The Best Cafés and Coffee Shops in Richmond

You may be here because you clicked on “The 12 Best Cafés and Coffee Shops in Richmond.” Well, you’re in luck, because the list has only expanded – which is why the name has changed. This will be an ever-growing list!

It might be the heavy influence of Lorelei Gilmore, but sometimes I feel more at peace in a café or coffee shop than in my own home.

Being self-employed means I often need to get out of my typical surroundings to feel inspired and motivated. A few years back, I began my search for the best spots in RVA to meet up with a friend, get some work done, or just enjoy a cup of coffee or chai.

Whether you’re a Richmond native or you’re reading this from another part of the country (or the world), I’m sure you can understand my deep-rooted love for a good cup of something delicious. That might not be coffee for you. Maybe you’re into tea or chai lattes, or you’re a hot chocolate person! (I don’t judge) One way or another, you’re bound to find something to enjoy at one of the spots listed below. And if you are from RVA, let me know if I’ve missed your favorite and I’ll go check it out!

The Best Cafés and Coffee Shops in Richmond

Perk! Coffee & Lunchbox

If Brandon and I are craving an early-morning work sesh, we head here because their breakfast sandwiches are delish and the vibe is super welcoming. This has definitely become my favorite café, and without fail, you will find me sitting in one of their comfy lounge chairs every Tuesday with my father, sipping a medium cold brew with cream. It’s become tradition!

Ironclad Coffee Roasters

This is a relatively new coffee shop in RVA, but already making an impact. The vibe is so friendly and warm, with smooth jazz playing while you sip your drink, enjoy a muffin, and sit comfortably on one of their couches!

Lamplighter

Considering the fact that a good iced chai latte is my favorite drink on the planet, I try that each time I’m visiting a new spot. So far, Lamplighter has won best in the book, and I’m a massive fan of their Morris St. location (though they do have three spots to visit).

Bravo Rocco Italian Café

This super cute spot is a hidden gem in Stony Point Fashion Park. It’s a relaxing escape in the middle of a busy day of shopping. Enjoy an iced latte with sweet Italian cream, sit back and listen to Andrea Bocelli serenade you, and make sure to snap a pic with their fun, patterned wallpaper!

Capital One Café

Alright, now I know this isn’t a “local” coffee shop, but it’s certainly one of my favorites – specifically the Cary St. location. My husband and I love to bring our laptops to work here, with a cup of Peet’s coffee in hand! There’s so much open space, and we can even take breaks to play a board game if we so choose.

Stir Crazy Café

Relatively recently renovated – but having been in Richmond for over fifteen years – this spot is spacious and inviting. The staff is one of the friendliest, and they have a bangin’ selection of board games if your mind needs a break from work. It’s also a fantastic place to hang out with friends!

Central Purrk

If you’re a crazy cat lady like I am, you’ll love the fact that after grabbing your cup of joe, you can head next door to play with the cats (and even bring one home) at this cat café named creatively after the famous spot on Friends.

Sefton Coffee Co.

Talk about cute! I discovered this spot when I took my first ever blog/Insta hiatus, and was quickly obsessed. They stand out as such a home-y, comforting place in the middle of bustling downtown Richmond.

Sugar & Twine

Probably one of the busiest spots in Richmond, this little coffee shop is located in Carytown and has some of the yummiest goodies. I have to get a snickerdoodle cookie every time I go. Just be warned: it’s nearly always packed, so check Google for their busiest times and plan to make friends with the person seated very closely next to you.

Crossroads Coffee & Ice Cream

I’ve been going to Crossroads since I was eighteen years old. It became like a second home to me. At one point, I was going there so frequently that every person on the staff knew my name, and I even befriended the owner’s mother. It’s always a good place to enjoy a good grilled cheese, a game of Pac-Man, and some live music.

North End Juice Co.

This bright, colorful, and healthy café has three locations now! If you like smoothie bowls, great cold brew, and cheery atmospheres, be sure to visit here!

The Urban Farmhouse Market & Café

With multiple locations, and the best waffles in RVA, this is one of my favorite spots to meet up with friends. However, I don’t recommend it as a work location, because they’re known for their spotty wi-fi!

ShoreDog Café

This spot is a little out of the way from my typical ventures, but I really enjoy the bright and open setting and fact that there’s rarely a huge crowd.

Lift Coffee Shop & Café

If you walk all the way through this café and onto their back patio, you’ll find a wall with the iconic Colette Miller angel wings. It’s a good spot for a photo op, and they have some of the yummiest flavored drinks to give you energy while you work.

Whisk

Their light and airy environment, delicious macarons, and yummiest mocha latte have me listing this as one of the top spots in Richmond. It’s incredibly Instagrammable, inside and out!

Captain Buzzy’s Beanery

A couple of years back, I was introduced to this coffee shop when they got to “dress up” as Luke’s Diner from Gilmore Girls! It was so fun to go and see everyone in their plaid shirts and backwards baseball caps. I also discovered they have some pretty yummy treats!

Hot Diggity Donuts

Definitely in the running for the cutest café award, this little shop mixes retro styles with modern aesthetics that make every corner Insta-worthy. Not to mention their handmade sourdough donuts (and literally everything else on their menu) are to die for!

Chairlift at Brenner Pass

Each time I visit a new café, I try their chai lattes. It’s my favorite drink, so this is the deciding factor on whether or not a place is good enough to come back to. Let’s just say, I’ll be back here plenty!

Sub Rosa Bakery

I’ve only been here once, but the calm atmosphere made me want to come back again and again (I need to make that happen). They not only offer delicious beverages, but also treats from their wood-fired bakery! You’ll love their croissants with your coffee.

Alchemy Coffee

This is a really cool, modern coffee shop in the heart of VCU District. The owner moved from Portland to Richmond and took their business from mobile trailer to a brick and mortar a few years of testing the waters. They’ve got a delicious iced chai and wonderful window seating for optimal people-watching.

Mon Chou Pâtisserie

For me, the appeal of Mon Chou is their atmosphere. They offer tea parties and adorable, tiny French pastries. They also have the coolest plant-filled café space, complete with Instagrammable neon signs, bohemian benches, and lo-fi/jazz playing on the stereo. Totally great spot to relax with a cup of tea!

    You seriously have picked some of the cutest spots!!! I have never been to Richmond but if I did visit, I would def be checking a lot of these places out! My husband drinks a ton of coffee (way more than I do), so I know he would love these shops just as much as I would.

    I totally agree! I find coffee shops so relaxing. It’s nice to get out of the house and around others, especially when you work from home. It seems like Richmond has so many great options!!

    If you’re ever in the West End, Cafespresso is a cute little hole in the wall place… Not the most aesthetic, but its a cool Italian-owned coffee place. Also, if you happen to be in Ashland, there’s a great place called Ashland Coffee & Tea that is great. If you like a nice scenic drive and a cute small town, Ashland is the place to go!

      Also, Black Hand is pretty good… Not the best, but pretty good.
