Find your Favorite Coffee

Minot winters may get cold, but there are so many places to warm up with a hot cup of coffee! Each of Minot’s locally owned coffee shops has its own personality and signature drinks. Whether you’re looking for a quick cup for the road, a spot to relax and study, or a place to connect during a business meeting, there’s a coffee shop in town for you. Check out this list to find your new favorite! (Of course, if you’re looking for something familiar, there are several Starbucks and Caribou locations across town.)


With Room Coffee encourages customers to leave room for growth and goodness — in both their coffee and themselves. Their unique menu changes by the season but includes flavors like lavender and butterbeer. Their other specialty, though, is plants, which are sold year-round and make the environment into an inviting jungle.

Broadway Bean and Bagel serves breakfast and lunch, including tons of amazing bagels and sandwich choices. (We’d suggest “The Original” bagelwich. Ask them to add chipotle mayo if you like it spicy!) All their coffee beans are roasted in-house.

The Black Iguana can be found inside Margie’s Art Glass downtown. Their drink selection ranges from coffee to tea to smoothies, including options for vegan and gluten-free customers.

Minot’s Daily Bread serves a full menu of hand-crafted espresso drinks and drip coffee, along with a wide array of baked goods, breads, and café eats. In addition to their coffee menu, they’re known for their amazing bread and fresh-squeezed orange juice.

Prairie Sky Breads serves Dakota Roasters coffee, plus a range of other hot and cold drinks. Their fall specialty is a pumpkin-spice latte made with real pumpkin puree instead of syrup. (Want to make a cup of Dakota Roasters in your own kitchen? Order online, and they’ll deliver fresh-roasted beans or grounds to your door!)

Foundry Coffee Company, tucked inside The Foundry, offers up house specialties like the Almond Joy latte. In a location that would make Chip and Jo feel right at home, this is a cute spot to grab a hot drink while enjoying some retail therapy.


The Daily Buzz has a large selection of drinks with over 30 customizable syrup flavors. They also have daily specials at affordable prices. This coffee cart is cleverly tucked away down by the Amtrak train depot, so you’ll need to be intentional when searching for this hidden treasure. (Their unique white coffee makes them a standout: the coffee has 30% more caffeine but is less acidic than regular coffee.)

The Kaffee Kiosk serves espresso drinks, cold drinks, and blended drinks like smoothies and frozen lemonades. There are a few locations throughout the city — can you find them all? Don’t miss their build-your-own oatmeal bar.

The Coffee Barn is actually a barn-shaped drive-through with signature drinks like “The Margaret” (peanut butter and white chocolate). Good ol’-fashioned friendly service is just what you could expect from this farm-inspired kiosk. Find it in the Badlands Restaurant parking lot.


If milk tea is more your style, you can pick your preference at several locations around town! The Fat Straw offers blended ice tea in a wide variety of flavors with tapioca bobas or juice bubbles. Grand Junction also offers blended ice drinks, while Try Thai serves just two traditional (and very delicious) flavors. The Black Iguana gives the option to have your tea blended or on ice, also with a long list of bubble flavors.
