Here’s where locals go to satisfy their caffeine fix
As you’re exploring the Dallas-Fort Worth suburbs, you’ll no doubt need a cup of coffee (or two…). We’ve got you covered with this roundup of go-to coffee shops and cafes throughout the suburbs. And — bonus — these are great spots to people watch, and get a sense of what life’s really like in these popular towns.
#1. Lewisville: The Perc Coffeehouse
Lewisville is a favorite for active residents who love spending free time on the lake or trails. With more than 3,000 acres of public outdoor space, there’s always something to do.
Downtown is a hub of activity, between the Lewisville Grand Theater and excellent local eateries like Old House BBQ. For coffee, The Perc Coffeehouse is the top choice. This community staple serves a selection of drinks made with Relic Roasters coffee plus pastries and light fare. On the weekends, you can sometimes catch local musicians performing at the coffee shop.
#2. Grapevine: RE:defined Coffee House
Just 20 miles outside of Dallas, Grapevine is a popular choice with commuters. Plus, it’s just minutes away from the DFW airport, which is especially convenient if you travel for work (or fun!). There’s also always something going on in Grapevine, from GrapeFest to Christmas celebrations to staycations at Great Wolf Lodge and more.
Grapevine is also known for its charming downtown filled with restored historic buildings. Before wandering along Main Street, grab some coffee at one of the best spots in town, RE:defined Coffee House. It’s a huge, modern space that’s perfect for working but the handcrafted drinks are also great on the go.
#3. Plano: Mudleaf Coffee
Plano is perfect for people looking to strike an urban/suburban balance. Here you’ll find tons of attractions, like the Crayola Experience and Heritage Farmstead Museum. Plus there are multiple parks for hikes and restaurants to satisfy every taste, from BBQ to burgers and pizza.
For coffee, Mudleaf can’t be missed. It’s an inviting space with couches, plants, huge windows and, not to mention, excellent coffee and pastries. Plus it’s located next to a bunch of other retail options in Independence Square, so it’s no surprise it’s a favorite with locals in need of a midday pick-me-up.
#4. Frisco: Summer Moon Coffee
People are drawn to Frisco for its good schools and lakefront access. With some big-city amenities, like Toyota Stadium, right in town, you get the best of both worlds. There’s always something to do but you’ll also still get to enjoy a calmer pace of life.
Frisco’s Main Street is lined with tons of great shops and restaurants, like the locally-owned Eight 11 wine bar and Simply Thai Bistro. Here you’ll also find Summer Moon Coffee, a popular cafe you may recognize if you’ve visited Austin. No matter what you order, make sure to try their signature Moon Milk (the Summer Moon Latte is hard to beat).
#5. Carrollton: Parks Coffee Roastery & Cafe
Carrollton attracts city dwellers who still want to be close to Dallas but are looking for a bit more space. With good schools, tons of parks and lots of community activities, it’s a great spot for young families.
And you won’t have to worry about where to get your morning brew. Carrollton is home to a few top-notch cafes including (our favorite) Parks Coffee. Stop in for an espresso drink and pastry or take the roastery tour to learn how they roast and package beans on site.
