Madison-Area Drive-Through Coffee Shops

Let’s face it, the only time we get to drink our coffee while it’s still hot is if it’s snuggled safely into a cup holder, out of reach of the sticky hands of children strapped down in their car seats.

Coffee Cup

Some coffee shops are kid-friendly. Most are not. I have gotten my fair share of angry glares from college students and young, urban professionals when my toddlers have shattered their peaceful and focused work time with shrill screams.

When I treat myself to a caffeinated beverage that wasn’t made by me or my husband while half-asleep, and I have kids in tow, the last thing I want to do is unstrap and unleash them. Here are some Madison-area drive-though coffee shops that will help us all avoid that.

These are self-reported from other Madison-area moms, so if you notice your go-to drive-thru is missing, leave a comment and we can add it to the map!

She's called both Chicago and San Francisco home, but moved to Madison after reconnecting with her college sweetheart (now her husband) after a 9-year hiatus. After a year of staying at home full-time, she's back "at the office" as the Curriculum & Programming Director at The Well Preschool. She periodically guest lectures on the importance of play for adults in UW-Madison's Consuming Happiness course. When she's not chasing after her sons, she tries to relax with pilates, random craft classes, wine and exercises her newfound love of bingo whenever possible.
