Via Yelp:

  • “I’m a spoiled Seattleite, and I was suffering withdrawal symptoms after going without my Starbucks fix for a few days. To make matters worse, it snowed in Fort Stockton, so I seriously needed a good hot drink. The Garage was like a coffee oasis for me. I got an excellent latte and delicious chocolate hazelnut biscotti. So good!”
  • “Great coffee and great customer service!  They give you a lot of flavors to choose from. …  I’ll definitely be back.”
  • “We’d been driving all morning without a decent cup of coffee.  We found The Garage when we pulled into Ft. Stockton and my phone once again had data.  It was the only coffee shop around so w gave it a try.  We were not disappointed.  The owners gave wonderful service and the coffee was excellent.  Whether you live in Ft. Stockton or are passing through I recommend checking out The Garage Coffee Shop.”
  • “Wow… This is not just good coffee by Ft. Stockton standards, but by my wife and I and our picky coffee snobbery. … highly recommend their brew.”
  • “Great coffee … & a big punk rock style venue hidden in the back. A MUST stop on that long lonesome road.” [spelling edited]
  • “Huge coffee selection. Really cool shop. Super friendly staff. Delicious coffee! You will not be disappointed!”
  • “Great coffee shop with very good coffee. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location near Fort Stockton historical town.”
  • “Finally something different and good in this town. Great coffee great atmosphere and great staff. If you haven’t been here yet go it’s worth it.”
  • “As the name epics, it’s a quirky little place that was a garage at one time. Their coffee and tea menu is extensive, with a large selection of flavors. Don’t expect a food menu, although there are a few packaged choices. We had slice lemon pound cake, it was buttery and delicious. Well worth the visit!!”
  • “Loved the ambiance of this place! Super chill and happy staff. Spacious area to work with a laptop. Spent 3 hours here during my cross country road trip.”
  • “Great customer service very friendly good prices!”
  • “Driving through Texas back to Austin we needed a little pick me up. To my great surprise, Yelp told me of a little coffee shop just off the highway, in what felt like the middle of nowhere. The reviews I read, were favorable so we went for it. The building was well kept and the owners were pleasant and friendly. We got a French Roast which was fantastic and a soy latte which was yummy. The bathroom was clean too. We will be back on our next trip through. Thanks!!!!”
  • “Passing through on the road trip home and saw all the great reviews, and had to stop for an espresso pick-me-up! It was as described- a great latté, convenient to stop at while passing through. (Grateful for clean bathrooms and a cute place of a solid cup of Jo!)”
  • “If this coffee and music spot were in any other bigger town or city, it would be a guaranteed hit. The Garage is an obligatory stop for any coffee lover on their way to or back from El Paso, Marfa/Alpine/Ft. Davis, or New Mexico, Big Bend, the Davis Mountains, or the Guadalupe Mountains. Simply put, Fort Stockton is so darn lucky to have such a great coffee shop. The Garage may just be the very best business in all of Fort Stockton, and I wish that I lived closer so that I could become a regular customer.The Garage’s concept is simply, yet seamlessly effective: the owners have taken an old auto repair garage and parts store, cleaned the heck out of it, and turned it into one cool coffeehouse … with an attached live music venue. The comfortable, tasteful furniture and decorations balance out the metal and skulls adorning the walls. This jewel of a place has a welcoming, yet eclectic feel: gears on the walls and camshafts on the concrete floor pay homage to this building’s past life as a car repair shop, live music in an adjoining venue complete with performance stage and wall placards honoring visiting musicians. However, let’s not loose sight of the piece de resistance: the grand coffee and espresso. The Garage employs beans from Big Bend Coffee Roasters in the making of their coffee and drinks. If you like coffee, take home a bag of the Davis Mountains blend. You will be very pleasantly surprised at the lightly sweet, nutty flavor of these beans.If you want my suggestion, try either a cup of Vienna roast coffee (if available) or the very appropriately named churro latte, which features brown sugar cinnamon and cupcake flavors. Honest to goodness, it really tastes like a good ol’ fashioned churro.Next time you are driving through the harsh, open expanses of West Texas, stop by Fort Stockton and avail yourself of The Garage’s drinks and welcoming atmosphere. God, I wish this place were in San Antonio or Austin.”
  • “We stop in for a great cup of java whenever going to or returning from Big Bend area.  Charming and helpful staff.  Fancy espresso machine is most impresso!!!!  And not just coffee!”

  • “The garage is interesting facility not only is it a coffee house but it’s a performance place where there’s music and crowds every Saturday night. We make a habit of coming for coffee every time we come through this section of the Southwest. The staff is from a group of people who got this idea to have a little coffee house and a little performance area and they have done well and they continue to dress the place up. Each time we come I can tell it is been upgraded just a wee bit here in a wee bit there always clean always nice good coffee friendly people nice conversation and what more did you want out of a coffee house. Check it out for yourself sit on the comfy couch and enjoy your coffee and chat with the lady who runs the place and hear a story or two. We love it”

  • “What a fun place! Live music in the weekends, board games, and lattes with ghost peppers!?!! Stopped by in the way to and from Big Bend when passing through. Not far off the path, definitely worth the detour. Coffees and lattes were great, did not try the food, and the staff was great. The selection of flavors leaves you with a bit of analysis paralysis, thankfully they have a few concoctions made up to choose something fun and different. Great hours and definitely a different look than your typical chain coffee shop! Hope to have some time to play next time we pass through.”
