Smelly Cat Coffee

“Smelly cat, smelly cat, what are they feeding you?” Who doesn’t recognize the lyrics from the iconic song Phoebe Buffay performed at her local coffee shop in the popular TV show Friends. Named for that catchy ditty, Smelly Cat Coffeehouse in Charlotte, North Carolina, has charmed patrons since 2000 with its offbeat atmosphere, a superb roaster menu, fresh baked goods, and probably the most clever moniker of any coffee shop. Next time you’re in Charlotte, scoot over to the North Davidson District (NoDa), pull up a chair on the patio, and savor a steaming cup of joe. Be sure to tell ’em Phoebe sent ya!
