I used to be an avid Starbucks fan. In fact it was nothing for me to go twice a day. One of my coworkers told me about Central Coffee and I am addicted! The taste is smoother, the espresso is stronger and you don't get the shaky sugar-buzz that you do with Starbucks. (Not to mention the friendly staff and the yummy pastries!)
Love this place!
Central coffee is a wonderful place for a cup. The Plaza/MIdwood/Elizabeth area has needed this shop for a while. A place that you can just as easily meet a business client, or take a few minutes away from your daily grind to have coffee by the fire. Whether its a large brewed (Several blends daily) or one of their specialty espresso drinks, you wont be disappointed, I never have. Don't let the lot being full keep you from stopping in, there is plenty of on street parking on Louise.
I recommend the shorty and a piece or two of baklava.
REAL COFFEE. The barista remembered my name the next time I came in. Warm fireplace for cold weather days, and freshly baked goods daily. Espresso drinks are a bargain compared to the 7th St chain joint. Owner is Charlotte native, making it a truly local place.
