Coffee Shops in and around Cedar Rapids

Cedar Rapids coffee shops

Like many moms around the world, I always start my day with a cup of coffee. I’ve tried to give it up before and failed. But, you know what? I don’t even care. I’m glad my attempt to wean myself of my morning caffeine rush was unsuccessful. I enjoy drinking my coffee and why would I want to take the pleasure that comes from the first sip of goodness away from myself?!

When I moved to Cedar Rapids I was pleasantly surprised that there is an abundance of  delicious, local coffee shops to choose from. In honor of National Coffee Day, we have gathered all of the Cedar Rapids Coffee Shops in one spot for you to find. Though I haven’t been to all of the places listed below (yet…), some of my favorites are 1) Iced Classy Latte from Dash Coffee Roasters 2) Raw Chocolate Cold Brew with Cream from Uptown Coffee Co. or 3) Hot Vanilla Latte from Brewhemia.
