Great cafe!

Posted on 03 / 12 / 2013

Love this place. It is downtown so parking can be tedious but worth it! This is a great not-so hole-in-the-wall cafe. Friendly fun staff. Offers soy AND almond milk, which is practically unheard of in Greensboro! Sometimes the vegan goodies can run low but when they're so delicious they go fast!!! Vegan carrot cake is awesome! Fun activities differetn nights of the week. And you can get beer and wine if the mood suits you! Great place to chill and hang.

Pros: Vegan selection, friendly staff, fun mood/atmosphere

Fair Trade and Live Music

Posted on 05 / 23 / 2012

This place has soy options and usually a few vegan goodies. Also, the coffee is fair trade and they have live music on Saturday nights. Fun, hip, downtown place to go.

Pros: Fair Trade Coffee, Soy option for Latte, Live Music
Cons: limited vegan food options

My favorite coffee shop in Greensboro

Posted on 11 / 20 / 2011

This cafe has a great vibe- the staff is super friendly and knowledgeable about the vegan diet. There's always a few types of vegan sweets (cookies, carrot cake, etc..) that taste pretty awesome. I'm a fan of the peanut butter oatmeal cookie. The baristas make designs on your latte and always offer good suggestions if you can't make up your mind. They have vegan cream cheese for your bagel too. What I really enjoy about this place is that there's a bunch of options on the menu that are vegan, the cafe is clean and is usually playing great music, and there's a bunch of seating so it never feels too crowded.

Pros: Vegan Sweets, Friendly Staff, Good Value
Cons: Parking
