  The Third Place Art Events

Welcome to The Third Place, located at 1811 Glenwood Avenue in the Five Points area of Raleigh – a cozy and eclectic coffeehouse.  Enjoy coffee, breakfast, sandwiches, vegetarian fare and yummy desserts surrounded by rich red Oriental rugs, warmly hued walls and exotic glass lanterns suspended from the antique tin ceiling.  A full menu, with many items made right in the shop, is available from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.

About The Third PlaceWeekdays from 6 a.m. to 12 a.m., and weekends, from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m., mingle with devoted regular customers, businesspeople, students, urbanites and families. Relax in comfortable seating accented with plush Kilim pillows and enjoy artwork by local artists or music by acoustic musicians.

The name, The Third Place, comes from the book written by Ray Oldenburg in which he celebrates the “third places” in our lives – after home and work, these are the places where people can relax in good company on a regular basis.  We invite you to make us your “third place”!
