5 New Fort Worth Coffee Shops and Experiences to Try Right Now
T.The number of new coffee houses in Fort Worth has skyrocketed in recent years, and there is no sign that the trend is slowing. Our need for a caffeine shot, space to relax for even 15 minutes, and a community hub in our neighborhood seem all too necessary. Here are five new Fort Worth coffee shops and experiences that are sure to cheer you up.
2736 Stanley Avenue
Clearfork stores just announced the regular addition of a coffee cart to the mix. Coupled with the nearby Press Café on the Trinity River, you can now enjoy homemade coffee drinks and breakfast dishes from this local upstart. Known for its drive-thru model near Texas Christian University, Carter’s serves fresh egg and cheese sandwiches, as well as Vietnamese iced coffee sweetened with a traditional dash of sweetened condensed milk. You can find the truck seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Clearfork site.

120 W. Third Street, Suite 111
For the past five years, Arcadia Coffee has been serving espresso in an area full of coffee shops – near Southside. The stylish boho café, born in Weatherford, has made a name for itself with freshly baked vegan bread and goodies, as well as coffee, such as the midnight waffle enriched with charcoal and doused with powdered cinnamon and whipped cream. This summer, Arcadia will be opening a second location right next to the Sundance Square Courtyard, making it even easier to get vegan bites and great coffee.

The railcar coffee & spirits
122 Exchange Avenue
Founded by Kristin Brown, The Fort Worth Stockyard welcomed The Railcar Coffee & Spirits earlier this year. The shotgun-style shop front café was established in honor of Western culture and Cowtown’s train history. A portion of the sales go to local animal shelters when you need another good reason to buy a coffee. Stop by for their signature drink called 3:10 To Matcha, a rose matcha latte. The railcar also offers a selection of beer, wine, and hard seltzer.
Josh and Mary Hanna Tyler from Fort Worth Coffee Co. took over the former Craftwork Coffee at Camp Bowie.

4731 Camp Bowie
With Craftwork Coffee like the Craftwork at The Cooper Apartments continuing to enter the hospitality bar business, the popular Camp Bowie location recently changed hands. Thanks to new owners Josh and Mary Hanna Tyler, it restarted as Fort Worth Coffee Co. in mid-April. Josh is a familiar face as he was a former craftwork employee. This new store has the same full-service coffee bar experience up front. In the rear area there are communal and private offices.
Bonus coffee opportunity
Finally, this Sunday, May 2nd, the Fort Worth Botanic Garden is inviting visitors to its first spring market in the garden from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event includes entry without entry to the garden between 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. This includes the annual Spring Sip and Shop event with local artisans, food trucks, and live music.
This year the market welcomes a brand new offering – a Tea and coffee festival with some of your favorite home-grown coffee and tea houses, including Lazy Daisy Coffee Bar. The indoor-outdoor event will extend across the entire campus.
