Finding a nice, quiet place to study can be daunting in a city full of students. At Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, home of the Rattlers, there are three main library facilities for its students. If public spaces are too distracting, you can always browse this list of quiet apartments in Tallahassee to study in the comfort of your own space.
For some, a change of scenery can inspire one to sit down and get things done. A school library frequented by many students might not be the most productive space during finals and exam week. If this is the case for you, there are a lot of quaint coffee shops near FAMU that offer the right amount of caffeine and quiet places for your studying habits.
You might be wondering just how close these coffee shops are to all the apartments near FAMU and its main campus. Well, you are in luck because this university on the hill is in proximity to seven local coffee shops and cafés that are between a 5-to-10-minute drive from campus. This means your apartment is right around the corner from these places too!
Coffee shops are an optimal choice for students looking for a free and unique studying experience with some caffeine and pastries (unfortunately those aren't free, but they are still worth it). I invite you to explore this list of coffee shops near FAMU that might offer the specific study experience you are looking for.
Catalina Café (0.9 miles)
This College Town favorite is located near both the railroad tracks and the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center. This coffee shop offers you the chance to study in a college life environment without it being too far from home. Unless you already live in one of the college town apartments because, if so, this place might already be home to you. The chances that you might run into someone you know, or a possible new study partner is highly likely.
All Saint's Café (1.3 miles)
This place is located in the middle of the eclectic and captivating Railroad Art District right across the railroad tracks in Tallahassee. If you are health conscious, this café offers a great cup of joe and some vegan and vegetarian bites to go along with it. Not to mention, there are a lot of great apartments near the railroad square art park if you aren't looking to travel too far for an experience rich with Tallahassee art, culture, and music for some studying inspiration.
Serenity Coffee and Kava Bar (1.4 miles)
This local spot not only serves coffee but Kava, which is an herbal remedy known to help with relaxation, anxiety, and sleep. Serenity's plant-filled, earthy environment offers a more meditative experience, perfect for anyone trying to destress while studying.
Square Mug Café (1.5 miles)
Across from the Otherside Vintage Thrift Store in the heart of the railroad art district, this blue and purple painted coffee spot is hard to miss. With both indoor and outdoor seating, students can choose to study in the sun or stay in the air-conditioned building depending on individual preference.
Calvin's Coffee House (1.8 miles)
If you are looking for a unique and industrial vibe this coffee house is the place for you. Not very many students can say they've studied in a shop with green carpets and velvet red couches. For studying purposes, a little bit of cozy and character goes a long way.
Lucky Goat Coffee (3.0 miles)
This coffee location offers free Wi-Fi and a bunch of different coffee varieties to choose from. Whether you want a casual cold brew or that double shot espresso to get you through your grueling 3,000-word research essay, Lucky Goat's got you covered.
Tallahassee Cat Café (3.6 miles)
Even though this specific coffee spot is farthest from most FAMU apartments, if you are a major cat lover it's worth the drive. This cozy corner offers time with cute kittens and cat-themed cappuccinos guaranteed to provide you a boost of serotonin during your visit. If you don't want to visit the cats, there is a separate booth and lounge area perfect for setting up a computer or studying with friends.
If one thing's certain, it's that the surrounding FAMU area has a lot of great coffee spots for students eager to experience a productive study session without traveling too far.
