Bring Your Own...and Save Money!

Last week, I shared about the importance of skipping the reusable coffee cups - you can still have your daily habit and perfect Instagram shots without contributing to unnecessary waste.

One of the extra bonuses of bringing your reusable mug to the coffee shop is finding the ones that will give you discounts for doing so! Starbucks will give 10 cents off your coffee with your mug, but in the spirit of this blog, I want to focus more on the locally owned businesses.

Acadiana has a long list of locally owned coffee shops, and many of them offer discounts for patrons who bring their own mug in. To make it easy for all of you, I set out to compile a comprehensive list of each shop's offer.

And following the list is a custom map of every location with their offer included! You're welcome and Merry Early Christmas.

The Lab

River Ranch's The Lab offers 10% off on all drinks with a reusable mug or tumbler, and on Saturday mornings, bring in your favorite reusable mug and get your drink for $3.


Purchase a reusable Indulge tumbler for $9.95 and receive 25% off all coffee or tea drinks when you reuse the tumbler.

Reve Coffee Roasters

Reve gives 10% off for guests who bring in a reusable cup.

Tribe Collective

In addition to coffee, Tribe Collective and Emerge Juice sell fresh juice and kombucha in glass jars. They take 10% off your purchase when you bring your own mug, or reuse one of their glass jars. Note: Tribe is relocating to University Ave. on November 14!

Jammin Java

For the Youngsville and Milton crowds, Jammin Java takes 25 cents off your order with your reusable mug, and you get an extra stamp on their punch card app!

Black Cafe

On the edge of downtown, Black Cafe offers 40 cents off your coffee with your reusable mug.

CC's Coffee House

With four locations in the Lafayette area, CC's offers a 10 cent discount when you bring in your own mug or tumbler. The discount is good at all locations, not just the ones in Lafayette.

The Steep House

New to the scene, The Steep House tea shop doesn't currently offer a discount, but they may have something exciting in the works, so stay tuned.

Beau Bassin Cafe

Located in the heart of Carencro, Beau Bassin focus on reducing waste in the shop by using reusable items. Due to the specific sizing of their drinks, they don't offer a discount for bringing your own mug in. Stop in to get your drink and use their reusable cups instead of getting one to-go!

These coffee shops haven't provided discount information as of publish time. This list (and the map) will be updated as information comes in.
