It takes just about 15 minutes to drive from downtown Chapel Hill to a place that’s different from anywhere you’ve been…and might be just what you need right now.
Honeysuckle Tea House, at 8871 Pickards Meadow Road in Chapel Hill, is like a tree house in the sky. Built on shipping containers and other repurposed materials, the open air tea house overlooks Honeysuckle’s farm fields, herb gardens, playgrounds, hammocks, flower gardens and more.
Step inside and you can order beverages hand-crafted from ingredients grown right at Honeysuckle Farm. Choose from teas, smoothies, mead and more. As you enjoy your drink, you can look out over the farm and gardens.
Or you can go outside and enjoy your treats from the deck or picnic tables.
Make sure to explore the farm while you’re there. Right now (in July) blueberries are in season. You can pick a pint of blueberries for $6.
If you donate to The Honeysuckle’s non-profit partner, Unique Places to Save, which invests in and enhances in the places that make our communities unique, you can pick your own flowers.

Conversations in Philosophy (Outside!)
Every Thursday through October 29th, 2020
The Honeysuckle Cafe & Bar is hosting a discussion in philosophy over farm-based beverages. Grab an iced tea made with herbs on the farm or a glass of sparkling mead: When Lemon Met Ginger. They will be meeting outside in the patio area, with folks remaining 6ft apart and wearing masks. Dogs are welcome!
Topics will rotate around philosophical riddles and dilemmas and various philosophers. They will explore creative living and creative loving and how we can live well together as a society. Discussions will be led by Erik “Er Jon” Slavin, a philosopher poet. With a degree in Philosophy and 23 publications, Er Jon is excited to curate introspective and empathetic conversations within our community.
