Coffee Shops at the Beach

Having worked in Ponte Vedra Beach since 2004, I can say I’m pretty familiar with the coffee shops at the beach. It wasn’t until 2022 that there was an actual “coffee shop” in Ponte Vedra Beach that was cute and kind of trendy. Think Friends, “Central Perk,” sans Gunther, the goofy barista in love with Rachel. Those are the places I love and where now, I enjoy working remotely when the opportunity presents itself. Here’s my 5 favorite coffee shops at the beach where you can do your best remote work, enjoy the atmosphere and grab an amazing coffee or light breakfast!

Foxtail Coffee Co. in Ponte Vedra Beach

Foxtail Coffee

Foxtail Coffee  | 260 Front Street, Ponte Vedra Beach | (904) 834-7290

Coffee enthusiasts in Ponte Vedra Beach celebrated in 2022 with the addition of Foxtail Coffee Co. Foxtail is a delightful neighborhood cafe situated in the Sawgrass Village shopping center and is a much-needed and eagerly anticipated addition to the area.

Foxtail offers a variety of options, including light breakfast and lunch foods, coffee, tea, and a delightful ice cream counter serving Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream. Trust me, choosing from their ice cream selections can be a tough decision, especially at 9:30 in the morning!

The cafe features a cozy atmosphere with a few tables, bar seating, and a coveted nook by the window, perfect for enjoying your coffee. If the weather permits, take advantage of the ample outdoor seating and relish the beautiful fall days we’ve been blessed with.

Planning a work function or in need of a large coffee order? Foxtail has you covered with their one-gallon cold brew Growlers and the option to place sizable hot coffee orders.

Roundbird in Jacksonville Beach

Round Bird Coffee Shop

Round Bird Coffee Shop | 1094 3rd Street N, Jax Beach | 904-746-7993

Round Bird is a lovely South African inspired coffee shop that opened in Jacksonville Beach in 2020.  The shop is so cozy and welcoming and the staff incredibly friendly. Round Bird is NOT just a coffee shop.  They offer a full menu of coffees, teas, energy spritzers, kombucha, pastries, meat pies … and wine!

Round Bird is a small business that supports other small businesses by sourcing menu items from other Jacksonville small businesses including The Sweet Room (a local online bakery), Social Grounds Coffee and YumCha Tea.  The meat pies (my personal favorite) come from 4 & 20 Pastry Company in Sarasota.

Need a coffee pop-up?  They do that too!  The decor, environment, flavors, smells, atmosphere and location make Round Bird a perfect place to meet friends, take WFH outside and enjoy the beach scene.  Another great thing about Round Bird is they are open until 7PM for you late coffee lovers too!

Sago Coffee in Jacksonville Beach

Sago Coffee

Sago Coffee | 318 7th Ave N, Jacksonville Beach | (904) 372-9577

Sago Coffee opened in early 2019 with a mission to bring the community of Jacksonville Beach together in an uplifting environment with great coffee and great conversation!  The menu is a plethora of coffees, pour overs, lattes and teas.  Looking for a delicious breakfast bowl?  Sago offers acai bowls for the health conscious, sandwiches, sweets and an abundance of savory items too!  There’s something for everyone in a coffee shop that offers conference room reservations, free WIFI and shared work stations.  Rumor has it, their chicken salad is fantastic!  Oh and another great thing about Sago?  Each quarter they partner with a local cause and give 25% of profits towards a local non-profit partner.  Even more reason to make Sago your next WFH destination.  Open 7AM – 5PM, 7 days a week!

Southern Grounds in Neptune Beach

Southern Grounds

Southern Grounds | 200 1st Street, Neptune Beach | (904) 853-5473

Southern Grounds is located in the heart of Neptune Beach just a short walk to the white sandy beach!  Another great thing about Southern Grounds is their menu jammed packed with fantastic breakfast/brunch items, sandwiches, burgers, tacos, tartines, charcuterie and cheese, soups and salads.  Don’t forget your coffee too!  Outdoor patio seating is available as well as socially distanced acceptable inside seating. 

The vibe, the atmosphere and the coffee make this a great coffee stop any day of the week.  The later hours are also a bonus.  6:30AM – 9PM – 7 days a week.  Late night coffee drinkers and work-a-holics will love this!
