  • Archive for the ‘Local Coffee’ Category

    It’s been a long time since I have done a Local Coffee post, mostly because I rarely go anywhere that has a local coffee shop. There was a very neat one near Bandera, Texas that I should have done a post about but didn’t get around to it. Coffee shops are a favorite haunt of my friends and me. If we can find a coffee shop to hang out in and catch up for hours on end, we will. This one Coffee² in historic downtown McKinney, Texas is nearby my friend Stephanie’s house. The shopping area downtown is very active with many shops and the day we stopped in because it was incredibly warm for late March and we needed a reprieve.




    Iced Chai Latte
    I normally hate iced coffee drinks but I tried an iced chai latte and was pleasantly surprised! Definitely worth it!



    The shop was relatively quiet for a Saturday afternoon, but I imagine that mornings and weekdays that the shop might perk up.

    I really wish there were more local coffee shops around. As much as I love Starbucks it is nice to have a local shop to relax in.

    Yesterday we popped into Good Day Coffee & Books in downtown Kilgore after we were done taking photos of Kylen. We’d spotted it the other night after grabbing some local Mexican food and thought it’d be fun to check out. Michelle ordered a Vanilla Chai Latte but she doesn’t think it was a good as the coffee shop in Henderson. I ordered a White Chocolate Macchiato with soy which also had a hint of strawberry in it and I thought it was pretty awesome. This store also has books, mostly literary and popular fiction but also has a super sweet kids section as well, complete with mini-bean bags.









    I definitely loved this place and will hit it up when I come visit Michelle. Prices were reasonable and the coffee wasn’t too strong or bitter. If you are driving around East Texas and need some joe, stop on it and relax a bit!

    Mom told me about Roots Coffeehouse a few days ago so I went the other day while doing some errands. It is located in the North Richland Hills town center on Grapevine Highway across the northeast campus of Tarrant County College. They even have a blog Blog! If you read this Roots, you should update your blog and let us know what is going on!

    There were a lot of outside seating for those who wish to go out.

    For being an organic and fair trade oriented place I thought the prices were pretty good. I bought a cafe au lait with soy milk. I was also asked if I was a student, so there must be a discount for students. Drat, maybe I should go back to school?

    Lots of cozy places to sit and the tables were full of people studying, laptops open with their coffee mugs.


    I was excited to see that there was art for sale on the wall. I am curious on the process for getting art up, though.

    I want these doors!

    The back part of the store has a quieter feel and you could easily pretend you are tucked away in NYC.


    If you are local to NRH or the Mid Cities I’d give the shop a try. Loved the atmosphere and the coffee, not too strong.
