The Coffee Revolution’s seasonal beverages impress too, among more tasty choices to choose from, there’s the French Silk Pie Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and Eggnog Latte.
Conveniently situated where I-74 meets 53rd Street, 392 offers guests an artsy atmosphere underscored by chic furnishings, touches of greenery, and a beautiful wall mural reading “Shine Bright Like a Diamond.” The attention to detail that has gone into designing this aesthetically gifted gem with a delightful balance of modern style and utility makes it an easy go-to for long overdue coffee dates or solo study sessions.
Redband Coffee Co.
Occupying an adorable brick cottage a few blocks over from the scenic banks of the Mississippi River, Redband is a popular to-go operation frequented for its delicious coffee beans that have been gas-fired in a unique German roaster on-site, individually prepared drip coffee, New Orleans Style Ice Coffee, and espresso-based drinks. When it comes to food, they have scrumptious pastries and what might just be the best fried egg breakfast sandwich of all-time.
Coffee House Cafe & Goods
Snuggled at the corner base of a beautiful building in the Village of East Davenport, Coffee House treats locals and visitors alike to an adorable abode complete with cozy seating arrangements, potted plants, a corner library/book exchange, the occasional special event, and a fun selection of board games. Consider sampling your way through an artisan latte flight, and should you meander on in at the tail end of an exhaustive work day, take a load off with a crisp craft beer or glass of fine wine.
The Brewed Book

Aroma Coffee & Cafe
Located inside the sprawling Green Thumbers garden center, Aroma serves a huge selection of specialty hot and cold drinks concocted with high-quality coffee beans and syrups amidst cozy digs accentuated by comfy seating, a crackling fireplace, and an adjacent covered terrace dappled with shrubs and flowers.

Iron + Grain Coffee House

This culinary jewel among Davenport coffee shops and cafes can be found tucked away in the Gold Coast/Hamburg historic district, showcasing a timeless elegance accentuated by European flair, white walls with brown trim, works of art, trendy light fixtures, and cute trinkets speckled throughout. The picturesque decor serves as an accomplice to thoughtfully crafted, rewardingly delicious specialty lattes such as the French Vanilla and Cafe Vienna, a divine combination of vanilla, cinnamon, marshmallow, and chocolate.
Main Street Coffee
Nestled in a historic residential area of central Davenport and locally owned for over 25 years, what this beloved drive-through may lack in size, it more than makes up for with fast friendly service and tantalizing seasonal creations like the White Pumpkin Mocha and vanilla hinted Harvest Chai.
