Best Coffee in Savannah Savannah, GA
If you’re near the Cathedral:
It’s not the largest cafe, but you’ll want to sit outside if the weather permits to take in the view of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist. In addition to coffee, they also serve authentic Belgian waffles.
If you’re near Chippewa Square
If you’re looking for coffee but you also want great food, I recommend the short trip to The Collins Quarter. My favorite coffee is the lavender mocha, a mix of rich mocha with light and fresh lavender. If you want a quick coffee to go, they also have a walk-up window on Bay Street.
Located next to the famous Chippewa square where Forest Gump waited on the bus, Gallery Expresso is a twist between French-bohemian style in the center of the city. For something sweet try the White Chocolate Cappuccino.
If you’re in Midtown
I studied here often during PT school because it has Tex Mex for when I needed energy. It’s a SCAD favorite and filled with eclectic fashion and artwork. Every Tuesday, there is an intimate performance by local artists in the outdoor garden and on Saturdays, they offer smores to roast in the firepit.
If you’re on Broughton Street
This is a sister store to Foxy Loxy Cafe located in the middle of Broughton Street surrounded by shops and great food. I always order the Mexican Mocha with habanero and cinnamon.
If you’re on Liberty Street
This century-old Coffee shop is the oldest thriving coffee business in Savannah, so they clearly know what they’re doing. You can view the fresh roasting process and enjoy authentic French croissants.
If you’re looking for the prettiest coffee shop in Savannah
Voted the prettiest coffee shop in Georgia, The Paris Market is a must-see on Broughton Street. It’s the South’s well-curated Parisian flea market, filled with whimsical home, jewelry, and gifting treasures. Browse their hand-picked selection while snacking on a macaron from March De Macaron and lavender latte. Don’t miss taking in their amazing window displays before leaving!
If you’re near Forsyth Park:
Known as “The Bean” this coffee shop is located across the street from the South end of Forsyth Park. This is the only vegetarian restaurant in Savannah and serve organic fair trade coffee. If you’re looking for gluten-free or vegan options, you will find it here! I love their frozen vanilla latte on a hot summer day.
This non-profit business cultivates a community similar to your favorite local pub. It’s a great place to meet up with a group of friends or small group as it’s one of the larger coffee spots in Savannah.
