From Cuban coffee to a caramel latte, from Colombian tinto to Swedish FIKA…we’ve got the coffee you’re craving in Downtown West Palm Beach! We promise you’ll get a great cup of coffee at all of these spots, but a very different ambiance and vibe at each place. Support our small locally owned coffee shops with this list of The Best Coffee Shops in Downtown West Palm Beach.

Best Coffee Shops in Downtown West Palm Beach

Salento Coffee

407 Clematis
Salento Coffee is a favorite stop on our Downtown West Palm Beach Food Tour where our guests meet the owner Jaime, enjoy a demonstration and experience a Colombian tradition. Expect an extensive coffee menu, but we encourage you to try Tinto – an old-fashioned coffee recipe that needs nothing more than your hands (no machines allowed), boiling water, sweetened with panela (raw sugar cane) and poured through a cloth filter that results in a super smooth cup of coffee. Trust us, you’re in for a treat, and make sure to order a pandebono to go with your Tinto.

Johan’s Joe

401 S. Dixie
An elegant and beautiful coffee shop off the beaten path. Treat yourself to FIKA – a traditional Swedish coffee break where a sweet treat is always enjoyed with your coffee. Our favorite FIKA goody is the snowball…a Nutella stuffed cookie made with oats, espresso and coconut. Johan’s Joe serves the award-winning Lofberg Lila coffee from Sweden which is organic, fair trade and rainforest alliance certified.

Subculture Coffee

509 Clematis
Follow your nose to the aroma of coffee beans roasting, and you’ll find Subculture Coffee in the hipster 500 block of Clematis Street. We’re partial to their patio with the iconic and vibrant Einstein mural…the most photographed in West Palm Beach. In addition to great coffee, they serve breakfast and lunch as well as beer and wine in the afternoon. Yep, you can hang here all day.

Havana Restaurant

6801 S. Dixie
We’re making an exception here since Havana Restaurant is not in Downtown West Palm Beach. It’s worth the quick drive if you want to experience an authentic Cuban coffee. Step-up to their ventanita (translation: walk-up window), place your order, and don’t forget to add a delicious guava and cheese pastelito to go with your coffee. Added bonus? Havana’s ventanita is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! PS – the lingo for ordering Cuban coffee can be a bit confusing, but don’t worry, we’ve got a cheat sheet guide for you.
