Where to find Metroplex’s best lattes, drip coffee, and specialty drinks.
Bloom Cafe is a family affair. Pop in and find owner Saria Almaktabi or one of her family members at work. They also love experimenting with the menu, offering limited-time specialty drinks. One could come here every month and try something completely new. And for the sparkle lovers, try the Bloom Boosters — a refreshing drink with edible glitter.
Arwa Yemeni Coffee
Try the Yemeni coffee experience in Richardson at this locally owned and operated shop. The beans are sourced from Yemen, and the shop’s building is conducive to the community — sharable coffee is the Yemeni way.
Ralph & Rose
Located at North Haven Gardens, this little coffee shop and boutique is great to grab a cup at and then look around the garden center’s grounds. There’s also a tiny garden out back where one can sit with a coffee and do some inner reflecting. It also serves small bites and pastries.
Sugar & Sage Bakery
This Park Cities bakery, owned by mother/daughter duo Alison and Ashley Sage Weinstein, is also a coffee shop — which makes it perfect for those days one needs a little something extra with their cuppa. It’s got a little wonderland of an outdoor area to sip in. And it roasts with beans from Dallas’s own Noble Coyote Coffee Roasters.
Cultivar Coffee Roasting Co.
An OG of the Dallas coffee scene, Cultivar has a rabid following. The menu is simple but solid every single time. They have all the classics, which can be made iced for free — a bonus in the hot Texas summer. Try the Local Oat as the weather warms up. This shaken iced coffee with local honey and oat milk is a nice cool-down with a caffeine kick.
Enjoy a quiet espresso, European-style — sitting down and chatting with a friend. This marble-laden spot on Greenville is a beautiful place to perk up your morning. And if you’d like to sit, eat, or stay awhile, customers have access to the porch of Sister next door.
Nick and Julia Rocha took JuJu’s from pop-ups in an Airstream to its first storefront in Lakewood. And they turned it into a classic, minimalist coffee shop that nails the East Dallas vibe. Try a cup brewed with beans from Eiland Coffee Roasters out of Richardson and Coffee del Rey from Plano.
Now boasting multiple outposts across the Metroplex, Ascension is a popular haunt for both coffee and wine. Order something from their extensive menu of lattes — golden milk and shroom are especially notable offerings.
Fiction’s location in the Continental Gin Building quickly became a go-to spot for the work from home crowd, largely due to its connection to Common Desk. But it also serves a great cup of drip coffee, a juniper latte that must be tried, and breakfast bites. And there’s two hours of free parking in the generously sized lot around the building — a rarity in Deep Ellum.
Opening Bell Coffee
If live music and a strong cup of coffee is the combination that does it for you, this is the spot. This underground (literally, it’s in a basement) coffee shop has a ‘90s college hangout vibe that’s eclectic and maximalist. And all sorts of local singer/songwriters perform here.
Sandwich Hag & chimlanh Coffee Shop
Reyna Duong of Sandwich Hag and Jinny Cho of Detour Doughnuts in Frisco (very much worth the drive) teamed up to start chimlanh Coffee Shop, which runs at Sandwich Hag on weekends. It serves Vietnamese coffee (made with beans primarily sourced from Nguyen Coffee Supply), doughnuts, and a heavy dose of activism in support of community, women- and Black-owned businesses, and amplification of the rights of disabled people.
Hola Cafe Dallas
This extra small Oak Cliff coffee shop, owned by wife and husband duo Jeniffer Avilá and Daniel Hinojosa, is an intimate experience. So intimate that there are only two seats, with a few more added outside when the weather permits. With beans from Avilá’s native Honduras in the grinder, coffee lovers can expect a rich cup.
This to-go coffee shop offers some delectable options, including a Honeycomb Crumble (honey vanilla latte), the Oat Cliff (espresso and Minor Figures oat milk), and Ginger Tonic (ginger beer, espresso, and simple syrup).
