I was skeptical about this place at first as it is right next to one of my favorite hookah lounges but I think this has now become my new favorite hookah spot in Raleigh. The lounge was so comfortable, the staff was so friendly, and it honestly just felt like home. They have games, tea, and some snacks. They also gave us free fruit when we arrived which was so sweet! I do wish some of the areas of the lounge had some dim lighting to add to the ambiance, but other than that this place is amazing! I will be back soon and plenty of times after!

Great atmosphere. Was previously an Applebee's and the conversion gives me a strange satisfaction. Staff is great, space is open enough where it doesn't feel chaotic or loud. Tea is pricey though; a cup sets you back $4, a medium teapot $9. It's a good change of pace from the industrial minimalist chic of most Raleigh-area cafes and the grungy college student vibe of Cup a Joe down the street. Also lacks the dark, dirty vibe of hookah cafes—better for a place to read or relax with friends than conspiring with men who don't give last names.

This place is one of the best cafe's I have been to in Raleigh. Great atmosphere to study or hangout with friends. Great variety in drinks and hookah. Excellent staff and customer service as well!
