Wind Down or Perk Up With Local Coffee Shops

Find a new spot to start your morning or restart your afternoon!

Ah, the age-old ritual of grabbing coffee with a friend. Is there anything more restorative for both the heart and soul than good conversation and a cuppa joe?


Here in Bucks County, we’re lucky enough to have more than a few specialty coffee shops with hometown vibes that could give Starbucks a run for its money (though no disrespect to their Iced White Chocolate Mocha).


Whether you’re looking for a place around the corner from your office for a quick shot of espresso or have a little more time to laze around and watch the foot traffic, the next time you’re looking for a spot to catch up with a friend check out our list below. 


Calm Waters Coffee Roasters

242 Mill Street, Bristol


Take the time to slow down and appreciate the good things in life at Calm Waters Coffee Roasters, a small specialty coffee shop and roaster in Historic Bristol Borough that offers a selection of local baked goods, a variety of bottled beverages and of course traditional hot/cold coffee and non-coffee beverages.


The Coffee Room

15 South State Street, Newtown

Serving coffee locally roasted by ReAnimator Coffee, Philadelphia and Calm Waters Coffee Roasters, their classic approach to coffee focuses on the love of the taste — you can drink it black — it’s that good. Or you can add locally sourced milk, soy milk or almond milk if you prefer. 


Cowabunga Coffee

1584 North Main Street, Warrington


After an afternoon of shopping at Valley Square, head to Cowabunga Café and try their Bucks County Light Blend, or if you’re looking for something stronger, their Jersey Devil Blend.


Homestead General Store

1650 Bridgeton Hill Road, Upper Black Eddy


Sit down to a fresh cup of brewed coffee in this 19th Century barn alongside the Delaware River, or take your coffee to go as you walk the adjacent Pennsylvania State Tow Path or explore the Delaware Canal State Park. The General Store has been in continuous operation since the 1830s and today is known for its namesake Homestead Coffee Roasters brand. 


Johnson Hall Coffee House

3 Hulme Avenue, Hulmeville


This boutique family-friendly coffee shop serves artisan beverages and gourmet Leige Waffles and Crepes.

Langhorne Coffee House

102 South Bellevue Avenue, Langhorne


After an exciting (and maybe tiring) day at Sesame Place, head on over to the Langhorne Coffee House to unwind and refuel. They offer an extensive menu with many lunch specials during the week. Not only is their coffee locally roasted, but their breads, bakery items, and bagels travel just a handful of miles just about every day. Stop by for a boost to get you through the rest of the day. You can even bring your pup, as they proudly provide “puppy parking”!


Native Café

12 South Main Street, Doylestown


Fan of fusion? This contemporary, Asian-infused Doylestown café rivals one you’d find in the Philadelphia neighborhoods of Fishtown and Northern Liberties. Grab a drip coffee and some Avocado Toast or a Holy Basil Breakfast Burrito, made with Thai-style eggs, pork stir-fry, Thai basil and jasmine rice.


Nonno’s Italian Coffee Parlor

6 East State Street, Doylestown


If you’re looking for that authentic Italian Coffee Parlor vibe, then this is the place to be.
