Top Coffee Houses Around Reno / Tahoe

Get Your Coffee Either Sitting Down or at a Drive-Thru

By

You'd think this was Seattle or something, what with the great selection of good coffee shops and drive-thrus all around the Reno / Tahoe area. Getting a java jolt isn't a problem around here.

The Hub Coffee Co.

The Hub Coffee Co. serves only the finest brews from a combination of organic, Fair Trade, co-op grown, and shadegrown coffees, cultivated in a sustainable manner and without pesticides. According to Joey Trujillo, co-owner with his father Mark, you can really taste the difference with their carefully selected beans, exclusively from Barefoot Coffee in the Bay Area. Coffee at the Hub is French press prepared. For a real treat, try the "Cup of Excellence," a rare Guatemalan blend that isn't cheap, but then the best never is.

Java Jungle is one of downtown Reno's oldest independent coffee houses. It's next to the Truckee River and has an outdoor seating area for those nice days. Deli-type food is available inside. Next door is a partner business, Jungle Vino.

Good location facing McCarran Blvd. in south Reno. Kona Gold started as a coffee house (which it still is) and has expanded its offerings to include wine, cocktails, and a menu that includes breakfast, salads, and sandwiches.

Bibo Coffee Company

Bibo is tucked back away from main streets, giving it a quiet, relaxed atmosphere. You can sit outside in a grassy area during those times of the year. I hear the place makes a mean (as in really good) espresso they call Monsoon Medley.
