Cool Coffeehouses & Caffeine Stops in HBURG


A double-shot of espresso, Americano, or caramel macchiato with soy milk—No matter how you like your cup of Joe, HBURG always has something delicious brewing! 

Hattiesburg is home to a variety of coffee shops, each bubbling over with their own blend of unique cool factor and creations. Here’s just a quick overview of some of the best local spots in HBURG to sit and sip on your latte:

T-Bones Records and Café: When you want a mix of eclectic vibes, cool music finds, and a strong cup of coffee, you should check out T-Bones. What began as a niche record shop now offers a variety of hot and cold drinks, handcrafted sandwiches, and some of the most talked-about desserts in town. Sip your coffee inside the café during Sunday’s popular Jazz Brunch, or take your cappuccino to the covered patio on a beautiful Mississippi day. You’ll love the way music infuses every aspect of T-Bones too, from the size of your drink (EP, LP, 45), and the staff-chosen background music, to album releases and listening parties. Check out their special events or just head over to hang out!

Java Werks Coffee and Tea: Directly across from the gateway of The University of Southern Mississippi is Java Werks Coffee and Tea. Java Werks serves up pastries and plenty of ambiance at one of the most central locations in the city and frequently hosts special events like poetry readings and musical sets. If you’re hungry, grab a Java Werks’ favorite, the traditional Venezuelan arepa, or enjoy a fruit smoothie made in-house. As their name says, you can tantalize your palette with one of their tea creations too.

The Depot Kitchen and Market: In the mood to explore HBURG? Across the street from the city’s historic train depot, you’ll find local hotspot The Depot Coffee House. Housed in an old factory, the Depot has brick walls and two floors of seating to welcome coffee drinkers of all kinds- the student preparing for finals, the businesswoman on her lunch break, and a group of friends enjoying a lazy Sunday breakfast. After you’ve finished your café ole, stroll the streets of Downtown and uncover new treasures at local shops or galleries.

Java Moe’s Coffee Co.: Headed somewhere in a hurry or planning a relaxing afternoon in the park? Drive through Java Moe’s Coffee Co. at two locations—it’s the only locally-owned coffee shop in town with a drive-through option. The company opened in 2012, and since then has made a name for themselves, serving proven favorites alongside new flavors like Lavender Honeysuckle, Cadbury Cream, and Honey Almond. Don’t forget to check out their social media to get this week’s specialty drink discount!

Town Square Café and Bakery: A minute’s walk from Town Square Park, you’ll find Town Square Café and Bakery, a breezy bistro specializing in baked goods and just the right amount of espresso. Try a full breakfast of bacon and brioche beignets on the patio, or grab a croissant and ristretto to-go and have a picnic or stroll in the gorgeous nearby green spaces. Though recently opened, Town Square Café has quickly garnered rave reviews from locals and visitors alike!

Bonus! Take it to go! T-Bones Café sells their T-Bones cold brew to-go so you can enjoy the strong concoction at home. If you happen to be strolling through The Lucky Rabbit one weekend, pop into their market for a mason jar full of Grin Coffee to take along with you.

For both the supreme coffee consumer and java novice, HBURG has just the right brew, and we’re sure you’ll agree after your very first sip.
