If you’re a coffee-lover like us, one of the first things you want to know when traveling to a new town is, “where’s a place to get a good coffee,” right? We’ve got several throughout Onslow County, and we thought we’d share seven of them, right here in this roundup. See a complete list of coffee shops in our area and share some coffee love of your favorites on Instagram (@onlyinonlsow) while you’re here!
If you’ve got in mind a special coffee – made just the way you like it, you’ll be happy to know that The Coffee Co., in Richlands is a “craft coffee shop” they will customize your java, just for you! For example, how about this white mocha & cinnamon cream latte? Looks delicious. Hot or cold! They offer all variations of lattes, cappuccinos, and americanos, as well as smoothies, teas, and baked goods.
Freshly roasted coffee, espresso, and artisan liege waffles complement a visit to The Milk Road coffee shop. Small in size but mighty in flavor, the waffles are covered in pearl sugar before hitting the iron, giving them sweetness and a little crunch. If you prefer tea, several spins on different varieties are available, like butterfly tea that changes colors when you add lemon. They’ve got a great outdoor seating area and are pet-friendly!
As a veteran-owned and founded company, they serve as a local hub for people of all backgrounds to exchange conversation and ideas over good food and coffee.
Honest to goodness, we could have coffee and stay for lunch and an afternoon snack! Napoli Cafe is an Italian coffee and sandwich shop serving Italy’s favorite coffee LAVAZZA: coffee, espresso, latte, iced drinks. They make delicious subs and sandwiches, fresh salads, and to top it off, they offer a large selection of ice cream, as well as milkshakes and smoothies – perfect after a hot summer day at North Topsail Beach!
Brewed Downtown is a special place where you can take a break and unwind. You can either enjoy a hearty breakfast to start your day or grab a quick lunch while on the go.

Nestled in the charming historic waterfront town of Swansboro, recently named one of the “Coolest Small Towns in America to Visit in 2021,” Bake Bottle & Brew is the place to relax and take in the iconic views of the water along our part of the North Carolina coast.
