Cozy and Clean Coffee Shop with Delicious Fare! - Edit

This is quickly becoming my favorite coffee shop in the triangle. The shop is kept very clean and they have a friendly staff. The vegan offerings for milk are exceptional. It is not every day that I can find soy, almond, coconut, and macadamia nut milk for my coffee drinks. And if I want a special coffee drink, the syrups are vegan too! Hello, mocha drinks! They also have coconut whip cream.

The vegan and gluten free sweets are amazing. I tried an English muffin that was out of this world delicious! They also have cupcakes, bagels, brownies, candy, etc. One will not go hungry after a stop here.

My only complaint is that I'd like a shop closer to my house so I can go more frequently. ;-)

Pros: Clean atmosphere, Awesome selctions, vegan/gf sweets

Cons: They aren't in Durham

Great vegan pastries! - Edit

Coco Bean has delicious vegan savory and sweet pastries. The chickpea tartini was incredibly rich and "buttery". They have so many nondairy milks to choose from. I got a PB hot chocolate made with macadamia milk. So delicious!

Vegan goodies galore! - Edit

This is a vegetarian coffee shop with an all vegan selection of baked goods and ice cream. Baked goods are not made in house, but come from several local bakeries with vegan options like Dee's and JP's. There is ample room to hang out and use the free WiFi while snack ng on vegan goodies. The coffee is good too and nut milk choices are plentiful!

Pros: All vegan baked goods, macadamia nut milk, vegan ice cream

Cons: would love if they had kitchen and served hot vega

expansion - Edit

As of May 2017, they expanded into the space next door so now there is more table space and they are offering more food options (all vegan!) including locally-made ice cream from Sweet Hazel's. I love their wide selection of non-dairy milks and they have the best selection of vegan pastries.

This is basically and entire vegan coffee shop and bakery that also happens to have cows milk on hand for those who want it in their coffee!!! THE ENTIRE OFFERING OF BAKED GOODS is vegan!!!! And a huge number of them are gluten free as well. I had a delicious coffee and a cranberry walnut hand pie which was fantastic. I also got a chickpea pastry to go which I had later that evening and completely filled me up.
I'll definitely be back!
