Who doesn’t love a good coffee bar? My gal Tyler + I live for a warm cup of joe. Living in a larger city, there seems to be one on every corner! If you are a super coffee fan, you know the feeling of walking out of a joint with bitter coffee. What a let down! It is so important to locate your favorites + play them on repeat.
Some of my favorite coffee spots are hidden away, while some are super popular. Scroll down to learn about 3 of my absolute favorites!
Muddy’s Bake Shop + Coffee
Muddy’s, located in the heart of midtown at 585 Cooper St, Memphis, TN 38104, is the perfect place for a hot cup of coffee. Not far from the UofM, Muddy’s is a happening little shop, that serves students + business folk alike. My favorite time to visit Muddy’s is definitely around the holidays. I love love love their Peppermint Latte. On a regular visit, however, I enjoy their Mocha Latte + a “Prozac” cupcake (chocolate cake with chocolate icing). My sweet T orders “Strawberry Fields Forever”, which is quite funny to hear him order, being a 6″2 tall guy. *hehehe*
City & State
City & State is an absolute must-visit! I have never felt so rustic but minimalist at the same time. The shop is very modernly adorned, with a mural outside–featured in the picture above. They even have an outside water fountain for pups! *heart eyes* While my favorite order from C&S is their hot coco–literally the best—T loves their cup of joe! City & State is also located near the University, at 2625 Broad Ave, Memphis, TN 38112.
Coffee goes best with….BREAKFAST, of course. Cafe Eclectic is a classic in Memphis + offers the best breakfast & brunch menus. A cup of their regular + a waffle go down great, before heading over for early morning grocery shopping at Miss Cordelia’s. Located at 111 Harbor Town Square, Memphis, TN 38103, this little coffee shop gives me life on weekend mornings + being so close to my house, this is probably my favorite. Any chance to stay near home on the island is a go for me!
I could share many more coffee bars, but these are my 3 favorites. Planning a trip to Memphis soon + need restaurant suggestions? Send me an email + I’d be glad to point you in the right direction! 🙂
