Hi All!!! I'm new to the site and i am thinking of coming up with a coffee shop name. My friend is planning to open a coffee shop business and she is asking me to suggest an interesting name. She thought of Legally Brewed or Bean Here --- What do you think guys? Any more suggestions? thanks for your help. Have a nice a day!!!

Cafe Nation, A Cup Above, Grounds Zero - too bad I can't think of any GOOD ones at the moment.

"Grounds Zero" would, most likely, have a pretty negative association to anyone from the NY Metro area.

Seems like a flippant use of a phrase most people associate with the site of a national tragedy. 

I live in NY and was much closer than I'd like to have been to the WTC on 9/11-so I might be a little sensitive.

Yes, that could be a valid concern.  At the time I was thinking of Morgan Freeman's blues club in Clarksdale, Mississippi called Ground Zero.  It was named before the events in New York, and simply refers to the place where it all started.  If you are into blues, you know about that area of the delta and its significance in blues history.

I like Legally Brewed, that is a solid name! I am an attorney and would go into a coffee shop with that name any day!

I like Legally Brewed. There's a story behind it. It really depends which market your friend is targeting and how they want to position the brand. So in a financial district Legally Brewed would be great. But in a high-tech area full of geeks, perhaps not so great . They would probably like Caffein'd or Code Bean (as an example).

Hmm....wonder if TamTam is still viewing...but anywho,

 

I like Caffiend -  it  defines a coffee addict so well smile.gif

Also Legally Brewed (a play on Legally Blonde I am guessing?) is good too.  An addictive drug that is legal. And yummy.

 

How about "Brewsters"?

What is the "identity" of the place supposed to be?  Is it "just another coffee shop", or is there some underlying point of differentiation?  For instance, "Fresh Roast" might be good if your selling point is roasting the beans in-house.  However, if you're just buying coffee off the back of the Sysco truck, your customers would expect a better product to be served and the name wouldn't fit.

 

I would stay away from anything with a specialized-sounding name unless you're trying to reach a specific demographic (to the exclusion of others).  For instance, if I walk into Desperado's Cantina, I'm not expecting to order Kung Pao Chicken.  "Tea Time" would make me expect something more European influenced than American.

 

If you're a coffee shop as a "hangout", then maybe Java Lounge would be an option.  If you're wanting a huge drive-through business, then "Java Express" might be better. 

 

One word of caution is to not try to be "too cute".  For instance "Expresso" for a drive-through coffee shop would look more like someone who has no idea how to make coffee, since it's an over-used incorrect spelling/pronunciation.

This is my own personal opinion. I can't stand coffee shops with stupid names. My favorite coffee places are Coffee Call and Cresent City Coffee. Nothing fancy.
