Caffeine fiends unite. We take a look at the top five coffee shops in Las Vegas with nary a Starbucks or Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf to be found.
1 Sambalatte Torrefazione
Westsiders flock to this Boca Park hangout for the best Nutella lattes, fruit tarts, and hot chocolate around. With its international tea and java collection, Sambalatte offers unique twists on classic coffeehouse selections. It has also turned foam into a literal art form, transforming the frothy goodness into intricate designs such as hearts and leaves.
2 The Beat Coffeehouse and Records
Equal parts shop, bar, and artist hangout, The Beat is one of Fremont East’s premier hubs and a regular go-to joint for hip Downtowners such as Tony Hsieh. Relax with a signature specialty beverage while a local band performs onstage. Open until midnight six days a week and until 5 pm on Sundays—try the baked French toast with housemade coffee ice cream for brunch.
