New Orleans’s independent coffee shop scene has thrived in recent years, beginning with the arrival of third wave shops in the 2010s. Many neighborhood shops have become increasingly important to their communities in the last year as well, offering free resources like community printers or running their own community fridge. There are those that roast their own beans, like French Truck and Congregation, and those that utilize locally-roasted brands to make inventive specialty drinks. Even better, 2020 led to many shops expanding their offerings, from pantry staples to produce boxes to delivery.
This map covers some — not all — of the best New Orleans shops, from newcomers like Park Island Brew to longtime favorites like the Bean Gallery, whether you’re in need of some cold brew, a frozen drink, a pour-over, a cafe au lait, or just a black cup of joe.
