The Woodlands Texas Coffee Shop Guide
Coffee Shop Guide
A coffeehouse or coffee shop is an establishment which primarily serves prepared coffee and or other hot beverages. It shares characteristics of both a bar, and of restaurants, but are generally different than a cafeteria. As the name suggests, coffee shops focus on providing coffee and tea and will usually have light snacks such as scones, coffee cake, muffins, or bagels. Many coffee houses in the Middle East, and in West Asian immigrant districts in the Western world, offer shisha (nargile in Turkish and Greek), flavored tobacco smoked through via a hookah. Commonly known coffee shops in the US include Starbucks, Gloria Jeans, Krispy Kreme, and Seattle's Best.

The Coffee House
From a cultural standpoint, coffeehouses largely serve as centers of social interaction: the coffeehouse provides social members with a place to congregate, talk, write, read, entertain one another, or pass the time, whether individually or in small groups of 2 or 3. In the United States, the French word for coffeehouse (café) means an informal restaurant, offering a range of hot meals. There are several Coffee Shops in The Woodlands including several Starbucks and various other independent and smaller chain stores.
