Coffee shop AUs are like that fandom staple, aren’t they? Seeing as how Tony sort of lends himself to the idea of coffee, we definitely have some good ones in Stony.  Here are some suggestions:

shop where Steve spends a lot of his time, because it’s the perfect

coming in for a different reason.

only goes in for one cup but can’t stop coming back for the coffee. He
says it’s the coffee. Spoiler alert: It’s not. It’s Tony.“Why do you come here?”Tony thinks.“It’s
small. Tucked away. No one notices it. I like that,” he smiles, laughs a
little “I like that it’s kinda just… ignored. You only notice it when
you really need it.”“Like when you need shelter from the rain,” Steve says“Or coffee.” Tony finishes with a smile.“Or coffee.” Steve finishes with a sigh.

having people pander to him, but this one barista keeps misspelling his
name in increasingly insulting ways.

it.Today will be a good day.

shop, he’s determined to make sure the man knows how good of a coffee he
can make. But when Tony acts in a completely different manner to how
Steve had hoped, he takes it as a challenge.Tony Stark will know the wrath of Steve’s perfectly amazing coffee, and Steve will make sure of it.

Whatcha Writing? by DaftPunk DeLorean:
Steve is a starving artist who gets by as an author of erotica and adult
fantasies. Tony is the dashingly handsome owner of the coffee shop
where Steve spends all his time writing, and who also happens to be
Steve’s full-time muse. Steve’s stories involve adventure, romance,
steamy sex, and most importantly, Tony. But writing lusty fantasies
about his muse was one thing; falling helplessly, hopelessly,
head-over-heels in love with him was something entirely different.

and thinks maybe he wants to take him home, just this once.

Sometimes a Fantasy by @polizwrites: Steve works mornings at a coffeeshop in a downtown NYC
skyscraper.  He’s got a slight crush on one of the customers who stops
by for his daily dose of caffeine. Not that Steve would have a chance
with the genius playboy (straight – SO straight) billionaire
philanthropist, of course. But Steve also moonlights as a phone
sex operator, working for Fury Enterprises.  Anthony, an older guy still
more or less in the closet and just starting to explore his
bisexuality, becomes one of Steve’s steady clients. Along with the
steamy scenarios they play out, they actually get to know one other.
Cue the identity porn with Steve’s two worlds colliding (eventually)

secret crush.

Collision Course (Or How Tony Almost Broke His Nose) by StonyAvengerGirl16:
On a block in NYC there are two shops. A neat little coffee shop sits on
the left, while a chaotic but popular bookstore sits on the right. The
owners are both head over heels for each other, but are adamant they
will not talk to the other. They unknowingly frequent each other’s shops
during their respective lunches, and one day a simple decision by both
leads to a fated collision. Just not in the way they both imagined. Cue
complete and utter cuteness, and their friends don’t know which is

many days.  So when the stunning blond muscle-head behind the counter
gives him some lip for his rude behavior, he swears he’ll blacklist that
hokey cafe and put him out of business.Then he tastes his latte,
and falls in love.  And comes back to badger the gorgeous barista into
paying attention to him.  Poor Steve just wants Tony to stop flirting
outrageously with him in front of the customers, that can’t be good for
business, no matter what Natasha says.And then Loki shows up and makes everything terrible, per usual.

Rogers’ Cafe by orphan_account:
Tony walked in, and briefly considered walking out again. The source of
the voice wasn’t just a hot blond worker, it was a six-foot,
all-american, beefcake of a hot blond worker, who was staring right at
Tony. Tony in all of his ratty, funky-smelling, unshaven, and sleep
deprived glory.
