Not sure about other reviewers' experiences but I've always found the staff to be really friendly. The drinks are delicious and the environment is a cool, quaint and quiet space to meet with someone or get some work done. It's one of my favorite mobile work places in town

Visited with a friend. Coffee is good and pastry just average. Layed back coffee house. Friendly staff.

The staff at the front register always seem annoyed. They definitely don't show any appreciation for the business, which is why I'll start going elsewhere. There are too many other choices in the area to put up with bad customer service.

This is my favorite place in Charlotte for a quick cappuccino. Try the shortie, it is perfect. Plus they have delicious home made biscotti and really excellent quiche if you're hungry. Not much seating but it's worth it anyway.

I have enjoyed this coffee shop for several years, this morning I visited and was surprised with the comment from the counter and the change in the size of their muffins. If you don't have anything nice to say to a customer, just smile. Why talk down to someone when they have so many other choices of establishments to take... More

This place stays packed. They make a killer mocha so it is worth waiting for a parking place when they are slammed.

Family business, great people, great coffee. What is not to like? i am mystified by the reviews that claim their coffee is bitter. I have never experienced that. The quiche and fresh baked goods are delicious.

The coffee is very good and they have different quiches and multiple muffins and baked goods. The service is prompt and they offer 3 coffees daily and cold brew. I have tried several of the offerings and the were tasty and high quality.

I have stopped here several times, and honestly, was quite disappointed. The taste of coffee was strange. Sour and bitter. And, no, it's not how dark roast fair trade coffee beans are supposed to taste. I am also surprised to read about great and cozy atmosphere. Maybe it is great when it's just you and barista, but from my experience... More

My son and I stopped into Central Coffee Company after going out for lunch. I ordered a medium size light roast brown coffee without milk or sugar. He ordered a latte. My son enjoyed his latte but I found my coffee bitter. The atmosphere is very quaint but I expected a better cup of coffee.

Thank Steven C
