Here at F&N, we strive to make you feel at home. It's all about discovering the oasis in our backyard and enjoying some time to yourself or taking in a moment with friends. Along with a hearty selection of beverages from coffee to beer to wine, we also provide a few tasty treats.
For breakfast, local favorite Red Rabbit Bakery provides us with a variety of vegan baked goods including zucchini muffins and vanilla lavender donuts. If you haven't yet tried Early Bird granola, it may be your new favorite! Served with yogurt, this is a delectable and healthy way to start your day. If you're looking for a little fresh fruit, maybe our bruléed grapefruit served with sugar in the raw is for you. We got you covered here at F&N.
Anytime snacks include the usual suspects such as a bowl of olives or mixed nuts as well as the always delicious and old favorite, corn nuts. The smoked oyster plate is a house favorite, served straight from the can with lemon, sea salt, chili and saltine crackers. Add to this mix a michelada and you've got yourself a solid afternoon. See more on this below.
We proudly brew Stumptown at Friends and Neighbors. For us the decision to partner with them for the coffee provisions was a no brainer. For starters, they are friends of ours from the way back days in Brooklyn and we like working with friends. More importantly though, we appreciate their love for the bean. Their sourcing practices are impeccable with a serious focus on paying top dollar for quality product and building lasting relationships with their farmers. Traceability, sustainability, and dedication to deliciousness- that's a business model we can get behind.
Our tea Selection is provided by Smith Teamaker. The clever clean packaging was the first thing that caught our eye, but it takes more than just a pretty face to win our affection. Smith tea is the brain child of master tea blender Steve Smith who has nearly 40 years experience in the tea business, his pedigree includes co-founding Stash tea and founding Tazo tea. Basically, this guy knows what he's doing and we think it shows in the blends we've selected, we hope you'll agree.
In addition to coffee and tea we have a small selection of adult beverages i.e. beer and wine. We put some hard hours in tasting an array of wines to compile our tight selection of 2 red, 2 whites, a rose and of course something bubbly. Our beer selection was curated by resident beer enthusiast and night owl server Jeff Wallace. His suggestion to focus on Texas craft beers just felt right, if you've got some of the best in your own backyard why look any further? We also stock Lone Star because we'd be fools not to, and we're no fools. Texas forever!
Feeling festive? We've got fun drinks to match your mood! Let us dress up your beer with our house made Michelada mix. We don't want to reveal any secrets regarding the ingredients but we think it's pretty top notch. If it's wine you're after, we offer a take on white Sangria featuring performances by pineapple, cucumber, and mint. We've heard they go down like water. You may want a carafe.
So there you have it folks! Now the best thing to do is try it out yourself. Open from 8am til 10pm, we're here for all different types of needs. We're also pretty friendly so feel free to strike up a fun conversation. It may be the highlight of your day.
Cheers from the cafe!
