The city of Providence is filled with college students. With classes, extracurriculars, and a social life, many students would probably claim themselves to be avid coffee drinkers. There is just something about having the perfect cup of coffee that makes everything better. Living here for a couple of years now, I've been able to get the inside scoop. If you are not in the mood for the coffee or tea on your campus, here are four cafes in Providence you definitely need to go to.

1. Sydney PVD 

This Australian-inspired cafe just opened this past summer! It's an open and airy space that is perfect for both a good study session or a nice catch up with friends. They serve a full coffee, espresso, and loose tea selection along with freshly baked goods. Their specialty is breakfast, specifically their avocado toast! It's located right near the Amtrak train station in the Waterplace park area. It has a very modern look to it, and it is in a perfect location. It is right in the center of the city. Go check it out and fall in love.

2. White Electric 

This is one of my personal favorites. White Electric is an artsy, smaller cafe found on the West Side of Providence. They brew their own special blends of New Harvest Coffee. Along with classic coffee choices, they serve a simple and delicious menu for breakfast and lunch. It's a nice spot to go to when you want a peaceful morning or afternoon. It's like the ultimate hipster cafe that we all dream of for our Instagrams. Just like my bagel above, everything in there is truly Instagram worthy.

3. The Duck and Bunny 

Have you ever really been to Providence if you have not been to The Duck and Bunny? This classic staple of Providence is a quaint tea room that serves all day brunch. Yes, you read that correctly: all day brunch. If you are not in the mood for a full meal, you can easily go for a quick cappuccino and have your choice of their delightful cupcake selection (I highly recommend the Nutella Peanut Butter cupcake with a latte). It is found on Wickenden Street and is not too far for PVD Donuts!!

4. Hudson Street Deli 

Well, this is not necessarily cafe, the coffee and tea here are of very high quality. All of their coffee and tea is organic and brewed daily. Also, their breakfast sandwiches are to die for. I am a native New Yorker, so I have high standards for my bacon, egg, and cheeses. The sandwiches here go past my expectations. For the ultimate breakfast/brunch trip, head over here and get a fresh iced coffee with a homemade breakfast sandwich on a bagel. It is one of the best ways to start your morning. 

If you go to school in the Providence area, all of these spots are within in close distance of all the major universities in the city. If you need a new cafe in Providence to go to, certainly check out these four. I promise that you will not be disappointed.
