Great company, a gorgeous place to stay, acclaimed local restaurants, and plenty of fun activities are the most important checklist items of any vacation. For many, however, knowing where to find that perfect cup of Joe is just as essential as making reservations! We’ve compiled just a few of our favorite coffee shops in Fort Lauderdale so you don’t have to waste time searching. For more local insight, be sure to reference our complimentary Fort Lauderdale Travel Guide! It’s packed with our best restaurant, activity, and attraction recommendations.
4 of the Best Coffee Shops in Fort Lauderdale
Fort Lauderdale is full of fantastic coffee shops, but The Alchemist is one of our favorites. Though this comfy cafe’s atmosphere and sunny, plant-covered patio attract visitors, The Alchemist’s coffee-brewing process is the star of the show. Carefully chosen beans combine with purified water and a proprietary brew setup to create a truly enjoyable cup. Pair your iced coffee with a low-carb, open-faced sandwich (that the staff refer to as a “slicer”). There are also plenty of gluten-free desserts to enjoy here!
Circle House Coffee
Circle House Coffee is the place to be if you’re craving some superb coffee or wine. If you find yourself in downtown Fort Lauderdale’s Flagler Village neighborhood, roll through the drive-thru or hang out and sip for a while. The vibe here is artsy-chic and the drinks are all handcrafted with love! We recommend trying one of “Fireman Derek’s Pies” and the popular House Latte.
BREW Urban Cafe
Everyone’s talking about FAT Village, Fort Lauderdale’s newest and most exciting artist community (and hipster hotspot). One of the best parts about this hip spot is BREW Urban Cafe! Here, you can enjoy a delicious cold brew, “black eye,” cortado—you name it! This spot serves all of the coffeehouse staples, so you’ll be content and caffeinated in no time.
Stache Drinking Den + Coffee Bar
If a nostalgic, speakeasy-style atmosphere sounds up your alley, come and enjoy a cup at Stache Drinking Den + Coffee Bar. It’s equal parts comfy lounge, nightclub, mixology hotspot, and coffee shop. Be sure to stop by during the day if all you need is caffeine! And, of course, we won’t judge you if you decide to go back for drinks later that same night. This spot is one of Fort Lauderdale’s best riverfront bars!
