Standpipe Coffee House was a vision that a small group of people had as part of an effort to revitalize downtown Lufkin, Texas and bring business back to the heart and soul of our fair city. The idea was to create a place that offered an atmosphere for people to gather, to interact, to make conversation, to see good art, to hear great music, & drink fantastic coffee.
Standpipe derives it's name from a historical landmark that was once part of the town's skyline. "In 1891, the city built in the center of Cotton Square, a water storage tank that came to be known as “The Standpipe.” The storage tank was constructed of rectangular sheets of steel, bolted together to form a circular tank, 12 feet by 100 feet, with a capacity of 84,600 gallons." (via Lufkin Daily News) They say the view from the pipe gave a fantastic panoramic look at the town.
Standpipe Coffee serves traditional coffee as well as specialty drinks such as, cappuccinos, blended drinks, iced coffees, lattes, espressos, iced tea, soft drinks, Italian sodas, smoothies and various pastries. They host live music events every Friday & Saturday as well as other monthly activities for your entertainment.
