Some tourists say Virginia Beach is known for it's three-mile boardwalk. But others say it's the food that keeps them coming back to Virginia Beach. If you're a true local, you're in on the little known secret of the VB coffee shop scene. Over the past five or ten years, small, locally run coffee shops have been popping up all over VB, especially near the oceanfront. 

Each coffee shop has its own specialty. From smoothie bowls to bizarre latte flavors to delicious breakfast sandwiches, no matter what you choose, you'll find amazing decor surrounding you as you place your order. 

You won't be disappointed at any of these VB hidden treasures, but if you're looking for a new coffee shop, leave it up to the stars. With that, here's which Virginia Beach coffee shop you should visit according to your zodiac sign.

Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18): Perked Up! Coffee Cafe

You're inventive and original, just like the owners of Perked Up. They're known for using coffee ice cubes in their iced coffee. You can take your time drinking your cold coffee on a hot summer day and not have to worry about it getting watered down. Brilliant, I know.

Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20): Starbucks

You're devoted and accepting. You're perfectly okay with going with the flow, which is why when your friends ask if you want to go to Starbucks for the hundredth time, you're more than happy to oblige. 

What makes this VB Starbucks special is it's just steps from King Neptune and the boardwalk. Grab your drink of choice and go for a stroll. Take a deep breath and enjoy your Starbucks favorite while listening to the sound of waves crashing.

Aries (Mar 21st-April 19th): Roast Rider Coffee and Tea

As a strong, independent person, you tend to shy away from big crowds. That's why Roast Rider is the perfect coffee shop for you. 

Nestled away from the hustling crowds of the oceanfront, Roast Rider is located in Hilltop Shopping Center, just a five-minute drive from the beach. Stop by for a quick breather when tourist season gets to be too much. 

Taurus (April 20th-May 20th): Three Ships Coffee Roasters

Three Ships Coffee always has a wide array of fresh drip coffees to choose from as well as the best cold brew I have ever had. That's why it's the perfect match for a dependable Taurus. 

During the summer months, Three Ships Coffee has a booth at the Saturday farmer's market. From 9 am to noon, you can pick up locally grown produce and handmade gifts after you get your morning joe. 

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Badass Coffee

As an imaginative person, any Gemini will be able to fully appreciate the unique Badass Coffee menu. With over 25 signature lattes to choose from, you will never run out of new things to try at Badass Coffee

Looking for a recommendation? The house favorite is the Kreme de Kona latte. Combining white chocolate, dark chocolate, and vanilla flavors, this latte also comes in a caramel variation for those who want to go the extra mile. 

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Lynnhaven Coffee Company

Lynnhaven Coffee Company is well known in the Virginia Beach area for roasting their own coffee beans. Lots of time and hard work go into preparing the beans at their own roasting facility just down the road from this coffee shop. Only a caring Cancer can really appreciate the time that this coffee company puts into every single cup. 

Leo (July 23-Aug 22): Zeke's Beans and Bowls

As a Leo, you know what it means to be confident and ambitious. That's why Zeke's Beans and Bowls is the coffee shop for you. They're not scared of being entirely different from any other place. 

While Zeke's may not put the emphasis on coffee that some other coffee shops do, but the whole experience makes this place great. When served alongside one of their smoothies or rice bowls, Zeke's coffee is absolutely perfect. 

Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22): Cafe Moka

Located well away from the chaotic oceanfront, this coffee shop is reliable, just like a true Virgo. It is the perfect stop for when you are craving a peaceful, quiet environment to enjoy your cup of coffee in. 

Virgo, you're a really helpful person, so let the tables turn for a change. Sit back and enjoy the simple things in life with one of Cafe Moka's beautifully crafted drinks. 

Libra (Sep 23-Oct 22): Java Surf Cafe and Espresso Bar

Libra, you're always the idealistic, peaceful friend. Java Surf is the perfect place for you to pick up a satisfying pre-beach day meal. You'll feel right at home with the beach decor and laid-back surfer vibe. 

Their menu is full of fresh, unique sandwiches only outshone by the wide array of coffee and espresso options to choose from. Just take it a few steps down the road to watch the sunrise. 

Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21): American Brew

Dynamic and resourceful, a Scorpio looks for a little more than a plain old coffee shop. Look no further than American Brew. No need to decide whether you're in the mood for a caffeinated or alcoholic pick-me-up when you visit American Brew because, yes, you can have both

Offering a large selection of coffee and whiskey drinks, American Brew is the perfect place to hang out with friends. They often have live music, so you should definitely plan to stay awhile. 

Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21): Quintin's Tea Emporium

Quintin's Tea Emporium is the perfect "coffee shop" for the always-independent Sagittarius. You walk to the beat of your own drum, which is why this tea shop is the best place for you.

Of all your friends, you're always the one to suggest a new restaurant. You may make everyone a little nervous at first, but no one can deny your talent at picking the best spots. Next time, bring your friends to Quintin's to explore the shop's never-ending collection of unique tea flavors.

Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19): The Stockpot

A patient and ambitious Capricorn would be right at home at The Stockpot. This little shop has been around for years, offering a menu of healthy options, waiting patiently as its customer base grew and grew. 

Once you go in, you'll want to keep coming back, not only for the rockstar coffee, but also for their delicious breakfast and lunch options.

Hopefully during your stay in Virginia Beach, whether short or long, you'll get to try a number of these amazing local coffee shops. I know I truly enjoy having them all within a few miles all year long. They're all just as unique as the King Neptune statue himself, so I highly recommend stopping by more than one. 

The stars will only tell you where to begin. From there, you'll discover that Virginia Beach is a caffeine-filled city just waiting to be explored.
