Resident friends meeting for coffee at their favorite café near The Slate in Savannah, Georgia



Did you know that 83 percent of American adults drink coffee?

Combined, they consume 587 million cups every day.

If you would like to enjoy a cup of Joe, the best coffee shops near our Savannah apartments include:


When friends Libby and Gay decided to enjoy life one cup at a time, the Friendship Coffee Company was born. It features a dynamic menu and exciting events that draw locals and visitors alike. The Arabica coffee beans are roasted in small batches, while the chefs prepare their house-made recipes from the finest, freshest ingredients. Daily brews include Indonesian Sumatra, honey roast, and southern pecan praline. Enjoy them with the three egg scrambles or a hearty bowl of French onion soup.


Bitty & Beau's boasts that it's "more than just a place to grab a cup of coffee - it's an experience." The shop is run by individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and creates a culture that celebrates diversity. Founder Amy Wright was named the 2017 CNN Hero of the Year. Her two children with down syndrome inspired her to establish the company, and she dedicates her life to making the world a better place. Bitty & Beau's boasts a five-star rating on Yelp and is the official coffee of the Rachael Ray Show. Offerings include cappuccinos, lattes, and mochas.


Called one of the best local coffee shops worth traveling for, Sentient Bean serves fair trade coffee and thoughtfully sourced food. It offers events meant to connect our community and a laid-back atmosphere where strangers become friends. The shop is open daily, and on Sundays from 9:00 a.m. to noon, the chefs prepare a special brunch featuring seasonal ingredients from the Forsyth Farmers Market. Coffee choices include Americano, Cortado, and Shakeratto.
