Pensacola may be a beach lover’s dream come true, but the abundance of nighttime activities can sometimes make it difficult to truly enjoy this pristine setting during the day. Thankfully, multiple locations serve coffee capable of getting you out of bed in the morning.

If you’re exhausted and in need of a quick caffeine fix, take advantage of Coffee Guy Cafe. This charming coffee shop offers a variety of tasty beverages, ranging from basic coffee and cold brew to specialty drinks that include everything from banana to maple syrup. The skillfully roasted beans ensure that even ‘plain’ coffee is enjoyable to drink. 

Don’t worry if you’re not into coffee. Several types of tea are also offered, as well as matcha lattes, spiced apple cider, and smoothies. The menu also includes pastries and a few other select food items.

Ambiance is a critical factor when choosing your go-to coffee shop, so you’ll be pleased to find pleasant vibes at Coffee Guy Cafe. Even the name sounds friendly. This cheerful feel extends to the decor, which features a unique blend of modern and vintage style. 

Committed to pleasing all the senses, the cafe’s staff members choose music carefully to lend the perfect sense of ambiance. The music is just loud enough to enjoy but quiet enough to allow you and your companions to converse without feeling like you need to shout.

If you’re in a rush, you’re welcome to take advantage of the drive-through. If you have time to spare, however, you’ll definitely want to stop in to experience the charming atmosphere at this shop. 

Given the attention to detail seen in Coffee Guy’s drinks and decor, it should come as no surprise that the cafe has earned noteworthy awards. In 2019, for example, the shop was highlighted by the Pensacola Magazine Reader Choice Awards. 

A few of our favorite beverages and foods include:

Mocha Cola
Drawing on the spirit of a root beer float but adding coffee to the mix, this drink contains chocolate milk and cola. It’s then poured over ice and topped with whipped cream.

The Superman
If you visit with a kid, be sure to order this fun beverage, which many adults find just as delightful. The frozen treat features plenty of cotton candy and looks almost too good to consume.

Benjamin Franklin
Consistently one of the most popular drinks at Coffee Guy Cafe, this super sweet beverage contains a blend of chocolate, caramel, butter pecan, and butterscotch. It’s available hot, iced, or frozen. 

Eye-Mazing Waffles
Made to order, these fluffy waffles are a sight to behold. The batter contains plenty of white chocolate chips. Additional chocolate is used to top the waffle, as are whipping cream and a strawberry puree drizzle.

Chicken Salad Croissant
Enjoy a Coffee Guy original recipe made from scratch and served on a wonderfully fresh croissant. You’ll also receive a bag of chips on the side.

Hummingbird Ritz Carlton Cake
Served by the slice, this southern specialty spice cake includes banana and pineapple, as well as a pecan-infused cream cheese frosting. 

Get your daily dose of caffeine and sugar at Coffee Guy Cafe, where the music and decor are nearly as delightful as the drinks themselves. Head for the drive-through to grab a quick drink or take your time inside this charming coffee shop.

Insider Tips:
– If you need special accommodations to make your drink sugar or dairy-free, don’t be afraid to ask. Several different types of milk are available, including soy, almond, coconut, and oatmeal varieties. You can also have espresso added to give any drink a stronger coffee flavor.
– A portion of the proceeds from every drink purchased at Coffee Guy Cafe supports the charity Orphan’s Promise, which is committed to helping abandoned children all around the world.
