Summit Coffee Quick Facts


Since the opening of Summit Coffee’s Main Street location in 1998, the coffee shop has seen three different owners, the birth of three new locations, and the addition of a wholesale roastery service. While the business has surely grown, the vision has remained the same: deliver craft goods and quality service in a community-driven environment. Davidson is a town that is built around its neighborhood feel and Summit Coffee has always embodied these ideals while providing people with excellent coffee, craft beer, live music and much more. Stop by and experience Davidson’s unique charm for yourself!



As the original location of Summit Coffee, Main Street Summit supplies visitors with everything one could ask for in a modern coffee shop while preserving the old-school feel of Davidson’s town center. The renovated, 19th-century building that the coffee shop calls home is right in the heart of Davidson and a short walk from anywhere in town. This is a quiet place to get some work done by day and an exciting place to socialize and enjoy the company of friends by night!

Additionally, the kitchen at Summit Coffee has grown tremendously over the last few years and now serves baked goods, appetizers, and small plates at every location.
