Scholars Caffe Barista has re-opened their doors to the public. Scholars Caffe serves the community top quality coffee and beverages. Recently, Scholars has incorporated new menu items soon to come later this year. Scholars Cafe has been in business for the past year. It is one of those places where Laredoans can come and relax, read and catch up, or surf the web with their complimentary Wi-Fi service.
Today, I am having a Caramel Frappé, one the many drinks here at scholars (they also have it in chocolate). Other
specialty drinks include, Espressos, Cappuccinos, Lattes, teas, etc.
Like always the coffee is top quality and is grinded at the bar. You are also given the option to add some cream to your drink or one of their various pastries for a drizzle of flavor. Scholar’s also includes the option of preparing your drink with 2 percent, soy, or whole milk in order to incorporate different lifestyles. I give this frappé 5 out of 5 stars.
What I also had to today was one of the many Italian sodas they offer. Just to name a few they have: Strawberry, Raspberry, and Cherry. I chose the Mint flavored soda because of the freshness and its refreshing feel after being in the hot Laredo heat. I highly recommend trying any of their many flavors.
In summary this is not your ordinary coffee shop from the show “Friends.” This is a lay back place to enjoy your favorite brew or bagel, catch up with friends, or to have a work break. This is also a great place to socialize. Scholars’ demonstrates a new atmosphere and a side of Laredo that we must embrace.
Scholar's Caffe Barista is now located at 120 W. Village Blvd # 115, Laredo, Tx. Their work hours include Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 9:00 p.m. and Saturday from 11:00 a.m.-9:00 p.m. The staff is always eager to welcome new customers with walk-ins and take-out orders encouraged, but for the organized socialite—reservations are available.
