I think it's safe to assume 99.9% of college students run on caffeine and University of North Florida students are not the exception. Even if you could make a great cup of coffee in your UNF apartment, sometimes we just want to get out and explore. The selection near all college campuses can be a little overwhelming since everyone knows what college students need. But it's important we all can find a cozy spot to get our caffeine fix.
5 minutes away from University of North Florida's campus is a unique little coffeeshop serving delicious coffee and freshly baked goods. Known for "coffee, food, and community" this adorable little coffeeshop is a UNF staple. Not only can you grab some well-deserved caffeine and a tasty treat, the coffeeshop also has tables to study at, and even a cute study nook. If you want to get away from campus, without actually being too far, check out Sippers Coffeehouse.
Pura Bean Coffee Company
Pura Bean Coffee Company, located on Beach Blvd, serves up some delicious coffees, teas, and baked items.

If you're not a coffee drinker but still need a caffeine kick, be sure to try their iced chai tea latte. Be sure to look out for their mobile coffee truck too!
