Merit Coffee sells their own beans and the interiors are designed by Austin architect Michael Hsu.
Make the most of this Father's Day with a full day of celebration, from coffee to cocktails.
This San Antonio-based brand has two locations in Dallas—one in Highland Park and one in Deep Ellum. The wood and powder-coated steel elements in the Michael Hsu-designed spots yield a warm but clean vibe, and little seating alcoves create moments of privacy, perfect for working while sipping on Merit’s house-roasted beans. Pressed Juicery juices, pastries from Bisou Bisou Pâtisserie and Taco Deli breakfast tacos balance the mix. meritcoffee.com

Rado DiaMaster Thinline Ceramos
As the master of modern watch design, this Rado DiaMaster is beguiling in its simplicity. The rose gold tone and minimalist approach evoke timelessness and elegance. But that’s only part of the story: The true modernity of this watch is in the materials. The 41 mm polished case is wrought from Ceramos, a unique-to-the-brand alloy of 90 percent ceramic to 10 percent metal, which delivers the appearance of polished metal, but has the scratch-resistance, durable sheen and light weight of a high-tech compound ceramic. The automatic movement sports a 64-hour power reserve and 150 feet of water-resistance. $2,250, Macy’s, Galleria Dallas, macys.com; Marc Samuels Jewelers, Grapevine Mills, marcsamuelsjewelers.com; rado.com
