Thanks A Latte Coffee and Gift Boutique 

Thanks A Latte was opened in 2013 on a whim, and we're so thankful it did. It is family owned and came to fruition when deciding on their next journey and business venture. They now have a location in both Holly Springs and Angier. They take pride in being family oriented and providing a welcoming space for all customers to grab a quick coffee or stay and enjoy the environment while getting work done or relaxing. 

Something unique and special that Thanks A Latte offers is a prayer request. They have a little book by the register where you can write down your prayer request or an online form you can fill out. This simple act shows their love for their community and customers. 

Their drink menu consists of "the basics," "not coffee," and house lattes. If your visit in-store, you can also browse their gist boutique while enjoying your coffee. For on-the-go and at home, you can order coffee in a jar; all you have to do is call the morning before! Here are the options for coffee in a jar:

Their coffee is supplied through a local roaster, Joe Van Gogh, and it is delicious! They serve drip, pour-over, french press, espresso drinks, specialty lattes, chai, and others!
