    The iced coffee was delicious. Best I've ever had and the staff was great! Loved the vibe of the place. Wish I could be there everyday but sadly I live in MN.

    Such a fantastic place! Great coffee, some of the nicest staff, a huge space, and some fun quirks like a candy bar and spicy chocolate coffee. This place is quintessential Durham and I love it.

    The staff and atmosphere make up for the lackluster chai

    Awesome tea. The whole experience of choosing the leaves and brewing to perfection was great. bagel sandwich was really difficult to eat.

    Wonderful spot for morning coffee, quick biz meeting, or just to chill out. Ome of the very best coffee shops I've been to.

    Iced coffee on a hot day....the best

    Mike Gentry · June 29, 2014

    avoid the chocolate habanero coffee. this spicy devil will get its hooks in you and you won't be able to start the day without it. growlers of the iced version are now a must-have

    Try everything... but not all on the same visit!

    Kevin Primus · January 11, 2014

    Lots of good things here! They make great smoothies and the coffees of the day are always delicious. My personal favorite is the chocolate raspberry muffin which they usually have on the weekends!

    Pumpkin spice latte is the best everrrrrrrrr

    Moms bring there kids here=lots of noise. Some groups hold meetings here and take the tables. Definitely not a place to come get work done and relax like any other shop. Still has a great vibe tho.

    Great cup of joe

    Michael Spears · September 30, 2013

    Coffee and staff are great, awesome food. Seating is blocky, uncomfortable, and music is unfamiliar and annoying. If changed music, added couches, would be much much better

    They carry delicious donuts-cinnamon sugar and chocolate were both surprisingly moist. Coffee is always great. Love the butter flavored. Get a bag to go!

    Katie Turner · April 28, 2013
  • Amanda H.

    Best coffee I've ever had. I promise that anything you get will be delicious. If you're looking for something a little different try the Chocolate Habanero iced coffee!

    Pumpkin Spice can't go wrong!


    I love this Bean Traders’ mint hot chocolate; it’s not too minty, and it’s got a subtle chocolate flavor that is just right for warming this gal up on a cold wintry day. Read more · August 20, 2012

    Friendliest staff in Durham! I always feel welcome!

  • Tim B.

    Spice it up a bit and try the Iced Chocolate Habanero while it's still on special.

    Dave says "I'm actually descended from a long line of octopus" commenting on his ability to serve up his most delicious coffee creations. Watch him and you'll agree.

  • Karina C.

    This is, by far, the best coffee shop within a 40 mile radius. The coffee is amazing and staff are welcoming. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Definitely try a chai or green tea latte

    Karina Chandler · June 9, 2012

    Waffle Sundays!

    Chillax on the bus and then show your Regional Day Pass at the counter to get $1 off your beverage or 1/2 off if you bring your own mug. Read more
