Top 15 Coffee Shops in Orlando

August 2, 2019 Hanny 6 min read 5 Comments

If there’s one thing I love about the City Beautiful, it is the abundant amount of coffee shops.

There’s coffee shops all over Orlando and though many of them are good, I do have quite a few favorites, so here are my top 15 coffee shops in Orlando. 

15 Coffee Shops in Orlando

1. Zanzibar Coffee House

If the name Zanzibar sounds familiar, that’s because it’s a region in Tanzania. This coffee house not only has an African name, but it also has some neat tribal masks that hang on the wall.

The atmosphere is very chill and the coffee is just as good. Located in Longwood, it’s not far from Cranes Roost, the Altamonte Mall and has a great view of the Longwood Historic District.


2. La Kuma Coffee

Another good find in Longwood, this beautiful coffee shop is surrounded by trees. This coffee shop is a place away from the city and the location makes it feel as though you are in the forest somewhere.

Aside from the location, the inside is decorated with the cutest decorations. The word ‘Kuma’ is a Japanese word for bear, which is what you will see on the coffee cups.

Some of the items on the menu are Japanese, which is awesome since I don’t get the chance to try many Japanese things.

They have some delicious desserts such as the Matcha Mousse. The atmosphere is very tranquil and the place overall is a complete getaway from the city.


3. CFS Coffee

Coffee shops in Orlando

Located in Winter Park, this coffee shop is a great place to work from. Not only do they have a comfortable environment, but the decor is very Travel oriented. 

The coffee is also very good and the environment is delightful. I spent a good four hours working from this location.


4. Deeply Coffee

Coffee Shops in Orlando

This wonderful coffee shop is located in the downtown area, but it’s definitely worth the visit. The environment is very chill and also a great spot to work from.

Although, I did not try their coffee, I did try their Capri Sun, which is amazing! (Who says Capri suns are for kids??), their delightful drink is full of flavor and perfect for any summer day.


5. Barnie’s Coffee & Tea

There’s several locations in Orlando, but the one I like is the one in Winter Park. The place is not only located in a beautiful part of Winter Park, but the ambience is delightful – The view, the people, the decor. This place is just lovely and also a great spot to work from.

The coffee is just as good! I had one of their secret menu items, which was the Lumberjack (I’m pretty sure that was the name of it!). It was this sweet, iced coffee that made my time there pleasant.


6. Palate Coffee Brewery

Located in Sanford, this coffee shop is one of the coziest I’ve been to so far! The staff is very welcoming and there’s so many options as to where to sit – at the table, on the sofa or at the booth.

Aside from that the staff are volunteers and all proceeds go to the abolishment of human trafficking. How awesome is that?? The coffee is also great and there’s plenty of flavors to chose from!


7. Foxtail Coffee

Another one with various locations. I’ve been to two different locations, but my favorite is the one in Altamonte Springs.

Although, I have never worked from this location before, I do enjoy entering the coffee shop as they have some neat decorations. It’s a very laid back coffee shop, which is what I tend to look for when going to coffee shops. I usually get their Matcha Latte, which is one of my favorites!


8. The Heavy

This place isn’t really known as a coffee shop, but they do sell coffee! This is one of those places that does it all – they sell plants, decor, floral, coffee, other drinks and so much more. I could literally spend hours at this location, just shopping away while I sip on coffee.


9. Drunken Monkey Coffee Bar

This was one of my first coffee shops in Orlando! What I love about this place is how unique it is, not just the name, but the whole place is quirky and just fun to visit. You’ll see people on their laptops and people just hanging out. This place also offers some yummy vegan food and of course coffee!


10. Stardust Video & Coffee

I used to go to this coffee shop all the time, while still in college. This was one of those places I would go to study, while drinking coffee (I mostly drink Mocha).

What makes this place so unique is that they have a collection of videos/books as well as a photo booth. The decor is very interesting and the atmosphere is very relaxed. It’s definitely a local favorite as you will see many with their laptops there.


11. New General

Coffee Shops in Orlando

This is such a great place to spend some time in. The moment I walked in, I saw people on their laptops, people eating and some just enjoying a nice cup of coffee.

The whole place is beautiful! Full of plants inside and outside of the building. They also sell shirts, some nice kitchen items and a bunch of other neat items.

Coffee Shops in Orlando

I had a delicious Matcha, which was sweetened with honey. You get the option to sweeten it with honey, maple or sugar.

They also have a variety of food and sweets. Aside from that, there’s different areas to sit in – couch, stools, outside or at a long table.


12. Qreate Coffee + Studio

Even though, I’ve only been here once, I like the atmosphere in Qreate Coffee! This place is such a unique space, where not only do you get to enjoy coffee, but you can also use their studio.

There’s a bunch of Travel photos hanging on the walls, which were taken by the owner, who is also a photographer. The drinks are tasty and also very beautiful to look at as well.

There’s plenty of space inside and it’s such a fun space with the studio!


13. Craft & Common

Coffee Shops in Orlando

This place can be a little hard to find, if you’re using a GPS (mine went a little crazy), but once you find it, you’ll know where you need to go next time.

Upon entering, the decor pops out – the plants hanging from the ceilings and on the walls, the beautiful wall meant for photos and the lights.

Coffee Shops in Orlando

I ended up ordering a sausage and cheese sandwich, which was absolutely delicious on their pretzel bun. I also ordered an iced Mocha, which was perfect. Aside from the food, this is also a great spot to work from.


14. Lineage Coffee Roasting

There’s two locations for Lineage, but the one I went to was on Mills/50. This location has plenty of parking, but when it gets packed it can be hard to find parking.

Lineage is very simple with their decor yet they have a nice space. This also seems to be a very popular place as many were in there with laptops.

I haven’t tried many items on their menu, but I did like the drink I got, which was of course a latte.


15. Downtown CREDO

Credo has a few places in Orlando, but the one I’ve been to is the one in College Park and North Quarter.

The atmosphere is very chill in both places and it’s also a great spot to work from. I also like that you can name your own price. That’s right, you pay what you want to pay for the coffee.

Not only that, but they are committed to inspiring the pursuit of meaning, impact and community.

CREDO is very different from all the other coffee shops with their own pay what you want system and provides a comfortable space for all.

There’s plenty of good spots for coffee in Orlando, but so far these have been my favorite spots for Matcha and Mocha Lattes, and to get some work done.

I still have quite a bit more to try, but for now these are my top 15 coffee shops in Orlando.

    Thanks for the post, Hanny. The matcha mousse from La Kuma Coffee looks delicious. Also, the Zanzibar Coffee House reminds me of a place I used to go in Melbourne. Looks very relaxing. Do you have any shots of inside the Drunk Monkey Coffee Bar? I’m curious to see what it looks like inside.

      Hi Marty! Thank you for stopping by 🙂 I, unfortunately, do not have any shots of the inside of the Drunken Monkey Coffee. The place is very relaxing and cozy though. I may eventually update once I’m able to go back.
