5 Iced Coffee Spots in Rhode Island to Keep You Cool and Caffeinated
You don't have to sacrifice your morning cup o' Joe to beat the heat—these local java joints have you covered.
61 Washington St., Providence, boltcoffeecompany.com
Try: The much-anticipated kegged nitro cold brew. Its creamy texture and balanced chocolate and raspberry notes hit the mark for both die-hard cold brew drinkers and those just looking to switch things up (it’s also a staff favorite!).
FYI: Everyone who purchases a bag of their new InDownCity blend is entered to win a gift card to a neighboring PVD business.
Main Street Coffee and Toscana Lounge
137 Main St., East greenwich, 401-885-8787, mainstreet-coffee.com
Try: After picking up your regular flavored iced coffee order in the morning, come back in the evening for your pick of nearly twenty signature espresso martinis (made with vodka or whiskey).
Audrey’s Coffee House and Lounge
Try: This “Bachelor”-fandom spot offers both traditional and trendy flavors (almond raspberry? Blueberry? Butter pecan? Count me in.) along with small bites.
FYI: You may be served by Jared Haibon from “The Bachelor” and his wife Ashley Iaconetti as they are actively helping out in their new business. Stick around the evening for cocktails.
Junk and Java
49 Beach St., Westerly, 401-315-0111, junknjava.net
Try: Known for their eclectic and creative concoctions, you have to go for a specialty latte (see: cookies and cream, Snickers or cinnamon roll).
