I'll admit they make a damn fine cup of coffee-drink, but well-suited for working? Only if your work doesn't involve the modern day conveniences of wi-fi and electricity.
Best Coffeehouse Houston 2012 - Catalina Coffee
Owner and coffee roaster Max Gonzales has made sure that Catalina stays at the top of its game by keeping its baristas well-trained, its coffee selection well-curated and its cortados well-made, every single time. There is no such thing as a bad cup of coffee here, whether it's a flat white or an espresso, and the pastries in the small case from Angela's Oven are reliably good as well. The zen-like, no-frills atmosphere is well-suited to working, reading or just relaxing — leave catching up with your loud friends for the wraparound patio outside.
