You probs didn't notice, but I've been MIA on thesnobbyfoodie.com. Sorry about that. Recently, I felt obligated to write articles that I didn't necessarily WANT to write. It felt disingenuous & took away from the fun and enthusiasm I had for TSF. Looking back on my Hip TX Eats post, I realized that I lost the passion I started with.
I learned a few things about food blogging that didn't sit right with me. So I took some time to revisit WHY I started TSF - to talk about actually good food: no marketing, no trends, no BS.
Anyways, you probably didn't care to hear my rant. Here's my coffee exploration journey from my city: Dallas, TX.
The D has surprisingly fantastic coffee. The hipsters have taken over & I LOVE IT. Here's an overview of some of my favorites.
Quick Coffee: Ascension Coffee
This coffee shop is located in a hotel & - bro- the hotel is beautiful. The coffee shop is quaint and unassuming. The coffee is good, but the venue is alright.
Comfortable Venue: Method Coffee
The venue is comfortable for students & afternoon chat with a friend. Their flourless chocolate torte is decadent (exactly how I like it).
When I went to the best coffee shop in Dallas. I knew. I KNEW there wouldn't be any other coffee shop that could compete. It had the ambiance, the good people, & the good coffee. The fantastic pastries were a bonus. I felt it in my soul- do I sound crazy?
The Best EVERYTHING: Davis Street Espresso
This place is- I can't even. It is a beauty.
If you want it all, go to Davis St. Espresso. They use Oak Cliff Roasters beans & don't have the attitude of a hipster coffee shop. 5 out of 5... & I rarely say that.
I've explored quite a few coffee shops, but I haven't seen them all. Let me know if you have suggestions for where I should go next!
