Billings has numerous local coffee shops to explore, but coffee lovers will be pleased to hear that the magic city has several new coffee shops to check out!
Steady Grinding Coffee House opened a new kiosk called Steady Grinding Bikini Baristas on Main Street. The kiosk has the same great products as the coffee house with fantastic customer service that keeps people coming back. Hours of operation are from 7 am to 7 pm Monday through Friday and 8 am to 8 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Steady Grinding has all kinds of drink options like americanos, lattes, cappuccinos, and red bull smoothies.
Proof Coffee and Donuts had a soft opening in early May. The company offers coffee options and makes fresh handmade donuts daily. One donut option is a mixed berry cheesecake-filled donut with berry compote and white chocolate drizzled on top. There is also a pina colada pudding-filled donut with white chocolate and coconut shavings. Proof Donuts and Coffee is located inside Kal’s Chicken Coop. Chicken, donuts, and coffee all in one place!
The Blacksmith Coffee Company is based out of Florida, but the family-oriented coffee company has roots in Montana. Inspiration for Blacksmith coffee came from Bernard Camille Willams, originally from Laurel, Montana. Willems developed a passion for blacksmithing but sadly passed away from cancer before fully living out his passion.
Willems’s values inspired his family to create a brand around those values, allowing his legacy to move on: thus, Blacksmith coffee was born. Blacksmith Coffee Company also makes a great cause with their profits. A percentage of the company’s sales goes to cancer patients and their families.
The company plans to expand its business to at least eight coffee kiosks in Montana, with two hopefully up by August. One possible kiosk location is inside Scheel’s on the west end of Billings. Blacksmith coffee has an open drive-thru, but this family business also offers an area where others can sit, eat and enjoy one another’s company.
Their menu has plenty of delicious breakfast options with lunch options to choose from too. The restaurant’s grand opening took place in July. Blacksmith Coffee Company is open daily from 6 am to 9 pm. Everything at Blacksmith Coffee is locally made. Everything used, from the roasted beans to food options, is sourced from Montana.
Make a trip to any of these new coffee shops to start your morning (or any time of day) off right!
