Cup of coffee at Anatole on Briarwood in Midland, Texas



According to the National Coffee Association's blog, coffee drinkers in the United States consume an average of 3 cups of coffee a day. They also say that 62 percent of Americans drink at least a cup a day. If you're in that group, Midland has plenty of coffee shops to cater to all of your needs. The best part is that these coffee shops offer way more than coffee, so go ahead and check them out!


The recently opened Hand Cafe is literally right beside your Anatole on Briarwood apartment home. Their drinks feature espresso and coffee from Big Bend Coffee Roasters in Marfa using beans that are certified organic, kosher, and fair trade. Now that's coffee you can feel good about drinking! Food options include bagels, crepes, soups, sandwiches, and pastries. 

Feel free to bring your laptop; there are plenty of outlets and USB ports as well as free WiFi. The fenced in outdoor patio has play equipment for kids and comfortable seats so you can catch up with friends. 

The hours are simple; weekdays they are open from 7 am until 7 pm and on weekends they're open between 10 am and 2 pm. 


There are two locations of Brew Street Bakery in Midland; the closest to Anatole on Briarwood is at 4610 N. Garfield Street. The second location is downtown in the basement of Bank of America. Owner and baker Alli Baker wants to provide a welcoming environment where people will get together and enjoy fresh baked goods. Brew Street Bakery is more than an average coffee shop. From the moment you walk in, you'll want to stay a while. Choose from coffee, tea, craft beer and wine. Get there early so you don't miss out on the delicious breakfast items which often sell out. Starting at 11 they serve flatbreads, quiche, and scratch made soup of the day. On Saturdays they offer an extended menu. 

Brew Street Bakery opens at 6:30 am. Monday through Wednesday they close at 9 pm and Thursday through Saturday they stay open until 11 pm. They are closed on Sundays.


Tucked inside the Imperial Shopping Center is Bean & Grape, another coffee shop with lots of personality. In addition to coffee, tea, and espresso, they serve wine and beer. They also have specialty brunch drinks such as mimosas and breakfast beers. 

The food selections are superb. Brunch is served until 3 pm and includes old fashioned biscuits and gravy, sweet cream pancakes, and delicious stuffed flatbreads. Bar snacks, charcuterie boards and small plates are available after 4 pm. Try a wagyu slider, grown up grilled cheese, or spicy lettuce wraps. You can't go wrong with any of your choices!

Bean & Grape opens at 7 am Tuesday through Friday and at 10 am on weekends. They close at 10 pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, at midnight on Thursday through Saturday, and 2 pm on Sundays. They are closed on Mondays. 

Of course there are also several Starbucks throughout Midland, as well as Panera and McDonalds which all serve coffee. You have plenty of coffee choices to get you through the day!
