Diedrich Coffee on Westheimer No More..

Last week marked the closing of the Westheimer location of Diedrich Coffee. A popular hangout for many students (such as some of my colleagues), the coffee shop had a loyal (and I mean LOYAL) following. If you were to walk in on any given day, you would recognize at least a few of the people who practically lived there.

Personally, I never frequented Diedrich to the extent that some people I know did, but I will say that the people at Diedrich know how to make coffee alot better than most of the coffee shops out there. I also found the free WiFi an added bonus, but that’s become fairly common place now. In fact, I’m at another coffee shop closer to my house that I’ve grown quite attached to.

Although some may contest that the outing of Diedrich was masterminded by their neighbors at Upper Hand, the Chronicle article attempts to explain the reasoning from the perspective of the land lord. Whether or not it’s a convincing argument is a choice that I’ll leave to the reader.

I’m sure I speak for many when I say this: after 10 years of service, Diedrich’s on Westheimer will be greatly missed.

    I too am upset with the closure of this store. I’ll never set foot on that property again out of protest for the unfair treatment Diedrich received. This is kicking a guy when he is down by some Christmas grinch.
