We simply can’t get enough of the magical human rocket fuel that is coffee. A morning without it is like 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?
If we’re speaking your language, then today is your day. It’s #NationalCoffeeDay and in celebration of this VIH (very important holiday), we are hitting all the best-kept secrets on getting your coffee fix while you’re in Branson. 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 Cafe & Espresso
New to Branson is Sugar Leaf Cafe & 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. Its warm and inviting atmosphere is second only to the incredible house-made specialty lattes they serve. Okay, and maybe that and the fresh cinnamon rolls, too! Our Favorite Drink: Photo Op.
2. Kaffee Haus Branson
Cute and quaint, this little coffee shop in the front of the Branson Center Stage Grille right on the famous 76 strip is the perfect spot for breakfast! Complete with beautiful patio seating, unique drinks, and gourmet goodies, this is one stop that will really hit the spot. Our Favorite drink: Butter Rum Mocha.
3. The Pie Safe
What’s the perfect snack on a full day of shopping in downtown Branson? A slice of home-made pie and a signature Frappe from The Pie Safe, of course! Located next to the Victorian House store on the corner of Commercial and Main, The Pie Safe serves up a slice of heaven alongside signature drinks that are sure to please! Our Favorite Drink: The Snickerdoodle Frappe!

4. Dino’s Cake & Coffee Co.
You might have heard about Dino’s incredible talents with the piano, but did you know his skillset extends to scrumptious treats as well? Known for his award-winning Carrot Cake, Dino’s shop located in downtown Branson offers up some seriously yummy sweets alongside some delicious drinks! Unique to his location, you can walk right up to the window to order your drinks right from the sidewalk! Our Favorite Drink: The Cafe Mocha.

5. Hollister Coffee Co.
Ok, Ok, you’re right. Hollister is not technically Branson, but with only a short 5-minute drive down the road, you could land yourself on the patio of one of the best little secrets in the area! Hollister Coffee Co. is a relaxing little nook just off the historic Downing Street in Hollister and they serve up some serious joe. Along with fan faves like Avacado Toast, Protein Shakes, and Power Waffles, you can get a morning pick me up that’s as pretty as it is tasty! Our Favorite Drink: Cinnamon Vanilla Latte with Almond Milk.

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. Our Favorite Drink (for now): The Mona Lisa (Honey, Lavender, Coconut)
One of Branson’s newer 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 your barista on-screen to pulling around to them bringing your drink to you in person through their sliding doors, Expresso wants you to feel welcomed every step of the way. And their coffee? Simply delicious. Our Favorite Drink (at the moment): Autumn in a Cup Latte (cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange zest, lightly sweetened with 100% bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup!)
2010 W 76 Country Blvd, Branson, MO
8. Crave Coffee & Crepes
Crave is home to incredible crepes and one heck of a cup of coffee, located in a cute food truck right in front of the beautiful Branson Ferris Wheel. If you require a serious caffeine boost, Crave has you covered. Their premium coffee packs a punch and pairs perfectly with The Swede Crepe! Our Favorite Drink: Iced Americano with a splash of cream.
