Best Coffee Shops In Mobile & The Eastern Shore

Whether you're trying to get some work done or looking for a much-needed cup of joe, we've got you covered! Heres a list of some of the best coffee shops near Mobile.

Chaleur Method Brew and Espresso

1714 Dauphin St, Mobile

Chaleur Method Brew and Espresso is a charming little French-inspired coffee lounge on the corner of Dauphin Street. Fan favorites include coffee cocktails like their Espresso Sangria and lattes with a twist like their Bourbon Aged Vanilla. However, the creativity doesn’t end there! With a modern take on old classics and an atmosphere of an enchanting antique store, Chaleur’s blend of new south attitude with cozy electric antique furniture is almost as good as their coffee! Chaleur Method is run by a couple who are deeply passionate about their beans. In the front of the shop, there is a giant Daedric bean roaster where they fresh roast their beans every Tuesday. 

Nova Espresso 

306 Saint Athony Street, Mobile | (251) 287-1379

Nova is a fairly new coffee spot in Mobile and it has already made quite the first impression with its hip atmosphere and killer espresso. While their menu is much more refined than most coffee shops, this stripped-down approach is welcomed when you taste what they have to offer. The outside patio and music make for a wonderful experience. However, the coffee is the star of the show here. From their balanced and silky espresso to their humble pour over it’s no wonder why Nova has risen through the ranks so quickly here in the heart of downtown.

The Core Community Coffee House

7899 Cottage Hill Rd, Mobile | (251) 308-8328

All profits made by The Core Community Coffee House go to Project Rescue to help rescue and restore victims of sexual slavery as well as other local ministry organizations. While you can rent out The Core on their website for your organization they also have a corner stage for small concerts, open mic events and more. They also offer curbside pickup if you are in a hurry!

Carpe Diem Coffe & Tea Co.

4072 Old Shell Rd, Mobile | (251) 304-0448

Carpe Diem is beautiful little coffee house tucked away on Old Shell. However, you can’t miss the giant cup of inviting coffee on their sign outside. While most coffee shops try to lull you into a cozy corner, Carpe Diem becomes a buzzing hub of creatives during its busy hours. The walls are covered with local art (some for sale) and little coffee accessories. This all makes for a great environment to brainstorm with your friends or just enjoy their lovely roasts.

Refuge Coffee

4 South Bancroft St Fairhope

Refuge is the best in-and-out coffee spot in Fairhope. What better way to meet up with your friends than a cappuccino and sidecar espresso deemed (the hit and sit), one of Refuge’s most popular menu items. Refuge while having an array of comfortable furniture also has a stand-up coffee bar if you’re just looking for a quick espresso before a run or meeting!

Soul Caffeine 

2004 US Highway 98, Ste B Daphne | 251-345-4156

Soul Caffeine Is a refined yet spacious coffee spot that people on the Eastern Shore love to frequent to have small group meetings or just to catch up on some homework. Their menu has everything you could want from your typical pour-overs and cold-brews to creative concoctions like their red velvet latte or cinnamon bun frappes. All of Soul Caffeine’s tips go to local ministries, mission organizations, and non-profits to help rebuild the community! With a lovely grand piano in the corner for anyone to play and chalkboard walls full of beautiful illustrations and cute coffee puns, it’s no wonder why Soul Caffeine is one of the most frequently visited coffee shops on the gulf coast.
