10 great places to get coffee in Trumbull County
6635 OH-87, Kinsman
We started in Kinsman at the spacious Good Intentions Market & Café. The café has an airy industrial atmosphere with upscale country flair. As the name suggests, this isn’t just a coffee shop – it’s a market, too, with farm-fresh food items and artisan gifts. We enjoyed perusing the lotions, woodworking, local maple syrup, peppers and sauces, and jewelry. And of course, I had to smell the soaps.
Good Intentions’ coffee and tea menu is pretty straightforward and doesn’t include the more niche drinks, but the friendly staff at Good Intentions made me an amazing toasted brown sugar mocha. It was one of the best mochas I’ve had, and a great way to start off the day.
The café also offers a tempting breakfast and lunch menu with everything from omelets and French toast to burgers and burritos. Sam and I were very tempted by the grilled ham and cheese, but held off because we knew we had plenty more coffee shops to hit.
204 West Main Street, Cortland
Next, we headed south on Route 5 to downtown Cortland. Cortland Main Street Coffee is a walk-in shop that reminds me of one you’d find in a larger city like New York or Chicago, except it has the benefit of Cortland’s small-town charm. It’s a great place to easily pop in and out and has a full coffee and tea menu that would satisfy the most adventurous beverage drinker.
However, I brought along someone who doesn’t actually drink coffee or tea, so the very friendly barista made Sam a rich, creamy hot chocolate with whip cream while I admired the absolutely giant muffins in the pastry case.
31 North Main Street, Niles
A straight shot south on State Route 46 brought us to Niles for our third coffee shop of Day One.
Cadence Coffeehouse is more than just a coffee shop. Established by Cadence Care Network, the coffee shop provides vulnerable youth with job training and life skills – and provides the locals with coffee, pastries, and sandwiches.
The coffee shop has a light, uplifting atmosphere and an extensive drink menu that even includes Italian soda. Menu offerings include wraps, croissants, and veggie trays, but the café is most well known for its crepes.
I got a chai latte that was subtle and sweet and Sam and I split a cinnamon toast crunch crepe that tasted just like the cereal.
If we had not been on a mission to hit our five-shop quota before lunch with my mother, we would have stopped in at the National McKinley Birthplace Memorial across the street from Cadence Coffeehouse. But, as we were only halfway through our list, we had to admire the stately memorial, library, and museum from the sidewalk.
824 North State Street, Girard
Up next: The Daily Grind. This coffee shop in Girard has cozy casual vibes and a full coffee and tea menu. They also offer breakfast skillets, toast, wraps, and sandwiches.
Sam yet again opted for a hot chocolate while I – you guessed it – marveled at some amazing-looking pastries.
With ample seating and a comfortable environment, The Daily Grind would be a great place to meet friends or hang out and get a little work done on a laptop. If you’re in a hurry, however, never fear – it has a drive thru window, too, which makes it unique among the coffee shops on this list.
218 North Main Street, Hubbard
We hopped on Interstate 80 to get to our last coffee shop of the day. KT’s Coffee Talk in downtown Hubbard is one of Trumbull County’s newer coffee shops. It’s a small walk-in shop with just a few seats, but its cute, welcoming atmosphere makes you want to stick around.
KT’s has a full coffee and tea menu as well as iced teas and fizzy fruit drinks. I grabbed another sweet chai latte, but definitely want to head back to try a fizzy. Plus, Sam and I enjoyed driving through downtown Hubbard and seeing all the shops and restaurants. KT’s would be a great spot to stop before taking a stroll downtown.
888 Youngstown-Kingsville Road, Vienna Center
Going it alone on Day Two, I headed over to Vienna to check out a very new coffee shop with a great name: Twisted Peacock. I couldn’t miss the bright blue building.
The coffee shop charmed with a colorful, fun aesthetic and plenty of peacocks on the walls, rugs, and counter. There was also a glimmer of a 1950s diner in the seating area.
Friendly baristas made me a lovely white hot chocolate mocha that nicely balanced sweetness and coffee flavor. While they worked, I checked out the little shop filled with jewelry, scarves, and clothes. And, I seriously considered buying a gourmet marshmallow for the road, but knew I had plenty more sweets and treats ahead of me.
8480 East Market Street, Howland
Next, I headed due west on Warren-Sharon Road to Market House Caffe, where I inadvertently crashed a friend’s coffee date (sorry, Nick).
This popular coffee spot is actually in a house. It’s cozy and has rustic vibes and lots of natural light. There are also lots of places to sit and talk for hours – or you can pop upstairs and shop for decorations, home goods and gifts Market House’s extensive collection.
I grabbed a sweet, subtle chai latte. Market House also has pastries including biscotti and macarons, and a food menu with light eats like strata and overnight oats. They also offer a toast bar and a “jar bar” of yogurt.
8024 East Market Street, Howland
Alright, here is where I admit that I didn’t actually make it to ten coffee shops because it was a holiday weekend and The Howland Bean was closed to give its staff some well-deserved rest. I did, however, stop in the parking lot for good measure.
The Howland Bean has been one of my favorite local coffee shops since I first discovered it. It’s a comfortable, cozy coffee shop with couches, tables, and an event space.
I know from past trips that the chai lattes are sweet and flavorful. But, if you’re looking to be a little more adventurous than me and try a few new things, The Howland Bean does seasonal iced coffee flights that are always as tasty as they are pretty. There are also sandwiches, pastries and snacks – and, perhaps most importantly, gelato.
112 North Park Avenue
Finally, I traveled down East Market Street to Warren for my last two coffee shops. Nova Coffee Co. on Courthouse Square is the perfect downtown coffee spot. Somewhat industrial and just a little hipster, Nova is another comfortable place to hang out.
Nova offers a wide variety of drinks with some seasonal options as well as a fun food menu with bagels, tacos, wraps and bowls, but the star of the show at Nova is the donuts. I got a blueberry glazed donut with snowflake sprinkles and enjoyed every single bite. Other favorite donut choices are the maple glazed and the signature Nova Special, which has an original glaze a sweet cream.
Nova also sells merchandise and bags of coffee, so you can take that downtown coffeehouse feeling wherever you go.
10. The Mocha House
467 High Street NE, Warren
Last but never least is the Mocha House. Often included on the list of Warren’s favorite restaurants, Mocha House has an extensive food menu but is most renowned for its huge selection of cakes and pastries. So, of course, I got a snowflake sugar cookie for the road.
Situated just a few blocks away from Nova, The Mocha House is another cozy, comfortable spot – but you better bet that it gets loud during the busy lunch rush.
Like the desert options, the drink menu has you covered with coffee, tea, espresso, mocha, chocolate, and frozen options – and they’re all delicious.
So, there you have it: ten coffee shops to try and love in Trumbull County.
But there are even more great places to have coffee or tea in Trumbull County, like Delightful Maple Café in Southington, Broken Leaf Café in Newton Falls, and Coffee Cup Café – also known as O’Callaghan’s – in Warren.
Since I didn’t get to all of them, you’ll have to try them yourself!
