Best Coffee in El Paso — Our Top Five
A good cup of coffee is the elixir of life! It can kick start your day with a jolt of much needed caffeine, or be the perfect partner to a delicious dessert at the end of the meal. A bad cup of coffee is definitely something you want to steer clear of, but where in El Paso do you find that perfect cupa joe? Check out our top five places to get a great cup of coffee in the EP!
Coffee Emporium, 5817 N. Mesa
Coffee Emporium is a great Westside hideaway that not only pours a mean cappuccino, but they have GODIVA CHOCOLATES BY THE PIECE! Can you tell I love this place?! Grab a cap, and then browse the cool kitchen knickknacks, grab a Godiva, or maybe a coffee press to take home for when you’re forced to make your own coffee!
Kinley’s House, 2231 N. Mesa
Kinley’s is a relative newcomer to the EP coffee scene, but they are definitely the place to go to see and be seen! Kinley’s hosts political forums as well as meetings of the El Paso Press Club, and UTEP students can be found grabbing not only coffee but a delicious sandwich to fuel their studies. My fave? The Breve Latte – it’s my usual Latte, but made richer with steamed half-n-half. So yummy in the tummy!
The Percolator, 217 N. Stanton
The Perc is the ultimate cool, downtown coffeehouse. On their Facebook page, they describe themselves as a coffee shop, hotspot, art space, poetry slam venue in the heart of El Paso. The ambiance only serves to enhance their delicious lattes! I love settling in with one while I people watch. Just being there ups my cool quotient!
Ardovino’s Pizza, 206 Cincinnati
Ardovino’s has been rocking the Cincinnati Entertainment District since 1961, and their cool Kern Place vibe has never been cooler! My favorite thing about Ardovino’s? They don’t bat an eye when I ask for a capuccino and dish of spumoni ice cream! The mixture of the cool ice cream with their deeply delicious cap is just the thing no matter the season. They’ve been doing great coffee for a long time, and their expertise is apparent!
Carnitas Queretaro, 907 Gateway West
This is my family’s go to location for Sunday morning breakfast. You won’t find better service or a more authentic Mexican meal anywhere, but their coffee! Oh, wonderful, dark, sweet cup of joy! And they don’t flip out when I ask for milk with my coffee! I hate to ruin something as sublime as Carnitas coffee with creamer. Bleh! No, java this heavenly deserves pure milk to enhance it’s flavor. The coffee angels smile every time Carnitas brews a fresh pot of coffee!
