Whether you need a cup of coffee, a scrumptious treat, or a spot to work, all these stunning spaces have you covered. Each one of these coffee shops is so unique and has its own personality. If you haven’t gotten to know all of these locations, you’re definitely missing out:

The Depot Coffee House

Located near Downtown Ruston by the railroad tracks, The Depot provides a wide range of budget-friendly drinks and treats and rotates through fun seasonal flavors throughout the year. One of their biggest seasonal hits is their drink the Zebra; this mixture of white and dark chocolate is to die for!
