Joe That'll Blow You Away

Hunting & Gathering


A locally-owned coffee shop with a drive-thru window is quite the rarity; perched beside Saltwater Cafe, Coffee Breeze challenges the norm with its warm ambience and cordiality, and sets itself apart from chains like Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts that usually take the cake within the convenience department. Satisfy both your sweet tooth and caffeine cravings with a whirlwind of the finest brews, from bold espresso and spiced chai lattes, to a plethora of teas, treats and richly blended drinks flavored with pistachio, horchata, s’mores and more.

Beyond the enticing showcase displaying decadent cupcakes, croissants, bear claws and other pastries, perhaps what captures the eye is the peculiar selection of coffee syrups.  In addition to classics such as vanilla, hazelnut, caramel and coconut, customers can choose from marshmallow, raspberry, strawberry, wildberry and lavender. With these funky flavors have come innovative concoctions such as the upside-down lavender vanilla iced latte. Beneath a bed of velvety espresso ooze layers of lavender and vanilla, delivering earthy and indulgent notes–all made complete with a splash of milk for added smoothness.

Coffee Breeze accommodates its gluten-free and vegan guests with several delicacies, including superfood cheesecakes and the vegan mocha macchiato. Get comfy during your visit at Coffee Breeze with one of the many savory sandwiches and pressed paninis. Opt for this hotspot for your next java stop when unwinding with a friend, making yourselves right at home on one of the many plush couches, or along your morning commute without stepping foot beyond your vehicle.
