The Golden Roast Coffee Roasters

This is my first time at this coffee shop, and I am fairly satisfied. Prices are a little cheaper than what I’ve seen at other coffee shops, and they have different daily roasts, which is great. There isn’t a huge variety of coffee, but they have the standards, and they also have a decent tea selection. The bar tops are a little high and it’s not as quiet as I would like it, personally, but that’s really nitpicking. Overall, it’s a good local coffee shop.
While at The Golden Roast Coffee shop the other day, Don (the owner) let me sample their new watermelon drink of the month. On a hot summer day, it was the perfect refresher. My taste buds were dancing, I was grinning after every sip. :) If you're near UT campus, I encourage you to stop by Golden Roast and try their watermelon drink of the month. It was ah-mazing!
The photos were deceiving. I ordered a cappuccino and it was not good. The espresso was decent but the foam was terrible. I'm not sure about sugar drinks but if you're looking for good, traditional coffee drinks then this isn't your place. It should have been a sin that on a Saturday morning it was dead and nobody was here to hang out and get coffee.
I have been a customer of The Golden Roast for over a year, and often brag about how kind the owners and staff are. They have helped me learn, and appreciate, coffee in a whole new way. I drink a large amount of coffee each week, but I drink Golden Roast the most, and look forward to it. If you’re near UT campus, or see their beans on a store shelf, I encourage you to give it a try. You’ll be getting a product that a ton of attention, care, and loving effort went in to.
grabbed a bagel and a coffee this morning from tgr. barista was super nice (mary i think was her name) and friendly. the manager (i didn’t catch her name) answered my silly question about the coffee thermalizers and generally tolerated my nonsense.

i had good time. would recommend

edit: tell mary i said hi
