Rest of the Best: 10 Best Places to Study in Houston

Houston Public Library Facebook
5. Houston Central Library
500 McKinney St

What better place to study than the hub of all knowledge and resources in the city? The enormous central library is filled with plenty of space to study, and all the supplemental information you could possibly desire. The only downside to the poor student is that it's $2 an hour to park ($16 maximum), unless you go on Sunday and park on the street when it's free parking. If you can get a drop off it's great, though.

Ben's Beans Facebook
Spider-Man and zombie-approved!
4. Ben's Beans
1302 Dallas St

You're not going to find a more welcoming atmosphere than at Ben's Beans. It's nestled right in the heart of Houston and within walking distance of Discovery Green if you need a brisk walk to clear your head. The staff there is super friendly and you're apt to be surrounded by plenty of artistic folks. Also, they offer a 15 percent student discount.

Bohemeo's Facebook
3. Bohemeo's
708 Telephone Rd

There's a tremendous amount of ambiance at Bohemeo's that I find particularly conducive to studying. Surrounded by great local art and a fine selection of craft beers, you just feel like you should be accomplishing things if you're in there. Weekends and evenings you sometimes get live music, so it's usually better as a day study place unless you check with the staff first.

Te House of Tea Facebook
2. Te House of Tea
1927 Fairview St

This one comes strong on the recommendation of Glass the Sky's excellent keyboardist by night/entertainment lawyer by day, Erin Rodgers, who says she never would have passed the bar without Te House of Tea as a study spot. The atmosphere is extremely low key and calm, which can be good on the frazzled nerves of science and law students. Plus, the tea is excellent.

Inversion serves the fourth best cappuccino in the city!
1. Inversion
1953 Montrose Blvd

The best place to study outside your home in Houston is Inversion. First of all, the wi-fi has the strength of ten lesser shops, and is great for streaming lectures and other video. The parking is reasonable, the prices for the food and drinks even more so, and you're surrounded by pieces produced by the nearby Art League. It's definitely a place more geared towards the individual than a big group, which is a bonus for those who need to focus, and there's usually food trucks if you want something a little more filling. A fantastic place to pursue your studies.
