Coffee lovers never have to travel far to enjoy a good cup of coffee in Irvine. Thanks to the diversity of the communities that make up this city, there are a wide variety of choices of coffee flavors, styles, and ambiance for people who own local real estate. Irvine, CA, has many excellent coffee shops, and here are 5 you should definitely check out.
1. Sunmerry Bakery
Here’s something you should know about most of the coffee consumed in North America: it is made from the Coffea arabica plant that is native to Yemen and parts of East Africa. Yemen was once part of the Persian Empire, which may explain why Persian cafés are known to offer excellent coffee. The Sunmerry Bakery occupies a small establishment in the Arbor Village Shopping Center. The coffee beverages offered here are not only delicious but also very creative.
2. Coffee Tomo
This Korean café takes coffee as seriously as a shop in the outskirts of Seoul. Coffee culture is relatively new and modern in Korea, and it is catching up to tea in some communities. Coffee Tomo is on Culver Drive. The beverages cost about the same as Starbucks but the baristas are incredibly talented. Everything is carefully made here, from the neat foam designs in the lattes to the delicious snacks.
3. BLK Coffee
Decades ago, U.S. soldiers introduced coffee to Vietnam. Since then, Vietnamese coffee culture has developed very strongly. If you like freshly made, military-strength coffee, BLK on Jamboree Road is for you. Don’t forget to order from the deli menu.
Though this fancy café on Jeffrey Road seems like an expensive place, this is just due to the exterior appearance and vibe. You can enjoy trendy coffee, smoothies, and all kinds of tea at BAMBU without having to pay much.
5. Cielo Coffee
This small café is located near the UCI campus. The focus is on delivering excellent coffee experiences and reasonably priced snacks. Cielo Coffee has not been around for too long, but it has already made a great impression among local coffee lovers.
