This is one of the top coffee houses in Chapel Hill. The locals love it. The atmosphere is 100% great. Beer and wine and baked goods available too.

Caffe Driade offers decent beverages and a pleasant, woodsy location, but it’s NOT the place to go for a quick cup of coffee. Come here with time on your hands as the slowpoke crew takes Driade’s relaxed vibe seriously.

Caffee Driade is a hidden gem. It is hard to find but it is a wonderful little place hidden on a hill top off Franklin street. This is a great place to have a tea and read a book or it's a great meeting place...More

Caffe Driade has a wonderful atmosphere with ample outdoor seating in a wooded area. The coffee is also very good. However, I don't often go here because the service is reliably unpleasant. Baristas are unfriendly and unwelcoming. I've gone probably close to 10 times because...More

I went to Caffee Driade with a friend last week, and we both loved it there. Unlike Starbucks, they don't offer free Wifi, but you can pay a nominal fee for it. They hope that you would use the coffee house for conversation, reading, relaxing....More
