency. The banana muffin was ok. Their... More

Great, relaxing coffee shop with excellent hot chocolate. I like the vibe, it's quiet, and the baristas are friendly. Parking is sometimes limited but worth a visit. Most people are usually working during the day.

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.

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.
