    Great atmosphere with cute outdoor seating and upstairs for some quiet time. Wifi a bit spotty.

    Sooooo, we've visited Agora 5 times now. We've experienced rudeness from staff 4 out of our 5 visits. It's unfortunate because we liked the place.

    This is a great place to chill with friends over a cup of coffee or tea. Late nights can get loud but I always see people studying/working as well.

    Great atmosphere to come with friends and chat, bad place to come and read or have some quiet time.

    Double cappuccino with 1.5 pumps vanilla = perfection. The jalapeño cheddar croissant is great as well. =)

    Great place to get work done. Eggnog latte is indulgent and amazing. Love the short bread cookies they serve with each drink.

    Awesome place to study. Lighting isn't so great but it's got a great atmosphere, plenty of seating, nice music, good bar and coffee options. Very eclectic. Reminds me of Austin :)

    Great place to hangout, study, read, coffee is good, but the most of the staff are not very friendly. They aren't mean, they just aren't nice. I blame bad management.

    The service member was very nice, energetic and help me with my order as best she could. I was very impressed . By the way white mocha is one of the best :)

    A top geeky pick from Team Lead Nicole. She says, "This place has good vibes. Music, Greek coffee, and a bar."

    Great place to spend an afternoon catching up with old friends or studying for exams. The eclectic interior welcomes, but the best seat in the house is outside on the 2nd story balcony. Amazing view!

    Not sure if there is anything that I don't love at this place! I love the sangria, the hot teas, the smoothies, the beer. Whatever I'm in the mood for, they've got it. Plus Wednesday belly dancing :)

    Agora is one of a kind! The owner and management are very kind. Great atmosphere. Fantastic music choices in the juke box. Feet drinks and of course the famous frappe. And belly dancing on Wednesdays!

    Not just a coffee shop -- check out the selection of wine and the not-so-common beers.

    Aside from the usual lineup of caffeinated beverages, Agora stocks a generous variety of foreign, craft and obscure beers and wines. If you like sweets, try the granitas. Post-fire bonus... Read more

    I really enjoyed the soy chai latte. Really delicious, and the biscotto they give you with every cup is a nice touch.

    if you're new to the area - take a moment to mentally prepare yourself for the strange way that humans in houston seem to blatantly stare directly at each other ..in an eerie vacant kind of way.

    Don't get too tipsy upstairs. Walking down the steps (especially in heels) can be tricky. I don't care how cute you look, you won't with a broken neck.

    I love to come in the afternoon when it's not crowded and the service is quick. They make an excellent freddo cappuccino, a drink that's hard to find at most coffee shops.

    Looking for parking? Be prepared to park your vehicle off street. Don't worry because the little coffee gem is worth that extra effort!

    The place to be is upstairs if you're looking for some intimate quiet time - with or without a glass of wine.

    They're now open and looking better than ever after fire. Stairs aren't as steep anymore and there's more room to walk on the second level.

    My favorite coffee place. Great feel and atmosphere. Get iced soy chai latte. Belly dancing every Wed. at 10:30 p.m. BTW Agora means market.
