Oh-my-latte! Dallas' love for coffee continues to grow at a rapid pace thanks to a healthy portion of shops and cafés that cater to every coffee lover. From a simple pour over, to an elegant lavender latte, you can rest easy knowing that your next epic cup of coffee is always within arm's reach.
Eat, sip, repeat. That's easy to remember, right? This cozy coffee shop practically guarantees a taste of tranquility during every visit. If the atmosphere speaks to your Parisian soul, you're spot on. Sous Le Pont, meaning "under the bridge" in French, the bold, cerulean colored façade is your cue to stop at 2727 Harwood.
Sip this: Try the Purple Haze. Their lavender latte is a floral forward hug in a mug that can be enjoyed all year long. It's balanced with a hint of vanilla that makes it smooth until the very last sip.
Taste that: Call it basic if you must but their melt in your mouth croissants are anything but.
What began in the Dallas Design District has now expanded into two other trendy locations that will wow your taste buds with every cup. All thanks to a little science, creativity and an extra splash of love.
Sip this: With a mix of brewing methods that mirror an MIT lab, there's a reason why they serve one of the best cups of joe in town. Order the espresso that's full of flavor including subtle yet satisfying notes of chocolate.
Taste that: Morning, noon or night, Ascension's farm-to-table menu covers even the most unique tastes. Go for brunch and get the Ricotta Hotcakes - it's a game changer that gets better with every bite!
This trendy coffee concept fits perfectly among a group of other foodie-friendly spots along Greenville Avenue. It's here where you'll find knowledgeable baristas that can cater to your unique tastes or help you discover a new world of caffeinated bliss.
Sip this: Go from zero to sixty without batting an eye thanks to their refreshing Iced Totty. This 16-hour cold brew coffee is nothing like the cup you'll get at that one place with the green sign. It's all things delicious with the perfect amount of punch.
Taste that: Three words: maple glazed bacon. That's the star of the show if you decide to order the Breakfast Sammie that comes with scrambled eggs and sharp cheddar cheese between a buttery croissant.
Cup after cup, it always feels like the weekend at this cute and playful coffee shop inside the Joule Hotel in Downtown Dallas - no hotel key card required. It's quickly become the go-to spot for hotel guests and just about anyone else who happens to love all things coffee.
Sip this: Treat yourself to a Chai Latte the next time you stop by. A bit on the sweet side, it's as if they secretly drop a cookie at the bottom of every glass. Good for on the go sips but so much better when you can kick back, relax and enjoy the ambiance.
Taste that: Order from their assortment of pastries or dangerously delicious doughnuts. But the real secret is their breakfast tacos. Get there early to beat the rush and score one before they run out! If luck isn't on your side, the ham and cheese croissant is a solid runner up.
This East Dallas staple is a small but mighty micro roastery that serves a hand selected mix of options to please your palate. Thriving off their passion to provide the best experience possible, this hip coffee shop even has training classes to help bring out the very best barista in us all.
Sip this: Named after the Spanish word "to cut" the Cortado is an excellent choice for when you're just not ready to go all in for an Espresso. Half espresso, half steamed milk, it pairs well with a good book during a slow and steady Sunday morning.
Taste that: Come to Cultivar for the coffee but stay for one of Goodfriend Package's artisanal sandwich. These two amigos make full use of their shared space and passes along the benefits to their guests. Dig into one of their signature breakfast biscuits or try the "Big Boy" featuring sausage, bacon, scrapple, ham and egg with white cheddar on a ciabatta roll.
Not to get all philosophical or anything but this isn't your ordinary coffee shop. The folks over at Brewed+Press are firm believers in the old adage, "you are what you eat." With that discipline in mind, guests continue to rave over their organic, guilt-free options.
Sip this: Feeling bold? Step up to the counter and order a Sacred Brew. This hot 12-ounce cup of joy is crafted to perfection using Stumptown coffee, raw coconut oil and grass-fed ghee.
Taste that: Berry Crunch Chai Seed Pudding. Just don't let the pudding part fool you. This yummy breakfast item is packed with tons of healthy ingredients that will help you power through the day including chia seeds, fresh strawberries, apples, nutmeg, almonds and more. It's so good that you'll feel healthier just reading the ingredients.
Now it's up to you to break free from the norm and try new flavors, discover a new spot and above all, don't forget to thank your barista.
