It doesn’t get much more local than these two sister companies, The Coffee Fox and Foxy Loxy. Founded by a SCAD graduate, these cafes are quickly becoming staples of local Savannians. They keep things even more local by brewing Savannah’s own Perc coffee. The food? Foxy is notorious for their creative and tasty tacos plus the usual cafe fare. The Coffee Fox focuses on amazing coffee creations with their “Light Bites” menu to compliment those flavors. Both of these locations are decked out in eclectic art, and the environment is the perfect study spot for students and busy bees. Stop by both locations and pick up a delicious horchata latte with a delicious kolache from the bakery to start your day downtown.
Friendship Coffee Company knows that coffee brings people together. They use fair trade ingredients and partner with local Savannah Bee Company to sweeten up their coffee. I found them at the Wilmington Island Farmer’s Market where they had bottled iced coffee for sale.You can stop by their shop on Victory Drive or visit a number of retailers to pick some up for yourself.
A few steps away from Forsyth park lies the Sentient Bean, one of Savannah’s most green conscientious coffee shops.The Bean uses fair trade coffee (coffee sourced through mediums that promote sustainability and growth for farmers) while also having a variety of vegan and vegetarian menu items. See our review on some of those delectables here. While you’re there be sure to check out the back patio for a nice change of scenery. The Sentient Bean also has a minimalist atmosphere with tons of seating to get some work done or relax with your next bookstore find.
