I visited a FABOlous…I mean fabulous coffee shop on Saturday when I took a field trip away from the house to get some bloggie work done.
I’ve stopped by here one time before, but just to take a peek. On Saturday, I took my first true visit to local hidden gem – FABO Cafe.
FABO features locally roasted coffee and even beer and wine.
I love the open, airy feel inside the cafe. All around are beautiful hand made pieces of artwork – from paintings to furniture to jewelry.
But there are separated “rooms” that give you a good feeling of privacy.
Obligatory TCL lighting photo. You know I love a good light fixture. This was is so funky!
Besides local coffee, FABO Cafe also features local food products…
…and baked goodies. Yum!
Don’t mind if I do. 😉
I found a bright spot near the rear entrance with lots of natural light and a cozy couch to settle into.
I had lots of blog work to do, so I was glad I found a great sitting area.
Random photos of the post – I wore my espadrilles for the first time this year! Yay for the return of warm weather!
I decided to try one of the cinnamon rolls. It was light and had just the right amount of frosting. Yum!
To drink, I had a vanilla latte. I really liked how the beans are locally roasted. Go local!
I loved my latte. I’m so glad to have good coffee in town.
Check out these fun mini bowls I found in the basket in front of me.
“Diet, Whatever.” Amen! I’m so not a diet person. I’m a non-diet kind of gal. 😉
I ended up staying at FABO much longer than I anticipated, but I’m glad to say I managed to reply to all the blog comments I’ve been meaning to for the whole month of March! Woohoo! I think I have quite a few comments left from February to reply to, but to at least be caught up through March is a big win for me. I absolutely love reading all the comments you guys take the time to leave me, and I often have great responses thought out in my head. But sometimes, I’m reading the comment on my iPhone and it’s near impossible to reply via the phone. Sometimes I just procrastinate. Sometimes…who knows! All this to say, please continue leaving your kind, thoughtful, and wonderful comments, and even if I don’t reply right away, know that I read and appreciate each and every one.
And for my local friends, be sure to check out FABO Cafe some time soon. They have free wifi, great local arts & crafts (yes, they’re for sale), and awesome and local eats/drinks.

Have you let us know which April Fool’s choice was the true one?? I am waiting (impatiently) for an answer!! You piqued my curiosity 😀
No, not yet! I still need to post the answer. 😉 Maybe tomorrow?
Oh my goodness… you’ve found my favorite blogging getaway! 😉
Isn’t this place wonderful? I went there for the first time last month with the girls from Lululemon and I’ve gone back about a dozen times to blog and do some work. Also, I get the vanilla latte (soy, because I can’t do dairy.) and it’s seriously the BEST latte in Charlotte. I was so thrilled with it!
Glad to see more people finding out about this place, it’s one of my favorites!! 🙂
Fabo Cafe looks like a real find! I love finding cute coffee shops to work in! I get so much more done working in a cafe, rather than an office setting.
Vanilla latte is my go to coffee drink too! I still haven’t been to that place but want to go and bring Clyde, since they are dog friendly. Now I get why I got a whole bunch of comment replies from you the other day…lol!
Places like that are the best – it reminds me a lot of Austin’s here in Orlando – very local/artsy coffee bar. I think I need to hit it up again ASAP!
Love, love the look of that funky coffee shop!
I was there last week with Kelly from Foodie Fresh. It is such an adorable fun place! Your photos captured it beautifully. 🙂
That cinnamon roll is calling to me right now. I wish I could pluck it off the screen.
What an awesome cafe! I love the ambience through your pictures. 🙂
I love coffee. My favorite is a Starbucks creation (Caramel Macchiato). Love.
Cute place 🙂 That cinnamon roll looks so good!
where is Fabo?
FABO is off Selwyn Rd in Charlotte, NC 🙂
Speaking of Fabo, those shoes are fabulous! We need more coffee shops like that in Utah (and better weather to wear sandals!).
Thanks LauraJayne! They’re Banana Republic. 🙂
Your cinnamon rolls always make my mouth water and then I crave one. But I never see any that look as good as yours.
Do you have a Great Harvest in your town? Theirs are amazing! 🙂
Those shoes are so cute! I wish we had a local shop around here. 🙂 I always get a mocha or white chocolate type lattes. I’ve never ventured out and got vanilla or any other flavor. Haha, I just always think chocolate when ordering. Maybe I’ll try something new next time I’m in a coffee shop.
Great coffee shop. Love all the cute pastries and the way they are displayed.
