West Oak Coffee Bar might be young in age, but it’s already rich in history. Opening their doors this past December, West Oak Coffee Bar gained an immediate following. Fun fact: their front doors are rumored to be authentic 1960’s Dallas post office doors. We went for the cold chocolate milk on tap and stayed for the infectiously warm staff and irresistibly cozy atmosphere.

 When you walk into West Oak Coffee Bar you step into a place of comfort, smiles, laughs, and hearty chatter. Donned in dapper attire, there is always a bright smiling member of staff awaiting you at the bar. The converted 1920’s boxcar bar is eager to welcome all and get you acquainted with the menu.

The menu itself is meticulously pieced together and blooming with handcrafted and delicious options. Whether you’re in the mood for an open-faced meatball sub or a generous slice of fresh vanilla raspberry cream pie, you will find a gem on the menu that is sure to give your taste buds a wild ride. Take a seat along the repurposed bowling-alley-lane-wall-bench and soak up the ambiance. A corner along the back displays the work of a local tattoo artist, the excellent Tristan Bradshaw from Ace’s Tattoos.

If the outdoor scene is more your style, make sure to check out the patio in front that faces the ever iconic downtown Denton courthouse which we think is especially breathtaking at night.West Oak Coffee Bar is joining 35 Denton for it’s first ever venue debut where the local coffee spot will double as an acoustic lover’s paradise.

You can grab a cold, local craft brew or enjoy an Intelligentsia espresso beverage while you sit back and enjoy the mellow sounds of singer/songwriters galore. Make your way to West Oak Coffee Bar along the square during the festival and prepare to give your ears an acoustic treat!
