The Vintage

A downtown favorite, the Vintage has been serving up coffee, beignets, wine and more for years. Nestle up with a warm fluffy pastry in one of their cozy booths. Not only do they serve java, they also offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner!


Coffee Call

Founded in 1976, Coffee Call has always been a Baton Rouge tradition for coffee and treats.  Walk in and immediately smell roasted coffee beans or just relax for an hour or two. Either way, you’re up for the perfect cup of café au lait. They also serve up warm beignets!


City Roots

One of the newer locations out of the bunch, City Roots has quickly become the ultimate coffee stop. Located inside the multi-purpose facility of the Electric Depot, the shop specializes in small-batch roasting and hand-crafted coffee beverages, including sparkling lattes, nitro-coffees and ice-cream-based alternatives. They also offer free coffee tasting!


French Truck Coffee

A Mid-City staple, French Truck Coffee was inspired by a bag of coffee brought to the owner in 2009 by a cousin of his in San Francisco. The coffee was so fresh, that he came up with the concept of combining the best beans and roasting them in small batches. Since then, the shop has lived up to its expectations of serving the freshest coffee in town.


PJ’s Coffee

If you’re looking for a fresh taste of goodness, PJ’s is the way to go. Located downtown in the Shaw Center and on Highland, the location can roast you up a batch of coffee that’ll have you feeling like you’re ready to take on the world! Stop by for a ground cup of coffee, expresso, breakfast sandwiches and more.
