Cranberry's Coffee Boom

It’s the best part of waking up – and Cranberry is full of places to get a morning boost.

Cranberry’s coffee scene has been percolating in recent years with several new spots taking a seat at the table.

Check out these places that have a “latte” of options brewing.

Coffee Brake

305 Tillary Lane in the Meeder development

In 2021, the Cranberry location opened its doors in the Meeder development, offering a go-to, cozy, familiar place that owner Stephanie Oliver hopes is a “home away from home” for customers. It’s become just that, serving as the neighborhood stop for those in the housing plan and beyond.

Stop by and take a “brake” from a busy day!

Kairos Coffee Roaster and Tea Co.

8001 Rowan Road

kairoscoffeeroaster.comKairosWhile the COVID-19 pandemic was a challenge for all businesses, Bruce Burman saw an opportunity.

Burman, who founded Kairos in 2006, was forced to close his Iron Mountain shop due to the pandemic. Enter a 1982 Shoop horse trailer outfitted with everything needed to serve up great drinks.

Situated on Rowan Road, the bright red trailer gained an immediate following. Burman then expanded via a vintage 1971 Airstream coffee trailer created just for Kairos.

With its shiny silver adorned with lights and seasonal decorations, the only thing better than the high-quality drinks is the friendly conversation.

Maxine’s Coffee

That’s the motivation behind Cranberry’s newest coffee house. Inspired by and named for owner Brandon Grbach’s grandmother, Maxine’s menu is deliciously simple.

The shop is situated next to Steel City Clothing, the brand founded and owned by Grbach and his wife, Carly. As is the case at Steel City, Maxine’s is Pittsburgh to its core with coffee exclusively roasted in the city.

And for those warmer days, the shop is near a large outdoor patio with a gas firepit, providing the perfect setting for a meeting with old or new friends.


1713 Mars-Crider Road and 1302 Freedom Road
