Keep Caffeinated at These Seven Walla Walla Coffee Shops

You may have come to Walla Walla for the wine, but there’s no better way to start your day here than with a great cup of coffee. Before you hit the wine-tasting trail, explore one of the wonderful coffee shops that we have to offer. Whether you’re looking for a great “meet for coffee” spot or just a great cup to go – this list has you covered.

  1. Coffee Perk: Located in the heart of downtown, this Walla Walla staple has been in operation since 1995 and is one of the city’s oldest espresso cafes. The pastry case is overflowing with baked goods, cookies, and other delights. Coffee Perk serves locally roasted coffee and espresso by Dyer Straits Coffee, as well as bubble teas and wellness lattes.

  1. Livit Coffee Co.: Serving fresh whole fruit smoothies and light breakfast options, Livit is a laid-back coffee shop that shares a space with Bicycle Barn, the bike shop next door. They specialize mostly in Guatemalan Specialty coffees, and their Maple Almond Latte has a cult following. We highly recommend their avocado toast.

  1. Walla Walla Roastery: Located less than half a mile down from the airport, the Walla Walla Roastery makes a great first stop if you’re flying in for your visit! The Roastery sources its coffees from farms all over the world and roasts all of its coffee blends on-site. They have a great patio with fire pits to cozy up on in the wintertime (or enjoy the sunshine on in the summer).
