Coffee is important no matter where you go. So when I moved to Greensboro, North Carolina for college it was hard to say goodbye to my hometown coffee shop. But The 'Boro has its fair share of awesome go-to coffee spots as well! Here are my top 5 coffee shops in Greensboro, NC!
1. Tate Street Coffee House
Located on Tate Street (duh), TSCH is probably my all-time favorite coffee place in Greensboro. It is right next to UNCG where I go to school so it is a popular place for a lot of students. Not only is their coffee good, but they have a great food menu as well and it's not just breakfast foods! The atmosphere is awesome and sometimes there is even live music! If you're ever near Tate Street, I highly recommend a 16oz. iced Black & Tan!
2. Common Grounds
A little farther away from the university but only about a 15-minute walk from my apartment (yes, it is dangerously close), you'll find Common Grounds on Brice Steet. Common grounds is one of my favorite places to go do homework or read a book because although people know and love it there, it always feels quiet and cozy. One really neat thing about Common Grounds is that they also serve beer and wine so they stay open until 11:00 pm! All of their specialty made coffees are named after famous actors and actresses-I suggest the Marlon Brando, it's my fav!
3. The Baker & The Bean
Just a couple of blocks down from UNCG there's another great coffee shop on Spring Garden Street called The Baker & The Bean. With great coffee and even better pastries and desserts, The Baker & The Bean is one of the best places to go on a first date or to catch up with an old friend!
4. Geeksboro Coffeehouse Cinema
Geeksboro is located in the heart of Greensboro. A super artsy hangout with great coffee! Like Common Grounds, they also sell craft beer! A neat thing about Geeksboro is that they show really cool indie films and documentaries! This is definitely a place to go to hang out or spend a rainy day.
5. Cresent Coffee House
Not too far from UNCG's campus, you'll find Cresent Coffee! A cute little coffee house with delicious coffee and desserts. My favorite thing about Cresent is that they know how to make a frozen coffee! Not many places can do this (Starbucks being the absolute worst at it) but Cresent pulls it off and it tastes like your drinking a coffee milkshake! Highly Recommend!
