Whether it’s to get an extra jolt of caffeine or just because the drinks are pretty to look at, Southington has some of the best spots to grab a specialty drink. Here are just a few:
Perkatory Coffee Roasters
Perkatory Coffee Roasters is a repeat stop amongst the foodie community. This coffee shop offers a wide variety of coffees, lattes and espresso drinks. In addition, it offers some interesting twists on classics, like Cocoa Fuego, a spicy hot chocolate drink. Featured here is the salted caramel iced latte. This drink was very creamy. Whole milk took up most of the drink. The milk, espresso, and salted caramel blended so well together that no one taste overpowered the others.
If you are in search of an amazing iced chai latte, then look no further than Paul Gregory’s. The Pine Valley Chai Latte offers the perfect amount of spice to milk ratio. Topped with frothy milk, whipped cream and nutmeg, this drink is perfect for any season. It’s not too sweet and will leave you wanting more. Paul Gregory’s also offers coffee beverages and breakfast and lunch foods as well.
Southington Coffee House
Twinkling lights fill the windows of the Southington Coffee House. There’s a particular charm when you walk in that makes locals feel like they’re visiting from far away. Southington Coffee House offers a wide variety of coffee drinks. Featured here is the Raspberry White Chocolate Macchiato. If the color of the drink itself doesn’t hook you, the taste will. The raspberry is a subtle addition to the coffee flavor and mixed with the white chocolate and milk, you forget you’re drinking coffee all together.
The Fresh Monkee
If coffee or caffeine isn’t your thing, but you still enjoy fun cold beverages, then The Fresh Monkee is the place for you. The Fresh Monkee offers endless combinations of smoothies from sweet and fruity, to chocolatey and decadent. Featured here is a Chocolate Coconut smoothie. With each sip, the fresh ingredients are evident. Add some natural peanut butter to this smoothie, for the perfect flavor blend.
