Even if you’re used—and loyal—to a particular coffee chain, it can be nice to expand your horizons and try a local, independent coffee shop. And while you’re at it, why not make it a Black-owned business? If you’re looking for a new place to grab a coffee or tea in your area (or know where to go when you eventually travel again), here’s a few of the many Black-owned coffee shops across the country.

Sip and Savor, Chicago

Not only does this Windy City mini-chain have certified fair trade coffee from around the world, there’s also a wide selection of teas, mochas, lattes and blended drinks. There are four locations in Southside Chicago in Bronzeville, Hyde Park, Rosenwald and SouthLoop.

Venture North, Minneapolis

Venture North isn’t just a coffee shop: It’s a bike shop, too. If that weren’t enough, it’s also a nonprofit that helps empower youth in the community through cycling programs, classes and jobs.

A.T. Oasis Coffee & Tea Shop, Phoenix

This shop focuses on small-batch Ethiopian coffee, as well as smoothies, milkshakes and grab-and-go eats.

Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee and Books, Philadelphia

While the coffee shop part of this business is currently closed, you can still order books and other items through their website to help keep it afloat until it can start serving up java once again.

Backatown Coffee, New Orleans

If you like coffee, jazz and dining al fresco, Backatown Coffee is a solid choice. There’s free WiFi, so once things open up again, it could be a great spot to get some work done.

Coffy Café, Washington, D.C.

In addition to coffee and tea, Coffy Café is also known for its crepes. And though you can’t enjoy them in person right now, they are available for delivery.

Brooklyn Perk, New York City

If you find yourself in Brooklyn in need of some coffee, this is the place to go. In the mood for something different? With everything from red velvet coffee to an almond milk banana latte, and something called a “unicorn” (made with matcha, red shiso and apple), there’s something for everyone on the menu.

Other locations

This is only a tiny sample of the Black-owned coffee and tea shops in the country. There are several other (more comprehensive) lists out there that are worth a look. Maybe you’ll find a new favorite spot.
