We simply can’t get enough of the magical human rocket fuel that is coffee. A morning without it is no morning at all. The first sip feeling simply can’t be beat, and if we haven’t had it yet, you might as well not talk to us. Sound familiar?
Time to sit back, relax, and cozy up with your favorite cup of joe while you plan out your next must-stop coffee shop route in B-town!
1. Sugar Leaf Café & Espresso
In the heart of Branson is Sugar Leaf Café & Espresso which was recently built right next to the beloved Sugar Leaf Bakery in the Grand Village Shopping Center. Long-time fans of the Bakery’s sweet treats and yummy eats will adore this new and modern approach to a good cup of joe.

6. Vintage Paris
If you are a local anywhere near the Branson area and are under the age of 25, chances are you have a VP Punch Card with at least two iconic dog bone-shaped punches in it on your person at this moment. If you are unsure what any of that means, then allow us to introduce you to Vintage Paris. A beloved little shop, this is the place for homework, open paint nights, hanging with friends by the firepit, and- you guessed it—GREAT COFFEE! Their beans are all roasted in-house and their list of specialty lattes is lengthy (like a small book to thumb through), so it’s no wonder this is a popular choice amongst the locals.
In case you haven’t heard, Vintage Paris has moved! Having just relocated in late 2020, their new location is now directly across from one of the most famous spots to view Branson’s skyline, Scenic Overlook on Historic Highway 165.

7900 Historic State Hwy 165, Hollister, MO
One of Branson’s coffee shops is situated right in the heart of the 76 Strip and serves up some delicious concoctions on the go! Built inside of repurposed shipping containers, Expresso has a unique approach to coffee on-the-go. They believe that just because you are busy doesn’t mean you don’t deserve great coffee, and they work hard to provide their customers with a personal experience they won’t soon forget. From the moment you pull up to their menu, complete with a seasonal rotation of lattes and tea samplings, you’ll notice their attention to detail. From placing your order with a barista on-screen to pulling around and being greeted by another smiling barista holding your coffee creation at your window-side, Expresso wants you to feel welcomed every step of the way. And their coffee? Simply delicious.
