Southside Espresso may be small, but it has a wonderful, calm atmosphere.

7. Southside Espresso

It's hard to see while driving by on Westheimer, but this tucked away coffeehouse is one you can't miss. You have to use the valet service to park - fortunately it is complimentary - but once you get to Southside Espresso, you're in for a relaxing, calm evening. Sit outside at a patio table, enjoy an iced coffee in this heat and spend time on your computer, or relax inside the dimly lit tiny coffeehouse. Owner, Sean Marshall, roasts his own beans, making for outstanding cups of coffee. Southside is also open until midnight all week long.

6. Boomtown Coffee

Even though Boomtown is not open past 10 p.m., we couldn't leave this awesome coffee shop off our list, especially because Boomtown has the iced mocha toddy, in which the coffee beans are steeped in cold water for almost 12 hours. Katharine Shilcutt describes the iced coffee as having a "caramel-sweet" flavor and recommends drinking it with chocolate, cream and sugar. Escape the heat and enjoy this drink late at night. It'll cool you down and satisfy your caffeine-sugar cravings.

5. Down House

Yes, Down House is not "technically" a coffee shop, but this restaurant, open until midnight daily, not only serves up delicious food such as the kim chi burger or Asian-style shrimp and grits, but great drinks as well. Try out The Wonka Sanction, a latte made with crème de cacao, dark rum and chocolate bitters, or the cold-served Kaldi Cocktail made with scotch, espresso, cream, kirsch and maple syrup. Of course, if you're in need of a wake-up, you can't go wrong with a cortado made with two shots of espresso.

East End or "EaDo".

Fuck you. It's East End and fuck all those knobsuckers who think copying NY shitbags is somehow better.

I remember when a coffee shop was more like a twenty four hour diner, ala Dot's.  Ah the times are a changing.
