Carolina Blues Coffee and Bagels is what happens when you combine coffee and sweets with a little Southern Hospitality. The idea of being neighborly is where is the store's main source of inspiration.

What's more is the cafe is located right in the J. Douglas Galyon Depot which is of course easily accessible to Amtrak, Greyhound, Greensboro Transit Authority and The HEAT Shuttles.
A gas station from the 1920s was transformed into a restaurant serving delectable American fare known as The Summit Station Eatery. Retaining the former architecture, this dining establishment was brought to life in 2009 by Lisa and Ron Estes.

Those who would like to drop in for a drink can unwind at the long bar. On some nights lucky guests may even be entertained by live musicians churning out soothing melodies.
Much Martini Bar sets the stage for a night of fun with their dramatic decor. A 20-foot stone bar greets guests upon entry, followed by torches and two ten-foot waterfalls.

The only two things you really need to have while at any bar is a good burger and good beer. At Grey's Tavern you've got all three at your disposal. With televisions adorning the walls throughout the bar, there's no way you could possibly have a a bad view of it. The burgers are massive and so are the french fries. A relaxed and inviting atmosphere will of course attract other like-minded individuals and may get crowded, but that's a good thing. After all, it just means you've come to the right place. Local live music performances are pretty regular here, too.

The Green Bean is as warm and inviting as the coffee they sell. This independent coffee house also has a great selection of organic coffee, espresso, pastries from local bakeries, as well as beer and wine.
