You want to start your mornings off right, so what better way to do that than with a nice cup of coffee. Sure, you could swing through Starbucks, but there are way better places to grab a cup of coffee and also support our local businesses. When you travel to a new place, it can be hard to know where to go for the best food and drink options; you want to go where the locals go. Checkout our pick of top Coffee Shops in the Lake area below:


1. Serendipity Roasting Company – 18 S Maple St., Eldon, MO

Serendipity is near and dear to our hearts because the owners are long-time family friends of ours.

Be sure to checkout their array of cupcakes, muffins and more, all hand-crafted and fresh. Have gluten or dairy allergies? They have you covered with gluten free and vegan options too! But the deliciousness doesn’t stop there, they also offer a variety of lunch and dinner options from soups and sandwiches on fresh made bread to pizzas and more!
