I went to the other coffee stops and this place blows them away. In fact I would have to say it's the best I've ever had anywhere. I've been to MANY cities including Seattle and this place knows how to do coffee.

Refuge Coffee is NOT "just another coffee shop". We stopped in Refuge for the first time today and boy were we impressed! The baristas were all young, friendly, energetic and EXTREMELY knowledgable of their many unique offerings. Refuge does provide comfortable seating for using your electronics, reading your book, or just plain hanging out. The menu is quite different from your "typical" coffee shop.In addition to some standard items, they offer some drinks I've not heard of before including Mach 1, Hit & Sit, Gibraltar and Signature. They have developed some great drinks utilizing espresso and various other ingredients. Be sure and ask about the meaning of the satellite dish on their logo. It's really cool! This friendly, cozy shop is right at home here in Fairhope!

When you taste the amazing coffee at Refuge, which they themselves grow in Guatemala and roast themselves, you know that there is a God who created the world and saw that it was very good. I had a cappuccino yesterday after an unintended absence....It was amazing!! The right temperature and the cream on top exquisitely perfect!

This is coffee you'd find in a more "big-city" coffee place, but with the friendliness you'd find in Fairhope. Great cappuccino and pour-over coffee. Atmosphere is relaxed and low-key. I'll be back on my next trip to Fairhope!

Honestly the best coffee in Fairhope! If you're looking for artificial sweeteners and froofroo macchiattos this is not the place. But if you are a real coffee connoisseur this place has the best beans in the country I swear. Try the mocha, you won't ever go anywhere else.
