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!

All the beans that are used are actually roasted and selected by the owner’s brother!

You can get all the classic coffee and expresso drinks, or try something new from who ever is behind the counter! Please stop by and try something new, as well as help out a local business.

One weakness of many in the mornings is a good cup of coffee! I have highlighted Bed and Breakfast locations, Parks, etc. in the past, but I think this might be the most important week!
Thanks A Latte is such a cute name, that it stood out right away to me. It is a Coffee and Gift Boutique, featuring Larry’s Beans drip coffee and gifts from Capri Blue and Mudpie. If you are looking for a new place to stop before your work day, or just a place to meet a friend during your lunch break, try Thanks A Latte!
