When I first moved to Houston I was in search of a decent coffee.
In Australia, there was a great coffee culture and you didn’t have to travel too far for a delicious flat white.
I admit, I was sounding like a coffee snob when I moved here. Too milky, not hot enough, no flavour.
Below are some of the best coffees that I have found here (not a Starbucks in sight).
Antidote Coffee is located in a small strip shop off Studewood in the urban historic suburb of the Heights. It has counter service and you can purchase a small snack. The cafe is predominately filled with people on their laptops but has a very casual feel.
You can purchase a small latte for $2.25. I find that whilst it is not very strong, it is a great price and the coffee has a good flavour.
This coffee shop is where people who love coffee go and is located on Washington Ave.
Catalina is often voted Houston’s best coffee shop, and I can see why. The coffees are flavoursome, inexpensive and the service is great. The also sell coffee beans.
What my husband likes here is that they will make you up a flat white (and they know what it actually is).
The small latte here cost $3.50 and has a stronger flavor.
I really like this coffee shop, and it continually does well with reviewers and has a great vibe. It has been around for years and has a retro diner feel.
Positioned on Montrose Ave, this no frills coffee shop attracts people from many surrounding suburbs.
The small latte here cost $3.09 and has a nice strong flavour.

When I had a trip back to Australia, I realised that nothing really compared to the coffee shops back home, but I also realised that I didn’t have to pay $5 for a latte either.
We would love to know what your favourite coffee shop is in Houston, as everyone is constantly on the look-out for one.
