Method: Caffeination and Fare

Woohoo! More coffee shops! Method Caffeination and Fare is a little off the beaten path on Ross Ave, but I think that’s what makes this place pretty cool. The venue is tiny, but cozy with an adorable outdoor patio and bar area for anyone who wants to grab a latte and chat. The front area is set up almost like a living room and there are smaller tables lined up against a wall.

Favorite Coffee: Cultivar Coffee

20140522-082746-30466585.jpgI have mad love for my favorite coffee shop Sip Stir Cafe, but Cultivar‘s beans are on a whole other level. I first tried their coffee at Origin Kitchen + Bar (blog post about their fantastic creme brulee french toast here. Holla!) and I loved it. It was just… I couldn’t even…omg. Java heaven. I had their latte with their house-made vanilla syrup. Definitely enjoyed it.

Cultivar is rated one of the best coffee spots in Dallas. If you’re a caffeine snob, you either already know about this place or need to step up your game.
