The 10 Coolest Coffee Shops in Arkansas!

Arkansas is a natural when it comes to rich and flavorful coffee shops. From beans and brewers, to baristas and drinkers, coffee is cool (and hot, of course!) in the Natural State. If coffee is your cup of tea (wink wink), then you’ll love these 10 coolest coffee shops in Arkansas.

1. Mug Shots Express Coffee, Hot Springs, AR

This cool café is dedicated to “natural coffee in the Natural State.” Mugshots keeps coffee close by partnering with other Ozark Mountain companies like Fayetteville’s Arsaga’s Coffee Roasters and pink House alchemy

2. Blue Sail Coffee, Conway, AR

This cool coffee shop, located at 1208 Front Street in Conway, has set sail on a mission to change the coffee culture in the Central Arkansas community. This shop works with a group called the Long Miles Coffee Project to ethically acquire coffee.

3. Onyx Coffee Lab, Multiple locations

In the Onyx Coffee Labs, where science and art collide, education plays a huge role. Not only are the baristas knowledgeable about what they are serving, but Onyx also offers brewing classes and a home brewers association.

4. Mud Street Café, Eureka Springs, AR

The history in this timeless town is as rich as the coffee that’s served at 22 South Main Street in Eureka Springs. This hip café, in an area the locals call “Underground Eureka,” is well-known for its award-winning coffee, espresso drinks, desserts, and food.

5. Mama Carmen’s Espresso Café, Fayetteville, AR

Beauty is brewing in a coffee house located at 2850 North College Ave. Mama Carmen’s Coffee runs on inspiration they get from Mama Carmen, a woman who provides a source of income to help care for orphaned street kids in Guatemala by growing coffee.

6. The Joint Theater and Coffeehouse, North Little Rock, AR

One perk of this coffee shop is that they keep coffee in the Central Arkansas community: all The Joint’s coffee is roasted locally in Fox, Arkansas. This coffee shop offers live entertainment five nights a week.

7. Pour Jon’s Coffee & Vinyl Shoppe, Siloam Springs, AR

They’re doing something right at this coffee shop in Siloam Springs. Pour Jon’s wants to get to know you but don’t expect an answer if you call. Their number is text only. The “London Pub meets Urban Brick” atmosphere of this coffee bar invites coffee lovers to come in expecting an experience.

8. River City Coffee Shop, Little Rock, AR

Conveniently located at 2913 Kavanaugh Boulevard, this Little Rock coffee shop has been part of the Hillcrest neighborhood for more than four decades now. Voted “Best Coffee Little Rock” in the Arkansas Times Reader’s Choice Awards, the coffee community is obviously cool with River City’s long-term residency in this area.

9. Sweet Bay Coffee Co., Fort Smith, Van Buren, AR

Sweet Bay Coffee Shop began serving coffee with smile in the River Valley area in 1996. With three Fort Smith locations on Rogers Avenue and a shop in Van Buren, Sweet Bay provides easy access to some of the best coffee, sandwiches and wraps in these two historic cities. Sweet Bay Coffee is known in the River Valley as one of the area’s top gourmet caterers and cooking ambassadors.

10. The Edge Coffee House, Jonesboro, AR

The Edge earns coolness points on drink names alone, names like “Heming’s Way,” “Chocolatework Orange,” and “The Princess Gingerbride.” But it’s the hometown feeling that keeps drawing in the college crowd in Jonesboro. You can find The Edge Coffee House, “where great coffee and drinks rule,” at 1900 Aggie Road.
