Cafes in South Akron

Select Local Merchants

A nonprofit, java-centric venture, Urbean Café brews and serves steaming cups of locally roasted coffee in order to support Urban Connection, a community-outreach program designed to provide employment training to disadvantaged members of the community. The café menu stars fresh, Akron-roasted beans in a stimulating selection of coffee concoctions ($1–$4), alongside a tasty supporting ensemble of seasonal sandwiches ($3.50), soups ($2), muffins ($1), and more. The eco-friendly café building boasts solar-power panels, geothermal heating and cooling, and a noticeable absence of stove-burning stoves. The mobile Urbun Cart makes it easier than ever to guzzle a tummy-warming drink while enjoying the all-over warmth that comes with helping others.

Though it opened without the draw of liquor or advertising, Karma Kafe always had one thing going for it: more than 30 hookah flavors. Word of mouth quickly spread about the wide selection, which ranges from cinnamon spice and gummy bear to double apple, a tasty take on apple pie smothered in applesauce. To supplement the hookah frenzy, Karma Kafe has since added a concise sampling of domestic and imported beers alongside cocktails such a Long Island Iced Tea. Savvy servers also soothe taste buds with an assortment of green teas and herbal tea infusions such as the Calm blend, a caffeine-free mix of relaxing herbs including chamomile.
