Coffee Shops in Barnstable

As the sun comes up on each morning of your Cape Cod vacation, finding that perfect cup of coffee is essential.

Sure, you could brew a cup yourself in your vacation rental, but maybe you want to get out to explore the Cape and try some local coffee shops.

But with so many choices, where do you go?

In Barnstable, locals definitely have their favorites, so here are the top five coffee shops in Cape Cod’s only city.

1) Nirvana Coffee Company

Located on Main Street in the heart of Barnstable Village, Nirvana Coffee Company is a must-visit during your Cape Cod vacation.

For starters, the coffee shop sits in a converted, historic house, which is reason enough to want to go inside for a cup.

In addition, Nirvana Coffee Company has some of the Cape's best brews, along with breakfast sandwiches, a lunch menu, and iced drinks to enjoy on warmer days.

In short, Nirvana offers everything you could ever want from a coffee shop, and the friendly atmosphere and historic venue just add to its charming vibe.

2) Marylou's Coffee

Located right along Iyannough Road in Hyannis, Marylou's Coffee is almost impossible to miss because of its bright pink decor. As you drive past, you're sure to see the pink sign, and once you head inside, you'll see that their commitment to pink continues there, as well.

Marylou's Coffee is a chain with locations all over Massachusetts, including a second Cape Cod store in Sandwich. It has become a local favorite in Hyannis, however, because it serves perhaps the best coffee in town, in addition to iced drinks, smoothies, teas, and seasonal favorites.

Of course, if you're looking for a quick meal in the morning, you'll find pastries, bagels, breakfast sandwiches, and donuts at Marylou's Coffee, too. You can also take a bag of coffee back to your vacation rental, so you don't have to head out the next morning to find the perfect cup of coffee.

3) Pain D'Avignon Restaurant Boulangerie

Pain D'Avignon is a little different from the other venues on this list because it's both a bakery and a restaurant. If you show up in the morning between 7:00 and 11:00 AM, Pain D'Avignon has a coffee shop vibe to it, with a variety of French-style breakfasts available, in addition to fresh pastries and coffee.

On Sundays, the restaurant serves brunch between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM, as well.

Then, in the evenings, Pain D'Avignon becomes a French bistro offering some of the Cape's best cuisine.

When stopping by for a coffee in the morning, you'll quickly see why Pain D'Avignon is so popular, and its location near the Cape Cod Mall makes it easily accessible throughout your time in Barnstable.

4) The Daily Paper

There are two The Daily Paper location in Hyannis: one on Main Street near the harbor and another on West Main Street beside the Barnstable Performing Arts Center.

Both locations are open from 6:00 AM until 2:00 PM Monday through Saturday, with reduced hours on Sundays, and both are known for their classic coffee shop atmosphere.

The coffee at The Daily Paper is from Beanstock Coffee Roasters of Wellfleet, so you know you're getting something local every time you visit. They also try to source as much of their food locally as possible.

Speaking of the food, The Daily Paper has an extensive breakfast menu featuring just about anything you could ever want in the morning, and they have a lunch menu, too.

If you're in the Hyannis area, it's worth stopping by this local favorite for a quick cup of coffee or an entire meal.

5) Starbucks

Yes, this is just another franchise in the international Starbucks chain, but people in Barnstable love it for one simple reason: they know what to expect.

If you're a fan of Starbucks, there won't be any surprises here, as you can order the same menu items that you enjoy at home, so you're not taking a risk with your morning coffee.

The main Starbucks in Barnstable sits on Iyannough Road, just outside the Cape Cod Mall, but there is another store inside the mall, as well.

There's no reason why your Cape Cod vacation should prevent you from getting your Starbucks fix, and, luckily, Barnstable has you covered.

Coffee and More

As you can tell, Barnstable has a variety of coffee shops, with each having a different atmosphere and a unique way of doing things. 

If you’re into enjoying a local cup of coffee with a diner-style meal, you’re in luck.

Likewise, if you’d rather have the same coffee that you order at home, Cape Cod has options for you, as well.

The good news is that you can try a different coffee shop every day in Barnstable because there are so many from which to choose.
