Buzz & Bites
Newest on the Spring Branch coffee and food scene is the recently opened Buzz & Bites Coffee Shop, 1444 Blalock Rd Suite G.
Opened by sisters looking to “share their passion for coffee with the world,” the owners said they also strive to serve the freshest food possible.
Ingredients like avocados, kale, eggs and locally-sourced bread packed with nutrients will energize your body as much as your coffee selection.
On a recent visit, we couldn’t believe the massive size of The Classic Croissant, stuffed with scrambled egg, tomato and Swiss cheese. Large in size with a flavor to match, we somehow managed to finish it. (Someone had to do it.) The equally massive cinnamon roll, though, had to be saved for later but was tasty as an afternoon treat warmed slightly in the microwave. A warm chai latte was the perfect accompaniment.
If you are at Buzz & Bites at lunchtime, we suggest trying the “Melting Tuna,” with tuna salad, arugula and tomato on sourdough bread. The tuna mix had a great tangy flavor and the bread was as fresh as can be. Because we were full, we passed on a pistachio muffin and, sadly, we are still regretting it.
Brunch is served all day at Buzz & Bites, as are the buzz-inducing drinks, of course. The decor is bright and cheery, but if you’re not quite ready to spend time inside a cafe, they offer carryout. Order online here: https://buzzandbites.e-tab.com/buzzandbites#!/order-type
So, if you’re someone who likes to feel a chill in the air and a warm cup of joe in your hands, check out one of the Spring Branch District’s growing number of coffee shops.
And don’t pass on the pistachio muffin.
