Most Starbucks stores are closed for the afternoon but the 3 p.m. slump is real and you still need caffeine. Show some love to any (or all, live your life) of these local coffee shops.
1. Social Grounds Coffee
Veteran-owned Social Grounds in Springfield is one of my favorite shops. It's cozy, the lattes are always good and the staff is so sweet! If the owner Jason Kelloway is there you should definitely chat with him because he is one of the coolest human beings.
2. Bold Bean
Bold Bean is kind of an OG of local coffee shops. The Riverside shop has been a chill spot to spend hours sipping espresso and catching up with girlfriends.
The original location is in Riverside and now they've got shops in San Marco and Jax Beach.
3. Urban Bean Coffee House
Urban Bean in Orange Park is swankyyyy. You can sip an iced coffee while eating fancy meats and cheeses! And they have wine! Damn that's fancy.
4. Brew Five Points
Brew is a good spot to get a little bit of everything. You can order a pour over, a charcoal latte or a beer. Or ask for a Hipster Speedball. You'll be awake for days.
