The Youngstown area is home to some fantastic spots when it comes to great coffee (from experienced roasters to long-standing, locally owned favorites). So, rather than visit the typical corporate-chain-type coffee shop, why not try something truly unique?!
Coffee Roastery Options for the Win!
If you’re in search of some of the best coffee shops in and around Youngstown, OH, you’ve stumbled upon the right blog! Whether you’re in search of the perfect latte or a unique gift card option for your best friend, these coffee roasters are a great place to start.
Stone Fruit Coffee
A group of friends founded Stone Fruit Coffee in 2015, and since then, this local favorite has expanded to include stores in Boardman, Canfield, Poland, the YSU campus, and a brand new location inside Steel Valley Brew Works (at DeBartolo Commons) in the Southern Park Mall. When you visit Steel Valley Brew Works, don’t miss the massive Diedrich coffee roaster as you enter – it’s capable of roasting three million pounds of coffee beans a year!
They roast their beans in-house, and name their coffees after recognizable Youngstown landmarks and events (such as Smoky Hollow, Black Monday, and Brier Hill). Can it get much better than that?
Besides coffee, you can also try a selection of toasts and toppings to pair with your brew, along with baked goods. If you’re in a rush, the Canfield and Poland locations have a convenient drive-thru service.
When you visit the Steel Valley Brew Works location, you can also enjoy billiards, bocce, pinball, and their selection or appetizers, flatbreads, salads, and paninis!
Branch Street Coffee Roasters
Branch Street Coffee Roasters was named to Food & Wine Magazine’s 2019 list of the best coffee in every state. From its location on Boardman-Canfield Rd., Branch Street imports and roasts its beans in order to give every customer a unique coffee experience. You can also find tea and brewing equipment at Branch Street, as well as whole beans that you can grind at home.
High Octane Coffee Co.
High Octane Coffee Co.’s Boardman and Austintown locations aren’t the norm when it comes to coffee shops. Both locations are completely decked out in motorsports-themed decor, and the Boardman store is even located in a refurbished 1950’s service station!
High Octane’s coffees are roasted in-house, sporting names like “Hammer Down,” “Gasoline Alley,” and “Victory Lane.” The shops also feature sweet treats like locally made ice cream, donuts from White House Fruit Farm, and delicious breakfast sandwiches!
Culture House Coffee Co.
Culture House Coffee Co. roasts all of their beans at their shop on Youngstown’s North Side, bringing recognition to the origins of their coffee beans while also making sure their visitors have an amazing cup of coffee!
