Little Native, a cozy new coffee shop in downtown Raleigh, officially opens its doors today.

Driving the news: The shop, owned by the team behind Durham's Cloche, held soft opening hours last week to give Raleighites a sneak peek.

  • Located in a historic building on Person Street just two blocks from City Plaza, Little Native will be serving up espresso drinks and pastries from plant-based baker Crummy Hunters.
  • The shop will source primarily from single origin coffees. It is currently partnering with Larry's Coffee — which is all organic and fair trade — to do that, co-owner Ashleigh Davis tells Axios.

Lucille's thought bubble: I'm a latte snob, and the (plain, whole milk) latte Ashleigh made me on Thursday is definitely one of the best I've had in Raleigh. Our city has a lot of coffee shops, but Little Native poses fierce competition for the best latte in town.

Location: 426 S. Person St.

Hours: 8am-3pm, but subject to change.
