Open Eye Café

Opened in 1999 in the space now occupied by Neal’s Deli, Open Eye Cafe was the first best espresso bar in town and quickly became known “Carrboro’s Living Room.” Offering a full selection of wine, beer, and teas, it now occupies the adjacent and much larger space on the corner of S. Greensboro St. in Carrboro. Many championship baristas have worked at Open Eye throughout the years.

Caffè Driade

A beautiful European style shop, nestled in the woods near the Chapel Hill greenway (and accessible by the Bolin Creek greenway trail) on the east side of town. It has provided Chapel Hill with the best cappuccino available, as well as a selection of whole leaf tea, wine, beer, and  baked goods for 26 years in an unmatched outdoor setting with multiple patios, gardens and wooded lawn.
