Lilli is amazing! Every handcrafted coffee has been spot on! Her handmade baklava is even more amazing. I go whenever I can to get a superbly made espresso drink and a little slice of heaven.

Did not have the desserts that we saw in a magazine ... But it probably was good for coffee ... I did not get that ...

Great variety of coffees.

Sweet little coffee shop with unique flavors! Service was great and even let me taste before I paid to make sure it was to my liking! I had the pistachio mocha latte and it was great!

Awesome coffee place with unique flavors! I got a pistachio mocha iced latte and it was great! Service was very sweet and even let me taste it to make sure it was to my liking before I paid.

The loveliest lady running the coffee shop. She wanted nothing more then for her customers to enjoy their entire experience. She gave my siblings and I a little lemon pie for free while we were waiting. Coffee was delicious, different syrups than you would get from your average coffee shop. The beautiful writing she puts on top of the drinks is just the icing on the cake!

This is my go to place when I want a real cup of coffee. Other flavors are available as well. And the prices are reasonable too.

Very small and very dark. A great place for a respite with a cup of coffee...as long as nobody else is there.

Just prior to departing after a quick trip to Greensboro, we found this little gem, met the wonderful proprietor and had some great coffee. Whenever I’m in the right place sone cool coincidences happen. That happened here in multiples. The atmosphere is genuine and imperfect which gives it a more exotic or family feel. Definitely a long way from corporate, mainstream Starbucks and their competitors.

Discovered this place during a weekend stay in Greensboro. Coffee is as good as I've ever had (I drink a quad espresso with a bit of steamed milk). Lily, the proprietor, is an absolute delight. Go get a coffee, some baklava, and meet her. You will love the coffee and the experience. And you will thank me. (PS Best. Baklava. Ever.)

Friendly barista and great drinks

This cafe is a real hidden gem. They have delicious pastries and even more delicious coffee. The owner made me feel at home and I felt at ease inside this little treasure. I hope to visit again very soon.

My friend and I have been on the search for a perfect coffee shop in Greensboro and I think we hit the jackpot with this one! As soon as we walked through the doors into the quaint, small, mahogany walled storefront- we were greeted with a smile! There are many options presented, whether it is coffee, knick-knacks or even food. My friend had a baklava and said it was rich, full of flavor and the perfect size. We both got an iced vanilla latte and noticed two flavors were mixed (which I think is the trick)! The lattes taste like coffee and the flavor compared to other shops that taste of just milk and ice. We highly recommend!!!

Every time I have been in here I have gotten some of the best coffee I’ve ever had and a personal touch on each one. Attention to the little things!

Great coffee and service. We love this place!

I've been coming to Greensboro for work almost 2 years and finally stopped at this little cafe across the street today and all I can say is "why did I not discover you sooner?" Excellent vanilla latte!

Not sure all the hype on this place. I was looking for a coffee joint near my office and stopped in here as it is very close. Maybe I'm just a snobby "bespoke" coffee drinker but the coffee that I got was not very good. The coffee from Great coffee shops is far better tasting than I can make at home. This was not it. My black coffee was very acidic and tasted like it came out of a Folgers pot. I tried to taste it several more times but it kept getting worse. The only non dairy milk that they have is soy. When I went to pay for my coffee the (who I'm guessing was the owner) seemed very agitated that I didn't have cash to pay...and they add a $.25 charge for credit card.... Really?? What is this 1995? Note to the lady working, no one carries cash anymore. Time to move to 2018.

Great little stop on my way to work. I grab my latte, sometimes a sweet, and finish my walk. The service is wonderful. Good food. Worthy of a try.

Amanda Davis

Nice customer service, good coffee, bring cash - they’re a small, locally-owned shop, they’ll appreciate it.

Donna Previtte

A cute older couple operates this store. The coffee is absolutely delicious and they even put a fancy design on my coffee!

Brittany Daves

The coffee is delicious, very comfortable place.. the cutest sweetest lady works there so friendly makes you feel right at home.

