Amelia Island Coffee is the Totally Perfect Coffee House

Where is the perfect coffee house? What makes the perfect cup of coffee? These are questions coffee shops have been attempting to answer for generations – perfection is hard to achieve.

But Amelia Island Coffee comes pretty close. Right in the heart of historic Fernandina Beach on Amelia Island, a small team of fun-loving coffee enthusiasts gathered together to build their personal case for the “best coffee in the country.”

Chic, antique, and filled with brick, Amelia Island Coffee is pure Old Florida, all the time. It stands as Amelia Island’s best coffee escape – a cozy and intimate spot in the center of town with strong coffee, an array of breakfast selections, and a delightful ambiance.

Lots of Coffee

The coffee menu consists of all the coffee shop staples. You can order an espresso, cappuccino, macchiato, latte, and more, with various flavors and additions, like cinnamon and honey.
Some favorites include the mocha latte, chai latte, and café caramel. Other beverage options include hot chocolate and organic Rishi tea. There’s also an array of iced drinks, such as the ultimate frozen mocha and the affogato, espresso poured over vanilla ice cream.

Ice cream is a big part of the menu, and it is incorporated into many menu items. Popular choices include the cold brew and the ice cream floats, both delightful blends of beverage and dessert.

Baked Goods and Breakfast

Amelia Island Coffee will not leave you disappointed if you happen to come by a little hungry. Between the baked goods and the breakfast selections, you have plenty to choose from. We really love the cinnamon rolls, cheesecake, fruit pies, coffee cakes, and scones. Sandwich highlights include the bacon-topped Chicken Salad and the California BLT, which adds a little something extra to a classic: avocado.

Both the Reuben and the Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches are familiar favorites, while the Veggie Wrap offers a hearty option for meat-free visitors.


Amelia Island Coffee is no stranger to fun local events. You can expect to come across a rotating door of things to do. The most popular is Friday night trivia where players can win gift cards, fun trinkets, and even beer. The event brings many locals every night, and it’s a really effective way to socialize right in Amelia Island.
