The Wild Detectives

314 W 8th, Dallas TX 75208


The Wild Detectives is halfway down an unassuming residential block of the Bishop Arts neighborhood. It's a coffee shop/bar/bookstore/performance space/what have you with the best cappuccino and a small assortment of food (breakfast tacos, Mediterranean toasts, pastries, and pies), all from nearby businesses. You can settle in at the long communal table, a regular table, or cozy up on the window bench seating. There's also a great backyard area with plenty of benches if you can stand the heat. Free wifi, outlets galore, and street parking.
