It’s National Coffee Day on Friday, September 29th, 2023! On this day, you can get free (or discounted) coffee at these locations in the Twin Cities and/or nationwide.
It’s fall, and I think as the air gets chillier, a warm cup of coffee sounds so wonderful. I think that’s why National Coffee Day is always on September 29th, right after fall begins. But if you like iced coffee (and the weather may still be warm enough) there are ways to get free iced coffee as well! This is a starter list – I’ll be posting more deals as I find them!
(Note: The cappuccino and muffin in the above photo I took are from Penny’s in Minneapolis, which unfortunately is closed now. Yeah, I know – Looks yum-o, right? Um, yeah! Ah-ma-zing. But all the coffee in this post is fabulous too – but even better ‘cuz it’s FREE or discounted!)
