Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

Ascension Coffee

Copy Link
This bright and airy Design District spot is taking coffee to new heights with a variety of precise brewing methods. The slow-drip cold brew is not for the faint of heart.

Avoca Coffee

Copy Link
You won't find trendy fare like pumpkin spice lattes at this Magnolia Avenue coffee shop, but you will find single-origin, house-roasted beans, great pour-over and espresso drinks, plus a selection of Dude, Sweet Chocolate.

Brewed Coffee Pub

Copy Link
This trendy new Fort Worth spot features beans by Cuvee and Avoca, and all your traditional coffee drinks plus some unique creations like the Thai-licious with sweetened condensed milk, and milk served over coffee ice cubes. (There's also beer, wine, and a full food menu with everything from burgers to goat cheese queso.)

Crooked Tree Coffeehouse

Copy Link
Crooked Tree Coffeehouse is just that -- a charming little house that just happens to serve great coffee from Oak Cliff Roasters. Grab a cold-brew and a cookie from Empire Bakery and settle in to one of the oversized armchairs.

Cultivar Coffee & Tea Co.

Copy Link
This coffee shop shares a location with Good 2 Go Taco, making it the perfect lazy Sunday destination to grab a perfectly brewed cortado or cup of pour-over and some breakfast tacos. (Bonus: They roast their own beans.)

Drip Coffee

Copy Link
This sleek, modern Highland Park coffee house roasts their own beans in-house (it's also the coffee of choice brewed at Fearing's).

Espumoso Caffe

Copy Link
Caffeine junkies with a sweet tooth will find plenty to like at this cute Bishop Arts cafe -- try a mocha, affogato, or an Espumoso Frappe with Bailey's ice cream.

Mudsmith

Copy Link
Brooke Humphries (Barcadia, Acme F&B) is shaking up Lower Greenville with this ultra-hip new coffee house. Even non-caffeine junkies will find something to like here: cheese plates by Scardello, Dude Sweet Chocolate, and kombucha on tap, plus wine and beer.

Murray Street Coffee Shop

Copy Link
A favorite of Deep Ellum residents, this laid-back spot offers a basic lineup of coffee drinks (sorry, no frozen blended hazelnut mochaccino business here) and great breakfast sandwiches (try the Blinker).

Oak Lawn Coffee

Copy Link
Formerly Urban Dog Coffee, this Oak Lawn coffee house offers some of the city's finest iced coffee. Bonus: fast wi-fi and killer strawberry muffins.

Oddfellows

Copy Link
The food (and service) at Oddfellows can be hit-or-miss these days, but the coffee is consistently great, whether you opt for a French press or an espresso drink drawn from the rare La Marzocco Strada machine.

Origin Natural Food

Copy Link
This newish spot on McKinney Avenue boasts beans by Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters and a green La Marzocco espresso machine, plus a variety of brewing methods including French press and Chemex; there's also take-out Paleo meals available, if you're into that.

The Pearl Cup

Copy Link
Arguably Dallas' most beloved indie coffee house, The Pearl Cup is a Henderson Avenue hipster haven serving up those legendary Pearl Lattes.

The Pearl Cup Richardson

Copy Link
Suburbanites are thrilled to have their very own outpost of The Pearl Cup, with all the charm of the OG Henderson location plus a great patio.
