There are few things more satisfying than being able to get your daily caffeine fix and support a local business at the same time.

We’ve rounded up all of Madison’s local coffee shops so that you can shop small next time you need a boost. Here’s the guide:

1. Black Dog Grounds & Sounds

If your idea of a good time includes a fresh cup of coffee and curated vinyl records, Black Dog Grounds & Sounds (which we covered last fall) might be the spot for you. Grab a cup to sip while you peruse the collection, or head over on Thursday night to hear local comedians at the weekly open mic.
