Strong, scrumptious lattes/coffees

In town from New York visiting family and curious where
one might find Lattes and Americanos that mean business and taste beautiful.
We get a bit spoiled up north with all the caffeine addled farm to table fiends and we're looking for what's best in these parts, especially the westerly part of Houston. During past visits we've hit cedar creek and Catalina which are pretty solid, but I'm hoping there are other options for coffee drinks.

Mote questions to come I'm sure...
And thanks so much!

  1. How far west? This place opened recently to good reviews. In fact, it might be the patisserie another poster was recently looking for...

        I looked for this spot last time I was visiting Houston and couldn't find it... Am I missing something?

        Any reviews on it by the by?

        Our staple coffee system has been mostly sorted, we drive to Cedar Creek pretty much every day and get our Latte's to go from there. Sort of a weird system, but they have the strongest espresso and good whole milk, the two things that my mornings need most....
        It only gets really odd when we're craving caffeine late at night and have to elbow our way up to the bar to ask for a double shot of the non-whiskey variety.

        Some of the 'tenders don't enjoy that...

    1. If you don't mind the vibe of a food court, Tuscany coffee at Greenway Plaza had a great coffee.
      In the west I would add my vote to Flora and Muse. Went once and really liked it.
