Coffee Shops & Tea Shops

Can anyone recommend good coffee shops (any place in the city)? I'm interested in independent ones and larger ones that have a nice "atmosphere."

Also, are there any tea shops here?

Well, as far as coffee goes the one shop that I went to was recently closed!

There is an amazing tea shop in Houston though. Go to The Path of Tea on West Alabama. This tranquel shop offers organic fair trade tea. You can purchase it loose leaf and they also make tons of drinks. The little snacks that they serve are wonderful and they are always trying to come up with new recipes to incorporate tea into the foods.

I just happened to come across this place a few months ago and I'm so glad that I did. I encourage you to visit!

There's Cafe Brasil at 2604 Dunlavy St (Cross Street: Westheimer Road). It's a really chill place w/ good drinks and food. They have bands play there throughout the week as well. It's also in a really funky area of Houston. Vintage shopping and gay area of town.

There is outside seating as well.

lots of coffee shops!

Our favorite is Croissant Brioche on Rice Blvd in Rice Village. We like it because it has a good supply of newspapers (NYT and WSJ), its location, cheap refills and a good place to hang out. Its brioches and croissants are excellent, too.

Go to Onion Creek on White Oak in The Heights. It is both a coffee shop and bar. It is always has a cool crowd from sunrise until 2:00 AM.
