    Good food, but overrun by freelancers and students who order one drink and work for hours on their laptops, exhausting their free refills. Good luck getting a table if you actually want to have lunch. -- Bob Nocek via Foursquare

    Coffee's good, decor's good, vibe's good. I predict this will be the next hip spot where the beautiful people hang out. -- brandon hoe via Foursquare

    This isn't actually a Starbucks; they just sell Starbucks products. The difference being, you cannot use a Starbucks gift card here. -- William Weddendorf via Foursquare

    Get the guacatillo at the salsa bar. (Heard a guy come in and order, "a pint of guacatillo and a straw... just kidding... kinda." It's good.) -- Sonja Foust via Foursquare

    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. -- ThePurplePassport.com via Foursquare

    Delicious local coffee, pimento cheese sand whiz is huge and tasty! Breakfast biscuits are one of a kind. -- Nick DiColandrea via Foursquare

    Try the Al Mokha: a semisweet spin on the standard, thanks to its real melted dark chocolate and Sri Lankan cinnamon topping, the latter a nod to the port as a trade stop in the spice trade route. -- The News & Observer via Foursquare

    I'm there almost every Sunday for breakfast. Good quiche, good eggs florentine. Good service, reasonable wait time for food, given how crowded it can be there. They take reservations. -- Lee Raymond via Foursquare
