Rhode Island has a strong coffee tradition, whether in the plethora of coffee shops and cafes across our small state, or in the delicious, official state drink of Rhode Island, coffee milk. These four coffee shops in Rhode Island are open to sate every coffee craving you might have during these trying times.
This coffee brand has two Rhode Island locations, in Providence and Charlestown. The shop offers a wide range of medium, dark and French roast beans, not to mention the famous Dave’s Coffee Syrup, perfect for homemade, Rhode Island-beloved coffee milk.
How to get it: Order on their mobile app (available on the App Store and Google Play) or call in and pick up your order at either location. Both locations are providing curbside, contact-free pickups between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. daily.
The details: 341 S. Main St., Providence, 401-521-1973; 5193 Old Post Rd., Charlestown, 401-315-2160, davescoffee.com
Borealis Coffee “believes that coffee is an experience worth sharing,” and the shop strives to make that shared experience a delicious one. Borealis recently reopened its doors to offer local pickup service Tuesday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. As the weather begins to heat up, the signature growler (64 oz of cold- or flash-brewed coffee) is the perfect thing to cool you off, among the many other offerings.
How to get it: Pre-order drinks, food, coffee, beans, groceries, merch and more online for contactless payment at borealiscoffee.square.site. Borealis is takeout only at this time; the patio remains closed and they are allowing only two customers in the store at a given time. The bike path door is open for walk-up ordering as well, so you can order a drink without even getting off of your bike! Masks are required to order and in store.
The Nook Coffee House
While this cozy coffee shop isn’t yet hosting dine-in service, it recently reopened its doors to offer takeout drinks. Pop by to pick up some locally roasted beans from New Harvest Coffee Roasters in Pawtucket or a bottle of Aqua ViTea Kombucha from Vermont.
How to get it: Download the Cloosiv app for mobile ordering and pick up your order at the East Greenwich location between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m.

The Coffee Depot
This coffee spot in Warren has worked to remain open to whatever extent possible since the beginning of the pandemic. Stop by for coffee, tea, a pastry, breakfast sandwich, or even a Pain D’Avignon loaf of bread.
How to get it: The shop is open for in-person orders. No more than ten people are allowed in the store at once, and markers are on the floor to mark the appropriate distance for customers and employees to adhere to state guidelines. Masks are required, both inside and at the outdoor table that’s available. The shop is open from 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
