For many, there is no better way to start off your morning than with a fresh cup of coffee. The steamy aroma fills your nostrils with the promise of a productive day. There is much to see and do around Hersheypark, but, if you’re not feeling up to the challenge, it can be a long day. Luckily for you, The Central Hotel & Conference Center places you within a short distance of many premier Harrisburg coffee shops to get you prepped for your adventure-filled day. Here are a few of our favorite spots.

Little Amps Coffee Roasters

With four locations throughout the Harrisburg area, Little Amps Coffee Roasters is unique in every sense of the word. It comes as no surprise their inspiration is rooted in the artsy coffee shops populating much of San Francisco. Besides offering a wide variety of coffee with amusing names like You’ve Got a Friend Blend and Debbie Decaf, they sell vinyl records, brewing equipment for those inclined to give it a go, and even coffee subscriptions to your favorite flavors. 

Elementary Coffee Co. 

For a more subdued and laid back experience, you can’t go wrong with Elementary Coffee Co. They take pride in a more simplistic approach to coffee and are on a mission of making the transition from farmer to your brewed cup as honest as possible by using sustainable practices and craft-roasted beans. Similar to Little Amps, Elementary wants to share the coffee experience by providing tutorials, demonstrations, and consulting for those wanting to cultivate their own brewing skills. 

Anna Rose Bakery & Coffee Shop

Though a good number of Harrisburg coffee shops are located along the Susquehanna River, you’d be hard-pressed to find nearly as many bakeries—and that’s where Anna Rose comes in. Offering cupcakes, muffins, and cookies baked fresh daily, you’ll be put in a place of comfort with every bite you take. They also offer an extensive drink list including coffee, cappuccinos, frappes, and cold brew.
