Best coffee shops in Downtown Houston

If you're a young professional searching for Houston real estate, and proximity to a great cup of coffee is a non-negotiable, rest assured that the city has plenty of hotspots for java lovers.

Count yourself lucky if your morning commute takes you past Greenway Coffee & Tea, formerly called Tuscany Premiere Coffee. Located in the Greenway Plaza, it's a local favorite for coffee and espresso. The cafe often partners up with other local restaurants, so true devotees can get their Greenway fix while dining out at other Houston eateries. 

Coffee lovers should also check out Catalina Coffee on Washington Avenue, though it's so popular you might have to stand in line. Catalina is considered one of the best coffee shops in Houston, and they often have live entertainment.

Another java fan-favorite may surprise you - it's El Rey Taqueria. In addition to tasty breakfast tacos, they make one of the best lattes in town. They boast five convenient locations througout the city, so if you're hungry for an authentic Mexican and Cuban breakfast, take a good look around and it's likely that there's an El Rey Taqueria nearby.

With all the coffee shops in Houston, you'll never have to worry about finding a place. You'll just have to decide which one is your favorite.
