I would say I love coffee more than your average person and am always on the hunt for a good cup. My parents are Colombian and love their coffee so good coffee always makes me feel at home. Whether it is a drip coffee or a specialty latte, I need my morning cup and then an afternoon pick-me-up. When I travel I look for fun spots with great drinks, atmosphere or both. Here are some of the best coffee shops in Savannah, GA.
The Collins Quarter
The Collins Quarter has two locations, one downtown and one at Forsyth Park. Although this is a restaurant, there is an extensive café drink menu. I saw the spiced lavender mocha recommended multiple places so of course I had to try it. I thought it was going to be overhyped, but I am glad to report that I was wrong. It is perfectly balanced and not too sweet, which was my concern. You can’t beat the location overlooking Forsyth Park. I recommend sitting outside on the patio and taking in the gorgeous scenery while you sip on your drink. Next time I visit I want to try the cinnamon brown sugar latte because that looks superb as well.
Mirabelle is a quaint coffee shop that gives you all the southern feels when you walk up with the whitewashed brick exterior and second floor porch. Not only can you get great coffee here, but also liège waffles. These are not just regular waffles, they are an authentic homage to the street waffles of Belgium. The dough has a unique brioche quality studded with rare pearl sugar. The location in a vintage 1800’s era building located right across from the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, one of the most iconic landmarks in Savannah, is ideal. Mirabelle also offers suites overlooking the cathedral to the east…I mean who wouldn’t want to stay there?
The Paris Market
Architectural Digest recently named The Paris Market “The Most Beautiful Coffee Shop in Georgia” and there is no question as to why. The café makes you feel like you have been transported to Paris with the marble bistro tables and plush velvet seating. You can enjoy a beverage and fresh-baked pastry or homemade sandwich while overlooking Broughton street. This is a charming spot that you don’t want to miss. The market itself is like a well-curated Parisian flea market, featuring unique treasures that have been sourced from locations around the globe.
Savannah Coffee Roasters
First established in 1909, Savannah Coffee Company has quite a longstanding history. It is a great place to grab a bite to eat along with your beverage of choice. There is a lengthy menu offering a wide array of options from quiche to a charcuterie pretzel. A cool experience that is offered every Sunday, Wednesday, and Saturday afternoon at 11:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 1:00 PM, and 2:00 PM is the Libertea High Tea. You can make reservations in advance online here.
