We visited the fast-paced New York and drank ice lattes on the sunny beaches of Miami. Now, it is time for the glittering gem of Nevada desert to shine. Las Vegas was never famous for its coffee, since the hot sun and hot coffee doesn’t really go hand to hand with each other.
But with the evolution of coffee brewing, the two can finally live together. Until a few years ago, finding a non-generic coffee in this city was almost impossible. But with coffee’s ever rising popularity in the world, it was just a matter of time before it gained some foothold in here as well.
If you are planning a trip to Vegas, you will need good coffee to keep you winded. Even those who are not into casinos and nightlife, but just true coffee lovers, will be surprised to find that there are some special cafés in this city. So take a chance and follow us on a caffeine-filled journey to find the best ones. Because after all, this is Vegas, baby!

This café, located in a mall, is a great place to take a break from shopping or gambling. The front is nothing special, just with a stylish doorway and the café name written on top of it.
Interior is clean but relatively narrow, so do not expect to find a lot of sitting room. There are a couple of tables next to the wall, but this café is mostly meant as a take-out. Overall décor is pretty and is pleasant to the eye. It has a fast food feel to it.

The Perq is located in an SLS Las Vegas Hotel, right between the lobby and the casino. Great if you want to replenish some energy after the famous Las Vegas casino night.

Since Perq is part of the hotel, the café looks very stylish and classy. The most dominating thing in it is the dark wood décor.

The staff is working hard so there are no huge lines for the coffee.

Like most of the cafés in Las Vegas, Seattle’s Best can be found inside a hotel. Southpoint Hotel and Casino to be exact. Style of its interior is awesome, looking like a steampunk mixture of a factory and café. The brown tones that are prevailing shouldn’t look as good as it does. With many brewing machines around the café, any hardcore coffee fan will feel like being in a candy store.
The Staff working there is trained well to use all the brewing methods that this place offers. They will always greet you with a smile and a helping hand in picking the right flavor for you.

- Telephone: n/a
- Opening hours: n/a
- More information about the coffee house: http://www.orleanscasino.com/
This café is located in the Orleans Hotel & Casino, close to the strip, but still not too close to it to be too crowded and too expensive.
Since it is a part of the hotel, the café is not in a shop, but integrated into the hotel interior. A small piece of coffee paradise to help you rest. There’s a long table and a few small ones placed for maximum enjoyment.
The coffee menu in the Java Vegas café is very similar to Starbucks, who is, in fact, Java’s retailer. So if you are a fan of it, you cannot go wrong here. Since it is very much like Starbucks, you would expect prices to be a bit high. Luckily that is not the case, as they are quite reasonable.
Good hotel café should offer a rich breakfast menu, which this one does. There are a lot of great meals to choose from like oatmeal, sandwiches or croissants. There is even something for people that like sugary treats like muffins (chocolate, blueberry, etc.), doughnuts or sweet yogurts.
Great place if you are staying at the Orleans hotel, but also if you are in the vicinity and want a good cup of coffee.

Coffee Pub is actually placed in a big yellow house, redecorated to be a café. The front yard is filled with tables and chairs, with a conveniently placed tree and some sunshades to help guests deal with the hot Las Vegas days.
Interior also has a homey feeling to it. Nice shades of green-colored walls, children’s drawings everywhere. Very good idea to stand out of the crowd of casino oriented cafés. Excellent service, the staff will treat you like an old customer, even if you just got there. It all adds to the perfect home alike atmosphere, that this place does well.
Coffee selection is from all over the world, with many blends available to order. But most popular among them have to be Frozen Coffee Favorites, that are like coffee smoothies.

Inside the Bellagio Hotel on the Strip, you can find this oriental gem. You will not miss the big Palio sign standing over the entrance, between two big flags.
