Foursquare Tips

  • With three patios surrounded by a lush forest and a trail leading out into a nature preserve, Caff Driade is the most serene place to get a cup of coffee in Chapel Hill.
  • Possibly the best coffee shop in the triangle! Add some beer and make an evening of it.
  • Adorable place. Perfect for my morning coffee and pastry.
  • There is a gathering of the local queer & ally community every Wednesday night at 9pm. Good coffee & good conversation.
  • A cool Chapel Hill caf tucked away in the woods right off Franklin Street (half a mile before the main part). Great outdoor summer music. Coffee, wine, and beer.
  • The driade shake is SO GOOD. Espresso milkshake... Mmm
  • Great outdoor seating options, excellent pastries, good espresso drinks.
  • The cafe has a wide range of clientele, from college students to professionals. Order a cup of coffee and enjoy the atmosphere.
  • Great outdoor seating!
  • Off-the-beaten-path atmosphere, but you'll have to pay for internet (at least they have it). Espresso is better than Starbucks and Carribou; beer, wine and cigars for the alternative buzz.
  • One of the best coffee spots in Chapel Hill. Don't get the Driade Shake. It's wonderful, but the baristas hate making it.
  • Wonderful walking trail behind
  • If you're looking for good herbal tea, try the Hibiscus Zest, Lemon Mint, or Get Smart. And the press pots are so much fun.
  • The macarons are expensive, but always worth every penny. And every calorie.
  • This is my all time favorite place in chapel hill. Incredible coffee and atmosphere.
  • Sip a shake with espresso in it while gazing out at the trees. Then run around in the woods like a squirrel to work off the ice cream.
  • Go here on a nice day or night! The outdoor seating is pure bliss. Sip on some coffee or a nice glass of wine. They also have cigars!
  • Best coffee anywhere . . . Bar none!
  • Delicious, quality coffee. All pastries come from Guglehupf Bakery and they are exquisite. Try a berry tart for a delicious treat. Beware tho: some baristas can have a bit of an attitude...
  • Be prepared to pay for the use of their wifi!!!
