Houston's love affair with coffee shops doesn't seem to be in any danger of dying out. And this time of year, with classes at colleges and high schools starting up again and students looking for places to study (or not), coffee shops are swinging back into high gear -- especially those open into the early morning hours.

Here's what we think are the ten best late-night coffee shops in Houston.

Note: There are tons of wonderful coffee houses, like Catalina Coffee, Dirk's and Revival Market, but these (along with others) are not open late at night. We do love their coffee, but this is a list of coffee shops that don't go to bed so early.

Relax with a cup of coffee at Double Trouble any night of the week.

10. Double Trouble Caffeine & Cocktails

This Midtown bar/coffeehouse is great for studying in the afternoon, but at night it's more of a social hangout. The bartenders are extremely personable and ready to help you decide whether it should be a shot of espresso, a cappuccino, latte or Americano. The coffee drinks made from Greenway Coffee are always spot on. Double Trouble is open until 2 a.m. daily.

9. Bohemeo's

Recently ranked as the top bar in the East End, or "EaDo," Bohemeo's is also a wonderful place to spend an evening any night of the week. No, it is not the best place to sit and drink your coffee in peace, but it's great for live music, especially for Beatles Open Mic night on Wednesdays from 8-11. If your choice-coffee concoction isn't on the menu, your barista will still take your order. And remember you can't go wrong with a frozen mochaccino blended with either chocolate, white chocolate or caramel.

8. Black Hole Coffee House

Similar to Inversion, Black Hole, which opened in Montrose back in early 2011, provides the typical hipster environment for late night coffee-goers until midnight each day of the week, especially for students studying at St. Thomas University or Rice University. The coffee shop created by the same people who brought you Poison Girl and Antidote provides comfy chairs and couches. While the locally roasted coffee from Marfa is great, the tea and snacks will make you come back. Opt for the ever-popular Cajeta latte or or sip on a Chai tea latte with a PBJ+, which isn't your ordinary peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Black Hole sticks goat cheese plus the peanut butter and jelly between warm challah bread.

East End or "EaDo".

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


Jesus I remember when people only wrote insulting notes one time.


Jesus the only thing worse than the writing in this article are the pictures. Are you taking these with your phone??

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