12 Top Coffee Shops with Personality

There's more to your coffee experience than just that cup of jo and these places get that. Here's a peek into twelve shops with ambiances you are sure to love a latte. 


1. Happy Bones New York, NY

A cozy minimalistic shop with clean design and a top-notch flat white, it's a must visit for your next trip to NY.


2. Crema Nashville, TN

A favorite of many Music City visitors, Crema boasts not only a dreamy environment, but also an extremely knowledgable and friendly staff, ethically sourced beans, and on-site roasting. (Not to mention, it's my personal favorite iced coffee!)


3. Diesel Cafe Boston, MA

This Boston staple features an extensive food and coffee menu, pool tables, and all the funky vibes.


4. Houndstooth Austin, TX

Although Houndstooth has only been open for a few years, it has quickly made a name for itself and was even named Austin Chronicle Readers Choice for "Best Coffee" in 2014. In addition to great coffee, Houndstooth baristas periodically offer brewing classes and cupping events for locals.  


5. Downtown Credo Orlando, FL

This non-profit shop holds a special place in our hearts. With amazing handcrafted drinks, a cozy eclectic space, and a commitment to bettering Orlando's community, Credo is the total package. It was also a favorite work spot for Lizzie during the early stages of Market Colors.


6. True and Brave Los Angeles, CA

Locals love this spot that features baristas who know their stuff (but don't make you feel like you don't), a relaxing outdoor seating area, and a rotating selection of tasty treats. 


7. Octane Coffee Atlanta, GA

The Octane space is open, airy, and relaxing--the perfect place to grab a craft coffee beverage and hole up for hours with your laptop. 


8. Boxcar Coffee Roasters Denver, CO

The folks at Boxcar are committed to the entire process of making that perfect cup. They roast their own beans in a German roaster that was built in 1929 and they've developed their own high altitude brewing method called the Boilermakr. 


9. Black Tap Coffee Charleston, SC

Lots of reclaimed wood, natural lighting, and specialty craft drinks like the lavender latte or black julep? Yes, please!


10. Stumptown Coffee Roasters Portland, OR (and other locations)

A friendly staff and simply wonderful ambiance accompany a great coffee or espresso drink. A favorite across the country, it has spread to many states and has several locations inside Ace Hotels


11. Blue Bottle Coffee Brooklyn, NY (and other locations)

Blue Bottle prides itself on only offering customers coffee less than 48 hours of the roaster. They do everything with extreme precision and dedication and boast over 15 locations in California and New York.


12. Oddly Correct Kansas City, MO

This quaint Kansas City favorite serves high-quality nano-roasted brews and handcrafted espresso drinks. And who doesn't love exposed brick walls?
