Start your day off right, enjoying the perfect cup of Joe. We already know there is a Starbucks or Coffee Bean, on every street corner. But where have all the independent coffee shops gone? Here in Palm Springs, there are several to choose from, but I wanted to highlight the best of the best.
Both of these coffee shops are known first, for their amazing coffee, espresso, and teas. But also for their great atmospheres, customer service, cleanliness, and uniqueness of their menus.
My all-time favorite here in Palm Springs is got to be, Koffi. They are located in downtown Palm Springs at 515 North Palm Canyon Drive (and Alejo). They have an amazing selection of fabulous coffees and teas, and they also offer Soy choices. If you are looking for something yummy to pair with your Joe, try one of their fresh-baked muffins, cinnamon rolls, and coffee cakes for breakfast, or a Panini or wrap, for lunch. The food is always terrific and the staff is friendly and helpful. Oh yeah, and did I mention the coffee is to die for. They open up at 5:30 am every morning and close at 7:00 pm.
Koffi recently opened a second location here in Palm Springs, located at 1700 South Camino Real (and East Palm Canyon Drive). This new store has all of the same great qualities as their original store.
Coming in next, is the Ignition Coffee Lounge. This place has a very relaxed atmosphere with a fun vibe. They have a great selection of coffee, and offer natural & vegan choices. They also offer free Wi-Fi, so you can catch up on emails, while sipping on a cup of Joe or while having a sandwich for lunch. They also have a hookah lounge with a large variety of flavored tobacco’s, and they feature live entertainment in the evenings too. The Ignition Coffee Lounge is family owned and offers great customer service. This is the only place in town you can get a late night cup of Joe . They are located at downtown at 123 North Palm Canyon Drive.
On your next visit to Palm Springs, skip the Starbucks and check out these great coffee shops. You will fall in love with coffee all over again.
