If there’s one thing Huntsville can’t get enough of, it’s coffee. And we have plenty of it! Whether you’re into lattes, dark roasts, espresso, sweet frappes, or simple drip coffee to get your day going, you can find it in the Rocket City.
How to participate in the Huntsville Coffee Trail:
It’s very simple! Anyone who wants to experience the trail can grab a card at any of the coffee shops that are featured on the tour: Canadian Bakin, Honest Coffee Roasters, Offbeat Coffee Studio, Piper and Leaf at Constitution Park, Olde Towne Coffee, The Moon Bakeshop, Pizzelle's Confections, Mason Dixon Bakery, Bakingtist Bakery, Turbo Coffee, and Dragon Forge Cafe.
Visit all of the shops and stamp your card with an order. Once completed, email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your trail prizes.
Don’t worry about drinking 11 coffees back to back—unless you want to (we won’t judge). Anyone can complete the trail at their own pace in a week, month, or even year! It’s a fun way to enjoy the Downtown coffee scene at your leisure. Plus, you see all of the delicious options that are available.
