Sola Coffee wins "Best Local Coffee House" for Triangle Downtowner's "Best of Downtowner Awards 2016"

After a few weeks of compiling thousands of votes in our 7th Annual Best of Downtowner Awards, it’s fi‡nally done. We always look forward to seeing new names in the winners’ lists, as well as returning winners from last year who rocked the ballots again. We couldn’t agree more with our voters’ choices and think you guys have the best and most diverse taste of any magazine readers in the Triangle. As always, the food and drink categories garnered the most votes and, judging by your picks, the most popular restaurants make a point of using locally sourced, sustainable ingredients. In general, the foodie scene across the entire Triangle is pretty amazing and we’re lucky to have so many great styles, price ranges, and places to choose from. We’re proud to continue featuring only locally-owned businesses in the Downtowner Awards, and equally proud that other Triangle area magazines are doing the same. Buying local ensures more of our spending dollars stay in the local economy, helps to create (and keep) jobs, drives growth, and shows support for our community. So, be sure to support and buy local!
