This will be my last review in Dallas for a while, I'm back in Austin this next week for the semester! 😊 This week's review is over Kindred Coffee Co in North Richland Hills, Texas. Kindred is a refreshing pop of independence in a sea of chain stores. Kindred sells and brews their own coffee that they roast right there in the store. They sell a variety of different espresso drinks, including a seasonal drink list, numerous Brewed options, and of course lots of tea for you tea lovers out there! In addition to a salad bar, and freshly made wraps, they also have a plethora of homemade sweets to satisfy your sweet tooth. Because it's in a shopping lot, there is plenty of parking and even a parking area for pick up orders! (See the "Cool Extras" section below for more info on pick up orders!) 

Hours: Mon-Fri 5:30am-10pm; Sat-Sun 6am-10pm

Music: I heard LOTS of the native Fort Worth singer Leon Bridges being played, which made my heart SO happy because I love him so much. I also heard some Hillsong United thrown in the mix every once in a while, and coffee + Jesus = a very happy me. 😌 

What I Ordered: a Cubana, apparently one of their most popular drinks ordered here! From what I can remember, It's made up of espresso, steamed half-and-half, and a little bit of syrup and MAN was it delicious. It tasted a lot like a toasted marshmallow in my opinion:) 

Customers: I saw a few high schoolers, but mainly younger working adults! 

Atmosphere: This coffee shop is an awesome place to come study, it has a conference room and had lots of outlets, and free wifi! It also is a great place to hang out with friends with some of their more conversational seating areas. 

Cool Extras: Okay, so I think their text-in-your-order-for-pickup idea is GENIUS! They even have a reserved parking spot for those customers, and they'll even bring it out to your car!! 😱 here's the number if you feel so inclined to use this awesome feature : 817-818-0722
