Looking for a new neighborhood café? Try GrindHouse, a coffeehouse/bakery in the Independence Heights neighborhood. From apple fritters and sandwiches to smoothies, frappes, and coffee creations, the small café makes everything fresh with local ingredients.
GrindHouse is quickly getting a name for its acclaimed coffee (brewed with Houston’s own, Katz Coffee) and their hot sandwiches. The Cuban sandwich in particular is worth mentioning. Tony Buono, co-owner with Patrick Villarreal, originated the Cuban in his hometown Tampa, FL.
GrindHouse is open Monday through Friday from 5:30 am to 5 pm. and Saturday 5:30 am to 2 pm. Currently, they are closed on Sundays.
