2. Coffee Shops

After your hike through Devil's Den State Park, cozy up at one of Fayetteville’s local coffee shops for a cup of joe! Dickson Street’s Puritan Brew Co is the perfect place to study by day and grab a beer by night. If you're looking for the hottest study spot, Mama Carmen's, located just down College, is a hoppin' study spot for students. Or maybe you're feeling like going outside but you also wanna go grab some coffee, in which case Arsaga’s Café located on Dickson Street or their other location at the corner of Church and Center off the square is the place for you. This joint has been made famous by their coffee, crepes, fancy toast at Church and Center, and gracious service!
