As a college student, finding a personal place to do work is crucial to achieving goals and maintaining good grades. Attending a major university can make it challenging to find a quiet or even available space to do this. Therefore, last semester I set out to find my favorite cafe study spots in the Bryan-College Station area. Here are my top three go to cafes for studying.

  1. Gough Gough Coffee: The vibes in this cafe were my favorite out of all the places I tried. There were multiple rooms with a lot of seating which made it easy to pick a spot and get to work quickly, they played the music at a good volume which made it comforting instead of distracting, and they had a large variety of coffee options which is great for late night study sessions. In addition to their stellar coffee and soothing vibe, Gough Gough has two guinea pig mascots, Vincent Van Pig and Pig Gauguin, which I thought was super cute and unique!

  1. Sweet Eugene’s: This cafe also has an incredible vibe. From the art they hang on the walls to the music they play, Sweet Eugene’s always makes me feel comfortable and motivated to work. This cafe seems to be more well known and at times can become pretty crowded. Sometimes it was challenging to find a spot, and felt like the space was more limited. However, Sweet Eugene’s has a diverse menu with a lot of coffee and food options to chose from. Overall, a great cafe with a satisfying menu and environment.

  1. POV coffee: POV has a more formal setting than the other cafes I have suggested. However, POV has my favorite coffee in the area and a large variety of food options. It is still a great option for studying, especially if you like to go study with friend. POV has a variety of seating, including booths connected to long tables which can fit larger groups of people. In addition to studying, every month POV has featured art from local artists displayed in their shop, dropping in during this time is a great way to support the local art community!
