Cocoa Cinnamon, Durham, NC
This nationally recognized coffee shop brings some industrial chic to the North Carolina city, and, like many coffee houses on this list, has a socially conscious bent. (Cocoa Cinnamon guarantees a living wage for all its employees.) But one thing that sets this spot apart from the other coffee houses on this list? Co-owner Arieli Barrera de Grodski moonlights as a luchadora (but keeps her identity a secret).
