Bungalow serves a menu of locally roasted coffees and a selection of designer clothes in the eclectically decorated interior of a restored private home. Wash down a muffin or scone ($3 each) with a steaming cup of coffee ($2+). Or sip an augmented coffee ($2.50+) such as the Spice Trader, mixed with cardamom and vanilla, or the Summer Road, made from malt powder and chocolate. Alternatively, browse racks of clothes and gifts such as collapsible, BPA-free Vapur water bottles ($9.99) or Original Retro Brand T-shirts ($29.95–$39.95) emblazoned with logos from beloved colleges and discontinued breakfast cereals.
Eclectic décor details such as a fluffy sofa, walls festooned with classic signs, and a countertop made from an old door help to imbue Bungalow with the cozy feel of the home that preceded it. Web-surfing patrons can plug laptops into numerous power outlets or borrow one of the shop's loaner iPads to use as the world's most technologically advanced plate.
Bungalow's homey atmosphere extends from the white siding outside to the mismatched couches inside. Retro signage hangs on walls both inside and outside on the patio , and stamped tile surrounds the coffee bar. While surfing the Internet on an iPad borrowed from the store, patrons can sip on coffee drinks made from beans roasted by local purveyor Java Pura. Muffins and sweet biscotti let guests sharpen their teeth without relying on the village grindstone again. Colorful shelves hold a collection of boutique gifts and clothing by local Texas designers.
