Parking: Best bet for parking is on the big Chapel Hill town Parking decks on Franklin street including the Rosemary/Columbia parking lot, and the Wallace parking deck. There is also (paid) street parking. See the town parking website for more info on the various parking options near Franklin street.
Coffee: Closest walkable good cafe is Epilogue books chocolate brews. Further from the university, Caffe Driade and Grey Squirrel coffee are phenomenal but probably require a car.
Food: Franklin Street has a good collection of restaurants both for sandwiches, Mexican food, Indian food, etc.
