If you've spent any time with me, you'll soon discover that I'm a bit of a coffee connoisseur. It doesn't matter how it's served; Hot, cold or frapped is fine with me. When I travel, I always keep an eye open for local coffee shops to kick back, smell the aroma and sip on a caffeine treat. 

Speaking of local coffee shops, I have a few in downtown Pensacola I'd like to share. 

The first local coffee shop, The Bodacious Brew, is located on the corner of Palafox and Main St. It’s just a short walk to the beautiful Pensacola Bayfront Stadium and our scenic waterfront. This coffee shop has a nice open atmosphere with inside seating and a two outdoor patios for those lovely Pensacola days. Bodacious Brew has food and friendly baristas to create you a handsome coffee treat. Some of my favorite brews are the Angelino, a tasty iced mocha, and their pour-over coffee. Hungry? Try treating yourself to a good selection of fresh wraps, quiches, and sandwiches for breakfast and lunch. The Bodacious Brew Heading north on Palafox another coffee shop I enjoy stopping by is Polonza Bistro, located on the corner of Palafox and E. Wright St. As the name implies, they’ve got food and coffee. You can sit down and enjoy a meal or grab a seat at the coffee bar, where you can order one of your favorite coffee drinks. My favorites are the Iced Mocha and brewed coffee. I hear they have an Iced Honey Latte that is pretty amazing. I’ll add that to my bucket list for my next visit.Polonza BistroIf a stroll through Pensacola’s historic village is on your list, then you’ll want to stop by Bishops Coffee and Tea. The coffee shop is located right outside of beautiful Historic Pensacola Village in a historic house off South Alcaniz St. Bishops serves coffee, tea and a few tasty treats for patrons to enjoy. One of my favorite features of this coffee shop is the front patio that overlooks the beautiful surroundings. I love to sit and sip on that patio. Bishops Coffee & Tea 

Located on Palafox St., our award-winning street, is Fosko Coffee Barr. Grab a Fit Frappe, Honey Latte or an Iced Mocha; you won't go wrong with any of the drinks. 

Now that you’re craving a caffeinated fix, you’ll have to visit. The baristas are waiting to brew up a fancy coffee just for you. Let us know which is your favorite.
