Bozeman is a coffee town. Whether you hit the same drive-thru each morning, or adventure to different coffee shops searching for the perfect latte, there are plenty to choose from. You can always find a Starbucks or City Brew in Bozeman, but we love our local coffee shops for the awesome customer service, unique vibes, and of course for top quality coffee. Here's our list of the best local coffee shops in Bozeman.
#1 WILD JOE'S COFFEE
Wild Joe's has become a staple in downtown Bozeman. Not only is the coffee fantastic, but they also have plenty of seating for catching up with friends or watching live music on the weekends. There's more than just coffee, at Wild Joe's they have delicious pastries and ice cream!
#2 ZOCALO COFFEE HOUSE
Zocalo is located right in the heart of downtown Bozeman and is not just a coffee shop, they are also a tap bar. Whether you are looking for a caffeine fix or feel like a local brew, Zocalo has you covered. They feature local artists and makers and have a unique vibe with upstairs and outdoor seating available.
#3 THE DAILY COFFEE BAR
One of Bozeman's original coffee shops! The Daily Coffee Bar has been around since 1993 with its location on the corner of College and 11th. Lucky for Bozeman they expanded a couple of years ago with a second location off Oak Street near Rouse. The quality and consistency of the Daily never disappoints, and in a town that seems to be changing quickly, it's nice to have some things stay the same. The pastries and baked goods are made fresh with a focus on local, organic ingredients. Can't go wrong with that!
If you are looking for a lot of seating for your next study or meet-up group, Coldsmoke is the place to go. With two locations, one seating 170 and the other seating 215, it is fair to say there is a lot of room. Not to mention private meeting rooms available at no extra charge. The free wifi is extra fast, there are in-house baked goods, super friendly baristas, drive-thru's, outdoor seating at the Woodland Park location and did we mention the coffee is delicious? It is, and as if that wasn't enough one of the reasons they started in the first place was to give back internationally and locally. They work with El Porvenir to provide clean water to people in Nicaragua which is a great organization.
#5 ROCKFORD COFFEE ROASTERS
With a beautiful downtown location, Rockford is an obvious choice for your morning coffee. They are all about the coffee here, roasting their own and serving it alongside fresh-baked pastries, bagels and grilled panini's.
Another coffee roaster in a new location! Treeline Coffee Roasters was formerly Little Red Wagon so they certainly aren't new to the coffee world. They have a beautiful roasting room over on North Wallace that is open every day and they have food. Their second location is right on Main Street next to the Lark. They source coffees seasonally to bring us unique flavors in each cup of java. If you can't make it to Treeline, you can buy their coffee at many of the local grocery stores.
#7 INTERNATIONAL COFFEE TRADERS
Tucked up near campus is International Coffee Traders, a popular spot for students to study. They roast on site, small-batch coffees that are comprised of the highest quality, organic beans from unique regions. Their pastries are made from scratch and the atmosphere is industrial cool (think bicycle hanging from the ceiling and light fixtures made out of repurposed wine bottles!) Bonus-occasionally in the summer they have ice cream sandwiches made from homemade cookies for a buck. You simply cannot beat that!!
#8 STEEP MOUNTAIN TEA HOUSE
We know, this isn't technically a coffee shop! But, it is a beautiful tea house with excellent loose leaf tea. Located downtown, this Steep Mountain Tea House is always full and a great place to curl up with a book, study for your exam or visit with friends.
