Among the list of new restaurants and eateries to try in 2020 in Montgomery County, Heather Martin and her husband Arron are opening the first Houston location of Sweetwaters Coffee & Tea in the new Windcrest Village shopping center in Magnolia.

It’s going to be a place for everyone, Martin says.

Originally founded in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1993 by Wei and Lisa Bee near The University of Michigan, it was inspired by their love of everything food related including drinks such as teas and coffee. In Texas there are locations open in Dallas and Austin owned by other franchisee’s. The cafe has locations across the nation.

The cafe hosts a mixture of globally inspired drinks. It celebrates a classic cafe menu.

“We use real ingredients wherever we can,” she said.

For example for their strawberry drinks instead of using strawberry sweeteners they’ll use real strawberries.

Because Wei and Lisa Bee traveled the world together, they have brought different coffee and teas from regions around the world to the coffeehouse, Martin says.

So we’ll have spotlight for different artists every couple of months. And just be a really nice place to go and get away,” she said.
