Located on the Glenwood Avenue, Glenwood Coffee & Books has evolved from a modest bookstore to a community creative space and a coffee shop. The success of any independent venture depends on the people behind it.

Today, this concept coffee shop and bookstore, is a well-known spot among locals who enjoy the organic coffee served and the plethora of books sold here. This cafe is vegan-friendly and also serves beer and pizzas. Concerts, meetings of community organizations, book launches and several other events held here, creates a vibrant buzz in the ambiance of this unique store. Call ahead to know more.

Carolina Blues Coffee and Bagels is what happens when you combine coffee and sweets with a little Southern Hospitality.

Though it's not mentioned on the giant sign out front, Yum-Yum is known for serving the best dogs in town. Sandwiched between a perfectly steamed bun, the pink hot dog can be slathered in your choice of condiments, though the most popular combination would be chili, coleslaw, mustard and fresh onions. Like the sign advertises, visitors should pair their dog with a Cheerwine soda (cherry soda) and finish off the meal with a milkshake or a scoop of homemade ice cream, which the locals rave about. The stand has existed for decades, and is popular with the locals and the University of North Carolina students. Don't let the long lines daunt you - the service is quick and the food is cheap.
