Welcome to UNT 101, a weekly series to prepare you to hit the ground running for your new life at UNT. We've interviewed Eagle Ambassadors (read: UNT aficionados) about everything from the best places to study to the best music venues in town. Let their answers be your guide to joining the Mean Green family.
Every college student needs a caffeine boost from time to time. Here are some of the Ambassadors favorite places in Denton to grab a cup of Joe:
Also one of our Ambassadors' favorite places to eat off campus, Loco Café serves up all sorts of customized coffee options at their location three blocks north of Denton Square.
West Oak Coffee Bar
On the north edge of the Square you'll find West Oak Coffee Bar with a menu of barista specialties and walls displaying works by local artists.
Seven Mile Café
A couple of blocks west of Loco Café down Congress Street you'll find Seven Mile Café and the Seven Mile Coffee Company, where you can get everything from cold brews to espressos.
Shift Coffee serves espressos, lattes and pour-over coffee at their location on Locust Street four blocks south of the Square.
Located across Hickory Street from the Language Building, Aura Coffee serves Counter Culture Coffee in addition to teas, smoothies and local baked goods.
The service really sets Zera Coffee apart, as it is entirely run by volunteers and all profits go to Denton Freedom House. They serve coffee with a cause at their locations a couple of blocks northeast of the Square.
