Above all else, Coffeehouse is a labor of love. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without some help from our partners. We’re dedicated to partnering with high quality local businesses, so we’ve searched Houston high and low to find the best coffee, food, and service to bring to the Rice community.
Since 2003, Katz has served some of Houston’s most highly-acclaimed and discriminating chefs and restaurant & coffeehouse owners. They specialize in small-batch, custom roasting while providing the finest coffee from our farmers around the globe. Their goal is to achieve perfection in every cup. This commitment starts with sourcing the highest quality “green” beans and the close and careful attention we take in the roasting process.
Katz is our exclusive provider of all coffee and coffee equipment. We are very lucky to have been working closely with them and serving their coffee since 2005. Coffeehouse wouldn’t be Coffeehouse without Katz!

Angela’s Oven is a family owned and operated bakery in the Houston Heights area. All of their bread and pastries and are handcrafted without the use of preservatives or dough conditioners. They use only unbleached, unbromated bread flours. They sell at many Houston area farmers markets and coffee shops, and a storefront/bakehouse in the Heights. They provide our croissants, danishes, and scones.
Kraftsmen Baking was founded by Chef Scott Tycer in 2001. Chef Tycer, from highly acclaimed restaurants such as Aries and Gravitas, saw a void in Houston’s market for fresh, artisan bread; thus Kraftsmen Baking was born. All products are lovingly made by hand, using only the finest ingredients and no chemical preservatives. The flour used is top milled and free from bleaching agents and bromate. Kraftsmen provides sticky buns, chocolate croissants, and bear claws to Coffeehouse.
Sinfull is a vegan bakery that offers quality baked goods, made from scratch, with all natural and mostly organic ingredients. Their products are so sinfull that many of our customers ask, “Is this vegan?” Yes! It’s 100% vegan, including a selection of gluten-free products. Sinfull is truly a Houston staple, and Coffeehouse is thrilled to serve their vegan cinnamon rolls and bars.
