I know what you’re thinking, I have exactly 5 finals to study for, 4 presentations, 3 papers to write, 2 group projects, and a portfolio to finish. In one week. Welcome to the end of school! Don’t worry though, I’ve got Denton’s HOTTEST Study spots right here. So sit back and keep reading (or procrastinating, no judgment here) and get your study vibes on with todays post!
In today’s post, I will rank the places out of 5 for loudness, lighting, crowds, and coffee $$.
Denton Freedom House – aka Zera’s Coffee Shop
This place I go to every Monday for some R & R with myself, and a good cup of coffee. With booths, window seating overlooking Backyard on Bell, outdoor patio with loungers, big love seats, and even a private room for rent, all wrapped up with a rustic relaxing vide that just makes you feel like you’re back at home. I sometimes even drag in a blanket to curl up in a chair with! Coffee prices are great too. For just under $4, you can get a bottomless, yes a BOTTOMLESS, cup of coffee made fresh that hour for all your study woes. Can I get an AMEN?!

West Oak Coffee Bar
Coffee, pastries, beer, handcrafted espresso? What more could a drowning college kid want? (besides a better paying job and loans payed off) West oak has that same earthy vibe of zera’s, but with an upscale taste. While Zera’s feels like you’re lounging at home surrounded by family, West Oak is more orderly and lets get down to business. I go here when I have two hours to crank out a five page paper, with some great biscotti and fancy espresso. This is the place I would bring a client to for a meeting or have my company meetings at if we had to meet in Denton. Overall, a great place to get some serious work done.

This was my first coffee shop, ever. This place has my heart and always will. From my first Jupiter’s Nectar to my first green smoothie. This place has all your Denton coffee needs for those late night study hauls. With organic options ranging from smoothies to muffins, and unhealthy options like their cookie milkshake and cookies to snack on while you study till midnight, or all night. This is every Dentonite’s go to study joint, coffee shop, and cafe for just about every occasion. And if you’re into art, there are always cool art pieces on the wall from local artists!

Tired of studying in the UNT library and need a change of scenery? Walk on over to the little coffee joint known as Aura Coffee! This place is similar to Jupiter house in ambiance, but has more colored walls and a bright feeling to it. Located by food and right off of UNT campus, this place will be your new hole in the wall study joint! Also, they have the best pour over in town so they’ve got your coffee fix covered.

Remember to take a study break every once in a while and enjoy yourself!
You’ve made it this far in the semester! So why not treat yourself to something a little relaxing! Denton has some GREAT wine bars, like Stevie’s and Wine2, where you can take a moment and just relax in the midst of finals madness!!
As always loves, tag, share, and keep on keepin on!
