Studying in the same spot in the library gets old, and studying at home is too distracting. Switching up your studying environment every so often is a great way to get your creative juice flowing, stay focused, and ramp up your productivity. Here’s a brief look at some of the best study spots near Meredith College.
Cup A Joe
This funky coffeehouse has a lengthy menu that contains every kind of caffeinated beverage you can imagine, all made from delicious, house-roasted beans from around the world. They also offer a variety of scones, muffins and other pastries. Cup A Joe has been serving Raleigh for more than 20 years. It’s normally pretty busy all throughout the day, and it tends to be a bit noisy. So if you can’t handle a ton of background noise, then this isn’t the study spot for you.
Reverie: A Coffee Den
Reverie: A Coffee Den is a den in every sense of the word. The cozy, quiet café is right across the street from NC State. It’s a small coffeehouse, so seating is limited. But if you can get there early enough, it’s the perfect place for a study session. The cafe is owned and operated by one person, and you can feel the detail and care that go into your beverage. Reverie is known for good-tasting, high quality coffee, whether you order a simple cup of drip coffee or a handcrafted latte. Enjoy outdoor seating during warmer months.
Café de los Muertos
Great coffee served in a cool, laid-back setting. What more could you ask for? Café de los Muertos is one of the best study spots in Raleigh. Grab a table in the spacious upstairs seating area. The cafe is big on the “go local” movement, and while they feature international coffee beans, a lot of their beans are sourced by local roasters, too. They also sell pastries, salads, and other foods prepared by local businesses, including JP’s Pastry and Sweet Jane’s Bakery.
The Morning Times has been caffeinating Raleigh since 2006. It provides a classic coffeehouse experience full of hipster bohemian goodness. Their baristas are notoriously friendly, the house-made bagels are to die for, and the handcrafted espresso drinks are equally amazing. Mornings get pretty busy, so stop by in the afternoon or later and you’ll be able to find a table with no problem. Even better, Morning Times is located right next to The Times restaurant. Squeeze in a Sunday morning study session and pop in next door for brunch afterward!
