Best Places To Grab A Cup Of Coffee In Fullerton

The coffee options in Fullerton are no joke. As a college town, there are plenty of places for you to stop by and check out– study session not needed! We’ve listed 7 of the best places to grab a cup of coffee in Fullerton for in-town students, out-of-town visitors and those of us who just need caffeine ASAP.

The Night Owl

Nestled in the heart of downtown’s streets, this place is the perfect spot for your morning cup of coffee in Fullerton. From the classic Americano to the trendy hemp milk latte, there’s something here for everyone! Pair up your daily pick-me-up with one of their baked goods and you’re ready for your day. They’re open 8 a.m. to midnight every single day so there is plenty of time for you to stop by this owl-themed joint!

MADE Coffee

Another Downtown Fullerton classic, MADE Coffee will not disappoint. They have a great drink menu (and plenty of different milks!) for anyone needing a cup of coffee. There’s also plenty of seating and free WiFi for the college students whose dorm room desk is getting dreary. They open at 7 a.m. during the week so make sure you swing by before the morning rush for your caffeinated fix!

Philz Coffee

CSUF students: got a gap and need some caffeine? Check out Philz Coffee. Located right on State College Blvd., this place is a mere 10-minute walk from campus. This franchise originated in NorCal so you know they do coffee right. If you’re hungry, they have a full menu you for you to check out. Enjoy your gap with a Philz classic Mint Mojito and an avocado toast!

Intentional Coffee

One of Fullerton’s most Instagram’ed drinks, the latte art at this place will impress every coffee connoisseur. From the classic leaf to an elegant swan, the designs their baristas can make should be enough to pique your interest. If not, a lavender latte should do the trick. They’re open from 6:45 a.m. to 11 p.m. during the week so there is plenty of time for you to snap your Instagram pic.

Pilgrim’s Coffee House

Good coffee, better prices. In your search for a cup of coffee in Fullerton, this place is a hidden gem that will not disappoint. For less than $3, you can have your morning cup of Joe! This places a smaller menu, but they have mastered every drink. Try a good ol’ House Blend or Cafe Au Lait.

Cafe Veronese Gardens & Gallery

If you’re in search of something a little more eclectic for coffee in Fullerton, Cafe Veronese Gardens & Gallery might be your next go-to.
