Beary good coffee

Today we went to the BEST coffee shop! Actually, it is our first ever PERFECT SCORE!!!

Sleepy bear coffee, as soon as we heard the name we knew we had come across a winner! This is truly a hidden gem that absolutely everyone needs to check out, especially every parent!!! It is a family owned business.  We had the pleasure of meeting the owners daughter today. The whole family works together at this business. Everyone is so sweet and welcoming. They went above and beyond to make our experience wonderful in every way, shape and form. They have over 50 scrumptious drink flavors. Feeling healthy? They have fresh smoothies and soothing herbals tea as well. Momma bean choose an iced latte with peanut butter and banana,  it is definitely my new favorite, the best drink I’ve ever had. Poppa bean had a hazelnut coffee and he said it was the best he ever had too! As you know he is very picky.  It is very reasonably priced.  Which I will go into more later about what they offer the kids! This place is simply perfect in every way. We couldn’t think of a complaint if we had to.

As we entered we were greeted by these friendly bears outside. Big hit with the kids!

Pick your treat, then pick your room. There is the main room with a nice big flat screen TV and comfy couches, nice big windows, and a beautiful fireplace. Even enjoy conversation with the very sweet and knowledgeable barista.

They have a great little selection of local,  jams, honey, etc. Your kids will enjoy finding these stuffed animals throughout the place.

This is the Forest Room. It’s a nice, quiet, private room open for meetings, groups, or any gathering you would like. There is a nice big flat screen TV in this room for your entertainment as well.

Jumping bean

Today we went to THE BEST coffee shop for parents! Its the most brilliant idea for a coffee shop. The cute name matches its cute and quirky style. Im talking about a lovely place called, “Cartwheels and coffee.” While the parents sit back and relax the kids can play on an assortment of toys. There is a kitchen, a stage with costumes, trains, basketball, ride on toys, a trampoline, rock wall and slide and more. The owner is the pastor of the church next door, the Byrd theatre. He is a very nice and genuine guy. The staff is always very friendly, bubbly, and quick with anything you need. There is a minimal fee for kids and you can play all day. All and all, its a wonderful place in a fun location on Cary st. So be sure to check it out if you are in the area. Lets cartwheel our way onto the scores…

(By the way this was the blog for 5/7 but my phone was acting up and it wouldnt post so this is yesterday’s blog, you can look foward to another one coming later today)

Disappearing bean

There once was a coffee shop called Harbour coffee. We tried to go there to enjoy and review it numorous times. Everytime we went, regardless of the day or time, they were closed. There hours were super inconvenient and inconsistent. They had a printed paper on the door so they could continually change hours. They only opened a couple random hours, a couple random days. The closest we ever got to going in was once when the open sign was on, there were people inside and when i parked, got my kids out in the rain and made it to the door, they literally locked it in our face, mouthed “were closed” and shooed us away. We always wondered how they stayed in business,  well now we know, they didnt.

RIP Harbour coffee!
