Coffee Shops

Temple Coffee Roasters: This coffee shop is one of the top in Sacramento and is best known for selling coffee from local-roasters.You can even choose to buy whole beans or have a coffee prepared by a barista. The atmosphere is made to give off “good vibes” and a place where people can come together. There is a cozy, outdoor patio that gives off the perfect cafe atmosphere.

Chocolate Fish: This shop is a grab-and-go kind of spot with one of the smoothest coffees in town. Being very quant and mellow, there is not much space to sit and hang out, but the coffee and pastries are to die for!

Insight Coffee: This is the fastest growing coffee shop in Sacramento, and roasts their own coffee. The atmosphere on the inside surrounds you by shelves of books and makes you feel like you are in a fairytale, which is a different aesthetic compared to the rest of downtown Sacramento.
