1. Just Love Coffee Cafe

You won’t find any shortage of local cafes on this list, and Just Love Coffee Cafe is a favorite of our followers! There’s more than delicious coffee at this location, though — they’re serving breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday, as well as a wide variety of artisan waffles.

2. Big Spring Park

There’s nothing like the burst of creativity and inspiration you get from being outside. Be sure to bring your favorite picnic blanket and all your study materials, and relax in the beautiful spring weather.

Gold Sprint is a favorite Huntsville spot for hangouts, work meetings and — you guessed it — studying. Whether you’re with friends or having a private study session, be sure to treat yourself to a latte or something off their food menu.

4. Piper + Leaf

There are plenty of Piper and Leaf locations to choose from across North Alabama, each with their own cozy atmosphere. From black and green teas to sweet fruit tisanes, Piper and Leaf is ready to supply you with the perfect blend for your study session.

5. Lowe Mill

The second you step inside Lowe Mill, you’re immersed in the buzzing atmosphere that has made it the creative hub it is. Wander down one of the many corridors or take a seat in Dragon’s Forge Cafe, you’re bound to find your new favorite study spot.

BONUS: A personal favorite

My go-to spot to study lately has been Honest Coffee Roasters in Madison. Although I claim to be adventurous, I tend to stick to my favorites, the Bee’s Knees latte and Kona Bowl — they give me the perfect boost to blast through my work.
