On a recent trip to Springfield, Missouri, I found out they are hosting the Ozarks Coffee Trail. This seemed right up my alley due to the fact that I might be slightly obsessed with coffee! The website described it as “keeping you caffeinated as you tour the Ozarks”. All you have to do is download the app and check into at least 10 of the coffee shops on the list. So, I signed up, downloaded the app, and started visiting the coffee shops on the list! Most of them I have been to already so this past weekend, while I was in town, I hit up a few of my favorites.
I stayed at an Airbnb this past weekend that, of all things, did not have a coffee pot in the room or in the house. This gave me the perfect excuse to stop at multiple places while I was in town.
Echelon Coffee is located on Glenstone right off of I-44, so it’s usually one of the first stops that I make as I come into town. They have great iced coffees! Their cookies are a favorite too…. try the snickerdoodle if they have any left! If you are looking for more than just a snack, we have had their breakfast burritos before too and they are delicious.
Big Momma’s Coffee and Espresso Bar is another regular stop for me! It was raining like crazy on Saturday morning and all I could think about was a cappuccino and a scone for breakfast. They are located on Historic Commercial Street and have a fun, laid-back vibe with plenty of seating. It was just what I needed on a rainy day!
Before I headed home on Sunday, I went to Eurasia Coffee Co. for a coffee and avocado toast. I wanted to fuel up before I went exploring! After hiking and exploring, I stopped at Classic Rock Coffee Co. This coffee shop is my new favorite because it covers my two favorite things coffee and rock-n-roll!!!
