Wake up with Lexington’s Best Coffee Stops


Early mornings and long, information-packed conference days call for COFFEE! We are very in tune with the caffeinated needs of our beloved Reset attendees, so we have scoped out lots of options for you to get your fix in Lexington. There is a small coffee shop/grab ‘n’ go cafe in the Campbell House, but if there is a long line, here are some other great stops to check out.

Old School Coffee — This place is CUTE! They offer fast, friendly service and serve ethically sourced coffee.

McLeod’s Coffeehouse — McLeod’s offer specialty coffee drinks as well as tea, and a limited lunch menu, BUT the best reason to check out McLeod’s is for their hearts for others. “[A] majority of our VIPs have never had the opportunity of having a job. Your support is what allows all of our mentally and/or physically disabled VIPs [to] have a place to call their own.” How awesome is that?!

La Petit Delicat — Did someone says MACARONS?! Check out their Insta and you won’t be able to think about anything else the rest of the day! They also offer other pastries as well as coffee, tea, and espresso. I hear they make a mean dirty chai!

Martine’s Pastries — The European-inspired bakery turned cafe serves breakfast and lunch, with an upstairs seating area with extra space for small groups.

North Lime Coffee & Donuts — Definitely peep their donut selections; the pink with sprinkles and maple bacon look especially scrumptious!

The Human Bean (with a drive thru!) — This option is probably nearest the Campbell House site. And did I mention Drive Thru?!

Coffea — Spacious with coffee specialty drinks, bakery items, and light fares like avocado toast

Common Grounds Coffee House — Locally owned for more than 30 years, Common Grounds offers fresh roasted coffee and open mic nights

A Cup of Commonwealth — Their tagline says it all: “Embrace community. Serve others. Create culture.” Serving drinks only (no food), this cafe practices sustainability, offering discounts for bringing in your own mug or thermos, bike racks, and recycling options.

Chains nearby: Dunkin’, Starbucks (few locations within a short driving distance), McDonald’s
