Respite is more than just an ordinary coffee shop.
We truly hope to become a third place where all are welcome; a home away from home and a true community space in the neighborhood. We have worked hard to create a warm, timeless and unique atmosphere. We want you to feel comfortable, whether here by yourself or for a meeting. We have a private room and a semi-private area for groups who want a quieter working space or to sit around and talk or play a game.
Wi-Fi is free to all our patrons.
Respite proudly brews specialty coffee from Carrboro Coffee Roasters, and a large selection of fine teas and pastries. We offer baked goods and small dishes from local food and beverage vendors and create mouthwatering sandwiches that match the quality of our coffee. Whether pastries or snacks, sweet or savory, Respite will keep you happy throughout the day.
We believe strongly in offering quality goods but we also believe in supporting local economies. We work with vendors who are based in the area, and strive to be as sustainable as possible. We are always looking for new vendors in the area who support these aims.
We welcome comments and suggestions on how to better serve the Durham neighborhood!
