Affogato Anyone?

Epic Gelato brings a taste of Italy to Flower Mound, TX. Partnering with Eiland Coffee, who supplies coffee from around the world, Epic Gelato is the perfect place to try something new. Treat yourself to a gelato cake or an affogato, which is espresso combined with a scoop of gelato. The flavors are mouthwatering including Belgian Chocolate, Mascarpone Cherry, Peanut Butter Crunch and Vanilla Rose. Pastries and smoothies are also on the menu.  “Take a minute for yourself” as Epic Gelato would say and stop in for a treat!

Go Local!

Local Coffee in San Antonio started because the city needed an “obsessively good coffee shop.” Now, Local Coffee has expanded to six locations in San Antonio, with another in Austin, plus their own roasting facility, Merit Roasting Co.

To keep you cool, caffeinated, and fed this summer, we recommend the smooth Nitro Cold Brew paired with a pop tart brought in from Bakery Lorraine. It’s sure to hit the spot!

Cats, Coffee, Cartoons, OH MY!

New to Downtown Houston, El Gato Coffeehouse is Houston’s first “cat café”. Partnered with local no-kill animal shelter, Friends for Life, El Gato provides a comfortable, social environment for adoptable cats while also providing food and beverage options to those who visit this unique Houston hangout.

Not only can you eat local, tasty treats and play with the furry felines, but you can also watch “Caturday” morning cartoons, relax with yoga and cats, catch a Friday “Meowvie” night, and have a crafternoon making art and cat toys. If you are not a cat person, there is plenty of outdoor seating on their large patio where you can still enjoy your freshly made coffee and plentiful food options from local food trucks on property.

Whether you are looking to adopt your next furrever friend or just grab a cup of joe, you are helping to support a great cause all while having a good time doing something different. For more information on El Gato, upcoming events, and adoption options, visit their website at elgatocoffeehouse.com.

I’m a Slowpoke.

Sales staff cannot live at anything less than the speed of light, but occasionally there is a need to slow down.  Alpha’s Jeff Wilt and Sean Bowman have been known to break bread at Slowpokes, and it is a real treat as “locally sourced” is a keystone of the establishment. The coffee is wonderful as well – fresh, strong, and sufficient caffeine to get both of them up to warp speed again.
