COLORADO: Crema Coffee House in Denver
CONNECTICUT: Rumors European Cafe in Danbury
“[Three] words: vanilla bean latte. Love this coffee and this cozy coffee place! Prices are comparable to Starbucks with a really unique vibe. The baristas were super accommodating and really went out of their way to make recommendations. Ciara and Suyane and they were spot on. Very sweet girls. The snacks like the gluten free cookies and the regular scones looked really good but we didn’t get any. They say they are baked fresh daily.” — Yelp user Anne M.
DELAWARE: Drifting Grounds in Bethany Beach
“You: at the beach with your friends SPFed to the 40s. Now it’s time to go on a town safari in search of java … look no further. Drifting Grounds is here for you. Come in, chill out, get some coffee and work on the puzzle in the corner. Or read a book. Bring a friend — or don’t. The Bolero gas station right outside belies the cozy interior with aqua walls decorated in art available for purchase. Did I mention the used books for sale? Dine in and drink your tea from their collection of tea cups and coffee mugs-because let’s face it-coffee tastes better in porcelain cups than paper cups, and you’re helping the environment. Is there nothing you won’t do to make the world a better place? Staff = lovely. Your vacation is loving you and you are loving that you came here to have a cup of coffee, you are a rock star!” — Yelp user Petunia T.

Ordered the breakfast bowl with both eggs AND grits. Very cozy and yummy! If we lived here this would definitely be our place to hang! Wish I stayed one more day in Savannah just so I could have another breakfast here!” — Yelp user Giselle B.
HAWAII: Heavenly Hawaiian Farms in Holualoa
“Great place to visit on the Big Island. They let you try all their coffees free of charge. There is also a free tour where they kindly show how the Kona coffee is made.

MINNESOTA: Five Watt Coffee in Minneapolis
“When I am looking to splurge on a deliciously handcrafted beverage, Five Watt is my No. 1 pick. Plus, bonus: Holy hottie hangout!

OHIO: Scotty’s Cafe in Columbus
