This is a little place to drink a good coffee relaxed and you can test some pastries too. There are high and low chairs. It’s a good place to talk and share too. I recommend this place.

This is the spot if you like your coffee well made with the finest ingredients. This is not a large place or a real social place but it is the best coffee I have found in town. Try Refuge in order to find what coffee can and should taste like. Experiment too because they know how to make the best fresh coffee.

I have been to Refuge many times and spent many hours there studying. I'm not sure how the owner managed to find such engaged, genuinely concerned employees to operate the store. They take great care in crafting each and every drink made. The menu is simple to understand yet diverse. The effort that goes into sourcing the raw materials is amazing. The shop is very clean and modern and always has great music playing. The best thing about the shop to me is how inviting it is and how unitimidating it is to spend time there.

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!
