With everything that happens day to day in this crazy world of ours, we think there’s one simple truth that each and every single one of us can agree on: Life is better when your morning starts with a cup of coffee. It gets you going, feeling energized and awake, and ready to tackle whatever challenges life is ready to throw at you! Well luckily for you, there are a number of amazing Truckee coffee shops, and here are just a few that our great town has to offer:
11357 Donner Pass Rd, Truckee
Zuri Coffee is a beautiful and welcoming place where you can get well-crafted coffee and enjoy delicious, fresh food. Created by Esther and Werner Ospelt who are both from Switzerland, Zuri is one of the top coffee shops in Truckee. The owners succeeded in recreating the Alps atmosphere and managed to bring to life a space where you can relax and enjoy sweet or savory crepes, paninis, salads, coffee, espresso, iced teas and pastries. The lovely atmosphere at Zuri Coffee is owed to the gorgeous design, inviting color palette and lovely staff. Check out this place on your next vacation in the area.
Wild Cherries Coffee House
11429 Donner Pass Rd, Truckee

With a focus on hospitality first, Coffeebar has truly become a favorite of both locals and tourists alike over their 8-year history in Truckee! When Coffeebar first opened their doors in 2010 they were inspired by the classic Italian coffee bar culture, which means that their primary focus is you, the customer! They do this by providing a location that is incredibly warm and inviting from the second you enter the front door and ensuring the quality of their beans by practicing only vertically sourced coffee. This combination will provide you with a cup of coffee and experience that is truly unlike any other in Truckee, and something that has to be experienced to be believed.
