Where to Drink Really Good Coffee in Miami

View as Map

Miami certainly doesn't lack in coffee. You don't need to drive more than five minutes to get your cafecito fill at your favorite ventanita. But what if you're looking for a place to sit down and enjoy your brew? Or want something a bit more creamy or frothy? Sure, there is always that place that ends with "bucks," but these days Miami has come upon a coffee revolution all of its own with local brewers and coffee houses putting their unique touch on the local coffee scene. Below are the top spots to get your (caffeine) buzz on.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Panther Coffee

Copy Link
2390 NW 2nd Ave
Miami, FL 33127
(305) 677-3952
Visit Website
As the most notable coffee establishment to come out of Miami, Panther Coffee is arguably the shop that ushered in South Florida’s new coffee wave. Their ever-popular original outpost in Wynwood is both an artist sanctuary and a casual business spot for trendy Miamians. No matter the crowd, the demand is high for this coffee brewer who supplies coffee beans to every prominent restaurant in town.

2. Eternity Coffee Roasters

Copy Link
117 SE 2nd Ave.
Miami, FL 33131
(305) 609-4981
Nowadays it isn’t uncommon to find places roasting their own coffee beans, but to farm them as well? That’s the mission behind Eternity Coffee Roasters who serve coffee made from beans grown from their family’s coffee farm in Colombia, along with other hard-to-find beans from around the world, all of which are roasted in-house.

3. Alaska Coffee Roasting Co.

Copy Link
13130 Biscayne Blvd
North Miami, FL 33181
(786) 332-4254
This Aventura coffee shop may have its roots in Alaska (originally founded there in 1993), but is now very much part of the South Florida bean scene. The shop roasts all its coffee beans on site to ensure the perfect cup. Bonus factor? They also have a wood-fire oven so you can get a a pizza with your coffee. May sound odd, but isn’t that combo what got most of us through college? [Photo via randompixels.blogspot.com]

4. Pasión del Cielo Coffee Coral Gables

Copy Link
100 Giralda Ave
Coral Gables, FL 33134
(305) 448-0007
Visit Website
Not only can you choose how you like your coffee at Pasión del Cielo, but this shop takes it a step further by allowing you to choose which bean and country you’d prefer it from with varieties from all around the world. The organic beans are displayed against the wall with detailed descriptions of each — so you can find exactly what type of brew you’re looking for.

5. Juan Valdez Café

Copy Link
101 NE 2nd Ave
Miami, FL
This coffee store named after the iconic character Juan Valdez is an ode to Colombian coffee, and rightfully so as the store is owned by the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation. While the store may only serve Colombian coffee, that doesn’t mean it lacks in options. It sells several single bean varieties from the different regions in the country. For the real coffee buffs the store offers coffee “cupping” sessions (think wine tasting, but for coffee) and food pairings for the coffee to help compliment the flavors of each bean.

6. Cafe at The Bookstore in the Grove

Copy Link
3390 Mary St, #166
Coconut Grove, FL 33133
(305) 443-2855
Visit Website
One of the last remaining brick-and-mortar bookstores in Miami also has a rather extensive cafe and restaurant that is a favorite amongst Grove dwellers. At the cafe located in the entrance of the bookstore, guests can sip on locally brewed coffee and nibble of fresh baked pastries, along with enjoying BOGO mimosas every weekend — helping make a trip to the bookstore much more exciting.

7. Bsweet

Copy Link
20 NE 41st St
Miami, FL 33137
(305) 918-4453
This surprisingly cozy, cottage-esque coffee shop tucked away in Miami’s swanky Design District neighborhood is a favorite amongst the fashion-set and locals alike. Along with its freshly brewed coffee the cafe also has pastries made daily by owner Thomas Worhach, who happened to be named one of the “Top 10 Pastry Chefs” in the world by Chocolatier Magazine.

8. Cafe Curuba

Copy Link
2626 Ponce de Leon Blvd
Coral Gables, FL 33134
(786) 703-9183
No matter if you’re in a rush or looking for a leisurely cup o’ joe, Cafe Curubua will have the answer to your caffeine needs. The newly opened cafe serves up both on-the-go options with coffee made every 20 minutes to french press coffee served in fancy carafes in addition to a “carefully curated” selection of Jojo Teas and small bites.
