“Monorail Espresso is the Seattleite favorite for coffee on the run. Outdoor seating only, rain or shine, and everyone knows your name.” —Candon Michelle
“Lovely local shop with amazing coffee, beautiful latte art, delicious homemade baked goods (including lots of gluten-free and vegan options), and an emphasis on community. They’re also really supportive of the local scene — they brew local coffee and display artwork by local artists.” —Rachel Syens
“They are local, have a great environment, fantastic munchies, and a large variety of merch for the coffee fanatic in the family. They also have the best damn coffee in the city.” —leew7
“Great coffee and awesome atmosphere; the baristas are great and will make almost anything for you!” —savannahh4660873ea
“A café miel to die for, coziness abound, and they roast their own. I moved across town, and can’t get there often anymore, but it’ll always be my No. 1.” —jinxie
“Rise Up! Coffee in Easton, Maryland, is the best place to go. It’s a coffeehouse and a roaster all in one. One-of-a-kind artwork lines the walls and you can enjoy a cup while watching the beans roast. The food is amazing, the people are great, and the coffee is the best there is.” —elizabethb4d9d7f66f
“JC Beans Coffee in Dana Point, California, is a small hidden gem. It’s located in a small surf town on the coast in Southern California. It’s definitely a spot all the locals know about and go to. When a Starbucks opened up two doors down and threatened the coffee shop, they stayed open because their coffee is so good and the staff is so incredible. The pastries here are also to die for, and all homemade!!” —rcwholesalers
“Joe Bean Coffee Roasters in Rochester, New York!!! The best atmosphere and staff.” —christineb493cbd0f1
“Smokey Row in either Pleasantville, Pella, Oskaloosa, or Des Moines, Iowa. I prefer the Pleasantville location mainly because it’s the original and in my hometown. They have fantastic coffee that they roast next door to the coffee shop. It’s the classic small town place, where everyone knows everyone, with such a rich history. I highly recommend it.” —Morgan Schrader
