Out-of-Towner: Annies Cafe

October 24, 2017

Only open for breakfast and lunch, Annies focuses on quality food and wonderful coffee drinks. Breakfast ends and lunch starts at 11. If you come in during that magical hour, […]

Out-of-Towner: Document Coffee

September 26, 2017

Honest Dallas is back from Los Angeles with new reviews. I have to thank LA for the hospitality and good times. Staying near Koreatown was great. Lots of wonderful food, culture, leisurely walks. Being the coffee fiend that I am, I had to try one of the coffee shops in the area. Document was said […]

Great Coffee with a Hint of Pretension

May 30, 2017

Originally from Austin, Houndstooth Coffee has become a staple in the Knox/Henderson location since opening 3 years ago. The stereotype that local coffee shops are filled with hipsters and uptight baristas isn’t always true. But when a coffee shops culture is that a “barista is a title that is earned” the stereotype is generally present. […]

Out-of-Towner: Chattahoochee Coffee Company

April 7, 2017

This is a special out-of-towner edition of Honest Dallas.  Since I’m going to be in a cabin this weekend and disconnecting, I’m sharing an out of town/state place worth visiting. Atlanta is similar to Dallas in a number of ways: 1. People in the outskirts and suburbs still say they are in Atlanta; 2. Traffic […]

Downtown Hidden Gem

April 4, 2017

Stupid Good Coffee is worth a visit if you can find it. Stupid Good Coffee isn’t new. It’s just hidden. Located inside of the Pacific Place building downtown on Elm, it’s tucked away on the second floor. There are signs once you get to the building but you have to be looking for them. The […]

Not Another Coffee Chain

March 8, 2017

A coffee chain to rival all the others from Minnesota. You read that right. Dunn Brothers started in the Midwest in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Started with the simple goal of making a great cup of coffee by roasting the beans in the store. Dunn Brothers made a name for themselves in the Twin Cities area […]

Astoria Caffe Wine Bar

March 6, 2017

Don’t judge a cafe/bar by its website. I know you’ll look them up. I promise a better experience than the website gives you. Astoria Caffe Wine Bar is in Addison Circle. And while the surrounding restaurants and bars cater to the majority demographic of Addison, Astoria stands alone. Astoria is your day-to-night hangout location. Cafe […]

The Right Method

April 14, 2015

Method Coffee is one of many coffee shops to have opened recently in Dallas. They are barely less than a year old.   Their secret weapon is the slayer espresso machine, the only one in Dallas coffee shops. (Though I doubt it’s in any home either with that price tag.) Method offers your standard coffee fare […]

Crooked Tree Coffeehouse

February 10, 2015

I recently visited Crooked Tree Coffeehouse for pre-dinner, evening coffee, because any time is a good time for coffee. Crooked Tree is one of the few coffee shops open past 5 pm. There are others such as Ascension and the Alcove but Crooked Tree doesn’t sell alcohol or meals. From the outside, Crooked Tree looks […]
