Support Local Coffee Shops around Houston

Some days, we just need a delicious cup of coffee to help us work through the day. Not far from our apartments in Houston, you will find local coffee shops with unique histories and causes. Our favorites include:

A 2nd Cup 

Erica Raggett, the founder of A 2nd Cup, was inspired by her seventh-grade students to bring awareness and combat human trafficking. When you order takeout or delivery from the nonprofit coffee shop, 100% of your purchase supports their mission. Not only will you find lattes, macchiatos, and americanos, but they also provide various breakfast tacos, sandwiches, and pastries. Explore their menu and order from their website. 

El Gato Coffeehouse 

This purrfect coffee shop has it all. Coffee, tea, cinnamon rolls, and cats! At El Gato Coffeehouse you can support cat rescues by booking a reservation to dine-in with your group of six or less. There are no obligations to adopt, but you will enjoy a cat therapy session while sipping your drink of choice. Try their signature, Siamese coffee, Vietnamese coffee with cinnamon, or an Early Grey KiTea, an earl grey tea latte with honey and lavender. 


Inspired by Barcelona’s culture and cuisines, Cafeza offers both Spanish drinks and dishes. Expand your palate by trying the Picador, their signature vanilla and hazelnut latte infused with their own secret spice blend. Not only do they provide a variety of unique drinks, but they also offer various Spanish food items. Their menu includes fruit bowls, churros, empanadas, pastries, and fried plantains. Call for takeout or delivery today. 

At Melia Medical Center, we take pride in supporting our residents and community. Check out our blog for more local businesses you can support, including these Ethiopian restaurants. Contact us today to learn more about our apartments for rent in Houston.
