Coffee. [noun] a dark brown drink made from ground coffee beans and boiled water.

Thanks Merriam-Webster, for the oh, so thrilling description of our favorite beverage. Let’s try this again. In more colorful words from the self-proclaimed coffee connoisseurs on the Uber DFW team…

Coffee. [noun] the delicious, comforting drink made of ground coffee beans, served warm or cold but always with an alluring scent, puts extra pep in one’s step, gives one a good excuse to meet up with friends, and a great way to start one’s weekday (or any) morning.

We love coffee and frequent many shops around the metroplex. We’ve served up a list of a few of the many hidden gems around town to give you a little kick-start to your morning with a good ‘ol cup of joe.


Opening Bell

The trifecta of coffee, music, and stocks – Opening Bell has it all. Located in Downtown Dallas in the basement of the South Side on Lamar Lofts, this A-list coffee shop has an extensive selection of blended brews and delectable foods. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and there is even live music most nights.. Opening Bell is sure to please even the non-coffee lovers.



The Wild Detectives

In the heart of Oak Cliff, this hidden gem is truly a one-stop-shop. Go for your morning coffee, grab a nice read from their articulately crafted book shelves, order a sandwich for lunch, and soon enough it’ll be time for some evening libations and a cheese plate. Whether you’re meeting your crew for some laughs, or giving yourself some “me” time, The Wild Detectives welcomes you with open arms.
