Okay first off, I love Deep Ellum. I’d live here if I could. It’s full of hipsters, great coffee, and an awesome music scene. Plus, there’s an amazing pizza place here that I’m obsessed with. It may or may not be where my mom and I had an amazing heart to heart when I first moved to Dallas and that may be a large part of why I love it. But that’s another story for a later day.
Anyway, I’ve been trying to find this place here in Deep Ellum for a while but my GPS kept getting turned around and I basically made myself try & find it today. And I’m so glad I did. It’s attached to an art gallery that looks adorable and it has some awesome graffiti/street art out front on the main wall. And the seating is a hodgepodge of comfort meets industrial meets some weird hipster ahead of the curve. I’m pretty sure one of the baristas may be stoned. Or at least has a face that’s stuck like that — sorry, that was rude.
But I got a lavender latte with almond milk because #treatyourself and I honestly can’t remember the last time I had a latte. So goals I guess. It’s funny how your taste buds change after you haven’t had something for a while. This latte is great but definitely wish it had some sort of latte art. Am I the only one who goes into a hipster coffee shop, expecting latte art, and is a little sad when it isn’t there? Totally get that it takes practice and more effort but c’mon, hipsters. Maybe this is an ironic trend I haven’t caught onto yet. But whatever.
Anyway, this place is adorable. I’m going to try their drip coffee next to see if it measures up to my standards or if I need to make a run somewhere first — if you catch my drift. I love how Mokah is off the beaten path here in Deep Ellum yet close enough to all the restaurants and people watching. It’s fantastic — I’ll definitely be back.
I still can’t believe it’s taken me so long to try this place. I’m still blaming my GPS.
