The stars have spoken, and they said you need coffee.

We’ve hand-picked the following coffee shops based on where we feel each sign would most enjoy a cup of joe. Don’t forget to check your sun, moon, and rising signs for a fully rounded coffee horoscope.

Find them all on this map.

♈︎ Aries: Little Brother Coffee & Kolaches | March 20–April 19
For the energetic Aries, we’re going to get you in and out of the shop. Stop by Little Brother’s micro shops on Rainey Street or South Congress Avenue for a latte and kolache to-go.

♉️ Taurus: Flat Track Coffee Roasters | April 19–May 20
The Taurus homebody can have the best of both worlds: an artisan latte in-store and a bag of beans to make their favorite cup of coffee from their kitchen. As a bonus, Flat Track doubles as a bike shop for the days this sign needs to get out of the house.

♊︎ Gemini: The Hive | May 20–June 21
Connect with nature without leaving behind creature comforts at The Hive, a coffee shop, bar, restaurant, and garden all in one. Geminis will enjoy the locally sourced beans, happy hour specials, and off-the-beaten-path location.

♋️ Cancer: Flightpath Coffeehouse | June 21–July 22
This cozy coffee shop is a cozy rendez-vous for Cancers, lovers of the familiar. With a worn-in interior, well-loved outdoor patio, and food options from neighboring local restaurants, Flightpath will make this water sign feel right at home.

♌️ Leo: Revival Coffee | July 22–August 22
With an all-pink interior and colorful drinks to match, the Instagrammability of this coffee shop and bar is off the chain. We see bathroom mirror selfies in the future for the Leo who wants to stand out.

From the editor
You were all so gracious not to point out how I forgot to fill in my recommendations from Lutie’s on Monday morning. It was all so good that I fell asleep trying to decide which dishes were my favorite.

It’s a farm-to-table restaurant, so the menu changes often, but we were wowed by the scallop crudo, estate bread, swordfish, and medico muerte cocktail.
