Good coffee in Vegas is essential!
Las Vegas is a vibrate city that isn’t exactly known for hitting the hay at a reasonable hour. There’s never a dull moment with so much to see and do in Vegas, from world-class shows to outstanding restaurants. This is why having great quality coffee is simply essential to a city like ours! The Vegas’s coffee scene is relatively new compared to other giants like Rome, London, Singapore, and Seattle. However, there are now many specialty cafés and coffee shops that are changing the game right here in Sin City!
1. Mothership Coffee Roasters
Mothership Coffee is definitely one of our favorites! It is only a practical 5 minutes drive away from Sunrise Coffee, another project by the same owners. Mothership Coffee Roasters opened its doors in 2008. Mothership Coffee has a mission to be a positive force in the community. They also roast coffee beans for other coffee shops and restaurants around Vegas. Their beautiful North Green Valley Parkway and East Fremont spots are perfect for relaxing and enjoying your coffee with a freshly baked pastry.
