Most days are full of Disneyland fun or sunny beach days, and evenings are full of fabulous dining and shopping options when visiting the Anaheim area. We're here to serve up the truth about the pure way to drink coffee; black, with no cream and no sugar. So whether you need a morning pick-me-up or an afternoon fantasy adventure to keep you going, here's a guide to finding your perfect cup-o-coffee in Anaheim.
Great Spots to Grab the Best Coffee Near Disneyland
You might recognize Maddie's for their fantastic Korean barbecue bulgogi. But hang with us for a minute because you need to check out their Vietnamese coffee. If you haven't experienced the joys of Vietnamese coffee yet, there's no time like the present.
Vietnamese coffee is made with Robusta beans, which have a much higher caffeine content than standard Arabicas. Plus, they brew it slowly. The result is a lovely, thick, and potent brew with a distinctive taste. Maddie specializes in iced versions with sweet cream, and it makes a wonderful treat on a hot day with sweet cream.
Proudly serving Groundworks organic, ethically sourced, and fair-trade coffees and teas, Okayama Kobo has a delicious assortment of drip and espresso options to swoon over. They also serve some delightful coffee alternatives, like chai lattes and jasmine, and oolong teas. Be sure to check out their specialty coffees, especially the delicious lavender latte. For a pick-me-up on a hot afternoon, try the matcha sea salt cold brew!
It's always best to have something to wash down with your coffee, of course, and Okayama Kobo's bakery has many luscious treats to tempt you. Whether you pick a savory or a sweet, you can't go wrong with the fresh-baked artistry you'll find here.
Fresh, fair-trade ingredients served with a Taiwanese twist are the specialty of the house at AllMyTea Cafe. And while we're focusing on coffees for this list, we have to give a shout-out to their tea creations because this is the best spot to find hojicha in Anaheim. The charcoal-roasted green tea from Japan's Kyoto prefecture comes in lattes or blended with espresso for the Caffe Hojicha. They also serve all the staple loose-leaf luxury teas you'd expect, like oolong, green, and many varieties of black.
But coffee lovers won't be disappointed, either. Any espresso creation you crave can be whipped up by AllMyTea, with the same care, attention to detail, and quality ingredients they put towards everything they do.
You would imagine that the best coffee near Disneyland would have a little bit of magic and fantasy involved, right? Well, you aren't wrong. Stop by Requiem and be bewitched by the experience of your coffee. Their brews are more like potions, and their cafe is more like an amusement park.
Where can a Requiem potion take you? Start in the fairy forest and escape to the safety of the castle fortress. If the future is more your style, check out the steampunk coffee bar or the sci-fi gaming area.
Requiem is a full-blow art experience and is much more than just a coffee shop. It's also not the best place to grab a quick morning cup of joe since they don't open until noon or later.
If coffee is the beverage and you're after a full homestyle-cooked breakfast, head over to S & J Gran Cafe. This family-owned Mexican breakfast spot serves all the stapes, from giant breakfast burritos to hotcakes and French toast. And as you would expect, the huevos and chilaquiles are outstanding. The food is delicious, and the cafe is cozy and warm. If you need to bulk up for a long day at the park, there's no better place than S & J Gran Cafe.
Enjoy the Best Bean Juice in Town
As you can see, Anaheim has some great coffee joints, and most of them are located off the I-5 freeway, so grab a cup or two and enjoy your stay.
