Sweet Leaf Cafe is more than just a coffee shop, it is also a Mediterranean twist with some healthy food options. You can get a delicious wrap, salad, or some fresh pastries to go with a hot cup of Joe. This would be perfect for a lunch date during your lunch break at work, or someplace to head in between shopping trips in Fuquay Varina. There are so many great local Coffee Shops in the Triangle Area that I cannot possibly tell you all of them! Comment with your favorite and maybe we’ll feature it next!

The Matthews House is located in the Downtown Cary area and is the ultimate location for your Wedding or next Corporate Event in the Cary area. They are amazing at keeping local business cards there as well if you do not have a florist or photographer yet. Also, Cary High School has used them in the past to host their ROTC Military Ball.
In 1915, The Matthews House was built and has since been redecorated and renovated over the years in a Greek Renaissance Style. They offer a ballroom, spacious reception, large bridal suite, library and three bedrooms that are fully furnished. Call them up, or check out their website for more details!

This week is all about places to go to in Cary! We already mentioned the Cary Art Loop, which happens the last Friday of each month, today’s topic revolves around the Downtown Cary area. Ashworth Village is in the Heart of Downtown and has some interesting local businesses to check out. You can head over to Ashworth Drugs to pick up a prescription or stop at the soda fountain for something to eat. The Cary Arts Center at the head of Academy Street always has some form of classes or events going on to look into. Down the road a little ways is Chocolate Smiles, Studio 180 and now Raine Nail Boutique.
Yesterday we talked about the Cary Art Loop and Studio 180 is one of the participating venues that houses some beautiful local artwork! You can see work from a new artist featured through out the year, and it is also a wonderful place to get your hair done! What is your favorite shop in the Downtown Cary area? Make sure to let me know and I can add it to the list 🙂
On the last Friday of the month, the Town of Cary allows some shops to stay open late and have a tour come through to experience some beautiful artwork! In 2005, the Cary Art Loop was founded with the mission “To maintain a thriving Arts community through positive partnerships and exchanges between artists and Cary venues. We are committed to the esthetic enhancement of our community“. The main event so to speak is Final Fridays, which take place from 6pm to 9pm. August 29th will be the 9th Anniversary of the Cary Art Loop!!! There will be work from 20 different artists and the enhibit will run through September 23rd. If you are unable to make it to Final Friday, you can still go to the venues during regular hours to see the beautiful pieces of work.
