Your Home Away From Home: Crooked Tree Coffee

Crooked Tree Coffee KGB Cup

Even the cups are eclectic. This one features the coat of arms of a Russian intelligence agency. Sadly, this particular mug broke not long after my visit.

On Routh Street in Uptown Dallas, there’s a little gray house. If not for the sign in the front yard, it could be a small family home. Inside it feels just as homey, with warm yellow walls and an eclectic assortment of furniture. If you’ve ever wanted a coffee shop in your living room, Crooked Tree Coffee can give you the next best thing: a living room in a coffee shop. This is one of my favorite cafes in Dallas, and I highly recommend it.
