Setting is absolutely phenomenal! French press coffee is excellent! Expressing drinks are yummy. We spent a short amount of time, but were able to find a secluded portion of the garden to enjoy our drinks! Will be back! Definitely worth a visit or ten.

We did not find the coffee/tea or pastries to be anything special. However, this is a very special, peaceful, romantic and unique spot. I would definitely come here again, just for the atmosphere.

With its woodland setting and both open and covered patio seating, this is a perfect winter weekend stop. The pastries are lovely to look at and even better to eat. There are just a few different kinds on offer, but all were tempting. Coffee, teas...More

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

We were sent here by a local antiques dealer, and he was right. Coffee beans from local roaster Carrboro Coffee Roasters, pastries from local bakeries like Guglhupf, and a setting that is not to be beat. Pretty hot when we stopped there, so we didn't...More

The coffee here is good, standard, and like every place overpriced. The atmosphere is amazing, with seating outside, lit lights at night in the forest. Very secluded and calm, great place to read or finish up some work.
