Top 6 Coffeehouses in New Orleans
Pulp and Grind

Fair Grinds Coffeehouse
A funky, inviting spot in Mid City, Fair Grinds is New Orleans' only 100% Fair Trade coffeehouse - exclusively serving Fair Trade coffee, tea, and chocolate. The inviting two-story Ponce de Leon Street establishment's name is a play on the name of the nearby racetrack. 3133 Ponce de Leon Street.
Stumptown Coffee Roasters
Located in the new Ace Hotel. Cold Brew is the primary focus at Stumptown - think nitrogen-infused cold brew and mixed coffee drinks poured from a brass and marble tap system. The cafe also makes coffee cocktails, like the refreshing mint julep-inspired Endless Summer with nitro-charged cold brew, mint simple syrup and sparkling water. 610 Carondelet Street.
Known for its iced coffee, this funky Magazine Street coffee shop has turned its small coffee roaster into a local powerhouse, having transitioned from roasting for its shop only to selling its product in stores all over town.
