But first, Coffee
Wimberley has three fantastic coffee shops.
I'm not a coffee critic.
I'm an equal opportunity coffee drinker, and
I'm going to tell you why I love all of them.
Coffee. Other hot and cold drinks. Various food items.
Friendly service. Plenty of seating. Optional to-go cups or mugs.
Social Media presence.
Three inviting color stories. Unique settings and views.
Two have latte artists.
The other one has a drive-thru.
First up, Cactus Coffee at the Junction.
A single mom started this company with a fierce vision.
Zero waste. Organic and vegan options. Local sources.
She. Did. It. All.
The roasted coffee beans, fresh baked goods, and delightful coffee cards
are from Wimberley entrepreneurs.
Cactus Coffee is also super kid friendly with healthy snacks,
books, toys, and games, and a dedicated play area upstairs.
The large second floor space is available for gatherings and
offers beautiful views of the Texas Hill Country.
My favorite drink: Cowboy Coffee (espresso, coconut milk, and chocolate)
Sip! On the Square.
Location. Location. Location.
Sip! occupies a corner of Wimberley Square and is visible
while traveling both directions on Ranch Road 12.
As a shopper, you can pop in one door, grab a frothy designer latte,
and pop out the other door to shop the square or
settle into a seat on the dog friendly porch.
Sip! also serves fresh baked goods from a local bakery.
I asked about the dinosaurs lined up in the window sill.
"They're for the kids!"
Favorite drink: London Fog (Earl Grey tea and steamed milk)
Indigo Brew Coffees and Smoothies is the newest coffee shop
since taking over and remodeling another coffee space.
The fresh decor is sophisticated, cozy, and simply a pretty place
to read a book or visit with friends while sipping a hot or cold beverage.
Several charming seating areas are appointed with
jewel toned furniture, metallic decor, colorful art, and
mosaic stained glass windows created by the owner and an employee.
Reading material is available on a dark wooden shelf
that speaks back to the modern wooden high tables and chairs.
Indigo Brew will soon be serving lunch. Yay!
Favorite drink: Chai Latte - Hot or Iced
Coffee shops are people connectors.
Get-to-know-you dates. Job interviews. Committee meetings.
Event planning. Social gatherings.
My favorite TV fictional coffee shops/diners/cafes are:
Luke's - Gilmore Girls
Cafe Nervosa - Frasier
Central Perk - Fiends
Monk's - Seinfeld
Characters rarely sat in these places alone with a cup of coffee.
They connected with people.
The next time you need a jolt of caffeine,
invite the new mom in your neighborhood to Cactus coffee shop
or settle into a comfy couch with your tribe at Indigo Brew
or stop by Sip! while shopping the square with your family.
Connect with Coffee. Wherever you are.
Comfort & Joy
And now I want each of you to extend that same intensity
toward a full-bodied hope, and keep at it till the finish.
Don't drag your feet.
Be like those who stay the course with committed faith
and then get everything promised to them.
Hebrews 6:11-12 Message
Fall in love with Kregg, a laid back Austin coffee barista with long hair, dimples, and a crush on Angeline, who wants nothing to do with him.
Or does she?
