Meet the Blues Brothers

Rao’s Bakery was founded in 1941 by Johnny Rao and has been a Beaumont favorite ever since. Offering both decadent sweet pastries and cakes and savory sandwiches and wraps, Rao’s is the place to go. Sit out on the front porch or the patio outside at their original location or visit their other locations around Southeast Texas. Take a selfie in front of the “famous” Blues Brothers statues that greets you outside.

Enjoy Art and Music

The Art of Coffee is part coffee shop, part Art Gallery and part Community Center. The Art of Coffee has become an institution around Bay Area Houston, welcoming locals and visitors alike with a warm cup of coffee or tea, great pastries and friendly baristas. This charming coffee shop also hosts book signing’s, art walks and open mic nights. Casual seating is available inside the shop or outside in their garden or brick patio.   

Radio Vibes

Conroe Coffee opened their doors in 2013 and has been a staple in downtown Conroe. Tracey “Leo” Harris has created an oasis for coffee lovers. Located right next to the local radio station, grab a drink, have a seat and enjoy the radio shows. Not a coffee drinker – that’s okay – try Leo’s hot chocolate! You will be glad you did.

Tour The World

At BlendIn Coffee Club in Sugar Land, each coffee is traceable back to a specific country, region, farm or even specific lot. The un-roasted coffee beans are evaluated before arriving at BlendIn, where they are roasted freshly in-store and brewed with love. Coffees are from countries like Uganda, Panama, Myanmar, Kenya, Colombia and more.

Meet Local Authors

Third Gen Coffee in The Woodlands supports local authors in a big way! They often host local children’s Author Day where they have authors come out and read, have giveaways, coloring and books for sale. Just like the name suggests, owners are third generation coffee farmers from Honduras. The coffee used in the shop is from a family farm in Honduras and they take pride in supporting their family and their community.
