A Guide to Frisco Coffee Shops
Summer Moon Coffee
Snuggled amidst a strip of shops on Main Street, Summer Moon is an aesthetic standout among Frisco coffee shops, by way of its bright bohemian ambiance, warm earthy tones set against exposed brick walls, homestead style furnishings, subtle light bulbs hanging from above, wooden floorboards, and elegant paneled ceiling. The attention to detail that has gone into designing this cafe with a perfect balance of charm and utility makes it an easy go-to for daytime meetings with colleagues, long overdue coffee dates, or solo work sessions.
A spark of Texas pioneer spirit led to the wood-fired coffee at Summer Moon. Having burst onto the scene from their hometown of Austin, this brand, perhaps cherished most for its unique approach to small, hand-roasted batches of the finest beans over seasoned oak, has spread like wildfire throughout the Lonestar state. Rather than basic cream, ask for Moon Milk – a sweet, creamy milk made with seven secret ingredients – with your latte.
Renew Coffee and Bakery
Nestled at the base of a brick building just a stone’s throw distance from the National Soccer Hall of Fame, Renew is a cozy respite known for having vibrant plants, ample plush and comfortable seating, trendy light fixtures, bright blue neon signage, and all the necessary amenities associated with a productive cafe day (ie. WiFi, charging outlets, chill atmosphere). They brew Intelligentsia coffee as well as offer a diverse assortment of tantalizing beverages such as cold brew tonics, organic loose leaf teas, fresh fruit teas, and smoothies.
The first Karmic Grounds in the Echelon at the Summit treats visitors to a sophisticated space that seamlessly serves as a haven for students, freelancers, and creatives who seek an exceptional environment to learn, work, and create from. They offer specialty coffee made with diligently sourced ingredients, an extensive loose leaf tea selection, as well as local craft beer and wine to help you unwind come days end. On another note, Karmic Grounds hosts a number of community-building events like trivia and book clubs.
Located in The Star District – part of the 91-acre campus of the Dallas Cowboys World Headquarters and practice facility – Ascension procures an elevated dining experience complete with specialty, slow-roasted coffee, a well-curated wine list, and what’s been dubbed the “Best Brunch in DFW!”
The cafe’s menu boasts simple ingredients and innovative flavors, moreover, everything is made in-house (down to the salad dressings and sauces) and baked daily so your taste buds will ascend to new heights.
Kona Reserve Coffee
Kona coffee trees thrive on the rich volcanic soil and humid climate of Hawaii’s big island, it’s the one-of-a-kind tropical ecosystem there that produces java beans savored by coffee connoisseurs the world over. In a nod to the spirit and flavor of Hawaii, the team here proudly serves intimately sourced, 100% pure Kona coffee amidst relaxing vibes and pacific-inspired decor.
Don’t miss out on other delicious menu items either, the Aloha Breakfast sandwiches, spam musubi’s, fruit smoothies, teas, and flavorful gelato all have us feeling as if a beachside tropical oasis isn’t really so far away after all.
Coley’s Craft Coffee
Housed within a brick-wrapped, stone-accented building, Coley’s is an authentic coffee house experience complete with two stories worth of space, friendly service, and warm eclectic feels. Aside from unique espresso-based drinks, they also serve teas, matcha, and cold-press juices, along with waffles, breakfast sandwiches, paninis, and a large variety of baked goods such as croissants, pies, and cookies.
Lemma Coffee Co.
Situated near Toyota Stadium and an undeniably adorable gem among Frisco coffee shops, Lemma is a locally owned and operated specialty coffee company offering guests a light-filled, airy atmosphere accentuated by warm tones, light wooden furnishings, a cactus wall mural, framed artworks, and cute potted plants. Needless to say, a perfect spot for coffee dates with loved ones or carving out a tranquil break in your day.
The Nest Cafe
The concept of the Nest Cafe is building a home – or nest – where community members enjoy quality food, java, and service amidst an open and modern setting speckled with plenty of tabletops. In addition to espresso-infused beverages, they offer drip coffee, pourover coffee, cold brew coffee, hot chocolate, London fog, chai latte, and cafe au lait as well as breakfast options ranging from tasty toasts to paninis to acai bowls to waffles, pancakes, and french toasts.
The Aussie Grind
The Aussie Grind is not only one of the best coffee shops in Frisco, but its also recently been recognized by Yelp as one of the Top 30 Places to Eat in the country! So rest assured, that 5-star Yelp rating with 600+ reviews is well earned, and considering the already locally beloved owners only moved to Texas from Australia several years ago, it’s safe to say their American dream is off to a pretty phenomenal start!
As you parse through their selection of specialty coffee, fresh juices, smoothies, craft cocktails, and other tempting forms of booze, don’t hesitate to pair your choice beverage with a menu that is equally lively, innovative, boisterous, and full-flavored.
A cute family-run cafe established in the fall of 2019, Daily Grounds’ motto, “Keep Grinding!” embodies the preserving spirit of their Hall Park community and surrounding neighborhoods.
Whilst the coffee is locally sourced, one example of Daily Grounds’ admirable dedication to culinary excellence is its signature croissant, which gets laminated, proofed, and freshly baked in-house each morning – they also put together a fantastic breakfast sausage sandwich that’s handcrafted with housemade chicken sausage and their very own black sesame brioche. You may come for the java, but you will certainly stay for the food!
American Coffee & Tea Company
Near and dear to the heart of Frisco, American Coffee & Tea Company proudly serves veteran-owned coffee and tea, made by Americans for Americans. They believe your coffee should be as strong as your country (that goes for tea, too) and brew a cup that’s bold, just like the veterans that have fought for all of our freedoms for over two centuries.
85oC Bakery Cafe
Conveniently situated near the intersection of the Sam Rayburn and Dallas North Tollways, 85oC Bakery specializes in fresh bread baked every hour, the store has over 60 different varieties of breads inspired by European, Asian and Danish trades. When it comes to your morning fix, rest assured that every coffee is made with freshly ground espresso beans and shots are brewed to a perfect symphony.
The founder of this popular, ever-growing business, Mr. Cheng-Hsueh Wu visited a cafe in a 5-star hotel back in 2003 and while treating himself to some gourmet pastries and drinks, he realized that the prices were set way too high for people to enjoy on a whim. From that moment, Mr. Wu has envisioned a shop that provides premium coffee, bread, and cake at affordable prices.
