Drinks and Nightlife
If you enjoy a good glass of wine and a cool atmosphere, this is your place! It's one of our favorites on Magnolia Ave, just a few blocks from our loft. They have a great wine selection and a small food menu. Although we usually have a cheese and meat board, we've tried a couple of the new menu items and we weren't disappointed. This place has a laid back, hip vibe. We've gone dressy and we've gone totally casual - either works!

It's actually not just your "usual" bar... they have the most interesting and delicious drinks and a cool atmosphere. The bartenders are good at helping you decide what to order when you can't decide. You have to be looking for the place or you'll miss it - door is set back a bit and sign is metal on brick and easy to miss.

If you're looking for a small, hole-in-the-wall kind of place to shoot some pool, this is it. Located in a strip center facing Magnolia, right next to Yucatan Taco Stand. Lots of beer options, small patio.

Wine bar at it's best. This place has an extensive selection of great wines! They have really good small plates to go along with your wine. And if you're bringing along friends who aren't into wine, they also have a selection of craft beers. Bonus - almost all wine and beer options are available for retail purchase as well, so take some home!

Coffee Shops
The coffee is excellent and the place has a cool atmosphere. They are open late (10pm every day except Sunday 6pm). The vanilla latte is so good! Plus they have lots of workspace if you need a place to plug in and tend to business.

Although this coffee spot isn't in walking distance (unless you're up for a good walk!), it's one of my favorite coffee shops in town. On the recently revitalized part of Main Street (revitalization on-going!) just south of downtown, this is a great place to grab a coffee and an incredible HOMEMADE dessert like cookies or scones. The owners are super friendly and they've created a really sleek atmosphere.

I figure there might be some who prefer the standard rather than the local, so here's the closest one for a tried and true latte.

Great place for a casual lunch - you have to have the gorgonzola fries (if you like gorgonzola). They also have an EXCELLENT dinner menu. They are known for their great burgers! A lot of weekends they will have live jazzy music in the bar/dining area. We love this place - day or night!

Excellent margaritas! We're talking real lime juice, no mix. A fave is the top shelf margarita on the rocks. Food is also great - hard to have a favorite but the garlic beef tacos and chicken or pork enchiladas are really good, or try the paella! The nachos are a favorite for a lot of people - but beware, it's a huge plate! They have the option of outdoor seating right along Magnolia, and they usually have live music on the weekends too (inside).

So many good things about this place - food, drinks, and atmosphere! Very eclectic, very laid back. Indoor and outdoor seating. But most of all - best coffee menu (try the cafe freddo if you like cold coffee drinks!). We also love their kombucha (flavors vary by day). The food is EXCELLENT for both lunch and dinner! They have wine and beer selections too.

Seriously great BBQ!!! Bonus... they have a cool atmosphere and a good bar too. This place is super popular and my husband's absolute favorite place for BBQ - and he loves BBQ. (It's so good that our daughter had them cater her wedding!) Warning... don't be surprised if there's a line out the door around lunchtime! But it's worth the wait.

Don't let the storefront deceive you! It took us a while to try this place out and we're sure glad we did. This is the place to go for a good steak and a nice glass of wine. Although they do serve other great dishes as well! They have some of the best seafood options around and quite a few other delicious specialty dishes. In good weather you can sit on the side patio if you like.

I almost hesitate to highlight this local gem for fear that you might beat me to a table! It's a tiny little space - the epitome of cozy! Only about 6 or 7 small tables inside - some 4 top, some 2-3 top. In nice weather they also serve on their outdoor patio that provides for great people watching on Magnolia Ave. This is legit Italian food - they even accept Euros for payment! The owner is Italian and most often there. Can't go wrong here. NEED TO KNOW: CASH ONLY; BRING YOUR OWN WINE; CALL OR WALK BY TO SEE THEIR SCHEDULE - they usually aren't open during the week until Thursday and their schedule is sporadic at times.
