Lubbock’s Top Coffee Hot Spots

There are no ifs, ands or beans about it. When it comes to coffee, there are many options in Lubbock to rescue you when that caffeine craving kicks in. After an informal poll with local java junkies, we have narrowed it down to the kings of caffeine.

J&B Coffee

J&B Coffee is as iconic as Buddy Holly here in Lubbock. They have been a household name since 1979 and for good reason. This quaint and comfortable shop sits quietly in the heart of the Tech Terrace neighborhood (2701 26th St) alongside a handful of trendy shops and places to eat.

Once inside, you’ll find a variety of items to eat and drink to quiet your cravings and ample space to study, read or just catch up with friends. Spend a morning or a quiet afternoon at J&B’s, and see why for so many it feels like a home away from home.

Yellow House Coffee

On a recent trip to Yellow House Coffee (3017 34th St.), we visited with owner Lance Neffendorf and talked about how Yellow House has become one of Lubbock’s favorite hangouts since opening their doors in June of 2013.

“My brother is the roaster at Oak Cliff (a small coffee company in Dallas) and he got me into the coffee industry. I went to Tech, and I saw an opportunity with specialty coffee, and I decided to open up something here in Lubbock.”

If its laid-back atmosphere and sleek décor don’t draw you in, just wait until you take a sip. They pour a mighty fine cup of Joe.

The Coffee Shop

When Cameron and Rachel West opened The West Table, patrons could literally taste the West’s passion for food. With the opening of The Coffee Shop, in partnership and collaboration with longtime friend Lindsay Kerr, we’ve found a matched passion for artfully brewed coffee.
