A Guide to Tyler Coffee Shops
Near and dear to the heart of downtown, The Foundry is a beloved hallmark among Tyler coffee shops, by way of its industrial yet modern atmosphere, expansive interior, artwork-adorned walls, touches of greenery, and abundant seating arrangements. The friendly folks here serve locally roasted Porch Culture coffee and feature a well-curated selection of other premier roasters from around the country on a rotating basis.
While a better environment for productivity would be difficult to imagine, aside from optimum functionality, the attention to detail that has gone into designing this cafe with a delightful balance of charm and utility makes it an easy go-to for daytime meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, or solo study sessions.
Since 1996, Brady’s has been one of the most profoundly enjoyable coffee shops in Tyler, thanks in large part to its specialty coffees, high-quality teas ranging from black to green to herbal, and intellectually-stimulating ambiance accentuated by the owner’s love of art and theological poetry. A creative haven beating along to the tune of timeless classical music, the walls are fashioned with local artists’ masterpieces and the shelves are earnestly stocked with thought-provoking books.
The idea that started out as a renovated vintage trailer has since blossomed into a dreamy urban market with bright bohemian flair, ample comfy seating, cute potted plants, and trendy light fixtures overhead. Venturing beyond the realm of thoughtfully sourced, brewed, and crafted coffee, 1948 also serves cold-pressed juices made from only organic fruits and vegetables, smoothie bowls, paninis, vegan eats, gluten-free options, and more!
This adorable little abode on the outskirts of town offers guests fresh small-batch roasted coffee and the chance to bask in a wholesome setting where people can make connections, whether that’s with the barista, an old friend, a first date, or a business colleague. And rest assured, if you’re in need of a quick but quality java stop while traveling, Big Shot has an efficient drive-thru that’ll get you right back on the road and headed towards your final destination in no time!
Situated down at the end of an unassuming strip mall off Old Jacksonville Highway, Crema is a neat and relaxed hangout featuring minimalistic appeal, chic furnishings, and a little merch corner. The staff similarly maintains a tantalizing selection of light cafe bites (gluten-free and vegan options available) and delectable specialty coffee beverages like the Vanilla Sky Latte, an iced brown sugar vanilla latte made with Butterfly Pea Powder and topped with a vanilla sweet cream cold foam. For those so curious, Butterfly Pea Powder is made from flowers and is jam-packed full of health-promoting antioxidants, flavonoids, and peptides – which are believed to have benefits for your skin, muscles, and maybe even weight too.
Backed up against Legacy Trail – a scenic walking path situated on the Old Cotton Belt train route that was instrumental in the growth of East Texas – The Coco Bean is a convenient one-stop shop boasting boutique retail goods, a cafe, and bike rentals amidst an aesthetically gifted setting rich with nautical tones, picturesque decor, and craft coffee.
