Houndstooth Coffee

This place is wicked adorable. It’s off the beaten path in a fun part of town and basically next door to a health food store called Sprouts. Score! Anyway, I had some trouble connecting to the wi-fi initially but that’s because I was inputting the wrong password. #blondemoment.

This place is precious. Their vanilla latte with 1% milk is close to perfection and their motto is “The Pattern of Coffee & People”. It’s a little hipstery but that’s the way I like my coffee shops. There’s even a dude with a man bun and hipster glasses standing in line. That’s how you know you’ve made it, I think, in the coffee shop industry. Plus, there’s a pokestop here for any of you PokemonGO players. Fair warning, it’s addictive and a great way to explore your neighbourhood and get outside. Just make sure you’re paying attention to your surroundings and don’t go anywhere you’re not comfortable!

Anyway, the staff is friendly without being too overbearing and seems to be pretty knowledgeable about their beans & tea that’re in stock. It’s got a pretty good vibe too with a mixture of wood, brick, and also chalkboard walls. I’ll definitely be coming back.

Finally, though this place is a little further from my apartment, it’s got a spark about it that doesn’t feel Texan at all. Well, maybe a little Austiny or San Antonio, but definitely not like Dallas. It’s fun, quirky, and has strong coffee. What more could a West Coast girl want in a coffee shop when she’s in the Lone Star state?
