After a morning jog at Turtle Creek, my sister and I decided to venture around the Uptown neighborhood and check out the coffee at the Alcove. This place is an espresso bar by day and a wine/beer bar by night (the perfect combo!). The atmosphere was very cozy and welcoming. Inside the bar you can find large couches and a big projection screen (which seems like a great place to be at during game nights). The barista was very friendly and nice. It stayed pretty quiet the entire time we were there, with only a few people coming in and out. There is a small, outdoor seating area in the front where morning joggers sit with their dogs, while refueling on some caffeine (the Alcove is very pet friendly- it has water bowls outside for dogs to drink and the baristas offer doggie treats!). I ordered a regular latte and it was divine! Unfortunately, the coffee bar is only open until 2pm on weekdays and 3pm on weekends. Given the distance from my house and the very limited hours, this may not become a regular place for me to grab some coffee. However, I do look forward to coming back once I turn 21 and I can check out their beer/wine selection! 😉
The Alcove is located in 2907 State St, Dallas, TX 75204
Coffee is served from 7am to 2pm during the week and 8am to 3pm weekends.
