    Tried a guest espresso tonic. If you like tonic water, then this is a winner!

    They have great combination of coffee and food. You can come for a cup of late and have a very nice lunch or breakfast. ☕️ Parking. There is valet parking or self parking behind-ish the building.

    French toast. It was some of the best I've ever had. And the vanilla latte was so good.

    Unarguably the best coffee in Dallas. And it's located in the Design District, one of the city's more overlooked areas. Phenomenal staff who really know what they're doing!

    Nice little coffee shop. It has great coffee and service. Outdoor seating and it's has its own parking. Simple organic food in the morning and turns into a wine bar at night. Off the highway.

    Hands down, THE BEST lavender latte I've ever had. I've had them all over the U.S. and Ascension wins. The meat and cheese board is delicious too.

    Try the iced cortado - espresso, milk and a touch of simple syrup shaken and served on ice. Delightful pick-me-up. The avocado toast is a hit here, too.

    On the plus side: best coffee in Dallas. On the minus: they went all rogue to be a unique snowflake and their sizes are not standard. So a medium is small and a "shot" is actually 2 shots.
