It's officially December, which means the holiday decorations are coming out, the malls are packed with Christmas shoppers, and for us Texans, the leaves are finally changing!
November was such a fun month. We got to spend some time with family for Thanksgiving and surprisingly, we got close to all of our shopping done already! To be honest, we did all of our shopping on Amazon this year because it is just so dang convenient. Now, we are ready to take on the last month of 2018 and finish out the year with a bang without the added stress of shopping for our family and friends. But if you are still shopping for friends, who may just happen to be coffee lovers like us, we decided it would be fun and appropriate (since afterall, this is our coffee shop series) to put together a little Coffee Lovers Shopping Guide on Amazon. Click here to take a look - you'll find some cute items inspired by the coffee shops we visited in December.
That said, some awesome content and project is schedule for December, and we are excited to share them with you all! (Hint: there might be a sneak peek in this month's coffee shop series.) Read along and find out!
BLUE DOOR COFFEE CO.
21 Waterway Ave Suite 110, The Woodlands, TX 77380
Plenty of tables and couches to suit all your coffee shop needs, including a couple tables outside
Beautiful interior decor! If that plant wall doesn't scream Insta-worthy, I don't know what does.
Excellent location in The Woodlands, very walkable to shopping and restaurants. (More to come on this later. *Wink*)
Offers vegan and gluten-free options, while locally sourcing the ingredients they use. However, please note that they do not have a separate kitchen to cook the gluten-free dishes, so if you're highly allergic make sure you're not getting the food!
As an "inside-looper", The Woodlands is quite the drive, but we happened to be in the area when we stopped to visit. If you ever are too, make sure to stop by for your coffee fix.
GIANT LEAP COFFEE
3302 Canal St, Houston, TX 77003
Connected to a shared coworking space
Serves Houston's Amaya Roasting Co. coffeebeans
Upgrade your drip coffee ($2.75) for 75 cents for free refills
Love the minimalist, hipster vibes
Small space with a few small tables and bar seating with wooden furniture... unfortunately it's not too comfy.
7925 Katy Fwy C, Houston, TX 77024
Very spacious, would be great for a work/study session
Loved the blueberry matcha latte!
Obsessed with the vintage coffee wall art, which you can find on Amazon here. This would make the perfect gift for your coffee-loving friends!
Chairs don't seem to be too comfortable for extended periods of time
Pretty pricey for what you're getting
As always, I'd love to hear your thoughts on these coffee shops as you make your way there this month! Happy December!
