  1. Hard to find a bigger coffee fanatic than myself, so I really enjoyed this blog! Taking a trip down to Waco in my car to visit some family and friends, so this also sort of helped me out big time. Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment Darryl! Common Grounds has a drive-through if you’re taking a trip down to Waco and need a quick pick-me-up. The rest of the coffee shops in Waco are more suited for to-go orders or sit-down stops. xx – Anshula

  2. We’re feeling the pull towards Texas these days, it seems like an amazing place to be, year-round. Window shopping what it’s like, after this post I’m sold on the coffee culture of Texas! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Pinewood coffee is a terrible coffee shop. I went there on a trip and was excited to try it out; however, I was shocked to find out how rude the lady at the register was. I would expect better hospitality from a small, local coffee shop. If you’re traveling to Waco, I would definitely recommend supporting another coffee shop on this list. It’s sad that a business hires people that treat customers in such a manner when they should be treated as a valuable part of running a business.

    1. I’m so sorry you had to experience that. Service is a very important part of running a good coffee shop. And it hits doubly hard when you expect courteous service and are let down. Thank you so much for sharing. Whilst I personally had a good experience with the baristas, I have no doubt your comment will help many readers make a more informed decision. xx – Anshula

  4. Have you visited the newest coffee shop in Waco, Bitty & Beau’s Coffee? We’ve been open less than a year, but already have over 140 Google reviews, with the highest ratings of any coffee shop in Waco. Besides having great coffee and treats, and an awesome space for studying or visiting, the main reason for that high rating is that all of our front line employees have disabilities, such as Down syndrome or autism. They bring a contagious joy to their work that makes Bitty & Beau’s the “Happiest Place in Waco”.

    Please check us out, and hopefully include us in your next review!

    1. Hey Mark, I haven’t had a chance to visit yet and your coffee shop sounds absolutely lovely! The next time I’m in Waco, I’ll definitely stop by and check it out. Thank you for letting me know about it! xx – Anshula
