I would rank this to be the best indy/cool place in Durham for a cappuccino. Quality is not 100%consistent, sometime coffee is too hot or too cold, too much change of the staff. Joe van Gogh has the better quality and taste, but this place...More

My boyfriend and I thought we'd give this a try on Saturday and wished we had gone to Starbucks like normal. It's more expensive and the cups are smaller. It didn't even taste good. The seating arrangement is kind of weird inside, they also offer...More

This place is cute and cozy, and the coffee is pretty great. Service is sometimes slow or uninviting, but a long line or crowded entryway is worth the espresso and a fresh-made pastry. Love coming here when the weather is nice and there is more...More

Coffee was decent (decaf mocha latte), croissant was good. Then there was the service. Not very friendly, when I asked for butter for the croissant I was told that they didn't have butter there since they don't make the pastries & I could heat it...More

Damn I hate it when the counter service person anywhere turns the POS screen around expecting to have a tip enyered. To me counter service is 'no tip' country. The venue and the products were good.

Best coffee I've ever had -- silky, smooth, with scrumptious combinations I never dreamed possible. And the affogato (espresso/gelato combo) is to die for!!! Will definitely go back many times next time I visit Durham.

Was a great place for a date with my wife to enjoy extremely good coffee and share a desert. The out side seating area was very clean and made for a great place to sit at night to enjoy our coffee.

Got a cold brew with some cinnamon, cumin mix and it was very tasty. Also got a pastry that had strawberry and cream; also tasty. Lots of seating inside and out. I sat outside but I wasn't feeling like it was "my scene"....I'm probably just...More
