But First...Coffee: Favorite Orlando Coffee Shops

It's true. I'm a sucker for a coffee shop. The drinks. The atmosphere. The stories. I love it! It's funny because as I think about it some of my fondest memories begin with a coffee shop. Whether it was a deep conversation with an old (or new) friend, blog planning (holla!) or discussing life-changing careers moves, you don't realize how pivotal a place can be. So shout out to all the coffee shops out there, keep on cultivating connections! And if you're looking for a good spot in the Orlando/Winter Park area, here are my current 5 favorite coffee shops around town:

LOCATION: 118 S Park Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789

 Perfect outside seating.

Acai bowl...hello?!!!!

If you follow @wedressalright on Instagram, you know your WDA girls frequent Barnie's prettyyy often. #noshame. Lattes are on point here! My new summer go-to drink is definitely the vanilla iced latte. And the food...omg. So good! Grilled Cheese with cheddar AND swiss. YAS. One of my favorite things about Barnie's is sitting outside and people watching. Just casually sipping while watching people shop on the Ave. Not to mention the tables satisfy my current obsession with marble. 


LOCATION: 1221 N Mills Ave, Orlando, FL 32803 (Check their Instagram for hours)

My new FAVEEEEE! I went in a few weeks ago for the first time and asked the barista to make me the most popular which happened to be the cappucino. Listen, I'm not a capuccino drinker but I was like, hey, you're the professional. HE DID NOT DISAPPOINT. It was one of (if not the) best straight coffee drink I've ever had. And if you want latte art...Propagation is your place. And if the quality of the beverages wasn't enough, the space is absolutely breathtaking. Open, perfect lighting, minimalist. Oh, and did I mention they have furniture you can purchase as well. Oh much more than your average coffee shop. Check out their Instagram too it's a beaut.

Palmano's Trattoria & Wine Bar
LOCATION: 333 S Park Ave, Winter Park, FL 32789

Local fave. Drinks from espresso to latte to cafe au lait (my pick) and delicious Italian foods. The fruit wrap with fresh fruits and peanut butter is fantastic. I definitely recommended grabbing a spot on the patio behind the cafe, it's a bit secluded and perfect for quietly enjoying your latte.

Segafredo Espresso

LOCATION: 1618 N Mills Ave Orlando, FL 32803

I stopped by Segafredo a few days ago to meet up with my bestie before she left town (wahhh!) and didn't really know what I was getting into. Usually I do a little “recon” before going to a new coffee shop but this was a last minute spontaneous outing. And may I say, being spontaneous paid off! Their menu was really impressive! Segafredo is more of a full on restaurant rather than just a coffee shop. But their coffee selection was awesome! It was hot as crud outside and I needed a cool beverage stat so I ordered the Tiramisu Frappe. O. M. G. It was glorious. It had a cookie on top, that's pretty much all I need to say right? Yep.


LOCATION: 706 W Smith St, Orlando, FL 32804
