“Coffee shop worth detouring to enjoy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

We look for hidden gems along our travels. This place was a delight! Beautiful outdoor setting, wonderful coffee, cappuccino and even a lovely local wine list. This is worth a short detour while traveling the I-40.

“A great place for coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

I go to Caffe Driade every time i'm in town and I just love this place. This is what enjoying a cup of coffee is all about. The coffee is great but it is the atmosphere that really makes it stand out. Its in a old converted home with a great patio in the back and awesome park like views. If your adventurous there is also a path that leads to a walking tail around back.

“Chapel Hill's best kept secret!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

Love this little hidden gem of a coffee house. They have music outside in the summer. It's generally quiet and filled with graduate students working. A terriffic place to unwind.

“Exactly what a coffeehouse in a college town should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

If you want a corporate-clad atmosphere where everything looks exactly like it does in every other town, this is not the place for you. If you want some character, a little local flavor, and one of the best lattes on the planet, this is the place for you. Would never dream of going anywhere else in town - Driade is by far the best of the lot. Yes, it's quirky - and that's one of the reasons I like it.
