From the taco trucks on Edgebrook to the snow cone shops down Preston, it’s no secret that our small city of Pasadena is the home to some of the best hidden gems in the Houston area.   

What makes Pasadena so great is the versatility that it brings with each shop it opens. With the fall season approaching, it’s time to talk about the local coffee spot you should be visiting.  

Having two locations on Pansy St. and Spencer Hwy, Sycamore Grounds Coffee House is home to the best coffee and pastries in Pasadena. Not only does it provide amazing customer service, it focuses on providing a local coffee house feel for its customers to enjoy.   

Whether you’re looking for a place to study or enjoy a nice warm cup of Joe in the morning, Sycamore Grounds will make you feel right at home. Beyond the coffee grounds, some might say the delightful baristas, some of whom are our very own former PISD students from Pasadena Memorial, are what makes the shop a welcoming atmosphere.  

“I like the coffee and the inside environment. The customer service is really great. All of the [baristas] who make the coffee do a good job. Plus, they have a drive-through so it’s quicker,” said Bruce Stone, a frequent customer and Pasadena ISD employee.  

With old photographs of famous Pasadena architecture hanging on the walls and their simple, yet effective aesthetic of homely living, it’s easy to get lost in this intimate coffee house.  

The next time you’re looking for a place to spend a peaceful fall morning or afternoon, be sure to check out Sycamore Grounds! For those of you who are looking to have a fun night with friends and family, Sycamore also provides Open Mic nights for everyone in the area!
