November is almost here and that means sweater weather and warm drinks! With so much to see and do on Amelia Island, getting properly fueled up is a must. Here are our favorite local coffee shops and cafes that have everything you need to either kick start your day, keep it going, or just keep you warm. 

Amelia Island Coffee 

Located in downtown Fernandina Beach, AMELIA ISLAND COFFEE is always up early. With a variety of hot and cold coffee and espresso drinks, organic teas, freshly baked pastries, and breakfast sandwiches and bagels, I’d say they have all your breakfast items covered. Grab a table or a seat on a comfy sofa and enjoy the eclectic vibe of “the coffee shop”.

Nana Teresa's Bake Shop

The perfect spot for a sweet treat and an espresso! Nana Teresa's Bake Shop has a nice selection of cupcakes, cannolis, eclairs, cookies, tarts, and cakes, as well as your choice of coffee, latte and espresso drinks. If you need a break from strolling the shops in downtown Fernandina Beach, this is a great place to take a load off!

Hola Cuban Café

Located on 5th and Ash Street in downtown Fernandina Beach, Hola Cuban Cafe serves up a flavorful breakfast and lunch with succulent slow roasted meats that are cooked in-house, Cuban style. Dine inside, on the porch, or on the back patio with a delicious array of Cuban sandwiches, pastries and most importantly - robust Cuban coffee! 

Mocama Coffee

Housed under the same roof as Mocama Beer Company, Mocama Coffee is open from 7am-3pm daily and is a great place to catch up with friends over a good cuppa joe. Utilizing state-of-the-art equipment to deliver premium espressos, drips, pour overs and other signature items, Mocama Coffee gets the day going!
