Java Jolt: 4 Spots for Coffee

When it’s cold outside, and you need a little pick-me-up, nothing beats a cup of hot coffee.

Or, if you’re into frozen drinks, a frappuccino or cold brew might be more your style.

No matter what your favorite is, there are several coffee shops in the capital city for you to visit and find your favorite drink at each one. 

The Urban Sip 806 N. Farish Street
Located on Farish Street in downtown Jackson, The Urban Sip serves up delicious classic coffee, espresso and iced coffee.

Their specialty drinks include Amazing Grace, Mississippi Mud, Caramel Macchiato and several more. Relax in the cozy environment of the Urban Sip and enjoy your cold brew and homemade cinnamon rolls, all while giving back to the community. The Urban Sip is unique compared to any other coffee shop in that it’s a part of We Will Go Ministries. Each purchase plays a part in restoring someone’s life, feeding someone who might not have had the means to their food or clothing someone who needs a new pair of pants. Visit the Urban Sip Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Sneaky Beans 2914 N State Street
Located in the heart of Fondren, Sneaky Beans prides themselves in everything being locally sourced. The coffee, the milk, the pastries, even the art, furniture and live music is all local. Cold or hot, the Bean has your drink.

Not only is it just a place to grab a coffee and go, but on any given day, you’ll find local college students studying or groups of friends just hanging out on the patio. Sneaky Beans also has a generous selection of craft and domestic beers. If you’re into live music from local musicians, be sure to check their Facebook page for information on performances throughout the year. 

In June 2020, Sneaky Beans became The Bean & Brew under the new ownership of Kristy Buchanan and Nikkole Inman. Completely remodeled, community remains a major focus. The shop has added draft beer, wine and food.

Cups Fondren Multiple locations
Another Fondren favorite, Cups is located just next to Fondren Public and is home to everyone’s favorite specialty drink: the Blondie Latte. Caramel and white Ghirardelli chocolate combined with espresso and milk, the Blondie is served hot or frozen and has been a favorite of Cups lovers since day one.

Other menu items include the Capitol Street Latte, which is caramel combined with espresso and milk, the Brunette Latte, iced coffee, café au lait, several espresso options, and loose-leaf tea options. Cups also makes another great study spot for local college students. The quaint environment is perfect for studying for finals or just hanging out with a few friends after a long day. 

Deep South Pops 1800 N. State Street and 4500 I-55 N. at Highland Village
Known for their fun and delicious popsicles, Deep South Pops also serves up locally roasted coffee and their very own Deep South cold brew blend. Their coffee counter holds its own alongside their frozen treats. Add to that a couple of rooms’ worth of meeting space and locally made pastries and Deep South fits a niche for Belhaven and LeFleur East. 

Deep South Pops permanently closed on November 30, 2019.
