Downtown Orlando has so many great coffee shops and this one is no exception. Deeply Coffee was recently voted one of Food and Wine’s best coffee shops in America! This shop has very minimalistic decor and huge windows to allow a lot of natural light to peek in. It’s fairly quiet, therefore a great place to sit down and get some work done.
They don’t roast their own coffee but instead bring in specialty roasters from across the country including King State in Tampa. Aside from coffee, they have tea, waffles, and other assorted baked goods. If you’re looking to try new, unique flavors then this is the coffee shop for you.
