Where to Get Coffee at Universal Studios Orlando

Whether you need coffee to start your day or to beat the inevitable mid-day slump from an action-packed theme park day, you are probably wondering where to get coffee at Universal Studios Orlando. And is there a Starbucks in Universal Orlando?

We are sharing all of the coffee locations at Universal Orlando Resort to stay caffeinated during your vacation.

Starbucks at Universal Orlando

Universal Orlando Resort has several Starbucks locations in the theme parks, CityWalk and resorts.

At these Universal Studios Starbucks, you will generally find the same beverage options and food choices that you would find at a Starbucks back home, although selections can differ slightly.

Universal Studios Florida

Located in the New York area opposite Louie’s Italian Restaurant. This is near The Mummy and Fast and Furious attractions.

Islands of Adventure

Located in Port of Entry which is at the front of the theme park just after entering the main ticket gates. It is located just as you go towards Marvel Super Hero Island.

Universal CityWalk Orlando

Located across from the Cinemark movie theater after the moving walkway ends.

Universal Orlando Resorts

Starbucks coffee is served up at all official Universal Orlando Resort hotels. Some resorts have actual Starbucks cafes, including:


Located in Universal CityWalk, Today Cafe is themed like the NBC early morning news program, because NBCUniversal owns Universal Studios.

This quick-service cafe is a great place to have breakfast at Universal CityWalk Orlando before going into the theme parks.

It is also a great place to grab a cup of Joe mid-day when you need a break from the crowds of the parks. If you come here to get some coffee, you can easily re-enter Universal Studios theme parks later in the day.

There are a variety of ways to enjoy your coffee at this bright and airy cafe, including:

  • Hot coffee
  • Iced coffee
  • Espresso
  • Nitro blends
  • Lattes
  • Cappuccinos

Lard Lad offers the classic coffee and donuts pairing with their basic, yet bold, cups of hot coffee.

  • Iced coffee
  • Cold Brew
  • Cappuccino
  • Espresso
  • Latte
  • Macchiato
  • Americano
  • Peppermint mocha latte

All coffee beverages have the option for flavor add-ins.

VooDoo Donut

If you want a sugar fix and a caffeine hit, then go to Voodoo Donut at Universal CityWalk.

This donut chain is more popular in Oregon, Colorado and Texas, but they do have locations at both Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.

Located next to the NBC Sports Grill and Brew, this franchise donut shop serves up Nosso Familia coffee.

Universal’s Fresh Eats

If you really need coffee first thing in the morning and you haven’t gotten any at your hotel, then Universal’s Fresh Eats in the Security Rotunda of the parking garage is going to be your quickest caffeine fix.

This food stall serves up three choices of Starbucks coffees as well as a few choices of VooDoo Donuts. Since most people walk right by this kiosk to get to the theme parks quickly, you probably won’t find the long lines like you will at the Starbucks or Voo Doo Donuts locations.
