Upshot Coffee aims to serve supreme beverages, wrapped up in an approachable experience. Let us do what we do, the upshot is what ends up in your cup. We seek the betterment of coffee with an emphasis on ethical sourcing and sweetness in roasting. Our brewing philosophy focuses on framing both of these qualities not only in your cup, but in a space where commerce and thoughtful food intersect.



Cottleville was our first location and has evolved every year since we opened.  To put it mildly, we had no idea what we were doing when we opened this cafe; we just had dreams and big ideas!  As we have consistently tweaked and improved our concept and business model, our flagship location has improved every year and we think it's the best it has ever been. From cozy countertop seating to a beautiful patio, you can enjoy your coffee or juice with your toast and enjoy a modern cafe that feels comfortable and inviting.



Brake Shop was opened in July of 2020. This building was an old Shell gas station and then for 40 years Curley's Brake Shop. Conor drove by it multiple times a week taking his son to practice and swore if it ever went up for sale he would purchase it. That day came, and we bought it and turned it into cafe number two.  It is completely unique with its glass garage doors, murals hand painted by Megan Clayton, and the Sho Sugi Ban method of preserving wood planks in our patio build-in. Grab a cup of coffee and a toast and enjoy the neighborhood feel and open, light-filled space.
