Lovely atmosphere

Being from a small city, I don't see a wide array of businesses. This coffee shop was awesome. A great atmosphere with a jukebox playing all kinds of music, a cozy nook type place I could see being great for a study or just to hangout with friends. The coffee, was average. I have had better.

This bar is one of my favourites in Houston, after being completely burnt down a couple of years ago, it is now completely rebuilt and probably better than it was before. A new patio has been added at the side and also increased parking where the old antique shop was. This bar / coffee shop is a nice quiet place... More

This is not your chain-coffee-house experience. An old building re-made into what it's name in Greek means: A meeting place. Eclectic crowd (if you can't deal with that, this isn't your place). Good coffee, a jukebox, and lots of people from all walks of life. On weekends, hard to find a spot. If you want silence, this is not for... More

Great atmosphere with large open space to meet up with friends for coffee, tea and dessert! It was a rainy, raw day in Houston when we visited Houston but Agora turned our moods around with delicious drinks and snacks. Can't forget the tunes playing from the juke box :)

My favorite place to hang out is on the second floor, just be careful on those steps! It's loud but after a while you get accustomed to the background noise and it becomes just that. It's dark and the atmosphere is laid back, something that I personally enjoy. I also personally thought that the drinks and snacks were a bit... More

The easiest and lay back place to meet up with friends over coffee. Been going to this place for years. Never disappointed

Great ambiance and good place to read a book and enjoy your coffee/tea. I do recommend to those who want to classify/arrange their thoughts.

Such a cute cafe in the middle of the city. The drinks and pastries were very delectable and the cafe had nice character.

Hipster central- blah. The house coffee was decent- a little weak for my taste. The setting was nice with couches, an upstairs and patio. Music was way to loud- i went to chill with friends over coffee not hang out in a crowded loud "bar" where you have to yell across the table. Parking was almost non-existent....we ended up parking...
