Global Village is right across the street from Patterson Hall, in the center of Hillsborough street's NC State stretch. The coffee is excellent - they use organically grown coffee and have a large amount of information available about social responsiblity for your coffee habit. There's a great deal of seating in a small space. The mint mocha (which my friends and I have affectionately dubbed "liquid thin mint") is to die for. The lighting and decor are cheery and quite pleasant - check out the painting of the building from when the coffee shop was a bike shop sitting on the shelves.
