Maverick Coffee may not seem like much from the outside, but don’t let that fool you. Inside it is buzzing with atmosphere and incredible coffee. Look out for their daily happy hour when coffee is discounted, as well as the featured bean of the month. On Fridays, beat the barista in a game of rock/paper/scissors and win a free coffee.
