I think my coffee fad started back my freshman year of college. Prior I was definitely not a coffee drinker but I guess late night studying and working had me on my toes lol. When I interned on 30A back in 2017 & 2018 I was introduced to “Bad A** Coffee” & yes that’s the name! The vanilla and caramel latte was addicting. I started venturing out to different coffee shops and trying new things over the years and wanted to share with ya’ll some of my favorite stops along 30A and a few in Destin.
BEACH HAPPY CAFE
Beach Happy Cafe is located in Watercolor and has some of the best on-the-go breakfast items, coffee, and 30A gear for your family & friends! I always love stopping here because they are open later than most coffee shops & are always so sweet (the coffee I have in my hand in this photo is from Beach Happy)! I ordered an iced vanilla latte with macadamia milk and let me tell you holy cow! It was SO YUMMY.
BEACHY BEAN COFFEE CO.
Beachy Bean has been a favorite for years! I remember going to get coffee on my bachelorette trip every morning because it was soooo good. The aesthetic is the perfect beach girl vibe. When Christmas time comes around their gingerbread lattes are scrumptious and decor is so festive. I loved sitting on the back porch working and enjoying my coffee. If you need a quick breakfast too, the wraps are fantastic.
BAD A** COFFEE
Of course this made the list! They source their coffee from Hawaii and I’ve had so many great drinks. They are the kind of coffee shop where I’m not afraid to try new things because they are so good.
BLACK BEAR COFFEE
If you’ve been following a log time you know this is one of my go-to spots (they have one in Destin & in Grayton). I always order the tan line latte with almond milk. They make their syrups in house and are delicious! They also have some of the best pastries and BREAD is their forte.
EAST PASS COFFEE CO. (DESTIN)
We were in the Destin area yesterday and I stopped to try East Pass Coffee Co. out! It exceeded my expectations and the atmosphere was so cute and “beachy”. Hudson loved sitting in the chairs out front while mama enjoyed her coffee!
If you have a favorite let me know below in the comment section. Hope ya’ll have a great weekend and if you’re in the 30A/Destin area give one of these a try!
