Coffee Shops in WIchita


Coffee Shops in Downtown/Midtown Wichita

  • Reverie Coffee Roasters – 2611 E. Douglas Ave.
    • A highly-informal reader poll suggests that Reverie is one of Wichita’s most-favored local coffee shops.  As shown by the below photo, their drinks are as beautiful as they are tasty!
  • Mead’s Corner – 430 E. Douglas Ave.
    • If you haven’t been to Mead’s Corner, you haven’t experienced coffee in Wichita.  Their beans are locally-roasted and the business prides itself on giving back to the community in many ways.  Mead’s Corner also hosts many local performers and events!
  • Espresso To Go Go – Two locations:  “The One with the Disco Ball” – 102 N. St. Francis and “The One with the Unicorn at the Lux” – 120 E. 1st St. N.
    • Friends of WMB explain that “what makes [Espresso To Go Go] special is that you can order from the board or from your heart. They have lots of specialty drinks that are not written down. Tell them what you are in the mood for and they will custom make a drink just for you. Hot or iced? Sweet or strong or both?”  Recommendations from Wichita residents include, the “Master Shake” (iced), the “Velvet Thunder,” or an Earl Gray tea drink the “Proper Gentleman.”
  • Common Grounds Coffee House – 2812 E. Douglas Ave.
    • Common Grounds Coffee House is geared towards providing an environment of coffee-drinking and fellowship.
  • Scooter’s Coffee – Three midtown locations:  (1) 801 E. Douglas Ave., Suite #110; (2) 311 N. Washington; and (3) 3100 W. McCormick St. (Newman University).
    • Most are familiar with the Midwestern coffee chain and its iconic kiosk-style buildings that are sprinkled throug

      hout the city.  Scooter’s prides itself on high-quality drinks, speedy service, and friendly staff.

  • R Coffee House – 1144 N. Bitting
    • Although it is in the former “Riverside Perk” location, this is an entirely new business!  It has undergone a complete remodel and is under new ownership and management.  Take your kids to Riverside Park and then grab some joe on the way home!
  • The Vagabond – 614 W. Douglas
    • Coffee shop by day, full-service bar by night.  I think that covers all the food groups!
  • College Hill Creamery  – 3700 E. Douglas (Clifton Square)
    • This place was reopened with new ownership and management earlier this year and considers itself to be “less an ice cream store that sells coffee and more a coffee shop that sells ice cream.”  Check out this Macinaw fudge chunk ice cream on a fresh Belgian waffle, drowned in a double shot of espresso, and you’ll be happy they have both!
  • The Donut Whole – 1720 E. Douglas St.
    • Although the Donut Whole is better known for its donuts, it also features fresh, house-blend coffee and espresso.
  • Starbucks
    • 2166 N. Amidon Ave. (Twin Lakes)


Coffee Shops in East Wichita

  • Savories – 2993 N. Webb Rd. (K96 and Webb – MidAmerican Credit Union Building)
    • Savories is one of my personal Wichita favorites.  This little shop can be hard to spot, as it shares a building with MidAmerican Credit Union, but you do not want to miss it!  It has its own drive-thru and patio, the owners are incredibly friendly, and the service is wonderful.  On top of delicious drinks, they also have gluten-free pastries, breakfast sandwiches, and a sandwich/salad lunch menu.
  • Il Primo Expresso Cafe – 6422 E. Central Ave.
    • Il Primo is a long-standing east Wichita favorite among coffee drinkers–and they even have a drive-through, which we all know is essential for moms!  You can even take your kiddos in and treat them to a mocha steamer.
  • Scooter’s Coffee – 3123 N. Rock Rd.
  • Dunkin’ Donuts – 11310 E. 21st St. N.
    • This is another one that requires little explanation.  It may be known for its donuts, but its coffee is a close second!
  • Starbucks – Need I say more?

    • 7707 E. Central Ave. (Dillon’s)

  • Cocoa Dolce – 2132 N. Rock Rd. (Bradley Fair)
  • LaMar’s Donuts and Coffee – 3130 N. Rock Rd.
    • LaMar’s is a Kansas City-based chain with 3 locations on the east, west, and south sides of Wichita.  Although it is first and foremost a donut shop, their beverage menu should not be overlooked if you are on the hunt for a caffeine fix.


Coffee Shops in West Wichita

  • Ecclesia Coffee – 7130 W. Maple, Suite 280 (near Maple and Ridge).

Coffee Shops in South Wichita

  • Churn and Burn – 548 S. Oliver St.
    • Churn and Burn takes a unique twist on coffee and prides itself on ice cream and coffee combos called “Churn & Burns.”  I think this covers all the main food groups.

  • Starbucks
    • 1600 S. Rock Rd.
    • 4747 S. Broadway St.

    • It might be cheating to call this “south Wichita,” but don’t forget to check out Dunkin’ Donuts inside the new terminal at Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport!
  • Java Villa Cafe – 7812 E. Harry St.
    • This shop is located near Harry and Rock and features espresso drinks, coffee, tea, made-from-scratch pies, and a number of lunch items.


Out-of-Town and Noteworthy

  • Moxi Junction (Maize) – 319 S. Park
    • Moxi Junction is incredibly unique and has so many things to love, from its location inside a charming remodeled home and employ

  • Jane’s Landing (Mulvane) – 1002 N. 2nd Ave.
    • This relatively-new shop has already garnered quite a following.  They even have delicious sparking lemonades for the non-coffee drinker (if such a mom exists).
  • WazUp Coffee House (Derby) – 1340 N. Nelson Dr.
    • WazUp is a large coffee shop with a large food menu, and even has a small space available for private event rental.
  • Park Grounds Coffeehouse (Derby) – 401 E. Madison Ave.
    • A contributor favorite, Park Grounds is more than just a coffee shop!  It has a gluten-free sandwich/salad menu and case of baked goods that is definitely worth the trip down south.
