Whether you’re looking for a brew for Monday mornings and one for Friday nights, it’s all on tap here. Coffee houses, breweries, and even a juicery have really honed their craft creating lattes and lagers that will keep you coming back. Use this guide to find the top refreshing places on your next visit to Evansville. 


Honey + Moon Coffee Co.

If you’re looking for that cozy coffee shop on a college campus vibe, this is it. Honey Moon is often filled with students sipping the Purple Ace Latte, but you can grab any coffee concoction here.

“We're really proud to have created unique spaces for the community to come together. Whether you stop in every morning for coffee or just spend an afternoon hanging out, we love to see people delighted by their experiences here.” - Zac Parsons, Owner

White Swan Coffee Lab

The perfect place when you find yourself on Franklin Street. The retro atmosphere will take you back to simpler times, but the coffee is anything but that. At White Swan, you’ll find bold flavors or untraditional ingredients living in harmony with the classics.

River City Coffee + Goods

River City Coffee + Goods is a staple on Main Street. It’s walking distance from many of our major meeting venues and the perfect spot for a Saturday morning pick-me-up before taking in all that downtown Evansville has to offer.

Penny Lane Coffeehouse

With a menu almost as eclectic as the coffeehouse itself, Penny Lane is an experience unlike any other. You can view work by local artists, hear live music, and enjoy the beauty of Evansville on the outdoor patio.

Proper Coffee

Big city vibe with small-town friendliness - that’s Proper Coffee. Step inside and you might not feel like you’re in the Midwest, but it’s an experience you won’t soon forget. This is one of the most unique hidden gems on Evansville’s east side.

Juice + Smoothies

Sunshine Juice Co.

If caffeine isn’t your thing, cold-pressed juice is the perfect pick-me-up. At Sunshine Juice Co., you’ll find organic juice and smoothie options for vegans, omnivores, new juicers, seasoned juicers, kids, and everyone in between.

La Campirana

La Campirana is adored by locals for its authentic Mexican cuisine, but the full juice bar may be its best-kept secret. Made-to-order smoothies, juices, fruit-infused water and other delights like fresas con cremas are all reasons to stop in.

Honey + Moon

Honey + Moon has everything you love in two locations. Along with coffee and tea, this is a great place to grab a tried-and-true smoothie flavor or build your own to your liking.

Craft beer

Myriad Brewing Co.

Myriad means endless opportunity - and boy is that true for this brewery. New to downtown, they’ve introduced over 10 original brews to the Evansville beer scene. The outdoor seating and dog-friendly taproom are the perfect perks.

“When you come to Myriad, you’ll love the feeling of community and camaraderie - and it’s the same with other breweries in Evansville. Yes, we’re a brewery, but we’re also a place where you can hang out, be casual, and have a good time.” - Jason & Jamie Elliott, Owners

Damsels Brewery & Pub

Great food, better beer, and pinball - what more could you ask for in a family-friendly brewery? Damsels has up to 13 original craft beers at any given time and they’re always brainstorming their next batch.

Evansville Brewhouse

You’ll find Evansville Brewhouse in Haynie’s Corner Arts District. If you’re not a local, you’ll definitely leave feeling like you are. Play board games daily, trivia weekly, and try beer yoga when you’re feeling adventurous.

Carson’s Brewery

A brewery that makes beer with donuts is ok in our book! Carson’s Brewery has eight core beers on tap and many others seasonally. Pack a picnic and enjoy live music in the tap room or ask about beer yoga - namaste for the brews!

Turoni’s Pizzery & Brewery

The craft beer scene burgeoning, but Turoni’s has been doing it for over 20 years. Stop by one of their three locations to try seasonal and rotating taps.

Craft cocktails

Mo’s House

At Mo’s House, your favorite classic cocktails take a new twist. Don’t let the sophisticated vibe fool you, every weekend is a party in this corner bar.

Pangea Kitchen

As a global eatery, Pangea’s craft cocktails truly are a worldly sensation. With ingredients like Thai chillis, basil, and ginger, you’ll want to taste test them all.

Walton's Smokehouse and Southern Kitchen + Fidel’s Bourbon & Cigar Bar

Mules, moonshine, and margs - oh my! Walton’s makes memorable hand-crafted cocktails and seasonal sangrias. After dinner, head upstairs to Fidel’s for premium bourbon and classic prohibition-era craft cocktails.
