Where to Get Your Caffeine Fix

The Top Ten Coffeehouses in Houston

2. Catalina Coffee

2201 Washington, 713-861-8448

This is the coffee shop that stepped up the game for all other coffeehouses in town. If Chris Shepherd is the godfather to all the young, edgy chefs in town, Max Gonzales is the godfather to those barista counterparts. His baristas, like the affable Brendan Moody and Adam Newton, are always eager to broaden customers' horizons and probably don't know the meaning of the word "snooty." The down side is that Catalina is often packed to the gills, but at least you know it's for a good reason: Every last latte, espresso, cortado and doppio here is wonderful.

1. Greenway Coffee (formerly

Tuscany Premium Coffee)

5 E. Greenway Plaza, 832-377-7773

Even back in 2009, Robb Walsh recognized the raw talent in David Buehrer and his little coffee shop in a nondescript Greenway Plaza office building. Buehrer and the shop have since become icons for all that's right and progressive when it comes to coffee in Houston. Known for collaborating with area restaurants, bars and chefs to come up with coffee cocktails or coffee pairings, Buehrer is all about spreading the gospel of good coffee, good beans and good roasts — not self-promotion. He's at his best when weaning the office dwellers in Greenway Plaza off their Starbucks and introducing them to locally roasted beans made into lattes with local milk from Way Back When Dairy, beanie-clad coffee geeks and suited-up businessmen bonding over a perfect cup of coffee. Yes, parking is a bear, but don't get too worked up over it: Greenway validates.

I couldn't agree more. Ms. Shilcutt, you are usually quite acute, but you have a serious blind spot as regards Inversion. I have rarely ever seen snottier, more charmless cretins masquerading as 'baristas', nor a more arsehole clientele; they utterly deserve each other, but no civilized human in her right mind would set foot in this temple to rudeness.

Inversion? Katherine, with all due respect, you have GOT to be kidding us. I'll let the Wi-Fi Hog elitist crap slide (which makes you snooty right on the surface & a lowlife or you're overt worship of Robb Walsh) & I'll go right to the core. First you might want to look at the ownership of these places before you write. You want to know why the attitude of Inversion's baristas is crap? Look at the management/owners, I've worked in the restaurant business & crap attitude in any shop will pretty much lead right at the door of management/ownership. Inversion's ownership conists of former Starbuck's execs who have long had a shit reputation for treating their staff badly. You might want to remember this is the coffee shop that had its staff quit em masse a few years ago when a popular manager was fired.

West Point Power helps its customers obtain the best possible price in their electrical power needs with the most favorable terms and conditions. We do not represent the electric companies, nor do we sell you power or are we tied to any particular electric supplier. We work with many of the Tier 1 Competitive Retail Electric Providers (REPs). Because of our longevity in business, our 110% belief in ethics and our strength with many large commercial accounts, we are able to obtain the best prices and terms to include offers of credit that otherwise might have been denied. Because of our strength and reputation, we often have the biggest and best REPS bidding for your business with rates/conditions that are not available to other brokers and certainly not the general public.

Most companies/residences are already on a fixed contract. Because it is our belief that we want to build a relationship and build upon that in order to provide you with the best possible prices and terms, we want to get to know each of you. That starts with knowing certain key pieces of information

-Your ESI/meter number – from your bill-Your address and email address-Who is your provider-When does your contract end-How much are you currently paying

We will monitor your account during the year and as your expiration date approaches; we will be in contact and help ensure that you get the best price and terms.Feel free to call me at any time with any questions you may have – there are lots of still unanswered questions out there. Our goal is quite simple

Thanks for the shout out to El Rey. LOVE their cappuccinos-- they manage to balance a lovely espresso with properly steamed and foamed milk, unlike some big chains that regularly serve me big expensive cups of ick. And you're right-- they think nothing of pouring a perfect cup. Have a cap with an order of flan and I'm in cheap food heaven.
