The first thing we do when we arrive in a new city is scope out the coffee scene. We always feel at home as soon as we've found our new favorite coffee shop, but to be honest we were a little skeptical of what we would find in Vegas! The good news is that there's actually amazing coffee programs here, and here's a list of the best coffee shops in Las Vegas.
Mothership Coffee Roasters is a local micro-roastery located in the "real life" part of Vegas, known as Henderson, NV. Instead of the glitz of the strip, the shop is located in a strip mall, and they're one of the only roasters in town. Try their ntirogen cold brew or farm-to-table pastries!
Located in Vegas' new Arts District, Makers & Finders is a bright and beautiful spot with amazing coffee. They have 7 brewing methods and 5 different single-origin beans on hand, so they know what's up. Bonus: the iced almond milk chai latte is a real winner, it tastes like cake in cup. Come in with friends for lunch and the Latin comfort food will make you want to stay a while!
If you go one place in Vegas, make it PublicUs. The coffee program is so rad, featuring "cocktails" like an Espresso Old Fashioned. Plus, the man behind the menu is Cole McBride, one of the most competitive baristas in North America. Try a charcuterie plate, enjoy a craft beer, or get some work done with the best wifi in town.
Last but not least is Sunrise Coffee, Vegas' first micro-roastery and parent to Mothership Coffee, and it's a warm and inviting neighborhood coffee shop. The food is healthy, affordable, and there's tons of gluten-free and vegetarian options - try the famous Alien burrito!
