As an extravert freelancer who doesn’t have a “real” office, coffee shops are my best friend! I’ve found that I’m most productive in this atmosphere because I like to be surrounded by a lot of people, I’m not distracted by things that need to be done at home, and it’s always fun to run into friends and chat for a little brain break.

While in college (2012-2015) at Texas Wesleyan, Avoca and Brewed were really the only good coffee shop options for late night studying other than Starbucks. It has been so fun seeing so many incredible coffee shops open and thrive over the years.

Here’s a simple map that I’ve made to show you where my favorite coffee shops are! Keep on reading for all the details about what makes each one special.

 

PARIS COFFEE

While I don’t typically go here to work, I can’t leave out the OG Fort Worth coffee shop. Paris Coffee is a great place to go for an old school southern breakfast and lunch. They have been open since 1926 and are one of the oldest businesses on Magnolia Street.

CRAFTWORK

Craftwork is one of those coffeeshops that seems to just have exploded overnight. I remember going to the soft opening of the Camp Bowie location with my coworkers and am so happy that they’ve grown the way they have! Since we live so close to one of their locations, it’s definitely one of most visited Fort Worth coffee shops for us.

One of the things that makes Craftwork unique is that it doubles as a coworking space. For a monthly membership fee, you can have access to their coworking space in the back of their building along with other perks like drink discounts and special events.

AVOCA

Avoca has a special place in my heart since I spent manyyyyy late nights there in college. It is also where Noah and I had our engagement photos (pictured above – we were BABIES) taken by my friend Megan Waller. The Magnolia location is the original Avoca location and also where they roast all their coffee. This location is by far the busiest location that is also full of the most personality. If I need a quieter space but am still craving their coffee, I usually will go to their Foch location (note that the Foch location isn’t open as late).

SONS OF LIBERTY

One of my favorite things about this coffee shop is the sheer size! It can be challenging to find a place to sit at most coffee shops during busy hours but Sons of Liberty offers a wide range of sofas, community tables, bar seating, and more. They also have a wide selection of food options in case you need a little more than coffee.

BREWED

Brewed is always very nostalgic for me because it was the go-to place that I went with friends when I was in college and I also worked there as a hostess when I was still in school. Unfortunately Brewed has evolved to be more of a restaurant than a coffee shop hangout location, but it still is a great place to grab a drink during brunch!

DWELL (COMING SOON)

While I haven’t been to Dwell’s Fort Worth location (opening this fall), I have been to their Burleson location. My favorite thing about Dwell is their delicious homemade biscuits that pair PERFECTLY with your favorite coffee. Can’t wait for this new coffee shop to open by TCU!
