Slowpokes opened its first location in November 2016. The name Slowpokes conveys a message that we don't need to be rushed all the time. We need to take time to sit down, relax and enjoy a cup of coffee, beer, glass of wine and each other's company. While a coffee shop at its core, it offers much more. Slowpokes is a community shop that is shaped by its local people.
The Slowpokes movement is driven by Houston's local people that excel in their craft. Several local breweries, coffee roasters, pastries, sweets and more are brought in for you to get a taste of what Houston has to offer. On top of the extensive drink menu, a breakfast (all day), lunch, happy hour and dinner menu is available. From the delicious Salmon Bagel Sandwich or Chicken Pesto Panino to a variety of flatbreads (GF), there is a little something for everyone to enjoy.
Slowpokes awards include 2017 Houston Press Best Coffee Shop in Houston, Eater's #1 2018 Best Coffee Shops to work at. More to be announced in 2018.
