BOB Awards Winner's Guide

Central Coffee Co.

Map719 Louise Ave.
Charlotte, NC
  • Food


It’s not too hip, and it’s not too stiff. The music isn’t too loud, and it’s not too soft. Up front, barstools line the window seats, for those who just want to have a quick chat. In the narrow middle, tables for two run along the walls. And in the back, four cushioned chairs surround a table for those working on a group project. On any given day, everyone from civic leaders to artists is here, making connections and putting Charlotte to work.
