Absolutely delicious! The oysters and scallops are fantastic, not to mention, the mac and cheese and white chocolate bread pudding. It was all great! Our waiter was friendly and knowledgable about all the dishes on the menu and the fresh selections of the day. He offered great recommendations and informed us that all of their seafood was no more than 48 hours old.
Amazing food no matter what you have a taste for! I love Brigs!
I hope they will keep serving seafood along with Vegan options!
I attended the sold-out show on Saturday, and was so pleasantly surprised. The humble setting of the Common Ground Theater was transformed and transcended with skill from this amazing production team. The work of costume designer Chelsea Kurtzman and mask-maker Will Deedler lent a surreal quality to the characters, who worked wonders in bringing life to their respective parts. Those without masks gave unfettered performances to this lively production which had many surprises. From the titillating interplay of Jade Arnold's Mozart and Molly Forlines' Constanze, to the tortured villainy of John Jimerson's Salieri, the play rolls and tumbles bringing the audience along to the inevitable and tragic end, but not before it delights with moments of spontaneous and gleeful anachronism. Well played.
I sat down in the third row tired after a long day and left refreshed after an evening very well spent. The Amadeus cast accomplished a funky, completely entertaining take on the story with skill, tongue-in-cheek humor, and passion. I was drawn in from beginning to end, there were no parts that lagged, and I was sorry when it was over. Well done. Very well done.

Best Authentic Turkish Restaurant in raleigh and drink special in historic city market downtown Raleigh
Best longform improv in the area.
Nice turnout this early - I hope more continue to show up at the libraries in the coming weeks!
The best venue for house music in the Triangle period! Mosaic is a Lounge that transforms into mini club featuring the best house DJs, local, national and worldwide. With an extensive wine menu, indoor and outdoor hookahs, a fantastic patio and great location in Raleigh, this is the place to go when you are missing the NYC/Chicago/Miami vibe.
Saw the show last night and it was absolutely wonderful! The acting was superb and the set design and costumes beautiful. I highly recommend seeing this show. You will not be disappointed!
The first thing to know about Coffee Haven is that it has a completely unassuming exterior -- in fact, completely generic. You can drive or walk by it dozens of times without noticing it. If you happen to notice it, you probably won't think, "That looks like an interesting place, I think I'll try it out." But in fact, it's a hidden gem. Once you step inside, you realize you've discovered something not many other folks know about.
In my opinion, Coffee Shop serves the best coffee on Hillsborough Street and even when compared to cafes downtown. They also serve fresh-made breakfast and lunch. This combination of good food, good coffee and lack of pretentiousness brings Coffee Haven to the top of my list for cafes in Raleigh.
It's also quiet. I set up my professional lunch meetings at Coffee Haven. Of course, there's WiFi. There's offstreet parking. And did I mention freshly made food?
Coffee Haven is located in a building that houses three businesses and which has a 1970's-ish Pizza-Hut style roof. It shares the building with an old-school barber shop and a shoe store. The signage is very, very generic. My first impression from the street view was that it was the kind of place that served Folgers and truck-stop food. The contrast between what you expect and what you discover is part of Coffee Haven's charm.
There are plenty of coffee shops to choose from in Raleigh and each is suited to different types of customers. Coffee Haven is great for grad students, working professionals and anyone who prefers the taste of coffee over the need to be seen as hip. It's not a place designed for undergrads who want to camp out for hours doing homework in overstuffed living room chairs.
My preference is for quieter, non-chain shops with good food. When I think about the many cafes I go to around NC State and even downtown Raleigh, my preference is Coffee Haven.
This is going to be a stellar show!!!!!!!!
Jam legends moe. and funky alt rockers BIG Something on the same show is one that shouldn't be missed! www.moe.org www.BigSomething.net
Thanks Ashley and Indy for the nod! The Pinhook sound, door and bars folks were super. Wild happy people packed the house. The band exploded into the zone on the very first tune. A truly ecstatic primal throwdown. I wanna do that again! Rob VanVeld-FivePointsRounders
Though there was some talent up their sleeve, we never saw the total rabbit in the hat, the handkerchief rope down the throat, or the sawing of the assistant in half. The act was not Houdini but more of a David Copperfield style mystery show
