Support the Chapel Hill Service league Through Their Christmas House Program To Benefit Orange County Children In Need

4For 65 years now, the Chapel Hill Service League has sponsored Christmas House to benefit Orange County children who most need support during the holidays. This favorite annual event ensures a brighter holiday for more than 800 children in our community each December. Christmas House provides an opportunity for financially challenged parents and guardians to select new toys, books and coats for their children in a one-day, free shopping spree. New bicycles and helmets are donated to Christmas House and are given by lottery to lucky boys and girls.

Family and friends of all ages are invited to bring new toys to our Wish Trees at the Open Eye Cafe and around the region during the holiday season. We’re extremely grateful to the community for your continuing and generous support.

For more info and a list of tree locations go to : Chapel Hill Service League


Now Carrying Big Spoon Nut Butter BARS!!

Balanced, on-the-go nutrition doesn’t have to sacrifice integrity, flavor, or freshness. The proof is in Big Spoon fresh, handcrafted nut butter bars.

BS-Cherry_Pepita_Print_Full-3 (2)

Made in small batches with our own fresh-roasted nut butter and the best whole ingredients out there, they are equally tasty and nutritious without compromise… this is probably the kind of bar you’d make at home if you only had time.

Especially coveted by our competitive athlete friends, these fiber-rich, high-protein, antioxidant Pepita_Bar_Square_Web-4_grandepowerhouses are perfect as fuel for intense workouts and post-adventure recoveries, and they’re also simply delicious, hunger-curbing snacks.

The Apricot Pepita Bar combines the toasty crunch of fresh-roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) with chunks of organic stone-ground Taza dark chocolate, whole grains, and the sunny sweetness of golden, dried apricots.

The Cherry Pecan Bar pairs naturally sweet, dark-roasted pecans with tart, unsweetened dried cherries, chunks of organic stone-ground Taza dark chocolate, whole grains, grass-fed whey protein, and raw wildflower honey.

Coffee Stout Collaboration Between Carrboro Coffee Roasters & Steel String Brewery Available by Bottle!

We’re excited to announce the next bottling of Carrboro Coffee’s collaboration with Steel String Brewery, the No Quarter Brekkie Stout.No-Quarter-Preview

No Quarter Brekkie Stout is brewed by Steel String Brewery in Carrboro using Carrboro Coffee Roasters’ Finca La Providencia cold brew from farmer Juan Francisco Pira in Guatemala. This is a distinctive take on the Coffee Stout being a bit lighter and much more flavorful!

The beer is available on tap at Steel String and by the bottle at Open Eye Cafe and Caffe Driade.

The Brekkie Stout is the latest in a series of delicious coffee beers produced in collaboration by Steel String and Carrboro Coffee, including the Night Train Coffee IPA and the Dooley Black Saison.
