A Guide to Alpharetta Coffee Shops
Near and dear to the heart of downtown, Valor is one of the most aesthetically gifted coffee shops in Alpharetta, given its warm earthy tones set against minimalistic white walls, vibrant plants, chic furnishings, blue-green accents, amenities for a productive day, and tantalizing aroma of java that’s been roasted in-house. The picturesque decor serves as an accomplice to thoughtfully crafted, rewardingly delicious seasonal beverages, scrumptious pastries, and lite bites.
On Main Street and just off the square, Warm Waves treats visitors to small-batch roasted coffee enhanced by house-made syrups in a beautiful setting dappled with comfy couches, posh armchairs, and touches of greenery. The attention to detail that has gone into designing this cozy abode with a delightful balance of charm and utility makes it an easy go-to for daytime meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, and solo study sessions.
Occupying one gorgeous brick building, The Nest offers guests a lively, downtown atmosphere complemented by breakfast, brunch, and lunch, as well as some award-winning coffee, espresso, tea, and gelato. From gluten-free wraps to vegan and vegetarian options, there’s a flavorful plate for everybody here, plus, should you meander on in at the tail end of an exhaustive work week, feel free to take a load off with a crisp craft beer or fruity mimosa!
To those Instagram connoisseurs of cuteness ever on the prowl for all things pink and pretty, search no further than July Moon, an award-winning Asian bakery and cafe concept featuring bánh mì, bubble tea, java, and desserts. The gem among Alpharetta coffee shops can be found nestled inside The Maxwell – an open-air wellness, shopping, and dining destination that comes complete with lush, park-like landscapes. Settle into a sun-drenched corner and pass the time with a friend, stop by for a quick snack while exploring the area, or grab a sweet treat for that special somebody on your way home.
Snuggled between the storefronts lining an unassuming strip mall, Fuel is a sophisticated hangout with relaxed rustic elements, portrait-adorned walls, wooden tables, swanky brown chairs, and light bulbs strung together overhead. The staff maintains a tempting selection of delectable signature coffee beverages like the Gran Tourismo and Super Veloce, refreshing smoothies, avocado toasts, and mouthwatering sandwiches.
Embodying the essence of a 300-year-old European coffeehouse, venturing through the front door of Cafe Intermezzo transports visitors to a time of elegance and ease. It’s a vacation, a holiday, an ‘intermezzo’, or ‘intermission’ between the busy acts of your life. Rendezvous with a friend, hold a meeting, or simply ponder the moment, the day, or the lifetime in solitude. Each is, and all are, sufficient reasons for being here. On another visit, you might enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a late-night appetizer with a glass of wine or a cocktail. The Beverage Book offers hundreds of choices. “TourGuides” take you through descriptions of nearly sixty pastries.
