This coffee shop is house next to Art League Houston in a building that, several years ago, was a giant, trippy art project. The Art Guys dismantled the wall facing the street and created a wooden vortex that led toward the back of the building, attracting all sorts of media attention and photo-takers. Now a shiny new building stands in its place, and on the coffee shop side, it's all about brewed drinks, pastries and a sleek, reasonably quiet place to study or hang out, right off Montrose. Prices are a bit steeper than Starbucks, but that's forgivable for an independent place. Free wi-fi is available -- the password is listed on your receipt.
