We don’t need a contrived “holiday” to celebrate coffee—most of us sip several cups a day because #cubiclelife. But since your your social media feeds are likely being flooded with corporate mermaids, we decided to spotlight some of our favorite local bean peddlers. So head to one of these spots to grab a cup because today, like any day, is a good day for coffee.
Makers & Finders
This urban coffee bar pairs its sips with a menu of Latin comfort food such as arepas and empanadas. You can have your coffee any way you like: siphon, Moka, AeroPress, French press or just plain drip. While anything on the menu will have you coming back for more, the office favorite is the Lavender Infused Latte. And soon, you won’t have to trek down to Main Street to get your fix—a second location is opening soon at Downtown Summerlin. 1120 S. Main St., 702-586-8255, MakersandFindersLV.com.
There’s a lot to love at this Downtown joint, from the earthy decor (there are real trees sprouting out of the ground) to the farm-to-table food offerings. But the real star is their artisanal coffee—macadamia nut lattes, old fashioned espressos and much, much more. 1126 Fremont St., 702-331-5500, publicuslv.com.
Vesta Coffee Roasters
Open for less than a year, this industrial-looking Arts District newcomer is cornering the coffee market, with many businesses in Downtown and beyond pouring Vesta roasts and nitro cold brews. While you’re there, grab a Hawaiian Benedict Sandwich. Actually, just bring your laptop. You’ll be here a while. 1114 S Casino Center Blvd., 702-685-1777, vestacoffee.com.
Originally a wholesale outpost, this locals favorite opened to the public in 2015, offering delectable pastries and nitro coffee. It’s small but fierce, with a wealth of specialty roasts from Ethiopia, Guatemala, Peru and elsewhere across the globe. 2708 N. Green Valley Pkwy., Henderson, 702-456-1869, mothershipcoffee.com.
Go to any of the three Las Vegas Sambalatte locations during peak hours and you might have a hard time finding a seat. That’s because nine-to-fivers in the know know what’s up: single-origin brews from Africa and South America, flat whites and lattes. Speaking of which, make sure to put the Nutella latte to your to-drink list. Three locations, Sambalatte.com.
Tiabi Coffee & Waffle Bar
Come for the waffles, stay for the specialty drinks, such as Tiff’s Macchiato: cinnamon and vanilla, topped with whipped cream and, yes, a churro waffle. 3961 S. Maryland Pkwy., 702-222-1722, IWantTiabi.com.
