Tea has always been sort of my thing but this year the sultry scent of coffee caught my attention and tastebuds.
There’s just something about the silky smooth taste that, if only for a moment, once I take that first sip sends me on a trajectory of warm and cozy vibes.
While out and about, I happened upon this little coffee shop near me that gave me all the Austin vibes without the Austin traffic. Can we say amazing!!
Cafecito, or “coffee”, as others like to call it, and the warmth of a fresh piece of pan dulce reminds me of my hometown and life in my childhood years. If you know anything about the RGV you know that coffee and pan dulce is “por vida.”
My newly found love for cafecito led me to look for a coffee shop near me, and thankfully I was taken to Bandera Coffee Company. It was easy to find in the downtown area of Harlingen, Texas and immediately upon entering the vibe invites you to come in and stay a little or even better yet a long while.
Three things that will make you fall in LOVE with Bandera Coffee:
1. The Atmosphere. It is like walking into a different space. A different city if you will. Outside you experience the local feel and inside gives very eclectic vibes.
Quiet and quaint. You can listen to music or write your latest masterpiece. This unique setup allows Bandera Coffee Co. to provide a much different change of pace in comparison to the other coffee shops nears me.
2. The Variety. This is not your average coffee. You can choose from coffee, tea and an array of amazing pastries. The variety and diverse availability of items ensures there is never a lack of options for any taste bud.
3. They Rep the 956. There’s just something about repping the city you’re in. The RGV is an area brimming with rich traditions and heritage.
I was able to bask in it and partake in the fullness of the city. To experience and see first hand that this city is on the rise is exceptional.
Curves and Cafecito with the occasional pan dulce or macaroon makes life just a little sweeter.
This coffee shop near me provided delightful tastes in an environment that welcomed a break from the routine atmosphere.
I will venture here again and look forward to the cafecito and chill vibes.
If you’re ever in the area or decide to visit the area make sure to check out Bandera Coffee Co. I guarantee they won’t disappoint!
