Casa Vittore Coffee

A coffee shop on Yakima Avenue that specializes in the authentic flavors of Guadalajara. Try the sweet and savory crepes with your morning coffee, or one of their delicious Panini’s for lunch. They are also open until 1:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday if you need that jolt of caffeine to keep the party going! 

Lincoln Avenue Coffee Co.

Often referred to as the “Best Espresso” in town, their locally roasted coffee beans make up their fresh coffee, lattes, iced drinks, breakfast cookies and specialty oatmeal. Take the quick drive-thru or go inside to the small sit-in area. A favorite with the kiddos, try the Creamsicle Italian Soda!
