A Guide to Santa Clarita Coffee Shops
Nestled inside The Master’s University, a biblical liberal arts institution, Trophy is one of the most aesthetically gifted coffee shops in Santa Clarita, given its warm earthy tones set against minimalistic white brick walls, chic furnishings, vibrant plants, blue patterned tile wrapped front counter, great big garage door windows that open up and let the sunshine pour on through, 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.
A stone’s toss from the Santa Clara River, Bodhi Leaf offers guests a warmly familiar atmosphere underscored by crafty seating arrangements, wood-paneled wall accents, and accommodations for remote work. The homey decor serves as an accomplice to thoughtfully crafted, rewardingly delicious coffee beverages made using beans diligently roasted on-site, scrumptious pastries, and bomb breakfast burritos.
Near and dear to the heart of town, Way Station provides patrons a relaxed yet refined culinary experience accentuated by brunch dishes ranging from plates filled end to end with all the usual breakfast fixings we all crave to heavenly pancakes and french toast. Settle into a cozy corner and appreciate the company of loved ones over a steamy cup of joe, dine al fresco on the lovely sidewalk terrace, or grab a high-quality pick-me-up before exploring the surrounding area.
What this beautiful drive-through across the street from Old Orchard Park may lack in size, it more than makes up for with wholesome hospitality, photogenic appeal, efficient service that’ll have you back on the road and headed toward your final destination in no time, and last but certainly not least, soul-stirring seasonal drinks like the Honey Cinnamon Miel Latte.
Peet’s maintains a reliable work and gathering environment that features tables to sit down at and stay awhile, there’s also a pleasant outdoor patio shaded by umbrellas. The founder, Alfred Peet, wasn’t trying to start a coffee revolution when he set up shop in Berkeley back in 1966. He just thought Americans deserved a real cup of coffee.
Five decades later, his lone store has since blossomed into 200, each holding true to his vision: sourcing directly from the world’s finest estates, hand roasting to order in small batches, and making sure every cup is brewed as fresh and full-flavored as possible.
