It is such a beautiful town filled with interesting historic homes, a lovely downtown area and itâ€™s just a short drive from Washington D.C.. Leesburg, VA is also the home to many amazing local coffee shops.
I used to drive to Leesburg often to visit my favorite Starbucks, back in the day. Little did I realize how much I was missing out on when I chose convenience over local coffee. Choosing local coffee is like going on an adventure!
Each shop has its own feel and unique roaster! Visiting new shops is the highlight of any trip I take because I know two things for sure – I will find fresh coffee and encounter a brilliant coffee community. I meet Baristas who love what they do and take pride in serving their community. There is nothing else like it! I hope that by reading each week, you too, will develop a thirst for this adventure. Passing up convenience and explore what your local coffee shop has to offer!
Portside CoffeeÂ is located close to the historic downtown area in a newer shopping plaza. The cafe is spacious and bright. There is plenty of workspace, a cozy sofa and friendly baristas.
This cafe has a nautical ship theme as the name suggests, with an art deco feel. You will find fancy lighting like something you would see on a cruise ship and large travel posters cover one wall.
I ordered a skinny cappuccino, pour over and a cold brew. The roasters offered were Cervantes and Cafe Amouri. My coffee was good, and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. They have a large coffee menu, baked goods, bubble tea, lunch items and much more!
I had the privilege to meet with the owner, Linda, such a sweet lady.
As I bring another blog to a close, I hope that you enjoy reading them weekly. I love sharing my adventures with you as The Cappuccino Traveler and it means a lot to me that you took the time to read this today!
