Cartel Coffee

Cartel is the quintessential coffee house - latte foam art, exposed light bulbs, and cozy corner couches. Let the soothing whir of espresso machines fill your ears as you jam to low-fi beats and zip through work.

Did I mention their wall of hanging bicycle wheels - It's a local favorite!

Cafetal Coffee

Passing by Cafetal without getting coffee is like a New Years Resolution: you say you're going to do it, but don't actually. And with good reason. When fresh coffee fills the air, it's hard to resist picking up a latte (or 3) for the day.

Insider secret: Try their Avocado Arepa: homemade avocado spread, over easy eggs, and fresh cotija cheese - yes, please!

Infusion Coffee and Tea

Calling all tea and coffee lovers!

Looking for a new hobby? Try out coffee and tea brewing. Infusion offers barista classes, loose tea leafs, coffee beans, and brewing supplies so you can brew the perfect cup from the comfort of your home.

And hey, you can always sit back, enjoy the coffeeshop, and leave the brewing to the professionals (we do, and we love it!).

With fall rolling in, there's nothing cozier than their Autumn Spice tea!

King Coffee
