A Guide to Redlands Coffee Shops
Near and dear to the heart of town, Slow Bloom is one of the most aesthetically gifted coffee shops in Redlands, given its retro architectural elements, warm earthy tones set against minimalistic white walls, chic furnishings, golden hour vibes, and tantalizing aroma of gourmet java. The attention to detail that has gone into designing this adorable 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.
Nestled in the Mountain Grove Shopping Center, The Meek House offers guests a bright bohemian ambiance underscored by wooden tabletops, posh armchairs, touches of greenery, and amenities for a productive day. The picturesque decor serves as an accomplice to thoughtfully crafted, rewardingly delicious coffee beverages made using house-roasted beans.
Whether you’d like to settle into a cozy corner and appreciate the company of loved ones over a steamy cup of joe, snag a window seat and flip through the pages of your favorite novel as the world passes on by, peruse through a beautiful assortment of handcrafted leather goods, or grab a soul-stirring latte before exploring the surrounding cityscape, whatever the case may be, Dirtbag has got you covered.
Snuggled amongst the gorgeous storefronts lining downtown, Molinos provides patrons a refined yet relaxed environment boasting white brick walls, shimmering chandeliers, ample seating arrangements, the best Cuban coffee, and exceptional brunch fare ranging from hot breakfast sandwiches to fresh baked goods to nutritious acai bowls.
Located on the breezy corner of Barton and Alabama, Stell is a beloved hangout known for its warmly familiar cabin-esque interior, wood-paneled walls and ceilings, framed photographs, windows that let the sunshine pour on through, speedy WiFi, mouthwatering toasted sandwiches, and dreamy outdoor patio perfect for dining al fresco with friends. Should you meander on in at the tail end of an exhaustive work day, feel free to take a load off with a crisp craft beer or glass of fine wine.
This recent addition to the ever-budding index of Redlands coffee shops serves fresh coffee that’s been diligently roasted on-site amidst cozy digs accentuated by comfy seating arrangements, remote work accommodations, and fun community-building events including the occasional paint-and-sip wine tasting. Though the friendly folks behind Landmark’s counter are more than capable of crafting tasty takes on your usual morning ritual, consider trying one of their flavorful seasonal drinks like the Maple Leaf Latte and Minter Mocha.
If you truly love and appreciate the art of java, search no further than Wild Goose, which has been a center for coffee culture in Southern Califonia since 2008 and is passionate about intentionally roasting the world’s finest beans on-site. Furthermore, they have a cute little lounge area featuring several tabletops, neat merch, and a wall mural depicting palm trees swaying with what must be the San Bernardino mountain range in the background. It’s also worth noting, for every pound of coffee Wild Goose sells, whether retail or wholesale, they purchase 10 lbs of food for a local food bank.
