When visiting a new city, the first thing many travelers do is find the best place to get a cup of coffee. While many hotels are turning to higher end brands, it's just not the same as what you can find at a coffee shop that truly cares about how beans are sourced and prepared.
As a rare true independent coffee shop on the Strip, Sambalatte is found in the outdoor courtyard of the Monte Carlo - and will hopefully stick around after the resort is remodeled and rebranded as The Park MGM over the next few months. Sambalatte has an in-house roasting facility that processes carefully sourced beans from around the world. The ones from Brazil are especially flavorful. For a little extra fun, ask for the colorful Rainbow Latte. Other Sambalatte locations are in Boca Park near Summerlin and by Jones & Interstate 215.
The Coffee Stand at the D
Nestled inside the D Las Vegas, this hotel hotspot is the best option for coffee alongside the tourist-driven Fremont Street Experience. The product comes from Zingerman's Coffee in Ann Arbour, Michigan and features beans from Honduras, Mexico, Zimbabwe and other global destinations. Starting at just $2.25 for a regularly brewed cup, this coffee is one of the best deals in Las Vegas.
PublicUs has earned a reputation for creativity and inventiveness in a quiet area of downtown away from the tourist crowds. The baristas are more like bartenders - always ready to discuss the perfect custom creation for your tastes. Favorites include a unique spin on an Old Fashioned (with espresso in place of whiskey) and a Macadamia Nut Latte made with a real nut paste in place of syrup. Make sure to try the house-made selection of sandwiches and pastries as well.
Makers & Finders
Head to the Downtown Arts District, where Makers & Finders offers an eclectic mix of coffee concoctions. The Mexican Spice Latte features four actual dry spices in the mix while sweeter drinks feature house-made syrups. Every hot coffee is made with a pour over. Make sure to stop by for the delicious Latin Brunch on Sundays.
