6 Top Spots for Coffee in Galveston

At BeachBox, we consider it our personal responsibility to point you in the right direction. Not only for a place to stay on the Texas Gulf Coast— but where to eat and shop, too. In previous blog posts, we’ve shared with you some of our favorite spots to savor the local seafood, nosh on a juicy burger, sip a happy hour cocktail, and pick up a souvenir or two.

Now, we’re ready to spill the beans— pun intended— on one of our favorite local pastimes. In Galveston, we take our coffee very seriously. You could even call us coffee connoisseurs. And while renting a BeachBox home means you can easily brew your own coffee while still in your pajamas, we encourage you to take a “taste drive” of some of our local brewing grounds.

MOD Coffeehouse

2126 Postoffice Street 

It’s fitting that we start our coffee shop tour at MOD Coffeehouse, since they won the 2020 gold medal for Best Coffeeshop in Galveston. Specialty lattes include an Almond Joy, Grasshopper, and Honey Bee. There’s also a latte called the “Just Trust Me” which can be a fun gamble. Then there are the baked goods— like lavender lemon cookies and cinnamon rolls. You’ll also want to try The Dream Bar, which is layers of chocolate chips, coconut, and pecans piled high on a graham cracker crust and drizzled with condensed milk.

You can even stop by MOD for a light lunch. They have an assortment of yummy croissant sandwiches and vegan options to choose from. Stop by their patio on Friday and Saturday evenings for free live music, too. 

Red Light Coffee Roasters

2728 Market Street

Located on a sunny street corner in the heart of downtown Galveston, Red Light Coffee Roasters is a local favorite spot for a java fix. The building that houses the roasters is rich in history— it was originally a bordello that became a gambling hall and liquor store in the 1940s. 

Menu items include classic drip coffee, vanilla lattes, mocha lattes, cappuccino, flat whites, kombucha, and cold brews. They also have a revolving door of delicious bakery treats including muffins, croissants, and cookies. You’ll want to stop by and try out their patio swings, too.

Sugar Bean Coffee & Cream

11 Evia Main

Tucked into the idyllic neighborhood of Evia on the west end of Galveston, Sugar Bean Coffee & Cream has been serving the Texas Gulf Coast since 2007. Their atmosphere is ideal for a casual get-together with friends or a quiet place to study for students. 

Besides delicious coffee, Sugar Bean also serves fresh fruit smoothies like chocolate-peanut butter-banana and blueberry-cherry. They also serve yummy Blue Bell ice cream in waffle cones. 

Je Mocha Bean Coffee and Wine Bar

16708 Termini – San Luis Pass Road Suite F, Jamaica Beach

This cute little coffee shop recently opened in Jamaica Beach and is quickly gaining a stellar reputation with locals and visitors alike. With a gorgeous selection of specialty coffees, teas, danishes, croissants, and muffins, this is a great spot for your local coffee fix.

But Je Mocha doesn’t stop there — they also have a full menu of wines and craft beers. From Pinot Grigio to Riesling to Merlot, these guys have it all plus some yummy IPAs too. And when the temperatures heat up this summer, stop in for a gourmet popsicle or two!
