Fresno is the fifth largest city in California. That’s a lot of people to caffeinate! Although Fresno isn’t as well known as California’s other major cities, it holds its own when it comes to unique and flavorful coffee spots. Here are 6 of the best coffee shops in Fresno according to a local (yours truly). And be sure to say hi if you catch me here. These coffee shops made my list for more than the flavors, they all make great places to blog as well!
Best Coffee Shops in North Fresno
Collect Coffee Bar
Situated at Campus Pointe right next to Fresno State, I love Collect Coffee Bar because of its high ceilings and large windows. Collect also has the best parking out of any Fresno coffee shop. Next to a movie theater and the overflow parking of the Save Mart Center, you can almost always find a parking spot.
- 3142 E Campus Pointe Drive
- My Favorite Drink: White Macadamia Latte
The Frappe House
The Frappe House is another Fresno coffee shop with great windows and a spacious floor plan. Parking here is also easy because it is on the Cross City Church campus. I like the Frappe House if I have the desire to be outdoors but I still have work to do. Sometimes they open up a garage door wall letting all the fresh air in.
- 2777 E Nees Avenue
- My Favorite Drink: White Chocolate Mocha
Best Coffee Shops in Clovis
Kuppa Joy could qualify as one of the best coffee shops in Clovis, North Fresno, or Tower as they have a location in all three spots. Their Old Town location was one of the first places recommended to me when I moved to Fresno, and for good reason. Kuppa has great coffee and a great vibe.
- Clovis: 518 Clovis Avenue
- Fresno: 1900 N Echo Avenue
- North Fresno (Joy Thru): 6747 Cedar Avenue
- My Favorite Drink: Kuppa Joy or Blood Orange Green Tea
Two Cities Coffee Roasters
This is a unique coffee shop in Clovis because it doubles as a rolled ice creamery. Two Cities is the perfect stop if you are ever walking around Old Town Clovis, especially if you need to take a break on their cute back patio.
- 608 4th Street Clovis
- My Favorite Drink: Penguin Latte
Best Coffee Shops in Tower
When I think of fun Fresno coffee shops, The Revue is the first place that comes to mind. A retro vibe and large windows with the perfect view of Olive make this a popular hangout spot. The back also has great study carrels if you get lucky enough to snag one.
- 620 E Olive Avenue
- My Favorite Drink: Whiskey Caramel Latte
Another fun Fresno coffee shop is Hi-Top. Hi-Top is my favorite when I need a filling snack. They have delicious avocado or peanut butter toast on giant slices of bread.
- 1306 N Wishon Avenue
- My Favorite Drink: Vanilla Latte
