Us caffeine addicts have to stick together, which is why we’ve curated a locals guide to coffee shops around the 850. Each of these shops has their own unique character and distinct vibe. Sip with us through the 850!
Panama City & Panama City Beach
The Press holds a special place in the hearts of Panama City residents. Following Hurricane Michael, the founders of The Press wanted to fuel the rebuilding of the city, and what better way than with delicious coffee? At the Press, you can find a variety of specialty drinks. One of our go-to’s is the Almond Joy Cold Brew. In addition to coffee, they offer smoothies, crepes, and other breakfast items. The coffee flights, which change with the seasons, are a must-try. They recently opened a location on the beachside.
If you’re ever in the mood for coffee with a side of Jazz music, Caffé Del Mundo is the place for you! The captivating atmosphere makes it not just a coffee spot, but an immersive experience. Their unique flavors keep guests coming back for more. If you’re not in the mood for coffee, the café serves wine, food, and more. We recommend opting for the award-winning Cuban. It will not disappoint!
Amavida has become a household name around the 850. On top of their three coffee shop locations, Amavida Coffee Roasters sources its coffee out to a variety of other shops. (Many of which are included in this blog!) When you visit an Amavida shop we recommend trying the Sea Oat Latte or the Salted Caramel Cold Brew! Along with coffee, they also offer bakery and breakfast items.
Panama City Beach
Coffee curated with an organic lifestyle in mind? Yes, please! FINNS has mastered the concept of health-conscious coffee. They use organic homemade syrups and offer organic milk options. Their Cold Brew Coffee with Madagascar Vanilla syrup is a simple but effective way to satisfy your caffeine addiction. FINNS also offers a variety of acai bowls, smoothies, and other light breakfast items. We suggest grabbing a coffee to-go and enjoying a beautiful, beach sunrise right across the street!
Panama City Beach
The Pour takes their motto “coffee + community” very seriously. The Pour is a non-profit that aims to merge their love of coffee with their passion of improving the community. Each cup of coffee makes an impact. When you go we suggest trying the Access 44 Latte. It’s the perfect blend of white chocolate and salted caramel. In addition to coffee, they offer a selection of bakery and breakfast options.
Kith and Kin Coffee puts heavy emphasis on being a local spot. They pride themselves on supporting local artists and providing their customers with locally sourced coffee. Kith and Kin has truly perfected the classics. They also offer seasonal specials that are always a must-try. If you need a snack to go along with your beverage they offer baked goods. When they stop serving coffee, you can still hang around and enjoy an assortment of beers and wines.
Looking for a casual coffee spot that provides options that are simple, yet refined? Well, then 2 Birds Coffee + Café is the place for you! The family-owned business focuses on making just really good food and coffee- nothing complicated. The Cuban Espresso will wake you right up. Their fancy toast, breakfast staples, and sammies are all things you have to try for yourself.
We really got lucky finding out about Lucky Goat Coffee. One of their specialties is their Cold Brew. The Lucky Bomb Cold Brew, a combination of vanilla, cream, and espresso, makes early mornings that much more bearable. The wraparound porch earns this place bonus points. The atmosphere and ambiance is something you have to experience for yourself.
It’s no secret that location is everything, and Fosko is no exception. Located in the heart of downtown Pensacola, Fosko is the perfect spot to get your caffeine fix. Their extensive coffee menu is guaranteed to have something for everyone. Their coffee pairs well with any of their signature crepes. Our favorite combo is the Iced Honey Latte and the Fromage Crepe.
