The circa 1920s gas station is less than 300 square feet in total, but features a large covered seating area in the front, and an even larger shaded, pet-friendly garden in the back.

Stop in for espresso drinks pulled by hand on their fantastic Slayer machine with beans from local roasters. In addition to coffee drinks, Retrospect also serves teas, Texas craft beer, wines, mimosas, and soft drinks.

And if you come hungry, take heart because muffins and pastries are baked in-house daily and the shop carries an extensive crepe and panini menu with vegetarian and vegan options.
