The Best Coffee Shops in Carmel IN

Listen, I love Carmel. It’s no secret. I’m not even shy about how we lived there for 8 years, which is why I’m a huge advocate for Carmel’s best coffee shops. That doesn’t mean I don’t love exploring downtown, Broad Ripple, Fountain Square, or Fishers — it just means Carmel will always be special to me.

MOTW in Carmel

One of the best new coffee shops in Carmel that has popped up recently is the new MOTW Carmel location! The new MOTW is their biggest and brightest café space yet that comes with everything we love about MOTW.

MOTW has been expanding so much lately, and this addition in Indy’s northern suburb is very much needed in the area. Coffee drinkers can expect all the great things we’ve come to love about MOTW—their amazing lattes and delicious pastries and treats, all served by some of the best people you’ll ever meet.

Carmel’s own Indie Coffee Roasters

Back in my day, there was only one Indie Coffee Roasters in Carmel. Thankfully for them and for us, they have come a long way!

Indie Coffee Roasters on Main Street is a staple in the local coffee community, especially in Carmel. They care so much about the coffee they roast and how they interact with every guest in their café. Indie will forever be one of my favorite local coffee shops on the planet.

Indie Coffee Roasters originally started roasting in their Main Street café, and they recently outgrew their roasting operation and moved it off-site (still in Carmel). Now, they have a second café in Carmel that is absolutely gorgeous and serves up that great Indie Coffee Roasters coffee we’ve been sipping all these years.

Local Coffee Shops in Carmel

Local coffee in Carmel has come a long way since the inception of the Indianapolis Coffee Guide. I actually started the Coffee Guide while my husband was working at the now-closed Soho Café in Carmel. While there’s still room for more local coffee, we should all be so grateful for the amazing local coffee shops in Carmel we have today.

As always, look no further than the Indianapolis Coffee Guide to find the best local coffee shops in Indy. Wherever you go, there’s a neighborhood coffee shop that’s calling your name, and we’re the best (and only) place to explore and discover the amazing local coffee scene.
