I’ve got you covered.

Here are five coffee shops in Oxford to help get you through.

1. Cups an Expresso Cafe

If you’re an up all nigher that’s into late night studying, Cups is for you. Open until midnight each night, Cups is there to provide you with your late night caffeine hit.  With great staff and even greater ambiance, Cups shows off the adorable charm that Oxford is known for.

Searching for a new drink at Cups? Try the Blondie Latte, caramel and white Ghirardelli chocolate combined with their expresso and textured milk, if you’re a coffee drinker. If coffee just isn’t your thing, be sure to try their Strawberry Spritzer for a life changing experience.

2. High Point Coffee

If early mornings are more up your alley, High Point Coffee is there to provide a kick to your early start. Since they open at 6:30am Monday through Friday, there is plenty of time to stop by High Point for a cup of coffee to help keep you from falling asleep during your 8am.

If it’s a unique coffee experience that you’re going for, take my word for it and try their Raspberry Mocha.  If you’re not feeling so adventurous, a Blackberry Frozen Lemonade is always a good choice on a warm spring day.

3. Shelter on Van Buren

Shelter is for you if you’re looking for somewhere to hide out from the chaos that is life at Ole Miss.  Serving coffee in the mornings, beer in the evenings, and live music on the weekends, prepare for Shelter to become your new favorite study spot.  Serving varieties of fresh juice, it is also for those of you looking for a healthier alternative. Their warm and cozy atmosphere is also the cherry on top of any one of the teas from their rather large selection.

4. Cabin 82

Cabin 82 is known around town as a cozy little cafe that is located in the Graduate Hotel on The Square.  They are also known for serving up some of the best traditional classics.  Cabin 82 is my personal favorite place to venture to when I take a much needed study break.  You can never go wrong with a cup of their coffee and a bacon, egg, and cheese biscuit.

5. Starbucks

Even though they constantly misspell our names, Starbucks is always a safe go-to. City to city Starbucks is always the same, and we all already have our orders memorized. So if you’re wanting to stick with what you know, then Starbucks is the perfect coffee shop for you.  Their new Smoked Butterscotch Frappuccino is worth every once of the hype that it’s received.  It’s definitely my new Starbuck’s drink of choice.

Now, I need some more coffee.
