I don’t know about you guys, but I am a sucker for coffee shops. Coffee has the smell of productivity in my mind, and I have written long, extensive essays in an hour or two just by sitting in a Starbucks. Lately, I have been really encouraged to explore the local shops and cafes around the Houston area. I want to support local businesses, and I feel like each little whole-in-the-wall place has unique abilities that cannot be duplicated.
So without further adieu, here is Cafeza!
Cafeza is a small coffee shop in Sixth Ward that also sells some wicked breakfast and lunch meals. The coffeshop doubles as a bar too if you’re into drinking in the early hours of the morning, haha. For me, the best coffee shops will have free Wi-Fi (am I right or am I right), an array of seating choices, big tables for productive work days, and tea. Since I am not really a coffee drinker, I tried the Strawberry White Tea and a warm buttery croissant. It was a great way to start my morning and it wasn’t only because I had buttery bread for breakfast! You get to see the steeping of the leaves as you sit at your table, and the staff gladly brings the tea to your table as you eat. It’s just a very friendly, home-y coffee shop to visit. Also, if you peek outside of the coffee shop and you will find a big chalkboard wall that people use to list the things they are grateful for! Go visit when you can!
