Zagat Names Top 10 ‘Coolest’ Independent Coffee Shops

At Crimson Cup, we’re all about independents. So we were pleased to learn that restaurant reviewer Zagat had published a list of the Ten Coolest Independent Coffee Shops Across the U.S.

Independent coffee shops are an indispensable part of their communities, offering a local flavor that franchises just can’t replicate. As Zagat noted, “(independents) focus on quality drinks, perfectly-roasted coffee, a variety of beans, hip baristas and an artistic quality lacking from the name-brand chains out there.”

Although Zagat picked just 10, there are thousands of cool independent coffee shops across the country. What’s your favorite independent coffee shop?
