Carolina Moon® was created to provide our neighborhood and all guests who visit Lake Lure, Chimney Rock and the entire Hickory Nut Gorge, a friendly and relaxing café to enjoy a good cup of coffee, great conversations and free WiFi! For the many beautiful days we enjoy, our large outdoor deck is the perfect spot to sit and sip! You can come by boat, by car or on foot if you are taking in the sights and sounds of the Lake Lure Flowering Bridge. We are located between the east entrance to the Flowering Bridge and the Town Hall and Marina in Lake Lure.
We sit below the rock faced mountains of Chimney Rock State Park alongside Hwy. 74 and the Rocky Broad River, just as it becomes Lake Lure.
Our roaster is passionate about coffee and personally searches and selects coffees from among the finest quality Arabica beans from Indonesia, South and Central America and Africa. They pick only the top 5 percent of premium Arabic coffee beans in the world. Coffees are purchased from growers that contribute to saving delicate ecosystems of coffee growing communities. Our coffees are Fair Trade, Organic, and Rain Forest Alliance.
We sell primarily whole bean coffees in our retail shop but we are happy to personally grind for you to your specifications.
