If you are in the mood for a cup of coffee and are Adventurous than this is your place. As someone not originally from the area this coffee shop feels very full of community. With local art and a bulletin board full of local events and organizations this place embodies Durham culture. They have unique drinks and friendly people and I feel like you could make a couple friends while just standing in line. Would recommend

The coffee here is world class. I haven't had better anywhere in Italy, Spain, Vietnam, Turkey or any other coffee culture mecca you can think of. It's also just a welcoming spot. Best in Durham.

Quaint and lovely coffee shop. It is deceiving in size, it looks small when I drove up but it was quite large and had generous seating. The staff was lovely and helpful when presented with multiple questions and requests. I think I have found my new local coffee shop. In addition to the above, they have a a pretty awesome menu and items. Everything I tried was delicious (coffee, tea and food were tasted) and nicely priced. Highly recommended.

Can be busy in the morning but they usually keep the line moving. It can take a while in line if they are explaining an item to a customer, but it is nice that they do explain. Outdoor seating. Nice staff. Good coffee.

Quite possibly the best coffee experience in the city. I love that the menu and offerings rotate every month, meaning there is always something new to try. The atmosphere and design is incredible and the staff are super friendly. Also a good opportunity to get hands-on with equipment if you are considering buying something.

Cute place with indoor and shaded outdoor seating. I got a spiced drinking chocolate, iced with a shot of espresso, and the spinach pastry which was really good. The drinks definitely can be pricey depending on what you get but it was kind of expected because of the setting. Although my drink was good it wasn't worth the expense. I would go again to get a pastry and less expensive drink.

The BEST cold brew in town! Stayed in Charlotte for a weekend and literally went here every day for coffee. Barista Stella was the nicest person ever and gave me and my friend some ideas on what to do in Charlotte. The environment is also very cool! Interior design aids the mod coffee shop vibe. And the second level is a perfect place to study.

The inside of this coffee shop is much bigger than its outside would suggest. The decor is really interesting and it had a lively vibe as opposed to some shops that are more quiet than a library. The baristas were quick, fast, friendly, and very helpful. I got a latte and you can tell that the vanilla syrup is homemade. I would highly suggest this place!

Nice spot, somewhat limited seating but lots of stools available to pull up to a place to set your drink. Built in an old garage, also real good coffee and chocolate drinks. Friendly staff as well!

I absolutely adore Cocoa Cinnamon. It is welcoming, cozy, and friendly and there is plenty of space to sit and get some work done or chat with a friend. Their coffee is also quite good. The drawback, however, is the fact that sometimes there is not enough parking around Cocoa Cinnamon.

Great coffee with a cute and comfortable atmosphere. Parking is tough at busy times with all the nightlife places nearby. There isn't much seating inside but it's comfortable and there are a few work surfaces. The covered outdoor seating is very pleasant when the weather cooperates. Great little coffee shop!

The hot chocolate options are sooooo yummy and make me feel like I’m right back in San Francisco. Turmeric? Yes please! Ginger? Yes! Cardamom? Of course! And the chocolate in the drinks is properly dark.

This coffee shop has a great vibe! Not a ton of room inside, but that adds to its cozy feel (perfect for a Durham joint). Ample outdoor seating is available when it is warm out. Much of it is under cover, so seats can still be used in light rain. The coffee was good, but not amazing. I recommend their specialty drinks. They are not too sweet like many other popular destinations. I recommend the place to the solo book reader, the quit date couple, or the busy student.

Cocoa Cinnamon is one of my favourite places in Durham and a must-stop, even if you're passing through. You will never have to worry about whether or not you're going to enjoy your drink because everything is delicious. Everyone who works there has always been incredibly sweet, personable, and clearly love what they're doing. I would recommend, for coffee: Tower of Babel and for hot cocoa: Granada + Ixchel.

Everything we have had here has been great. I love going here and I love the old building. The decor is nice too. The service is alway fast and pleasant. Tons of seating in and out side.
