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
The address is wrong. It's 119 W. Main St., Suite 300, Durham, NC 27701
Everyone should come to this show!!! All these artists are awesome and I'm so glad to see them playing together!
WOOO! I am SO excited for this!
This is going to be a great show. Chapel Hill, get ready to ROCK!
Downtown Durham has been missing soul food in the heart of Parrish St for a while. Places have come and gone, but I really hope this place stays. delicious . sweet, friendly Durham style service with a smile, and southern comfort food. the night we went, slow jams were right on time, too.
YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS THIS SHOW!!!

WILD GARAGE A-GO-GO-WIGGLEFEST SUPREME !!!! with - THE LONELY TEARDROPS w/ THE TRASH HATS and THE MANIMALS
THE LONELY TEARDROPS (feat: Crash LaResh - FORMER DRUMMER OF tHE dEXTER rOMWEBER dUO) w/ THE TRASH HATS (feat Jimmy JimmyBrad Ray of Jimmy and the Teasers) & THE MANIMALS (rockin ass kitty hawk transplants)
WHATS THIS ALL ABOUT ??
"Imagine a cocktail of the colorfully crowd pleasing stage antics of Southern Culture on The Skids mixed with the musical dynamics of The White Stripes, add a double shot of Link Wray and Dick Dale stirred vigorously in a Detroit Cobras martini shaker, and you would have only scratched the surface of this engaging house party grenade!
THE LONELY TEARDROPS are an American LOW-Fi BIG SOUND rock N’ Roll A GO-GO combo heavily steeped in early 1960's Mod-era Girl Garage Groups, Soul, Blues, and Surf Music. The band is currently on a rampaging mission to whip every room into a Bad Ass Rockin Mofo-a-Go-Go of a dance party.
The group currently consists of Katie Teardrops (Guitarist,Vocalist,Songwriter) formerly of The Pimps, The Strap-Ons, The Curfew Breakers) and Crash LaResh (formerly of The Dexter Romweber Duo, Flat Duo Jets, and too many others to mention.) The band was originally formed By Katie in 2006, and has evolved thru many line-ups until finally reaching its current state of perfection.
These kids have discovered the magic formula for hatching even the harshest wallflower out its shell J
DON’T MISS THEM"
Watching the show on television is one thing, but seeing these dancers perform LIVE was incredible. They are all extremely talented and I am so glad that I could attend this event. The energy was through the roof! Getting tickets [even if it was at the last minute for me] was definitely worth it.
