This neighborhood coffee shop, stationed in the outskirts of Plaza-Midwood, has served as a local caffeine-haven since 2009. The corner shop has a modern-industrial feel, with exposed piping, towering windows, and a wood-paneled espresso bar. Serving beans from Joe Van Gogh, a Hillsbourough artisan roasting company, this quiet, trendy locale is a particular favorite amongst laptop-wielding freelancers, looking for a space that is equal parts hospitable and productivity-friendly (with free wi-fi). That's not to say, however, that the café is not home to a number of locals catching up over spicy mochas or finely-crafted cappuccinos, paired with some of Central Coffee's fresh house-baked pastries (try the espresso chocolate cake). A quality option for take-out or sit down morning fare, this spot has games and art supplies for children, long couches for lounging, and secluded tables for coffee-charged customers, hard at work.
