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...

Cool place to hangout with your friends or chill by yourself! Agora is a coffee/wine bar with an awesome Greek-themed interior. In addition to coffee and wine, the bar also sells various goods including European chocolates that you can't find in regular markets. Unfortunately, I cannot give this place a higher rating. The mocha latte I had was awfully bland... More

This is a great place to relax, study, and hang out. There's two floors, plus the large patio area, so matter how crowed it gets, you will always find somewhere to sit, good luck if you want to sit on the couch up stairs near the T.V. though. They have unlimited coffee (blue cup), for about for bucks, and a... More

I discovered this place recently. Until recently, the only place that came to my mind for the midnight coffee used to be the Post Oak Starbucks which is open till 2 AM weekdays. The first thing one notices about the cafe is the gorgeous exterior and interior decor. Coffee was good. I tried the espresso drink. They have a large... More

Get there early if you want a good seat and are in for the long haul. The coffee is good and people nice- parking can be bad.

One of my favorite places to hang in Houston. I love the layout of the house, the coffee and beer they serve. A service with a smile. Love the casualness of the place. I always take out-of-towners here! Definitely a recommendation for everyone!

I rarely feel at home as much as I do at Agora. The great coffee variety, the assortment of seating nooks and corner couches, the dark woods of an olde English pub, and the eclectic clientele all make it a very special place. The food is a little spare (pastries and some fruit), but c'mon, it's a coffee shop. And... More

I love Agora relaxed atmosphere. An the coffee is great too! They also have a wide variety of beer and the most awesome thing is the fresh flowers they have around the place!!! This is one of my favorite spots.
