Branson Coffee Shops
New to the downtown area, this smoothie and juice joint is one of the few Branson coffee shops where you can find nitro cold brew. Irresistibly smooth and packed with a serious jolt, cold brew isn’t the only java you can pipe into your system at Revive. Take your pick of the regular house blend or treat yourself to a cappuccino, macchiato, or frappé. But if you need an extra pick-me-up, try the shop’s house-made health shots. The wheatgrass and lemon ginger will wake you up in no time, while the fresh-pressed juices can pump you full of some much-needed fruits and veggies. Choose from Revive’s selection or build your own.

If your afternoon plans take you to Branson Landing, then plan to spend a little downtime at Sweet Bay. This Arkansas chain spread north when it opened its newest location at the Landing. Along with a wide selection of quick eats, including breakfast, baked goods, sandwiches, wraps, quiche, soups, salads, and panini, this welcoming java house has all the traditional coffee beverages you’re looking for. But that’s not all. Oh no – far from it! If you have a sweet tooth, hold tight because Sweet Bay has an entire menu of mocha-laced treats. There’s the caramel truffle, the sugar daddy, the peanut butter cup, the milky way, the raspberry truffle, and the almond roca. And that’s just a sampling!
This beloved downtown bakeshop is best known for its decadent cakes and desserts. If you’ve heard the hype about the 24Karrot Carrot Cake, this is the place to get it. It was that delectable dessert that first put this shop in the spotlight, and you can still sink your fork into a slice of that famous cake. In fact, you can enjoy a whole selection of cakes and cupcakes. Flavors including coconut cream, key lime, caramel pecan, strawberry, and chocolate fudge might be the main draw, but you can also indulge your caffeine cravings while you’re here. Order an espresso or a regular coffee, or try the iced latte, mocha, or the frappé. And if you find yourself still craving some of Dino’s cakes after you’re back home, there’s good news: The shop actually ships cakes across the country.
This eclectic coffee house and wine bar might not be in Branson, but it’s just a hop and a skip down the highway. Located in historic downtown Hollister, Vintage Paris is the place to go if you’re looking for a quiet retreat. The front porch and back patio are perfect spots to unwind while you enjoy a cup of coffee and soak up some late-afternoon sun. If you don’t have anywhere to rush off to, then order a glass of wine and check out the shop’s calendar of upcoming events. The cafe doubles as an art house and music venue, so you never know what’s going to be on the schedule. Art showcases, movie nights, live music, fundraisers, and educational workshops have all popped up at Vintage Paris.
Located near Indian Point, Bridges Coffee & Espresso Bar is tucked away off the main drag. Add in the spacious front porch, the homemade scones, and over-sized brownies, and it’s no wonder this hidden gem is one of the more popular Branson coffee shops. Pull up a seat out front, and order a coffee or a latte to start your day – and don’t head off without trying a scone. If you visit Branson during the holiday season, be sure to check out the shop’s Facebook page. Updates on the latest baked goods and holiday hours can help ensure you get a plate of Krispy Kreme doughnut bread pudding or a gingerbread latte.
If you’re in the mood for a simple cup of coffee or a homemade pastry, head to Sugar Leaf. This cozy and welcoming cafe is a fantastic lunch spot with award-winning chili, seasonal salads, and hot panini. But believe us when we say that what you’ll notice first is the dessert case. It’s almost overwhelming how tempting the selection of homemade treats can be. For starters, the cobblers are crowned with homemade crust and come in a wide selection. Enjoy peach, raspberry, rhubarb, gooseberry, cherry, apple, and many more. Even the simple cookie gets a glamorous makeover here. Try the campfire cookie (an update on the classic s’more) or one of the oatmeal cookies topped with icing. There are muffins, breads, cakes, pies, and cupcakes. You won’t find espresso here, but you can enjoy a large coffee and a handful of baked goods to share.
