Fort Collins is known for craft beer, vintage houses, and scenic views, but it also has plenty of wonderful cafes to offer. Some are community outreach programs designed to foster connections, including Everyday Joe's Coffee House and Genesis Coffee, but there are also places like the Beantrees Drive-Thru Coffee Cafe, which is intended to make your coffee stop as quick and efficient as possible. Of course, there are plenty of cafes in between as well, including the friendly Momo Lolo Coffee Shop, the pourover specialist Harbinger Coffee, and the Alleycat Coffee House, where you're welcome to stop by for a coffee 24/7. CDC information for travelers. Hours/availability may have changed.
