Newsletter reader Lauren gives us a behind-the-scenes look into East End, known for its hip coffee shops, eateries and arts scene. Let’s go!

From Warehouse to Community Hotspot

What was once a warehouse at 3401 Harrisburg Blvd is now a multi-use complex housing a mix of excellent small businesses, including Popston and Little Red Box Grocery, a pint-sized grocery store with outsized inventory.

A Haven for Cyclists

Dedicated and protected bike lanes make the East End one of the easiest neighborhoods to get around safely by bike, whether traversing Polk Street as part of an organized group ride or headed to the Brays Bayou Greenway Trail.

Good Eats

Check out newer darlings like Street to Kitchen Thai, Cochinita & Co inside of Kickin' Kombucha, and Harris County General Store BBQ. There's something for everyone throughout the East End.

Coffee Connoisseurs

Home to a longstanding coffee plant and Greenway Roasters, it's no surprise that there are many excellent coffee shops in the neighborhood to get a caffeine fix in different ways. Coffee and a board game are on tap at Coral Sword, Bohemeo's is still a local artist hub, Segundo Coffee Lab at the Ironworks offers delicious tacos and tortas, and Xela makes it easy to grab and go.
