Best Places in Stark County To Get Coffee

September 29, 2020 -- There will always be something charming about local coffee shops. While chain coffee shops may be easier to find and get much more exposure, they will never be able to recreate the unique atmosphere local shops provide. Stark County has no shortage of special coffee shops that will give you a very memorable experience that you will not find at chain places. These shops will definitely make you a return customer. Here’s my list of the top places in Stark County to get coffee.

Walkie Talkie Espresso & Coffee

You won’t find a coffee shop like this anywhere else. Their motto is serving coffee with a heart, and that couldn't be more true as the coffee shop is located  in a repurposed service station in a Canton neighborhood. Local fall favorite includes "Yammer-time": a double shot of espresso + house yam mix + steamed milk. Definitely check this local hotspot out for a one-of-a-kind experience!

The Still House at Gervasi VineyardStillhouseatgervasi

Open seven days a week during the morning and day hours, The Still House operates as a coffeehouse and features Gervasi’s signature GV Caffé line of proprietary blended, organic, fair trade, and locally roasted coffee beans. A large variety of espressos, lattes, flat whites, cappuccinos, and iced/cold brew coffees are available with an array of brewing styles including drip, pour-over, French press, and more. Delicious breakfasts are served including egg and cheese frittatas, croissants, and biscotti. All of these hand-crafted specialties can be savored in a relaxing atmosphere for reading, socializing or take them on-the-go. P.S. This turns into a COCKTAIL LOUNGE in the evenings Wednesday through Sunday.
