Fika with Fiona: OTR 8.0

Great coffee and tea is a vital part of any OTR adventure. Happily, our swing through the Southeast provided us with the opportunity to visit a multitude of excellent specialty coffee and tea shops.

The cafes in this post are all specialty coffee and tea shops that we recommend without reservation. Our recommendations are based on three criteria:

  • taste and presentation of the product
  • knowledge and friendliness of the staff
  • cafe aesthetic

If you ever have the opportunity to visit any of the shops we have featured in this post we would love to hear your thoughts about your experience.
