If you are like me, coffee is a favorite way to wake up. We sleepy folks drag ourselves out of bed each day and stumble into a local café for our morning caffeine fix. Local coffee shops are a great way to get to know a city. You’ll get to try local taste trends, find out about upcoming events and activities, and maybe even make a new friend.
Huntsville’s coffee scene is ever evolving, with new shops popping up across the city.
