As fall weather quickly approaches you can most likely catch the aroma of pumpkin spice filling the air on what seems like every corner. Nothing against the beloved unofficial mascot of fall, we just wanted to seek out some new flavors of fall to share. Listed are a few of the locally owned coffee shops we think are doing it right.
Ground Hideout Coffee
This family owned gem is located at 356 E. 4th St, in Long Beach and is open from 7-4pm daily. Growing up on a coffee plantation, they learned to taste and appreciate quality coffee that is sourced from their own backyard. The Bonilla family believes in creating a welcoming environment, while also connecting to the local community and more. They also offer a selection of freshly baked artisan pastries that are organic, free of preservatives, or additives that are sourced from California farms. Don’t forget to try their breakfast burritos and specialty toast!
The Library, one of the oldest, and most eccentric coffee shops in Long Beach located at 3418 E. Broadway St, Long Beach, offers a variety of different flavors to satisfy your fall cravings. They also offer a selection of baked goods, salads, and sandwiches if you are in the mood for a snack to accompany your beverages. The Library has one of the best environments to mimic a cozy fall day even if it is scorching outside. So grab a book, a laptop or friend and settle into one of their many comfy nooks.
This cute and communal coffee shop that is family owned located at 137 W. 6th St, Long Beach is a great place to get your LatinX inspired fall vibes on. Featuring flavors such as a Mazapan Latte or a Rompope Latte, this will definitely spice up your usual Pumpkin spice order for fall. They also offer delicious pastries, vegan donuts, small breakfast sandwiches, bagel sandwiches, and a variety of grab & go options. Stay awhile, and also grab a book from their community library, and enjoy their reminiscent drink options while you enjoy a fall day.
Rose Park Roasters
Rose Park Roasters is located in 3 different locations across the city at 800 Pine Ave, 455 E. Ocean Blvd, and 3044 E. 4th street. Rose Park Roasters wanted to create a coffee experience that focused on not diminishing the quality, while still being brewed at home using whatever equipment you have, no experience necessary. Their coffee reflects their mission to walk the line of accessible and exhilarating along with being rugged and refined. If you are a maple inlined fall flavor person, you must try their maple lavender latte and pick up some beans to elevate your morning routine.
