As I sit in the newest coffee shop to grace the streets of downtown Raleigh, here’s what I see:
A dog grinning from the outside as her ‘person’ orders inside. A long, hand carved wooden bench running along the front window—then it meets a word blurb decal, blown up to fit the large glass panel. A crowd just filtered in (as their morning coffee wears off?)…
I see Tyler from Happy + Hale and he tells me their salads will be an item at the cafe once the full menu is up and running (soon). Tyler also offers me the latest news on Happy + Hale’s opening at City Plaza—you can expect quick, healthy meals for under $10 along with their amazing juices, an outdoor seating area, and borrow-able picnic blankets for enjoying the green space across the way (you may have seen yoga there or ice skating).
Cafe de los Muertos opened today, and so far I like it a lot. The vibe is fun and relaxed. I’ve seen gray hair, pony tails, hipster flips, and buns. I like that it doesn’t seem to matter to anyone what I’m wearing or doing.
