One of the simple pleasures of the warmer months is finally moving from hot to iced coffee in the morning. Nothing beats that first refreshing sip of cold brew, iced chai, or macchiato on a day when it’s finally warm enough to enjoy the great outdoors. Luckily for us, there are so many awesome coffee shops and cafes in the Strip District, and today we’re highlighting a few of our favorites.
Colony Café and Cat Loft is a unique destination right here in the Strip District that offers delicious beverages from Third Wave Coffee, a full bistro-style food menu, and beer, wine, and cocktails for the evenings. In addition to their café, Colony also hosts a group of feline friends who have been rescued and are awaiting adoption. When you visit Colony, you’re free to enjoy a refreshing iced beverage, delectable lunch, and an afternoon visiting the cats in the loft. If you meet an extra-special furry friend, you can even apply to adopt and bring your cat home with you. Check out Colony’s website for more details, menus, and hours of operation.
In true Strip District fashion, Prestogeorge is a specialty coffee shop with an enormous selection of coffee, tea, and gourmet food. If you’re not a coffee expert, their friendly staff can guide you to the selection you’re looking for, whether that’s in the form of whole bean coffee, loose leaf tea, or simply a refreshing iced beverage to-go. Prestogeorge also carries an impressive array of coffee add-ons and syrups, so you can walk away from the store with enough inventory to create your very own at-home café.
