Our Favorite Coffee Hangouts
In The Sandhills
Who doesn’t like a good cup of coffee to get the day started? There are fun, hip, cool and most importantly local coffee shops all across Moore County, but these are some of our favorites.
Boogie down to Buggy Town in downtown Carthage, named after the town’s horse and buggy history. Their saying is “good coffee, good company and a good place to share both!” You sold us! The vibe is very laid back, so a great place to grab a cup and walk to the heart of the town to see the four wall-sized murals pained by Scott Nurkin that capture the history of this historic Southern town.
Crossroads Coffee is in the town of Vass on the eastern side of Moore County, just off highway 1 on Main Street. If you like breakfast for lunch, or later, yep, they serve it. Oh, and with great coffee and a smile. Worth the drive for coffee and their locally made beef jerky and honey, too.
Cactus Creek has 55 flavors of coffee! 55! Yes, we counted, too. This is a gourmet roaster located in Aberdeen, so coffee snobs have a happy place to go! Plus, we like that it is veteran-owned and has been for more than 15 years! Great coffee, but worth the visit just to see their elaborate coffee crazed operation.
This coffee shop is located near Railhouse Brewery in downtown Aberdeen and it a fun place to hangout, sip a coffee, latte or other beverage! This former gas station used to be the official hangout way back in the day to hear the latest gossip, or for local politicians to spin their yarns. Today, it’s hip, cool and dog-friendly, so bring Fido and fill up on fun here.
In the heart of the Village of Pinehurst, this former town post office turned coffee hangout (hence, the name) is one of the mainstays for morning joe mavens. But, this place has more than the bean scene! The Roast Office offers a breakfast and lunch menu (their chicken salad is amazing), nutritious smoothies and fresh scones from the Pinescone Café.
In downtown Southern Pines, Swank is not just a coffee shop, they also offer handmade goods from local crafters and artisans. Sip, shop and explore the comfy confines. Grab a scone and hit the streets of the town for a stroll down Broad Street and make a day of it with great local dining and shopping!
Don’t forget about other coffee hangouts like Java Bean,Agora Bakery, The Bakehouse, Amor Ciego Coffee Co, Simply Coffee in Robbins. and Frankie’s Southern Grinds, all in Southern Pines as well. You are never too far away from great coffee when you visit the Pinehurst, Southern Pines and Aberdeen Area of North Carolina!
