We've hand-picked some of Oklahoma City's best coffee and tea shops for families with kids of all ages. Make a new family tradition this year to have a holiday tea with your kids at one of these spirited shops.

Why We Love It: Along with the rest of the shops along 23rd Street, Cuppies & Joe comes alive with holiday spirit each year. Adults are lured to this shop for the excellent espresso and tea beverages and kids love it for the delectable cupcakes located in a case right at their eye level.
