This shop takes its food as seriously as its coffee. The morning fare at Siphon includes truly excellent breakfast tacos and a “Texas Benedict” with sausage, gravy and poached eggs over buttermilk biscuits. In the afternoons, enjoy craft beer or wine on the sunny side patio with a variety of panini—our favorite is the prosciutto with chèvre and basil pesto. Siphon purchases its coffee from local roasters such as Amaya and Boomtown, which can be enjoyed via an elaborate process that produces a glorious cup of joe—elaborate as in a 10-minute trip through a halogen siphon set-up that makes the café look like a mad scientist’s lab. Standard lattes and espressos are options, too, as is a full lineup of local beer and even wine on draft.
