Food & Wine has released the findings from its “quasi-scientific, potentially controversial” survey of America’s Favorite Food Cities. From the places with the best “food truck scene” to those with the “most pretentious foodies,” they lay out the landscape of America in the best way possible: through eating.
For example, if you’re looking for a great brew to start your day—and 61% of adult Americans are—there could be a great cup of Joe nearby. The champion—no surprise—was Seattle, but Chicago, San Francisco, New York City, and Austin also made the list of the top 10 cities with the best coffee. Apparently, you can also get a decent cup in Honolulu, too.
Now for something else that will wake you up—in 2013, the average American spent more than $20 per week on coffee runs, according to one survey. But who says you need to shell out $5 (or live in one of these 10 cities) for a great cup of coffee? You can brew your own perfect cup—and make any barista jealous.
Here are the top ten caffeine-happy cities. Did yours make the list? Check out Food & Wine’s survey results for more of America’s favorites!
