With rustic furniture and bohemian-inspired decor, Mudleaf Coffee is a peaceful place to grab a warm drink and journal, read, or catch up with friends. Mudleaf Coffee has plenty of comfortable seating options, ranging from cozy leather couches to hanging rattan chairs. It’s also pretty spacious, so even on busy afternoons, there are typically open seats.

If you’re not too keen on coffee, there are still plenty of caffeinated and decaf options for you, like tea, hot chocolate, and Coca-Cola. There’s also a menu of delicious snacks and pastries. The avocado toast, which comes on Texas toast, topped with veggies, seeds, and balsamic vinegar, is a favorite.

A Texas-based business originally launched in Dallas, Golden Boy Coffee Co. opened its second location at Plano’s Boardwalk at Granite Park. Golden Boy isn’t just any coffee shop, though. It’s primarily a coffee joint, but it doubles as a bar, with a robust menu of beer and wine. The unique offerings make it a perfect spot for a relaxed date, a chatty evening out with friends, or a nightcap after dinner.
If you like your coffee shops colorful with a hearty mix of eclectic furniture items and decor, you’ll appreciate Golden Boy’s funky interior. Here, you’ll find mid-century modern-inspired furniture, elegant gold mirrors, wooden details, and even the brand’s larger-than-life cartoon mascot painted on the walls. Menu favorites include Golden Boy’s signature spice-focused Golden Chai Latte and cinnamon-sweet Honey Bear Latte.
The Boardwalk at Granite Park is home to plenty of restaurants, too, so you can pair your Golden Boy visit with a dinner at a local eatery, too. Golden Boy is at Suite 102A in the Boardwalk at 5800 TX-121 at Plano’s Granite Park community. Visit from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday or 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
Coffee Del Rey
If you haven’t been to Plano’s Coffee Del Rey, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to support your neighbors while enjoying a deliciously frothy latte. Coffee Del Rey is passionately local. This family-owned Plano spot partners with the North Texas Food Bank to support local families and individuals in need. That’s not their only local partnership, though. They also work with local schools, government groups, churches, and small businesses, contributing to the local community and ecosystem to build an even better, more connected, and more equitable Plano.
This peaceful coffee shop roasts small-batch coffee, using responsibly sourced coffee beans. Because Coffee Del Rey focuses on in-house brews using high-quality beans, try one of the simple drinks, like a cappuccino, pour-over coffee, or Americano. You can also purchase their beans by the bag to enjoy their unique flavors at home. If you’re coming to Coffee Del Rey to hang out, work, or study, be aware that it’s a fairly intimate space. Because you won’t find a host of outlets or public restrooms, it’s a better fit for brief visits or to-go orders.
Though it’s not as spacious as other Plano-area coffee shops, Coffee Del Rey still has a clean, serene atmosphere. Expect greenery and minimalist decor. You can visit Coffee Del Rey at 1915 N. Central Expy in Suite 340. It’s open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It closes on Sundays.
