Community Involvement

The Refectory Cafe has been part of the Durham community since opening on Duke’s campus in 2005. We are staffed by people from all over the world who have chosen to make Durham their home, and we believe that it’s an incredible place to live and work.

Our mission is to offer healthy, hot, homemade, local food in a welcoming environment, and we believe that environment encompasses all of Durham and the Triangle. As a result, we partner with various community organizations that are working hard to make the Bull City the very best it can be.
