A Guide to Abilene Coffee Shops

Mezamiz Coffee House

abilene coffee shops

This hallmark among Abilene coffee shops has been blessing the palates of locals, students, and visitors alike with reasonably priced gourmet java and scrumptious treats for decades. Mezamiz carries a familiar cozy vibe underscored by eclectic furnishings, warm wooden tones, natural sunlight, a private event space, live music performances, and an outdoor patio overlooking Elm Creek.

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 neighborhood cornerstone 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.

Front Porch Coffee Co.

Situated just a few blocks over from downtown, Front Porch specializes in artisan coffee intentionally roasted in-house, homemade fresh baked goods, breakfast/brunch options like their famous bagel bombs, lunch sandwiches, and desserts served all day. The interior features a chic western ambiance, an abundance of seating arrangements, comfy couches, exposed brick walls, a crackling fireplace, black honeycomb tile floors, high exposed ceilings, private rooms for business meetings or small gatherings, as well as a large event space.

Big Country Coffee

Locally owned Big Country has two Abilene coffee shops that would make the perfect addition to your morning routine, the first and original on Buffalo Gap Road is a drive-thru platform with a large outdoor patio, while the second occupies an aesthetically satisfying black and white converted car garage on Treadaway Boulevard and is home to their roasting operation and drive-thru only service. There’s no better or quicker way to get your hands on high-quality coffee and espresso drinks, real fruit smoothies, and lite breakfast bites.

Here’s a fun fact, every customer receives one free sticker per drink they order on the first day of the month, while supplies last! Then, the sticker will be available for purchase for the remainder of the month.

Monks Coffee Shop

Monks has kept the surrounding community caffeinated and energetically moving forward since first opening back in 2006. A step through the adorable storefront nestled amidst downtown’s gorgeous Historic buildings reveals plenty of tabletops for getting work done, art-adorned walls, and a cute little collection of books placed atop the fireplace mantle. The homey decor serves as an accomplice to thoughtfully crafted, rewardingly delicious coffee beverages, as well as scrumptious pastries.

Sunny days guarantee that the patio at this cozy lodge near the outskirts of town will be full of guests enjoying each other’s company. On not-so-sunny days, folks retreat to the comfortable seating inside Mad Coffee, which comes paired with convenient amenities such as free WiFi and charging outlets. Whether in the mood for hot or iced drinks, sweet and savory food options, or a simple afternoon pick-me-up, whatever the case may be, they’ve got you covered.

Moose Mountain Coffee Bar

Residing inside a beautiful brick building in the SoDA District, family-owned and operated Moose Mountain was recently opened and provides guests an expansive timberland-themed setting complete with a wall-mounted moose head, exposed brick walls, wooden floorboards, a comfortably furnished courtyard area illuminated by light bulbs strung overhead, and last but certainly not least, the soul-stirring aroma of coffee that’s been roasted fresh on-site.
