Manzanita sources direct-trade beans from small farms, uses an eco-conscious roasting machine, and composts all waste. They also host roasting demos on Wednesdays.

This family-owned spot is more like a community gathering place. V’s Coffee and Charcuterie is the on-site café, their parking lot hosts the local farmers’ market on Fridays, and you can sip sangiovese while listening to live music on Sundays.

With more than 50 brews on tap, this strip mall spot is big on beers—and indulgent eats. Try the fried cheese curds or the Burger of the Gods, a grass-fed patty with bacon, pesto, and aioli.
