A Guide to Provo Coffee Shops
Peace on Earth Coffee
Near and dear to the heart of downtown, Peace on Earth is an aesthetically-gifted hallmark among Provo coffee shops, by way of its modern rustic ambiance, warm earthy tones set against minimalistic white and exposed brick walls, abundant seating arrangements, touches of greenery, art displays, karaoke nights, and ability to serve craft cocktails with the purchase food.
While a better environment for productivity would be difficult to imagine, aside from optimum functionality, the attention to detail that has gone into designing this space with a delightful balance of charm and utility makes it an easy go-to for daytime meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, or solo study sessions.
A step through the front door of this picture-perfect 500 Street storefront just off the main drag reveals an enchanting atmosphere underscored by vintage bohemian vibes, wooden furnishings and trim, earnestly stocked bookshelves, eclectic art pieces that can be found speckled throughout, lush verdure, an expansive upstairs loft area, and amenities for getting some work done. The highly instagrammable decor serves as an accomplice to intimately roasted, rewardingly delicious coffee beverages, as well as organic fruit, cold cereals, avocado toast, and other lite bites.
Whether you’d like to sink into a couch or armchair and appreciate the company of loved ones over a steamy cup of joe, set up near the window and flip through the pages of your favorite novel as the world passed on by, or silently work amidst the wholesome comfort of an accommodating neighborhood gathering place, whatever the case may be, Java Junkie has got you covered.
Standing tall against a backdrop of scenic mountain views, this adorable little drive-through is the perfect grab & go stop to add to your morning routine. That being said, along with a range of caffeinated beverages with flavor profiles ranging from milky way to Mexican spice and chocolate to coconut, they’ve got scrumptious baked goods.
Juice ‘n Java
Juice ‘n Java is a petite, neat, and relaxed hangout that has been treating Provo locals and visitors alike for over two decades now. The menu features creative coffee and espresso beverages, nutrient-packed smoothies, fresh-squeezed juices, and teas.
Dutch Bros Coffee
Founded in Southern Oregon in 1992 by dairy farmer brothers Dane and Travis Boersma, Dutch Bros. Coffee is the country’s largest privately held, drive-thru coffee company. For those java purists bewildered that I could include as large a chain as Dutch on this list of Provo coffee shops, please remember, they’re not very common elsewhere in the United States, so for visitors or newcomers, this energy-rich oasis in the sun will undoubtedly prove a sweet treat.
From early mornings to late nights, some heavenly beverages you may spot being served out of their pull-up window include specialty coffee drinks, smoothies, freezes, teas, and Blue Rebel energy drinks that customers can infuse with their favorite flavors.
Every cup of Dutch Bros. coffee is handcrafted – roasted by hand in the Pacific Northwest, blended by hand, and then ground and pulled by hand, ristretto-style. One more observation worth noting, their employees are relentlessly kind, attentive, and cheerful, at all times, never failing to look like they’re having the moment of their lives while on shift; super fun vibes!
