Doubleshot is god tier.
This is why they have all my money. I spent a shameful amount on Doubleshot’s coffee and pastries, but it is undoubtedly the best coffee shop and bakery located in Tulsa. Yes, I know I can’t exactly promise this because I technically haven’t visited every single coffee shop in Tulsa, but when you know, you know.
Hopefully at some point I’ll be able to try all the coffee shops in Tulsa, but I have a bad habit of vowing to visit cool shops or restaurants, only to fail to do so in a reasonable time frame. I had been eyeing Doubleshot for a few years, but over the summer, I decided to try their coffee and pastries for the first time.
This was mid-pandemic, so my mother and I decided to make a trip to pick up our order curbside. Honestly, not a bad experience. The employees were friendly as they handed off our hot coffees and a cache of pastries and bread. We took it to a nearby park, devoured it and that was that. I was hooked.
Since then, I have visited Doubleshot many times and always rely on them for rich espresso and freshly baked scones, muffins, pumpkin bread and more. I typically get an iced Americano with a splash of oat milk when I go and whatever scrumptious baked good catches my eye that day.
Out of the things I’ve tried, the most notable was a cherry lime scone. Usually, I find that scones are dry and unappetizing, but this one was flaky and tender. Each bite revealed a plump cherry, whose flavor was heightened by the fresh lime zest in the icing.
I honestly recommend trying anything and everything from Doubleshot. I haven’t had a bad order yet from them. If it’s your first time, I recommend starting with a hot or iced coffee (with your choice of milk or non dairy substitute, if that’s what you like) and a chocolate chip cookie or slice of pumpkin bread.
The cookies are freshly baked and have the perfect balance of chewiness and crispiness. The chocolate pairs especially well with a hot coffee or cappuccino. The pumpkin bread appears to be a staple at Doubleshot, because every time I’ve been, it’s proudly lined up in the display case. And for good reason. It’s amazing. Forget pumpkin season, you’ll want to eat that year-round after you take a bite.
Doubleshot is also just a really cool coffee shop. The owners repurposed an old barn and incorporated some of the original materials into the new building. This gives Doubleshot a rustic yet modern vibe. The roastery is in the back, so you know the beans are fresh. Both the lower and upper seating areas feature large, spacious windows that you can stare out at and watch the world go by.
Right now, we need to do our part to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, which makes dining in restaurants for coffee shops unsafe, unless they are limiting the number of people and spreading out the tables.
Doubleshot is one of the more spacious coffee shops in Tulsa, so as long as there aren’t a lot of people in there, you might be able to snag a spot for a quick coffee break. But if not, you can always take your order to Woodward Park, which is located just a few minutes away from Doubleshot, or enjoy your coffee and treats from the comfort of your home.
