America's Best Coffee Cities

Whether you’re looking for single-origin beans, personalized pour-overs, or carbonated iced coffee, T+L readers have toasted the most caffeinated cities in America.

No. 6 New Orleans

6 of 21

For plenty of visitors, the authentic New Orleans experience includes a chicory-fueled café au lait with a beignet, like the ones at Café du Monde. The legendary restaurant can also claim to have created one of the original New Orleans–style iced coffees, which likewise include chicory, derived from endive root. At PJ’s Coffee, the cold-drip process removes two-thirds of the acid, while CC’s Coffee House offers the blended Mochasippi in such flavors as the Turtle (chocolate, caramel, and hazelnut) and the Salted Caramel. Don’t ruin your lunch, though: thanks to its classic po’ boys, the city also won the survey’s great sandwiches category.
