What our customers say

Since 1991, Cup a Joe has been the go-to spot for coffee lovers in Raleigh and beyond. Don’t just take our word for it, though. Hear it straight from our customers who have been raving about us for decades.
coffee is delicious and affordable (they have daily specials) and employees are super nice! Nice place to study with outlets, lots of tables and seating, or just to hang out with friends 🙂
