Coffee Shops For Working & Studying In Dallas

If you made it here, you’re looking for a few coffee shops to get work done in Dallas. Just know that Dallas has so many locally-owned coffee shops you’ll never have to stop at Starbucks!

Some of those shops are meant for a quick sip while others are places you can hang out a little longer.

As a blogger, I’ve spent countless hours writing blogs and developing ideas in coffee shops. Something about them just makes me more productive. 

You’ll find my favorite coffee shops for working and studying in Dallas on this list. Hopefully, you’ll find one of your favorites and a new shop to visit!

Dallas Coffee Shop: Staycation
Staycation Coffee
Staycation Coffee



Address: 201 S Texas Street

Richardson, Texas 75081

This is the newest coffee shop on this list. It opened in early 2022 and it is one of the coziest coffee shops I’ve frequented in a while. Since its opening, Staycation has been busy! You’ll want to get there early to be able to pick a place to work. They do have outdoor seating if the weather is nice. If you’re lucky, you’ll win free coffee for a month! I won in February! I absolutely love that they have a parking lot, so parking is not an issue!

Dallas Coffee Shop pax and beneficia

Pax & Beneficia Coffee

Address:5244 North O’Connor Boulevard, Suite 150

Irving TX, 75039 There are also locations in Grapevine & Fort Worth

Pax & Beneficia is a Turkish coffee spot, with traditional Turkish drinks and your everyday lattes. What I love most about this place is they’re one of the few places to grab coffee on popular U.S. holidays (Thanksgiving and Christmas). I really appreciate them as a single person! Parking isn’t too bad, but it is in a plaza with other businesses, I’ve personally never had an issue! 

Xaman Cafe

Address334 Jefferson Blvd, Dallas, TX 75208

Just a little past Bishop Arts, you can find this gem. It is a pre-Hispanic concept coffee shop that is inspired by the owner’s family back in Mexico.

Here you can grab your every day coffee or latte, or a specialty Mexican drink. I recommend trying something new. 

If you’re hungry, they have a menu full of delicious food.

If you want something stronger than coffee, they have a full bar and a speakeasy (Ayahuasca Cantina) in the back.

Parking may be an issue depending on the time of day. There is only street parking and it’s pay to park.

Address: 1318 W Davis St, Dallas, TX 75208

Wayward is one of my favorite places to get work done when I’m near the Bishop Arts District. It does get busy throughout the day and you may have trouble finding a place to set up. This is more often the case on the weekend. During the week it is less crowded.

They have small bites to eat from the best donut shop in West Dallas, Moreish.

Parking isn’t typically an issue. There is plenty of free street parking.

The Native Coffee Company

Address: 4319 Alpha Rd. Dallas TX, 75244

Native Coffee is a North Dallas coffee shop located in a church. The coffee and tea are great and they have enough space in the shop to find a place to hangout just about any time of the day.

Native also has a conference room that you can rent/reserve for free if you need it for two hours or less. I facilitated my first Pinterest Class here and have attended multiple events and meetups in their conference room!

Parking isn’t an issue, they have their own lot. Native is a little trek from where I live, but I make sure to visit 3-4 times a year. 

Civil Pour

Address: 8061 Walnut Hl Ln Ste 924, Dallas, TX 75231

Located right off of 75, Civil Pour is easy to get to and not far from downtown Dallas. It’s not your typical coffee shop because they also have an excellent selection of craft beer.

Because this place is huge, you won’t have to worry about finding a space to get some work done. Civil Pour is located in a plaza, so there is plenty of free parking!

And they stay open pretty late if you’re a late night coffee drinker. You can grab coffee until 9 pm.

The Wild Detectives

Address: 314 W Eighth St, Dallas, TX 75208

If you love coffee and books, then The Wild Detectives is the spot for you. Located in the heart of Bishop Arts, The Wild Detectives is the perfect spot for coffee or cocktails. And they have a great selection of diverse books.

There’s plenty of seating on the inside and the patio is also available for those super nice days.

Parking can be tricky because it’s in Bishop Arts. I like going early on weekends or during the week to avoid the hassle. 

What’s your favorite coffee shop to work in Dallas? Let me know in the comments!
