Angel’s Island Coffee Huntsville AL
The bright blue and yellow exterior makes Angel’s Island Coffee one of the most recognizable Huntsville coffee shops. They boast the best espresso in Huntsville but their coffee-based ice-cream drinks are equally as legendary.
They also have a range of pastries and sandwiches made fresh daily for when you feel a bit peckish!
My favourite part of this coffee shop in Huntsville though is the drive-through window – super convenient if you are heading out of town on the parkway to visit nearby places like Scottsboro Alabama or Lake Guntersville State Park.

Dark Side Coffee Huntsville
One of the new Huntsville coffee spots, Dark Side Coffee Huntsville already has two locations. One Dark Side Huntsville coffee shop is on the North Side whereas the other is in uptown Huntsville. The freshly ground coffee is sourced from Cameroon, famous for its robust flavors.
They offer exciting signature drinks, like Snickerdoodle Lattes and a Dark Side Mocha, but their main attraction is an all-day cereal bar buffet. Having tried the Snickerdoodle latte, the dark roast off the coffee set off the sweetness well.

This shop has been serving its loyal local customers since the 70s and they continue to entice passersby with the intoxicating aroma of coffee roasting that lingers around the shop.

Huntsville Coffee Trail
Huntsville runs a coffee trail if you want to try all the different options available in Downtown Huntsville before you settle on your perfect cup. There’s a card that you can get stamped as you try each of the different shops. Once you have all your cards stamped, you get a cool Huntsville coffee trail cup.
They’ve got several craft coffee shops on the Huntsville Coffee Trail that aren’t on this list because we wanted to venture beyond Downtown Huntsville. Besides I prefer to have Pizelle’s Confections and The Moon Bakeshop in the amazing bakeries in Huntsville category.
