Coffee Shops on 30A

30A Coffee Shops

Waking up and getting the day started shouldn’t be a problem when you find yourself at the most beautiful beaches in the world, however if you do still need a little extra pep in your step, stop by one of these Coffee Shops on 30A and get your fix.

Black Bear Bread Co.

South Walton’s trendiest coffee shop happens to be located in Grayton Beach. It fits right into the quaint colored cottages in the art district and serves as the perfect backdrop to make all of your Instagram dreams come true. The only thing more pleasing than the aesthetics is the coffee of course! Black Bear Bread Co. uses Stumptown Roasters, a coffee bean roaster based out of Portland, Oregon. In addition to yummy cappuccinos, lattes, and fresh brewed coffee, the breakfast and lunch menus are inspired and satisfying as well. Black Bear is a great gathering spot for locals and tourists to enjoy and is a wonderful addition to the 30A community. Don’t forget to grab a cinnamon roll on your way out!


Amavida is a sustainable organic coffee brand roasted right here in Florida. Amavida Coffee stores can be found in Rosemary and Seaside as well as in neighboring Miramar Beach and Panama City. The name comes from the joining of the Spanish words “amar” and “vida” which respectively translate to “love” and “life.” This name encompasses Amavida’s general outlook and values, which is reflected in the caliber of coffee and service you’re sure to receive on a visit to one of their shops. If espresso isn’t quite up your alley, they also offer a selection of smoothies, hot chocolates, and loose leaf teas. Check them out, they’re the definition of local.

Bad Ass Coffee

Bad Ass Coffee will have coffee lovers singing Aloha from Grayton Beach. The name might not mean what you think. Turns out the donkeys of Kona, Hawaii used to carry loads of coffee beans up and down the mountains of the Big Island. The native people named these donkeys “the Bad Ass Ones” out of respect for their strong and stubborn nature. The one thing Bad Ass Coffee does that some others don’t is whip up interesting, flavored, specialty drinks. Flavors and syrups galore mean limitless customization options are at your fingertips! Locals tip - ask for the espresso ice cubes if you order an iced drink. Frozen coffee cubes instead of frozen water that’s going to dilute your drink? Genius.

Sunrise Coffee Co.

Even those staying on the West end of 30A need their coffee fix! Sunrise Coffee Co. is located in the shops of Gulf Place Town Center in Santa Rosa Beach. This fun and funky shop serves drinks, treats, and food. Sunrise Coffee Co. uses beans from Amavida, meaning you can get that same bold taste on any side of the beach. They also serve “Grown Up Drinks” like beer, wine, frozen margaritas, and daiquiris making it a favorite place to stop any time of the day. Grab a beverage of your choice and hit the beach just across the street.

Between white sandy shores, crystal clear water, miles of hiking and biking trails, communities filled with specialty shops, and a multitude of other activities to be enjoyed, vacation days on 30A tend to be jam-packed with fun making memories. We have rental homes and condos up and down Highway 30A to put you in the perfect location no matter what your vacation itinerary may include… lucky for you they also put you close to your next cup of Joe!
