Oh man!!! What an awesome place to fall into for a great cup of joe!!!! The atmosphere was great and fun and calm all at the same time, the barista was friendly and understanding to my needs.

When visiting our son we make this a priority stop. Better than the coffee are the people. They make you feel so welcome.

Great set up and coffee. Would have preferred a larger cup but price was fine. Would like better food options as they seem to conflict with the fresh approach. Mixed seating setup but a bit close to others and no real chance for private conversations

We were in San Antonio for a couple of days & we saw this nice little coffee shop tucked in to a strip mall. Glad we stopped they have a great caramel macchiato. They also have those huge coffee like cups like they had on the tv show "Friends". They have excellent muffins as well.

The coffee was way too bitter for me. There was nothing I could do to fix it, so I couldn't finish my iced coffee. The inside was very attractive, however, and my husband sort of liked his cup of hot coffee.

While Local Coffee has a somewhat limited selection, the place still has fantastic choices for everyone. As a young woman, I love the coffee as well as the free Wifi and I think it's a great place for young people to hang out.

I've had both an iced latte and regular coffee here, and neither live up to the hype. They use only whole milk in their lattes, and it was much too rich for me. The staff also felt snobby, instead of friendly.

Local is a great place. I had a cortado and the coffee itself was really bright and acidic (which I like). The drink was made perfectly, and the staff was friendly. We were happy to sit and enjoy our drinks without feeling judged (which happens quite often in Dallas). Also, my husband and I split a cinnamon roll. I had... More

They have a variety of locally roasted coffee from beans gathered around the world. The Kenyan pour over I ordered was delightful, having delicious flavor notes. I got my coffee to go, but I did notice that the indoor space was welcoming and there is outdoor space for a nice day. If you appreciate specialty coffee, then this is a... More

What a delicious cup of cappuccino on Thanksgiving morning... topped off with a gorgeous flourish in the froth. Something to be thankful for!
