219 W. Oak St.
Denton, TX 76201
Known for its hand-pulled espresso, homemade and handmade food and choice beer selection, Banter is a family-owned and -operated bistro with a coffeehouse aesthetic near the square in downtown Denton. Banter's walls feature a revolving assortment of creations by area artists, and its stage features a rotating cast of mostly local bands and artists. Thursdays are open-mic nights. Because it's situated between Texas Woman's University and the University of North Texas, Banter is often filled with students, study groups and, at times, entire classes. But Banter is just as popular with townies. There are patio tables and chairs out front, and seating ranging from comfy couches to folding chairs inside.
