Keep Cool and Caffeinated: Houston's Top 10 Iced Coffee Drinks

4. Iced cajeta latte at Antidote

Antidote is already renowned for its cajeta latte, made with a goat's milk dulce de leche that gives your standard latte a nutty, caramel-sweet depth. But you can also get it iced, which is my number one recommendation for anyone getting caffeinated at Antidote during the summer.

3. 24-hour cold brewed coffee at Inversion

This is exactly what it sounds like: coffee that's been cold-brewed over a 24-hour period by being allowed to steep slowly in cool water, making for an intensely complex and flavorful iced coffee -- without any sugar or cream added. If you're watching your diet but craving something sweet and rich...Inversion's 24-hour cold brewed coffee is your ticket.

2. Iced coffee at Revival Market

Revival Market's coffee is so damn good on its own, I hate to add any sugar to it. The coffee is naturally sweet thanks to the roasting processes used by the local roasters like Amaya which Revival stocks, and a hot espresso drink like flat white on its own is perfect just as it is -- no sugar added. The same is true for its iced coffee. Stunning in both its richness and simplicity, this coffee doesn't need anything besides a straw.

What about a bottled cold brewed iced coffee...Wolfgang Puck Iced Coffee...sold at Krogers and created by the famous Chef Puck himself in four fab flavors.  Only 120 calories, organic, cold brewed and kosher.  This is easier than going in to buy one and less costly I believe because you don't have to add all the sugar, syrups, etc.  Keep them at home or grab one at the market...perfect grab and go and fits right into the cup holder in the car. Twitter@CutTheFrapp;

Great story but you left out Empire Cafe. You should check out their iced coffee. Good job nonetheless!

Also, I'm surprised you didn't name Lee's Sandwiches. Their iced coffee is probably THE standard for iced Vietnamese coffee in Houston these days.

Dirk's Iced Mayan mocha latte gets my vote - they have a whole bunch of other iced flavors that rock as well!

Great coffee review, Kate. Iced coffee also comes in a milk carton now too, except without the missing children on the side.  I think it's by International Delight.  Thanks!  Keep on writin' em.

 @Mai Pham You're totally right. Lee's deserves a spot on the list, too.
