Major midterm assignments are coming due and finals are just around the corner. Which means you’re likely to have some long study hour sessions in your near future. Studying in your apartment works, but sometimes it isn’t the most conducive place to retaining information. Maybe you have a roommate that loves metal music or you just need a change of scenery. Whatever the case, heading to one of the city’s coffee shops may be just what you need to get focused and stay on task.
Here’s our quick look at some of our favorite places to grab an americano:
Best Coffee Shops for Study Dates in Aggieland
- Sweet Eugene’s House of Java at 1702 George Bush E. What we love most about this coffeehouse is its cozy environment with a no-rush vibe. The ideal environment for students needing to cram with caffeine. Sweet Eugene’s interior boasts plenty of tables, plush sofas, and all the quirky decor needed to gather inspiration. More importantly, they’re open Monday thru Thursdays 6 a.m. to 1 a.m., Friday and Saturday 6 a.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday 7 a.m. to 1 a.m. AND offer free Wi-Fi every one of those hours. So grab yourself a cup of coffee and a panini and get down to work.
- 1541 Pastries and Coffee at 1808 Brothers Blvd. If you need sugar to concentrate, then 1541 Pastries and Coffee is going to be your favorite place in the city. This little cafe is best known for the quality of its coffee and pastries. The staff at 1541 are extremely knowledgeable about coffee beans and coffee processing. They also know how to make the creamiest, most delicious cappuccino in the city. Their macaroons and other sweet treats are also a must-try. However, their interior is somewhat limited, so get here early and with study partners to snag the best spots.
- Minuti Coffee at Northpoint Crossing. A downstairs coffee shop is one of bigger perks of living at the Northpoint Crossing residence hall. Here, you’ll enjoy quality Italian coffee with your Wi-Fi and you’ll barely need to step outdoors to get it! Minuti Coffee boasts a modern-esque aesthetic with chandeliers, matching upholstery, and fresh paintings lining the walls. And, naturally, there’s the complimentary Wi-Fi that’s key for getting your school work done.
