Morgan Street, in downtown Raleigh, is a historic street with a block of nice cafes. It is near NC State University. 1920s houses set a cute mood, despite the overall rugged look of Raleigh. Next to Atomic Salon is a dog-friendly bar, Drink Drank Drunk, that serves drinks under a tree, for those aged 21 and up. The Remedy Diner has sunny outdoor seating. Coffee Worx serves coffee and delicious Maple View ice cream inside Raleigh Pharmacy. Your best bet is Irregardless Cafe, which has cute outdoor seating framed by ivy, plus a magical interior that looks like you're under the sea, bubbles and all. Irregardless Cafe has delicious food nicely presented, sweet waiter service, and live music every night at 6:30pm (6pm on weekend nights), plus often at lunchtime (11:30am) and late night (9pm) on Saturdays, and brunchtime on Sundays (10am). 

Parallel to Morgan Street is Ashe Avenue, which has some more cute 1920s houses.
It doesn't feel entirely safe around here, so come with a friend.
For a long street with bars where NC State students go to party, check out Glenwood Ave, a thirteen minute walk away.