This is one of my favorite spots. I travel to Gboro once a year and never miss the chance to stop by. Such a short walk from the Marriott. Quaint, lovely little coffee shop. People are very nice. Has tasty treats too and I'm looking forward to trying whole bean local Moka Java Blend that was available for purchase as well. I'm almost always a straight-laced, black coffee drinker. All the options are here, but I stayed with old faithful. Enjoyed my cup there with comfortable seating getting a little work done after this essay about one of my favorite coffee stops. If you enjoy local flavor, this is a great place for you.

Excellent service and superior drink! What a great place. Go here. order a drink. Give them money. And smile a lot.

Perfectly smooth coffee! We are very picky about our judgement of a Latte & this place wins a gold. Even though it's in downtown of the city, it's super easy to get to & quick to get back to the highway. Parking is literally attached; garage entrance just to left of Café. We were barely 20 minutes to get takeout (& chat with lovable shopkeeper) and parking was free.Small selection of sweets looked good & they have some salty snacks too - didn't get any this time.DEFINITELY will be our go-to place when in the area, even if a little out of the way.

A wonderful, warm & friendly coffee shop in downtown G'boro. It's tiny and tucked in a parking garage building so you can miss it walking down Elm, but you should really keep an eye out for it and stop by for great coffee in a welcoming little shop.

I love this spot. The atmosphere is quiet, the coffee is delicious. You can tell that it is the same people who come in here every morning. They are greeted by a sweet toned lady. I always forget how outstanding the coffee tastes here. The only downfall is that you need to bring cash,l. The owner prefers it since it's such a small spot. The atmosphere and the coffee is completely worth it. It feels like you're in someone's home getting a cup of coffee. Great place to get away and hide from other people.

SMASHING! The best drink I've ever gotten in my life. No, I'm not exaggerating, I've worked at 4 different cafes and coffee bars, and this is the smoothest brew I've ever been handed. It was beautiful, a masterpiece, I wish we had one in Raleigh. I got a hot chocolate with a shot of espresso [yes I know that's close to a mocha, but I like the vanilla shops add to hot chocolates], and my boyfriend got a latte. Very kind and FAST owner, fastest coffee I've ever ordered, she's amazing. I think paying in cash is better for the store though, I think she gets charged for card transactions.

Cute little coffee shop in downtown Greensboro. You'll get excellent service from some of the most friendliest people. Cozy with a nice view of Elm Street. Coffee is just as good if not better than Starbucks. I recommend stopping in and taking a seat for a few.

Great coffee... lots of choices. Good atmosphere and service. Stop in if you are in the area.

It is a Saturday around 11:20AM and the place is empty. Jazz music is playing and a nice Albanian lady is sitting at a coffee table playing on a laptop and messing around with her phone. The shop is charming. She gets up and asks us what we would like. We ordered a strawberry smoothie and a latte while we waited on some friends. There is a Yelp Loves You card on the counter and a sly $0.25 charge for anyone using a debit or credit card. The woman is chatting a little and asking my wife if she would like more espresso. She finished by doing a small clover leaf with dark chocolate in my wife's latte. All-in-all a relaxing morning so far and this shop is charming! My smoothie is delicious.

Oh man, I had gone to the competition a few blocks down and was always underwhelmed. Heard about this little place and it's even closer to work! Strolled in today for a simple coffee and ended up with a 20oz expresso, a bag of local coffee, a pen and a fantastic experience. I will most certainly be back. So simple, so quaint, so relaxed. The owner barista is incredibly sweet. She let me try a shot of the expresso as she made my drink. No acidity, very smooth. For the experience, the quality/taste of the coffee, it being local, it being fresh, her prices are incredibly reasonable.

A cozy, warm shop with a very charming lady behind the counter. It takes me to Europe with a graceful ambiance. The coffee is excellent and I am picky.

Was waiting on my little ballerina to finish her NutCracker Ballet practice and took a little walk to get some coffee. I got an Eggnog Latte and it was delicious. I also tried the Baklava and it was truly heavenly! I took it to go and sat in the park across the street. It was a nice afternoon!
