But they also have coffee - espresso, lattes, ... And a quite large menu of flat breads, paninis, sandwiches and more. Fresh, made to order. Many people think of this as a coffee house with snacks - it really is a rather nice lunch place...More

Seriously I have been dreaming of my next visit. I got the ham and cheese croissant toasted with amazing honey mustard and my daughter got the toasted turkey on sourdough with spicy mayo. We argued about who's was better! Will be going back soon!

I've eaten at Cafe Carolina locations in Chapel Hill and Cary, and was meeting someone here for professional reasons. Think of it as a Panera -- soups, salads, sandwiches and baked good. Their cupcake with blue frosting is apparently their signature dessert. Free WiFi is...More
