We think any good beach vacation should include a leisurely morning at the coffee shop, lingering over the paper and some pastry. While you can certainly enjoy your coffee overlooking the water at our boutique hotel Blue on Plum Island, the nearby town of Newburyport has several coffee shops you can swing by for an iced coffee on your way to the beach. Here are our recommendations for three of the best coffee shops in Newburyport:
This downtown Newburyport coffee shop is located in a boat yard, which means you can sit outside with your coffee and enjoy the waterfront view. Plum Island Coffee Roasters roasts their own beans, so if you find your favorite roast while visiting, you can take a taste of one of the best coffee shops in Newburyport home with you.
Hardcore coffee fanatics will love that this café serves Counter Culture Coffee, North Carolina's popular third-wave coffee roaster. If you're also looking for a light breakfast or lunch, this coffee shop is a great stop. You can relax at one of Commune Café's many tables with a selection from their menu of sweet and savory crêpes.
With several locations around the North Shore, Atomic Coffee makes the list of best coffee shops in Newburyport for its serious approach to roasting and brewing coffee. Located in a beautifully renovated historic building, Atomic Coffee is another great spot for lunch, with a menu of sandwiches and salads. Open until 9pm on Friday and Saturday, you can even stop in for a drink as they serve beer and wine too.
