Best Unexpectedly Real Coffeehouse

Velveteen Coffee House

You might not expect to find a real coffeehouse in a food trailer, but thoughtful owners Uri and Esther Ondras make you feel right at home. In addition to using Texas Coffee Traders organic fair trade to brew their brew, the Ondras chat you up and stock board games and offer specials like Toddler Tuesdays (kids get free hot cocoa, 9-11am) to make you feel comfy and cuddly. You can grab 'n' go, but we recommend sticking around, as the Velveteen is more of a sit-down-and-stay-a-while kinda place. And once a coffeehouse becomes real, it can't become unreal again. It lasts for always.
