Best of the West :: Coffee Shops in West Wichita

Coffee Shops in West Wichita

Coffee. What can I say about you that has not already been said millions of times by millions of moms? We love you, we need you. But sometimes we cannot find you! For a while I used the Starbucks app on my phone to locate the nearest caffeine supplier, but after getting burned {figuratively} a few times by mega-chain coffee, I began opting for locally-owned shops, which are not always easy to find when you’re in a car full of kids with spotty internet service! Whether you’re a west-sider on the hunt for better java or an east-sider held here against your will {or lost on your way to Tanganyika?}, here’s your guide to the best coffee shops in West Wichita:

Locally-Owned & Operated

 Verita Coffee Company – 9414 W. Central {between Tyler & Maize Rd.}

This one is worth the drive, even if you’re not in the neighborhood. Owned and operated by west-side residents Jon & Ivy Jones, Verita proudly serves beans from Stumptown Coffee Roasters {and a different single-origin espresso each moth!}, and let me tell you, they get it RIGHT. The shop itself is beautifully designed, and the drinks are prepared with passion and expertise. 

MOXI Junction – 319 S. Park {in Maize}

Serving coffee, tea, smoothies, cookies and more – this coffee shop in Maize {a northwest suburb of Wichita} is totally kid-friendly. Its birth story will yank on any mama’s heartstrings – and knowing the history of the amazing people who work there makes a visit all the more fun! They have story time every Tuesday morning at 10:30, and often  have live music. If you’re shopping in New Market Square, head north for 4 miles on Maize Road, and give them a try!

Twisted Java Coffee Bar – 2615 N. 13th St {just west of Riverside}

The west side’s newest coffee shop is located near the Riverside area – super close to the zoo if you need a little boost to keep up with the kids! In addition to coffee & tea, they also serve up cool treats like frappes and slushies, perfect for hot Kansas summers! They have a drive-through and offer muffins, cookies, and cinnamon rolls in addition to beverages – if your tummy requires more than a great beverage.

Paradise Donuts & Coffeehouse – 10607 W. Maple St.

Another locally owned & operated gem, Paradise Donuts is just West of the intersection of Maple and Maize. They serve coffee, espresso, and tons of donuts & donut holes!

Ecclesia Coffee & Community – 7130 W Maple St.

Coffee, pastries, and sandwiches? Check. Art, music, and community? Check, check, and check. If you’re near the intersection of Maple & Ridge, stop in for a treat!

    FYI, the Panera Bread on Ridge does have a drive-thru and great staff!

    Has anyone tried TJ’s on 13th yet? I have not.

    Locally owned and operated Paradise Donuts and Coffeehouses offer artisan fresh brew coffees as well as a selection of flavored espresso beverages. An iced latte or iced coffee is a perfect start to a hot summer morning. Drive thru available at both locations. Donuts are super delicious and made fresh each night.

    Drive thru at Maple and Maize location opens nightly at 11:00pm so fresh coffee and donuts are available to night owls all night long. The later you stay up the larger your donut selection!

    10607 W Maple (just west of Maize Rd)
    3107 W Central (Zoo Blvd & Central)
