Retrospect Coffee Bar

About

Retrospect Coffee Bar is a restaurant located in Houston, Texas at 3709 La Branch Street. They are open every day of the week.

Abandoned and derelict for over 40 years, the structure occasionally served as an ever-changing canvas for public art, informally curated by the Station Museum for Contemporary Art located across the street. In the summer of 2017, after a three-year renovation process, we were excited to finally share Retrospect with our neighbors. It was a labor of love to bring this concept forward, but frankly we – nor the architects, the engineers, the contractors, or even the city — had any idea that a derelict little gas station like this would present so many construction challenges! We worked hard to return the structure to its original beauty, while also meeting current city codes. A lot had changed in ninety six years! Throughout the renovation process we made a concerted effort to incorporate sustainable and energy efficient materials in the building.
