Though they’ve only been open a few months, Just Love Coffee Cafe is quickly becoming a go-to stop for Destin locals. An impressive menu of light breakfast and lunch options, sweet espresso drinks and fresh pour-over or drip coffee make Just Love a must-stop in the area. Although Just Love Coffee Cafe is a member of a franchised chain, it’s managed to hang on to plenty of local charm; you’ll feel like you just walked into the ultimate coffee shop next door. 

The interior of Just Love Coffee Cafe includes spacious seating; you’ll find open seating large enough for family groups as well as plenty of more intimate nooks to sit down with a book or a laptop for an unhurried cup of coffee. The menu itself offers a huge variety of options, from light avocado toast to breakfast burritos and sliders, waffles, and omelets. The lunch and dinner menu also includes staples like grilled cheese sandwiches, wraps, a variety of sandwiches, and salads, to name a few. 

Expect picture-perfect waffles imprinted with the trademark Just Love coffee stamp. Waffles are crisp and flavorful, and you can choose from a variety of fresh fruits, coconut, maple, or chocolate syrup, powdered sugar, chocolate chips, and whipped cream on top–all the staples that make waffles decadent. Just Love’s Bacon Tater Waffle takes it up a notch; a “waffle” made of hash browns, topped with bacon bits and served with a side of sour cream and ketchup, it’s hard to improve on this particular waffle incarnation. 

Expect a wide spectrum of coffee drinks, including all the espresso standards, but you’ll find fewer pure coffee options than you would at a more dedicated coffee shop; drip, cold brew, and pour-over are pretty much your only options in addition to espresso standards. You will find tasty, unexpected cold brew options, including a coffee shake and a nitro float, in addition to the expected frappe and basic cold brew options. 

When you just need a light lunch, breakfast, or pick-me-up, a wrap is the way to go, and Just Love has some options. The Power Up Wrap includes egg, cheese, and avocado on a coconut or turmeric wrap; the quinoa veggie wrap is a refreshing vegan option, packed with goodies like black bean salad, bell peppers, hummus, cucumber, and spinach. Wraps are served with chips or freshly-cut fruit to round out your snack or meal. 

Just Love Coffee is located just off the Emerald Coast Parkway, right beside the airport in Destin. It’s a convenient stop whether you’re heading out to explore the city for the day, looking for a place to stop in the midst of shopping, or catching up with a friend over an unhurried cup of joe.
