Feeling a little lethargic after all that brunch talk? Us too. Nothing fights the post-meal slump like a little pick me up — we’re talking java as today, Thurs., Sept. 29, is National Coffee Day.

For someone whose phone eats (drinks) first

Poindexter Coffee Shop, 601 Landon St. (inside the Graduate Hotel)
Grab a classic drip or specialty drink from this lobby-level café. Pro tip: You’ll want some aesthetic photos to show for your coffee crawl, and this is the place to snap them.

For someone who actually just wants to dog spot

Wonderstate Coffee, 27 W. Main St.
The centrally located coffee house sees more foot traffic than almost any other cafe in town — much of which brings Fido along for the java run.

For someone looking to cozy up with a cup

Mother Fool’s Coffeehouse, 1101 Williamson St.
This Willy Street boho-chic coffee shop is a perfect venue to host an afternoon of espresso accompanied by a good book + other bites sourced from local Madison eateries.

Keep the buzz going at eight more shops + cafes.
