Very original and cool interior design - nice mix of greek and texas cultures. Pleasant outside seating. Tasty and homemade selection of coffees and milkshakes. Quite limited parking.

Agora's casual coffee atmosphere is great for studying, working or meeting up for a chat. It's heavy on personality and charming all around. I adore Agora!

The atmosphere and interior here are the perfect coffee/tea shop ambiance to me. The upper level has small tables to sit and read or people watch on Westheimer. Great pastries. The outdoor patio is really cozy too.

I had no expectations and the place is one of the best in Houston! Perfect place just to relax and hung out! I could come a pecan coffee addict! I found my place in Houston! 😋

Dropped in for coffee with my girlfriends after dinner. Frap was good and hung out upstairs chatting. The stairs inside are wicked steep so be careful. Lots of singles with laptops and small groups hanging out. Plus- smoking was outside Negative- walking through the smokers to get in or out of the front door.

I've been twice for coffee and really like the old world library vibe, relaxed patrons and think the coffee drinks are excellent. Has an upstairs area as well as seating on the first floor and patio.

This is hands down the best coffee shop I have been to in town. The atmosphere is really unique with the two levels. The coffee and alcohol choices are great and they have tasty pastries. The best part about it was the pecan cold brew. Please order it when you go. Delicious!

My opinion is a little different than reviews i scrolled through before rating, which were surprisingly negative. This is one of my favorite spots in Houston to just chill. I've been here morning, noon, and night mostly because I love their pecan cold brew coffee. It runs @$3.50 for a decent sized glass and $1.50 for every refill thereafter. I've... More
