Not Just Coffee has taken Instagram by storm. I first heard about the impressive latte art and cool aesthetic from social media, and was instantly intrigued. I’ll admit, I was skeptical of the amount of praise the coffee shop was earning among Charlotte creatives. Could coffee really be that cool? But then I succumbed to my curiosity, and honestly, the first thing I did was snap a shot for Instagram.
The store boasts two locations, one at 7th Street Public Market (Uptown Charlotte) and the other at Atherton Mill (South End). On a Saturday morning, the coffee shop is crowded with Millenials stopping by to sit at the bar and drink a latte. At any day of the week, you can count on lots of good vibes and excellent coffee. I have been back to both locations many times since I first stumbled upon this little coffee shop. I just can’t get enough!
My personal favorite is the vanilla sugar latte, but their pour over coffees are extremely good as well. If you like stronger coffee, definitely don’t be afraid to try it!
If you haven’t experienced this amazing place, please go here instead of spending your typical $5 on a Starbucks cup of joe. You won’t regret shopping at this local gem!
