HOT, Hip and Happenin’ :: 11 Coffee Spots in Lafayette That’ll Make You a COOL Mom

It’s no secret that coffee is often times the “liquid fuel” us mommas need to get up and get going. If you’re looking for the know on a good cup of joe, here are the top 10 coffee spots that are hot, hip, and happenin’ in Acadiana.

These local spots will help you percolate to “Cool Mom” status:

1. Rêve Coffee Roasters

The overwhelmingly popular coffee lab of choice of the LAFM moms!

Reve coffee roasters roast their own beans here in Acadiana. You can’t get a fresher cup of coffee than that, Momma! Want to bring the hot, hip, and happenin’ to your home? Reve offers a coffee subscription service, so you can wow your houseguests with high quality caffeine tasty bevs this holiday season. Reve has even partnered with Parish Brewing for a coffee flavored beer! Cool mom win because it’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right?

2. Huya Craft Coffee

There mott is “a place where coffee is not just made, it’s crafted” serves up a lot of delicious coffees and specialty drinks. While you’re there try one of their fresh baked and homemade pop tarts – I promise you will thank me later.

3. Jet Coffee

Now serving at two locations in both Lafayette and Broussard, all the moms are loving the fresh clean feel of their decor, their friendly servers, and the drive thrus! Personal favorites include the ever popular freeze, and when it’s cold out, try a Hero hot!

4. Cooper Street Coffee

Cool mom Emily of LAFMB endorses this Jeanerette gem. She recommends picking up “amazing biscuits to go along with great coffee!”

5. Jammin Java

Jammin Java will have you feeling like family by the time you leave. This friendly staff has a full service coffee bar and can curate specialty craft coffee beverages. The affogato here is a must try as they also serve various delectable ice cream flavors. Their combo of hot coffee and frozen deliciousness is irresistible. Don’t make me say “I told you so” on this one!

6. Carpe Diem Gelato – Espresso Bar

Atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere! Under new ownership, but still keeping the same vibes. Order an espresso and enjoy a poetry reading, live jazz, or Art Walk. Make sure to pair that espresso with gelato and a freshly baked in house treat. (I was going to say “or”… but let’s be real here.) Carpe Diem is always experimenting with unique flavors, so my best advice is to try something new and exciting!

7. Indulge

Two words. Coffee. Spritzer. If you have never had a coffee spritzer, Indulge is the place to try one. I recommend visiting Indulge for your coffee fix and extra cool mom bonus points on a Sunday during “Sunday Sweet Jams.” Also, their cheesecakes are to die for!

8. Johnston Street Java

Johnston Street Java is now serving Keto friendly coffee concoctions such as the Keto-Licious Frappé and the Keto Bullet Coffee for all those hot mommas on the Keto diet! Or, on the other end of the spectrum, be sure to stop by on “Sucre Tuesday” for special deals on Sucres and Milkshakes.

9. The Louisiana Bean ( A mobile Coffee Bar)

This mobile coffee bar run by a husband and wife duo pops up at random events and in front of businesses, so follow their Instagram and Facebook to find out where they will be next! You can also pre order their bottled lattes or book them for your own private event. The attention to detail in their beverages is evident – YOU.CAN’T.GO.WRONG.

10.  CC’s Coffee House

I don’t think there is a local mom that doesn’t love them a good cup of CC’s! Just get the dang Turtle Mochasippi. You know you want to, and they won’t judge.

11. Starbucks

When in doubt, your friendly neighborhood Barista is typically one drive thru away with a Caramel Macchiato, Pumpkin Spice Latte, or Peppermint Mocha. (Don’t forget to sign up for Starbucks Rewards, gals!)
