Summertime means heat, and with all the hot weather, you’ll need the perfect beverage to quench your thirst. That’s right— the summer season creates the perfect excuse for iced coffee – and lots of it! We know that Houstonians love to drink it up, too.
Whether you prefer a flavored lavender iced latte or a more traditional cold brew, there’s no denying that H-Town has some of the best coffee in the Southeast region.

Morningstar – 4721 N Main Street, Houston, TX 77009
Located in The Heights, Morningstar is a Houston favorite for breakfast, lunch, matcha, donuts, and of course, coffee!

Black Hole Coffee House –4504 Graustark Street, Houston, TX 77006

Although the airy, low-slung space is still closed for dine-in, you can get your iced coffee and accompanying treats to-go. There are plenty of sweets to compliment your daily dose of caffeine – including brownies, cookies, and more. Looking for something more savory to go with your morning or afternoon cup of Joe?
