A Guide to Garland Coffee Shops
Near and dear to the heart of downtown, Rosalind is an aesthetic standout among Garland coffee shops, by way of its bright bohemian atmosphere, warm earthy tones set against exposed brick walls, ample eclectic yet fitting furnishings, romantic light bulbs strung above, wooden floorboards, and occasional touch of greenery. Their java beans are diligently sourced from the world’s premier growing regions then roasted to perfection, and depending on the batch, offer subtle hints of flavors like blueberry, almond, and chocolate.
While a superior atmosphere for productivity would be difficult to imagine, aside from optimum functionality, the attention to detail that has gone into designing this cafe with a perfect balance of opulence, charm, and utility makes it an easy go-to for daytime meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, or solo work sessions. That’s not to mention the regularly scheduled live music events and well-curated selection of craft beers and fine wines.
Pink is a first among local cafes to place an instagrammable emphasis on customer experience, offering a photo op per every beautified corner – there’s the rose petal wrapped white carriage, floral, exposed brick, and textured walls, blue neon signage reading “But First, Coffee,” and creamy white accents to make each vibrant feature pop.
The picturesque decor serves as an accomplice to daringly innovative, rewardingly delicious coffee beverages made from java beans that have been intimately roasted on-site. Your sweet tooth will thank you for stopping in as well, Pink offers pastries, cakes, cookies, gelato, and so much more.
Awaken Coffee House
This non-profit gem among North Garland coffee shops is housed within Lavon Drive Baptist Church and exists primarily to support charity and make a difference on a global scale. They’re well on their way considering just a few months after opening in December 2020, the team here managed to provide over 20,000 meals to kids in need!
All proceeds support Deeply Rooted Grounds, an organization building feeding centers and homes for children in Nicaragua. When you support Awaken, you’re purchasing more than just a delicious, locally roasted, and high-quality beverage for yourself, you’re purchasing food security for a child in need.
The Vive Coffee
The Vive is a coffee shop, venue, and ministry of Livingway Church with the mission of bringing life and hope to the community and world. They serve exclusively Dallas-based HOPE Coffee, a Christian-owned company that exists to serve great coffee and to share the gospel through servant-evangelism projects in Honduras and Mexico.
Nestled and recently opened inside Springcreek Church is 1418, a humble java abode featuring specialty drinks such as a lavender and vanilla Purple Haze and white hot chocolate and cayenne pepper enriched Sgt. Pepper (kudos to those who understood the rock n’ roll references). They also maintain a tantalizing selection of sandwiches, pastries, soft drinks, and more grab-n-go items.
