Black-Owned Music-Themed Vegan Coffee Shop Opens in Houston This Weekend

A new concept that blends coffee, vegan food, and music will make its debut in Houston, Texas on Juneteenth.

This weekend, the owners of Houston Sauce Co and Houston Sauce Pit—Chasitie and Courtney Lindsay—will open Mo’ Better Brews, a music-themed vegan coffee shop. The husband-and-wife duo created the concept in partnership with DJ and ethnomusicologist Flash G. Parks, who helped curate the vinyl collection that will be featured at the shop.

All About the Coffee, Vegan Food, and Vinyl

“My husband and I have been planning this concept for years now,” Chasitie Lindsay told VegOut. “In that time, the idea evolved into something bigger than what we originally had planned. Mo’ Better Brews is all about the coffee, vegan food, and vinyl. With Courtney being an amazing vegan chef, and myself being a former DJ and record collector, we figured this was the perfect combination! We brought in DJ Flash G. Parks to curate the vinyl shop and [to] collaborate on throwing events for the patio in the evening hours [and for] weekend brunches.”

100% Vegan Breakfast Menu

The uniquely developed breakfast menu features breakfast items such as hot honey shrooms & grits (chik’n fried shrooms tossed in spiced agave syrup over a bed of grits), Cajun croissants (Boudin rice-stuffed croissant topped with mushroom cream sauce), and Johnny Nash Sweet Potato Hash (sweet potato hash with kale, quinoa, and black beans).

“The showstopper, of course, is the amazing food! People will be amazed at how it’s all 100% vegan! My favorite menu item so far is the Bootsy Bagel & Lox, and other faves include Peach Cobbler Waffles as well as the Mo’ Better Breakfast Combo! Then there’s the coffee, which we collaborated with local Black-owned roasters, Three Keys Coffee, who created our own Mo’ Better Brews blend called Bleek & Indigo (Ethiopian & Colombian Coffee Beans),” said Chasitie.

Music Vibes

In addition to vegan eats, Mo’ Better Brews will feature a shelf with a collection of vinyl records that guests can browse through and purchase. The walls inside the shop are also decorated with vinyl recorded by local artists (some of which are for sale) as well as original show flyers from the 1940s and 1950s. The Lindsays plan to keep the music vibes going by hosting live music shows, open mic nights, poetry nights, and other events on the shop’s outdoor patio.

Grand Opening Debut

Mo’ Better Brews will make its grand opening debut on Saturday, June 19 from 7:30am-6pm. The shop is located at 1201 Southmore Blvd in the Museum District section of Houston’s Greater Third Ward.
