There's no review of Helios here?! What the?! Well, this place has been my home away from home since I moved here three years ago. Even though it's WiFi can be a little dodgy, it's a great atmosphere to work in during the day, and the staff here are a great bunch of people. The food has always been great, but they've just gotten in a real chef and sous chef (formerly of Coquette in North Hills), and they've populated the menu with lots of little delightful tapas-y things. I was VERY worried about changes, since this really is my favorite place to go, but everything I've tried has been amazing. And the coffee is as good as ever. Lots of drink specials during the week. Beer taps were added maybe a year ago. The place has grown and changed a lot over the time I've been here, but it always works. The patio is great, too, and they've even got plugs out there for laptops. Lots of places have opened and closed in Raleigh since I've arrived, but Helios has remained a wonderful constant in my Raleigh life. Thanks to Ian (manager) and Grey for keeping it all running just the way I like!
FSYC is great. Lori runs a wonderful place with excellent teachers.
If you've never been to Wine Authorities, get there ASAP. What are you waiting for? The best wine shop in the world. No kidding. Seth and Craig know their wine.
All of the stylists are exceptional, but I have to say that I miss the receptionist with the mohawk.
My child has been at Gingerbread LittleVersity for 3 years. Today I walked in and his teacher asked if I had a minute. Ms. Susan wanted to discuss her observations of my child with me personally. This usually happens in public school but not in a preschool setting. She went into detail about my child's adjustment to the classroom since moving up from the 2 year room three weeks ago, what he excelled at and some areas that we would work on together at home and in the classroom. To know that a teacher knows my child that well makes me feel completely confident leaving him so I may go to work everyday. Gingerbread ROCKS!
Reel Green Lawn Care is the practically the only "eco-friendly" lawn care business in Wake Count. Courtland provided great information about how to best take care of my lawn and his pricing was VERY competitive to my past lawn service. He was able to work around my schedule, which was convenient and was super quick (and quiet I might add.) I'd recommend Reel Green to anyone looking to change their lifestyle and "go green".
Try the double chocolate or the butter pecan.
My favorite BBQ in the area. It's eastern NC style -- full of vinegar. The wide selection of homemade pies is also fantastic (though I rarely have room left for dessert). The hushpuppies aren't as good as at Bullock's, but I really like the Brunswick stew.
Best selections, great staff. Hang out with a glass of wine and a cheese plate, or a press pot and a baguette -- or buy and take home.
Great decor, great shakes. Expensive. Why would anyone have redecorated this place?
Phydeaux's new location is spacious and pleasant. Lots of high end pet gear and treats, but the prices on basics are the best I've found, online or offline, for the things I buy. Friendly, helpful staff.
I like the spicy flavors best.
menu includes interesting light roast single origin coffees. great lattes. Italian sodas. fresh popcorn w/real butter available at chelsea next door.
best espresso in town. very convenient for early morning coffee pickups. option of sitting in the woods. plenty of canine friendly seating.
not just impeccable fine dining -- best coffee and burger in the neighborhood. great brunch. hospitable service.
What you see is what you get -- and it's really good. They also sell pork skin to take home and fry up for yourself.
Very pretty, unique service. Didn't even know about the Ruthenian rite until visiting. Best Christmas decorations in town.
I love this place. Always changing, always inviting and always something there that moves me to buy it.
