We are head over heels for this delicious creation, the Brown Sugar Oat Latte
This delightful latte is made with two shots of Carrboro Coffee Roasters‘ Piedmont Espresso, a dark brown sugar syrup and a touch of cinnamon. It is absolutely delicious hot or iced!
Wonderful with any milk, but especially good with Oat Milk to give it that extra comforting vibe…
Try one for yourself today!
Order in-person at our “window”, online or on our Toast Takeout App.
Caffe Driade is not just your award-winning, independently-owned, full-service Espresso bar, Wine Bar & Teahouse for the last 25+ years – we are also now Certified Living Wage Employers!
It has always been our mission to support our team as professionals, both economically and with professional development. For several decades now we have remained on that path, so that our cozy ‘Caffe in the Woods‘ is not only a unique destination, with award winning offerings, but a supportive and critical part of our community.
Retail Manager, Michelle M. Temple, states that living wages are important in treating employees ‘as the professionals they are, allowing them to transfer that economic support in pay, back through the many economic branches of our community, thus making the entire community stronger and more viable long term.’

Carrboro Coffee Roasters carefully paired three of their distinct Farmer Direct Relationship coffees as a representation of their personal relationships with coffee producer-partners, who are such an integral part of how CCR works and supports the coffee industry, and the people in it.
CCR have blended 3 individually delightful Farmer Direct Relationship coffees, from 3 distinct farms, that together create something unique and timely for this season of gathering and reflection.
Together these coffees present a luscious red fruit sweetness and acidity that is balanced by a wonderful caramel and chocolate base, a round silky body, and a dash of seasonal baking spice in the finish.
This blend offers a delicious experience that represents the unity and comforts of the season!
This makes a great gift on it’s own or paired with a mug or a Chemex brewer!
Available at the Caffe or online to ship to family & friends.
We are reopening this Thursday 10/29 @ 8am!
We look forward to seeing you Thursday!
We’ve got some exciting news…
Caffe Driade is officially reopening on Tuesday September 8th @ 8am!
We’ve missed you and can’t wait to see you again!
To protect the safety of all, seating will be spaced out at least 6 feet apart and we ask that neither tables nor chairs are moved from their designated spots.
Each table will have a two-sided sign, one side green and the other red. Red means stop and green means go!
Tables that have been sanitized and are ready for use will have the sign green side up.
If you see a table with the red side of the sign facing up, please see a staff member for sanitizing before sitting.
As you leave your table, please flip the sign over to the red side indicating that the table needs to be sanitized and see a staff member for any questions.
You can also continue to support the caffe by shopping at the Carrboro Coffee Roasters online store https://shopcarrborocoffee.com/, for coffee, brewing equipment and more, delivered via mail right to your door.
As a result of the COVID 19 pandemic, Caffe Driade has temporarily suspended service after having run at reduced hours with carry-out and curbside delivery only for a while. Our staff have been furloughed and have had significant decreases in hours and pay in the operational timeframe.
We have set up a Virtual Tip Jar to help supplement the tipped income lost by our dedicated and hard-working team. All of the money raised will be divided up among our staff and go directly to them to help support in this time of financial uncertainty.
This time of social distancing has reminded us more than ever how special our community is, and we are looking forward to the day when we can open up the doors for everyone’s enjoyment once again. Basically, we miss you!
Thank you so much for any support you can offer.
