Best cup of coffee in Fresno / Clovis poll: See the top 10

Last week, we ran a survey asking readers who they think made the best cup of coffee in Fresno or Clovis.

The winner was clear: Fulton Street Café.

She got 25% of the vote.

The downtown café has been located at the corner of Fulton and Tuolumne Streets, in part of the Warnors Theater Building, since 2018.

Fulton Street Coffee is a small independently owned place where customers often stop by to purchase a drink after ordering via their app.

Owner Omar Octavio Vargas is a longtime supporter of downtown and roasts his own coffee. People’s favorite, Café Con Leche is a twist on the main Latin Café de olla and inspired by a drink at the former Corazon Café.

In addition to the quality of the coffee and the “cool people” who work there, Vargas said customers appreciate the cafe’s values.

“Our customers are also grateful to have a local coffee shop with a passion for the art of roasting and brewing good coffee and a strong mission to source coffee ethically and treat employees fairly,” he said. “Companies like ours are showing people that it is possible to run a sustainable business that listens to employees and pays fair wages.”

Fulton Street Coffee beat some of the biggest players in the poll such as Starbucks, Dutch Bros and Cuba Joy.

Who also made the top ten?

The “I don’t see” option led voters to the writing field. The only coffee shop that got enough written votes to rank in the top ten (10th) was Aurum Café.
