Barnes & Noble Cafe // Whether you go for the coffee or books, be sure to take advantage of both. With Starbucks products available, the cafe will offer tall coffee, iced or hot. Multiple locations,

Duck Donuts // The North Carolina-based chain may draw you in with their super creative donuts, but Saturday will be all about coffee. Buy a donut, or anything for that matter, and you'll get a free small cup of java to wash it down. 11703 Huebner Road, Suite #113, (210) 476-5500,
