[S]eptember 29th is National Coffee Day, and cafés around the country are celebrating by giving away free coffee. We couldn’t—and wouldn’t want to—come up with a better way to celebrate, so we’ve collected some of the deals to share with you. Fun food and drink “holidays” like this are a great way to introduce new customers to your café experience, and a way to increase loyalty.

How is your café celebrating?

New York City-based Pourt is offering a free small coffee, no strings attached.

Portland, Oregon’s Fairlane Coffee is serving 12-ounce brews of Water Avenue Coffee for $1 all day long.

Le Petit Parisien in New York City is offering a free coffee with any pastry or sandwich purchase, all day.

Snooze an a.m. Eatery, a breakfast and brunch restaurant with locations in Colorado, California, Arizona, and Texas, is featuring a caffeinated take on the classic Manhattan on September 29. The cocktail is made with bourbon, Irish cream liqueur, espresso, and steamed whole milk.

Trademark Taste + Grind in New York City is offering a free serving of limited-edition Cold Brew soft serve with Mocha Crumble all day. The soft serve will stay on the menu, and available for $2–through October 1.

All Krispy Kreme locations are giving away one free hot or iced coffee—any size—to all customers through October 1.

New York City-based Birch Coffee is running a “pay what you please” program for the day.

When you take a Lyft in Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, Austin, Dallas, or Philadelphia, you’ll be treated to a free can of High Brew Cold Brew Coffee.
