Boutique, local coffee houses are as hot right now as what’s in their cups and Dallas is no exception to this trend.
Mudsmith on Lowest Greenville opened up earlier this year serving up big flavor and personality for those seeking quality downtime. Owner Brooke Humphries is already known in Dallas for Barcadia, Acme F&B and others, so she’s no stranger to mixing drinks and food with personality.
Step into the lodge decorated with deer and other taxidermy mounts to be greeted with smiling faces eager to help you determine your best fix, be it the Four Barrel Coffee from San Francisco, craft beers on tap, or wine. Four Barrel opened their doors in 2008 and uses a cast-iron Probat UG-15 roaster made in 1957 but updated with newer parts. These cast-iron Probats are rare in coffee making, meaning Mudsmith is serving up the cream of the crop.
Looking for a place to write that chart-topping novel, or just catch-up with a friend, but too late in the day for caffeine? Try the Shandy, a refreshing summer blend of Franconia beer, lemonade and agave, topped with blueberry kombucha tea. I typically don’t drink any beer mixed with lemonade and/or fruit, but I was meeting my friend Ashley of The Yuppie Hustle to talk blogs and tasted hers before promptly ordering up my own. Light and refreshing, it hardly tasted like a beer – hence it didn’t come across to me as a “ruined beer,” but rather a tasty alcohol-infused beverage.
Mudsmith is inviting without pretense, with beverages for the soul. Stop in for a cup of joe, the kombucha tea on tap, or something heavier – you’re sure to find a fix.
