With warm Florida weather upon us, few things sound more appealing than sipping a frosty beverage during your beach day, errand running or break at work. Here, we’re sharing recommendations from the experts—that is, the owners of our favorite local coffee shops—on their choice iced drinks in Naples (and where to drink them).
Kunjani Craft Coffee & Gallery
780 Seagate Drive, Naples
There’s so much we love about Kunjani beyond the organic, locally roasted coffee, tea, cold-pressed juices, kombucha and all-natural food. Whether curling up in a comfy chair, hanging out on the leafy patio or browsing the art gallery and boutique, this is one of our go-to spots for a recharge.
STEPHANIE’S MUST HAVE: ICED MATCHA LATTE WITH COCONUT MILK
It’s energizing, refreshing and packed with antioxidants, thanks to the matcha’s fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins, and it also jump starts your metabolism and enhances your mood. Coconut milk gives it an extra kick, with healthy fats, calcium, vitamin D and vitamin B12 to boost your immune system, provide electrolytes and prevent fatigue. We like to pick one up before a stroll through Waterside Shops across the street.
Tony’s Off Third
1300 Third St. S., Naples
Tony’s Off Third has all our favorite things: authentic, baked-on-site pastries; lots of great wine; a beautiful courtyard to post up in, whether for people watching or to fit in a quick hour or two of work. We’ve also been known to pick up breakfast or lunch to go on our way to the beach…
CAROLINE’S MUST HAVE: ICED WHITE CHOCOLATE MOCHA WITH WHIPPED CREAM AND CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE
Sometimes, you just need to indulge. This coffee concoction is unapologetically decadent—and just what we need to refuel during a shopping excursion on Third Street South.
1427 Pine Ridge Road, Naples
1200 Central Ave. Naples
The Bowl’s mission is simple: Serve healthy, delicious food and drinks that people can feel good about. We’re addicted to their açaí and pitaya bowls for a morning or afternoon energy boost, and with two locations, it’s easy to get your fix no matter where you are in Naples.
KYLEE’S MUST HAVE: YERBA ACAI BEET KOMBUCHA
(PAIRED WITH AN ISLAMORADA BOWL)
The Bowl’s kombucha is organic and served on tap or in the bottle. It provides you with the probiotics needed to maintain a healthy gut. As for the Islamorada Bowl, it’s made with pitaya, which gives it a bright pink color—perfect for taking to the beach on a hot day!
