Meet Summer Moon Coffee — a locally owned and operated, Texas-based coffee chain that’s now open on Mills Avenue in the former Rita’s Italian Ice storefront.It’s known for its oak-roasted coffee and Moon Milk, and if you don’t know what that is, keep reading.
There are plenty of seats to get work done or chat with a friend over a cup. Take a moment to let your eyes wander: From the custom wallpaper to the cozy fireplace, you’re surrounded by creative details, including lots of pictures highlighting the oak-roasting process.
This unique sweet cream is the base of Summer Moon’s lattes. To us, it tasted a bit like melted vanilla ice cream and was delectable.
If you’re dairy-free, don’t worry. Moon Milk can be made with a dairy-free substitution (almond, oat, or coconut milk).
How to order
We ordered a Winter Half Moon Latte, which may leave you saying, “Huh?” We’re here to translate.
If you want a hot coffee, you’ll order a “Summer Moon” + iced-coffee fans will order a “Winter Moon.”
How much Moon Milk do you want to add to your coffee?:
- A “Quarter Moon” — one part Moon Milk, two parts regular milk
- A “Half Moon” — equal parts Moon Milk and regular milk
- A “Three-quarter Moon” — three parts Moon Milk, one part regular milk
- A “Full Moon” — all Moon Milk
If you’re looking for some extra flavor — a “Blue Moon” is a lavender latte, a “Mocha Moon” adds some chocolate, and a “Nitro Moon” is the Nitro Cold Brew.
The menu also features other cafe favorites like matcha, chai, Americanos, drip + more. Plus, the front counter boasts a case filled with pastries. We can’t wait to try the hand pies.
