Check out this article from City of Ate!

Back in January, Lauren Daniels of the Dallas Observer food blog City of Ate wrote an article titled “Five Dallas Coffee Shops to Help Break Your Starbucks Habit.”  In  it she listed some of the best coffee shops in Dallas and critiqued each one briefly.  Pearl Cup was ranked as the number one coffee shop to help break your Starbucks habit, and we couldn’t be happier!  It is entirely worth mentioning that the other four shops listed in her article are absolutely worthy competition in the Dallas market of local coffee shops.  It is important that these other shops exist.  While we would love for you to get your coffee exclusively from us, we know that’s not always practical.  The most important thing is that you support the entire culture of independent businesses buy choosing your local coffee shop over that other, ahem… habit.  So here is a big shout out to Lauren Daniels and City of Ate for promoting a local minded cafe society.  Here is what she had to say about Pearl Cup:

“One of the most brilliant cups of coffee you’ll find in Dallas, the Cup’s signature blend coffee is a custom mix of Indonesian, African and Latin American beans. A small is $2. But the warm fuzzies you’ll get at this great spot are priceless. Besides, Starbucks baristas would never make you a froth flower.”

Also, just to play fair, these are the other four coffee shops mentioned:  Mercantile Coffee House, Murray Street Coffee Shop, Oaklawn Coffee, and Oddfellows.

Once again, thank you City of Ate for the kind words and the go local message.  Also thank you to all of our patrons as well as all patrons of local Dallas coffee shops!
