Espresso Month picks in Burbank

It’s Espresso Month and Burbank’s got some great places to get your caffeine fix. Whether you’re looking for a quick cup to get your day going, or a great place to curl up with a mocha and a book, Burbank has some great local spots besides the well-known chains on every corner.

Priscilla’s Gourmet Coffee Tea & Gifts is a great spot to cozy up with a book, hang out with a friend for a good chat, or get to work on that killer screenplay (they’ve got Wi-Fi). And if you’re hungry while you’re there try the pastries, sandwiches, gelato or cupcakes! For the shopper in all of us, you can buy gift baskets, cards, and other fun little treats here too!

Porto’s Bakery may not be just a coffee house (they’ve got amazing sandwiches, desserts, and so much more!) but they really do have fantastic coffee. Get a café con leche or a latte and start looking for a seat—they’re tough to come by! You may come just for coffee, but you won’t be able to leave without trying something delicious from the bakery.

Simply Coffee & Boutique serves fantastic coffee and amazing quiche! As for the boutique part, you can buy all kinds of little goodies like local art, jewelry and more. And if the coffee wasn’t enough, here’s something that will really make you linger: free Wi-Fi!

Ever since Romancing the Bean closed, the coffee scene just hasn’t been the same for me. It was the perfect balance of great coffee, good music, enough space (and outlets!) to work, and super friendly clientele and staff. If you’ve got another coffeehouse suggestion for readers, please leave it in the comments!
