Knox Henderson Neighborhood & Sylvan Thirty. Stylish, hip ambience. Work and congregate.

One of our go-to spots for getting work knocked out, Houndstooth has two locations in Dallas where you can tuck away while sampling from the extensive caffeinated offerings. Houndstooth is “the pattern of coffee and people.” Their expert baristas can craft whatever you desire and lead you to your coffee zen. We think you’ll dig the simple, modern elegance that makes Houndstooth special.

The Wild Detectives

Bishop Arts District Neighborhood. Homey & cozy. Bookstore/coffee shop. WWW: Weekends Without Wifi.

From Friday at 5 PM till Monday morning you won’t find a Wi-Fi connection at TWD. Nothing but sweet serenity, conversation, books, and of course, coffee. The Wild Detectives is a cozy spot you’ll liken to your living room. Bring a book, grab a drink, and come meet someone new.

Bolsa Mercado

Bishop Arts District Neighborhood. Vintage furniture. Fresh-daily artisan bakery offerings.

Bolsa Mercado has a bit of everything for the Bishop Arts District visitor. A snack, a drink, or a full-on meal, Bolsa Mercado is a key gathering spot in the neighborhood. Vintage couches to kick back on, tables to meet around, and the aroma of fresh coffee wafting through the large, open shop. We enjoy working from here every bit as much as meeting a friend. We think you’ll love it too.
