Your favorite community of Lake Highlands apartments is starting a blog series! We’re here to tell residents about everything Lake Highlands has to offer, as well as share some insights on apartment living, home decor and everything else you need to know to make the most of your time at The Lookout. We’ll be posting two blogs per month from here on out, so please be sure to check back often so you can learn a little more from each post!
For our first blog, we’re going to share recommendations on the best cafes near your Lake Highlands home. Check out the post below, and be sure to share this link with your friends and neighbors at The Lookout — the apartments Lake Highlands residents choose for luxury living.
The first spot on our list might be the coolest looking coffee shop in the Lake Highlands area. The menu is extensive, featuring everything from hot coffee signature drinks to iced drinks and fruit smoothies. If you can’t find a drink you love here, you might just not like coffee. White Rock Coffee is located in a building that looks like a cabin in the middle of the woods. It’s got high ceilings, eclectic decor and Texas flags everywhere you look. What more could you want?
When it comes to coffee shops near Lake Highlands, they don’t get much trendier than Houndstooth. Our favorite thing about Houndstooth has to be the adorable mugs, which feature a little Texas outline. The portions are little small, but the coffee itself is top-of-the-line. We’re not sure what they put in the water at Houndstooth, but every employee is happy, helpful and friendly.
As for the drinks themselves, we recommend the cold brew, the super rich chocolate latte and the cinnamon syrup cappuccino. This is the kind of coffee shop that serves coffee with designs in the foam, so get ready to take a whole lot of pics for Instagram. Oh, and be sure to try some of the pastries at Houndstooth! They’re huge, and they’re made fresh daily.
The last spot on our list is attached to Half Priced Books, which means you can buy your novel and immediately start reading it with an ice cold coffee in-hand. The main reason we love Black Forest Coffee because is because it’s super affordable; just $2 for a double espresso and $10 for a coffee, sandwich and dessert.
As for the ambiance, Black Forest is cozy and comfortable. There’s wood everywhere you look, fresh baked goods on the counter, and plenty of seating. They’ve got puzzles that you can work on if you need to kill some time, and we’ve heard nothing but good things about the dessert pastries. It’s hard to find anything bad to say about Black Forest, so check it out next time you’re in the area!
We’re all out of coffee shop suggestions for this week! We hope you enjoyed our first ever blog post, and we appreciate you taking the time out of your day to read it! If you get the chance to check out some of these coffee shops in the near future, be sure to snap some pics of your experience and share them with us on social media.
