5. White Rock Coffee
The least flashy and trend-obsessed of the list, this two-story neighborhood joint near White Rock Lake makes a damn fine cup of coffee (with practically unheard-of bottomless options on daily brews). Open mic night rocks. They’ve also got a nice selection of sandwiches and sweets to keep you fueled if needed, but why ruin that jittery high?
10105 E Northwest Hwy., East Dallas (214-341-4774).
