You are not our customer. You are our cherished guest!
Our coffee, teas, vegetarian meals, kava, smoothies, hot chocolates and chais, beers, and wines are mostly organic and our pastries from local bakers (some vegan, raw, gluten-free and organic from The Vegan Lover in Durham and Luna’s Living Kitchen in Charlotte and Raleigh) are incredible and made with the finest natural ingredients.
Kava, a wondrous plant called “the root of happiness,” produces tranquility and relaxation without the side effects of alcohol. For centuries, it has been used in the South Pacific Islands, medicinally, ceremonially, and recreationally. Kava calms as well as focuses the mind and is often consumed for a peaceful ending to the day. The best effect of kava is simply the sociability as it makes you feel more comfortable and more talkative. Unlike some kava drinks, our Kona Kava is a good-tasting powder mix that comes is cocoa, banana/vanilla and tropical flavors and is mixed with coconut or almond milk with a dolop of whip cream. We also carry kava paste, extract, and single-serving take-home packs. Avoid if breastfeeding or pregnant.
We have now added vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free meal options to our menu.
