Energy drinks at coffee shops have been a trendy thing for a while and, though my fuel of choice is always espresso, I decided to comb the QCA for some of the best energy drinks at local coffee stops.

I went to (and this is the unofficial office ranking we came up with of the drinks too):

  • Atomic Coffee Co. (Davenport)
  • Cody Road Coffee (LeClaire)
  • Awake Coffee Co. (Rock Island)
  • Sips Coffee (Eldridge)
  • The Coffee Revolution (Davenport)

At each of these spots, I got an energy drink to try. Several of these places had a big menu of energy drinks, so if you don't love the flavors I chose, I would be willing to bet that there's at least one that's to your liking.

If you haven't noticed the energy drink menus at coffeehouses, a lot of these drinks at coffee places like these are made with syrups and Monster or Rockstar Energy drinks and, while they may be yummy, keep in mind that they can be very high in sugar. So maybe don't have a dozen every day.

Even if you don't live or work near any of these spots, it's still good info to keep in your back pocket next time you go near LeClaire, Eldridge, or any of the places on the list. Sometimes we need a pick-me-up and these drinks provide that boost. So before I transition completely back to my lattes and mochas, here are the energy drinks I got and tried, what we thought, and what you can get.

Flights are a trendy restaurant thing and they're really good when you can't decide what you'd like to try. Beers and wines are common flights, so we decided to find some you may not know about that are in our backyard!
