words "but first, coffee"

What’s better than a great cup of coffee? How about a great cup of coffee at a LOCAL coffee shop? We’ve listed the 6 best Cape Cod coffee shops + some kid friendly tips for visiting each one!

Hot Chocolate Sparrow

5 Old Colony Way, Orleans MA

Open year-round for specialty drinks, delectable desserts, and candy! Hot Chocolate Sparrow is known for their frozen hot chocolate. Try it and you’ll know why!

Kid Friendly Tips

Your littles will LOVE the candy wall! Prep them ahead of time if you plan to (or plan not to!) purchase candy. It’s a fun experience but can be overwhelming if you haven’t planned ahead.

Coffee Obsession

38 Water Street Woods Hole, MA

Family-owned + operated! “We encourage our visitors to enjoy a tasty beverage in a place as warm and welcoming as your eccentric aunt’s living room, featuring a variety of local artists’ work. It is a community place where teachers, musicians, scientists, students, locals, and travelers gather to have stimulating conversations.” -Coffee Obsession

Kid Friendly Tips

There is so much to look at inside Coffee Obsession! Play a game of “I spy” using the artwork on the walls while you and your littles enjoy delicious drinks and food!

Snowy Owl Coffee Roasters

Kid Friendly Tips

Ask the baristas at Snowy Owl about the bean sourcing and roasting process! The Snowy Owl team cares a great deal about the art of coffee and the ethical and sustainable production of a great cup, and we’ve found that they’re also happy to chat with even the littlest cafe visitors about the process!

Wired Puppy Coffee

Wired Puppy says it best themselves: The only thing better than coffee is community. When you come to Wired Puppy, we want you to feel like you’ve come home. That you can relax surrounded by friends. We’re open and inclusive so everyone feels at home. We stay open year round to serve our locals. We don’t just want to serve you, we want to know you.”

We’ve seen many ACTUAL puppies (dogs) at Wired Puppy. Your kids will love to spot the adorable cafe guests, and you’ll love their specialty drinks!

Nirvana Coffee Company

Location, location, location! Conveniently located on 6A, Nirvana offers specialty coffee, bakery items and delicious sandwiches. We’d be remiss not to mention the tea offerings, though. Try the chai!

Nirvana is a cozy spot to meet another mom friend and her littles on a rainy day, or take advantage of the nice weather and stroll the sidewalk-lined street outside!

Three Fins Coffee Roasters
