We love this place! Good iced coffee, good people watching, and a very Marfa-y vibe going on – aka sort-of half-finished looking.
This place has great Italian food, and a comfy atmosphere.
We’ve unfortunately never been here before, but it has always been on our list of places to visit.
We’ve never been here, but it looks AMAZING and we wish we had made time for it on our last trip.

If you are planning to make a road trip out of your journey to Marfa, godspeed and mazel tov! It’s a fun trip. Graham and Marika made the trip all the way from Cleveland to Marfa on their first trip out, and it was a great one. A few helpful distances if you’re driving: Austin to Marfa: 6 hours Dallas to Marfa: 7 hours Cleveland to Marfa: 24 hours San Francisco to Marfa: 20 hours Los Angeles to Marfa: 14 hours New Orleans to Marfa: 13 hours Denver to Marfa: 12 hours
There are two airports about equidistant from Marfa. They are El Paso Airport (ELP) and Odessa/Midland Airport (MAF). You can fly into either and then rent a car to drive to Marfa. It’s about a 3-hour drive from either airport to Marfa, although Graham and I have usually done it in a bit less. Most standard car rental companies have offices in both airports.
You’ll be coming here anyway, so worry not, but this place is really incredible, and worth spending time wandering through on your own.
This place is a Marfa classic. And yes, that IS who you think it is.
