Swamp Rabbit is a local co-op/coffeehouse where you can pick up local farm fresh produce, grab a cup of coffee, and treat yourself to a freshly made pastry. It's one of the better coffeehouses in town as they use beans from renowned North Carolina roaster Counter Culture.
As an added bonus, the Swamp Rabbit bike trail starts here, so you can hop on/off before your coffee break.
Swamp Rabbit serves 2 different drip coffees, usually a dark and medium roast. Both options are always great as the use beans from a wonderful local NC roaster called Counter Culture. They also offer all the traditional espresso based drinks. If visiting in the fall, you must try their Pumpkin Spice Latte which is made with real pumpkin!
Additionally, there are many tempting treats to choose amongst. They always have great donuts including a vegan/GF option. The chocolate croissant and cinnamon rolls are both amazing, and I have found myself ordering them on more than one occasion. If available, he blueberry slab pie is pretty good too!
Also be sure to pick up a loaf of fresh stecca bread (made fresh daily in house) and produce/fruit from local farms. Lots of fresh local products here. This is the place to go if you need organic, local, vegan, gluten free, etc. Also, their apparel is really cute!
Service is always friendly although the line can be long on busy weekends. This is a counter ordering place, so at times, it can be a bit inconvenient trying to see which pastries are available before your turn to order.
Swamp Rabbit Cafe is a trendy bustling place. You will always find a good crowd here enjoying the fresh eats and drinks. The patio is perfect during the warmer months. Grab a drink and pastry and enjoy the outdoorsy setting.
Swamp Rabbit is one of the best places to enjoy a light breakfast and great cup of coffee all in the same place. I love that you can hop right on the beautiful Swamp Rabbit trail after your meal.
