The Houston coffee scene is excessively friendly in a way that is so uniquely Houston. Owners of coffee shops, baristas, managers, and roasters all support and encourage each other instead of operating as competitors. Different coffee shops will host pour-offs with the city’s best baristas, hold charity events, and generally intermingle by bonding over the universal love of a great cup of Joe.
These cafes have breakfast, pastries, tacos, and cute little spots to get some work done while you sip. Whether you’re looking for an iced latte while shopping and exploring or a necessary jolt of caffeine for a weekday meeting, the best coffee in Houston is never more than a few blocks away.
