Las Vegas is best known for its glittering nightlife and exciting parties. But this dynamic city does not just come alive after dark. From fabulous shopping to one of a kind outdoor adventures, you can have your fill of fun in Las Vegas any time of the day.
And when you feel like taking a break from all the activities, you can always head to one of the city’s numerous coffee shops and get a taste of what the city’s growing coffee culture is all about.
In Las Vegas, even your coffee shop experience is unique and one of a kind. Here’s a list of the places you simply have to try.
Mothership Coffee Roasters
2708 N Green Valley Parkway
Mothership Coffee Roasters serves specialty coffee using beans from various coffee-growing parts of the world, including Peru, Brazil, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Indonesia, and more. Mothership prepares your coffee exactly the way you want, although they hold back a little on the sugar and do not offer the “typical American sizes.” Opened in 2008, this local roaster also supplies their coffee to several shops and restaurants in the city and beyond, but at their charming location at the back of Ferguson’s Downtown, you can enjoy your freshly brewed cup with a delectable treat from their pastry counter.
The Writer’s Block
519 S. 6th Street, Suite 100
More than just a coffee shop, The Writer’s Block is also a bookshop, a young writers’ workshop, and an artificial bird sanctuary. It’s the perfect place to go to enjoy a good read while sipping on a double espresso or a cappuccino, or even a cup of tea or a smoothie. The shop hosts various events for aspiring and experienced writers, as well as for book lovers, including book club meetings, writing workshops, book sales, and more. It is also home to hundreds of one-of-a-kind artificial birds that shop visitors may adopt.
Vesta Coffee Roasters
1114 S. Casino Center Boulevard #1
Vesta is the place to go if you’re serious about your coffee. Arguably the best coffee shop in Las Vegas, this popular hangout has an impressive selection of coffee varieties from different regions around the world, including exotic single origin beans that you can’t find in many other places. They also feature their own specialty blends, combining a variety of flavors like fruits, chocolate, and spices with select coffee beans. They also serve lattes and teas, as well as a tempting menu of toasts, sandwiches, pastries, and others to go perfectly with your beverage.
3130 E. Sunset Road Suite A
Sunrise Coffee is the oldest independent coffee shop in Las Vegas, and has become a part of the daily routine for many in the city. Remote workers, UNLV students, workers on their breaks—everyone comes to Sunrise Coffee for the classic cappuccino or americano, latte, frappe, or pour over coffee, made from single-origin, organic, Fair Trade beans. And for those looking for something different, Sunrise Coffee also serves tea lattes, herbal teas, and loose leaf teas. The shop also bakes its own breads and pastries, plus offers vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free options on the menu.
Makers & Finders
1120 South Main Street
2120 Festival Plaza Drive #140
This Latin inspired hub is also one of the best places to eat in Las Vegas. In addition to excellent coffee, Makers & Finders also serves a full menu of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus beer, wine, and cocktails. It’s no surprise that their two locations — one in the Las Vegas Arts District and the other in Summerlin — are always packed. They’re two of the few places where you can enjoy pour over coffee, french press, or cold brew with a Cuban sandwich or empanada. And if you’re looking for a truly Latin coffee experience, order the Cafe con Leche, which is their house coffee served with condensed steam milk.
5808 Spring Mountain Road, Suite 104
Located in Chinatown, Gabi Cafe is known for more than its single-origin coffees, high quality teas, and signature drinks. It also boasts a beautiful design inspired by the end of Korea’s Chosun Dynasty, when modern Western influences have made their way into the traditional Oriental style. And on top of all these, you can also enjoy delicious cakes and pastries from the Gabi Cake bakery to go with your coffee. Not to be missed are the different varieties of crepe cakes, including tiramisu, nutella, and rainbow crepe cakes.
1126 Fremont Street
PublicUS is a canteen type restaurant and coffee shop in Fremont, the original site of The Strip. The restaurant is known for its large seating area with an energetic vibe. They roast their own coffee, bake their own breads and pastries, and have a full breakfast and brunch menu, with many of the dishes infused with Hawaiian flavors. PublicUs’s vibrant but cozy feel makes it the perfect place to get work done for the day.
