Fall officially kicks-off this weekend which means we’re on the hunt for the very best coffee in Roswell. Coffee is intoxicating. It’s the sound of beans grinding. It’s the scent of a freshly roasted pot. It’s the feeling it gives you, and the memories it evokes. Essentially, there’s nothing like it. Now that autumn is upon us, we’re loving a cup of joe even more. From pumpkin spice lattes to beans that give back, we’re dishing on our favorite grinders in today’s blog post:
Crazy Love Coffee House is one of our go-to spots when we need a caffeine fix. For one, it’s charming farmhouse chic digs on the heart of Canton Street make us swoon. For another, their Liege waffles can’t be beat. And then of course, there’s the coffee. Take a note from us and give their iced vanilla latte a try. It’s one of the best we’ve ever had. While at Crazy Love, peruse their corner of books or their other giftable items, but most of all, enjoy a few minutes to yourself or with a friend with a cup of coffee in hand.
This Roswell newcomer has already captured our hearts. Owned and operated by Roswell native Jasmin Willis, the new shop has an old soul. Willis is the former pastry chef for some of Atlanta’s most prestigious restaurants, knows her stuff, and happens to have graduated high school with our very own Molly. Needless to say, we’re big fans of Gracious Plenty! Order Stumptown coffee, pastries, and a variety of other breakfast items at the counter then find your table. Gracious Plenty’s attentive and friendly staff will pour you a soup-sized serving of coffee complete with your choice of cream and sweetener.
Coffee that gives back? Say no more. Land of a Thousand Hills’ Do Good initiatives are needs based and focus on meeting social, economic, and spiritual needs in a sustainable way. The business currently has three initiatives that they’re working towards: implementing a community health clinic for the people of Kivu and Ruli, aiding women in the Nziza Collective, and helping communities have access to clean water. Any opportunity to support our local businesses while achieving global change is one we wholeheartedly support.
With two Roswell area locations, Scooter’s has always had a special place in our hearts and on our coffee radars. We love the variety at Scooter’s, and their seasonal drinks are not to be missed. Menu items like pumpkin caramelicious and pumpkin spice latte blender have us feeling even more excited for the season. If you’re looking for a “healthy” option, consider their pumpkin pie smoothie. As their website says, it’s like “sipping fall through a straw.”
Another Canton Street gem, Sugar Shack in the Back may or may not be a weekly stop for us. A sister store and bakery for Roswell favorite Fickle Pickle, Sugar Shack is a small cafe that brings gourmet coffee in a quaint atmosphere. Besides delicious coffee, you’ll find breakfast twists on Fickle Pickle favorites. We like the ooey gooey biscuit with bacon, egg, pimento cheese, and red pepper jelly. Pair that bad boy with an iced coffee for the perfect Southern fall treat.
