Nothing cures the early-morning (or late-afternoon) blues quite like a steaming cup of joe from a local artisan shop. And one of the most underrated aspects of a long-awaited, well-deserved escape to sunny New Braunfels, TX, is our booming coffee scene. The area is widely known for its teeny drive-thrus, delectable baked goods, and the glory that is the Gruene Coffee Haus. Perhaps no Texas community is more equipped to satisfy the caffeinated needs of its citizens and visitors than picturesque Comal County, thanks to these three New Braunfels coffee shops.
The Best New Braunfels Coffee Shops
Our heavenly New Braunfels rentals are located atop the rolling crossroads of the Edwards Plateau, just northeast of San Antonio. Folks visit New Braunfels Escapes for a variety of reasons, including Comal River tubing, ranch life, caverning, and a little bit of absorbing Gruene history. And the finest way to start each full day in Texas paradise is with an awakening, satisfying cup of joe with a side of dough. Keep reading to learn more about our three favorite New Braunfels coffee shops.
It’s no secret that the Gruene Coffee Haus is the crème de la crème of Comel County java. Despite being one of the most-frequented New Braunfels coffee shops, there’s ample space to stretch and undergo a bit of business (or schoolwork) while using their complimentary Wi-Fi. The exterior of the Coffee Haus remains one of the most photographed stops in the city. The interior, meanwhile, is rustic and dimly-lit, yet sleek. Pair your flavored latte with a doughnut, muffin, or lemon bar.
Latte art junkies and Instagrammers cannot get enough of Kora Kora’s vibrant designs. Kora Kora’s talented baristas must undergo extensive training before crafting latte art. The visual aesthetic pairs beautifully with the flavorful coffee. Most patrons pull up a seat on the outdoor patio after ordering a latte and a muffin, scone, or slice of coffee cake. Otherwise, the interior loosely resembles an old schoolhouse, which adds an element of nostalgia into the caffeinated goodness.
T3. Wicked Voodoo Espresso and On the Grind
Obviously, we couldn’t decide between Wicked Voodoo and On the Grind; they’re both spectacular on-the-go New Braunfels coffee shops! They’re both quick, easy, and painless drive-thru options with multiple locations. Wicked Voodoo does have cute branding, fun “potions,” and a multitude of kid-friendly beverages. That being said, On the Grind is just so distinctly New Braunfels, with its retro signage, friendly service, and, of course, flavorful concoctions. Perhaps you can pair a sweet treat from 2tarts Bakery with a trip through Wicked Voodoo or On the Grind on your way to the Comal or Guadalupe River.
