Don’t come to Catalina Coffee on Washington Avenue looking for a WiFi hangout and a corporate coffee experience. Instead, come for velvety coffee, elaborate foam art and photography and paintings by local artists hanging on the walls. Whatever your motivation, just be sure to arrive early, as Catalina tends to fill up fast, though a few choice seats can usually be found outside. The coffee beans are roasted locally and the baked goods are brought in daily, meaning everything at Catalina is fresh and vibrant – even the loose-leaf tea selection. As Houston’s Sixth Ward has grown into a haven for local artists and artisan restaurants, Catalina Coffee brings back that old school coffeehouse vibe.
