If you’re in the mood for a tangy, fermented beverage, stop by Wedgewood-Houston’s Falcon Coffee Bar, they’re now serving (locally-made!) Walker Brothers craft kombucha by the can. If you’re on the east side of town, quench your thirst at Kettner Coffee Supply. New to the menu are turmeric and beetroot lattes.
Grab your cycling shoes and clip in at Cycle Haüs, a new studio that’s now open on the East side.
