BEST PLACE FOR CONVERSATION (WHETHER PARTICIPATING OR EAVESDROPPING)

Mercer’s Fresh Roasted Coffees

With operating hours that begin as early as 6:30 in the morning, you can’t expect to engage in (or eavesdrop on) many intelligent conversations until patrons perk up after a cup or two of this traditional coffeehouse’s estate-grown Arabica beans roasted and brewed while you wait. Once the fog of sleep wears off, you’re bound to be privy to juicy gossip and opinions about current local and national events. As the Charlotte Harbor café starts to fill its dining room area (it also serves breakfast and lunch) or the comfy sofas in the living room, there’s a discernible buzz, heightened by live entertainment, craft beers and wine.
