The Wine Therapist

Inside this Lakewood wine cafe, the vibe is half wine cellar/tasting room and half warm, inviting living room. There is a nice variety of comfortable seating from couches to tables and chairs, hundreds of bottles of wine displayed on the walls, and a smoke-friendly patio outside. The Wine Therapist also features a food menu designed to complement the large variety of wines, and includes items such as hummus from Café Izmir and an assortment of meats and cheeses from which to choose. Customers order wine by the bottle, by the glass, or a flight of four wines is available for $20 for those who like to sample. And if you just want a bottle for enjoying at home, those are half the price (most bottles are under $40, with the average hovering around $25). One employee says the majority of the regulars come from the surrounding Lakewood area and Lake Highlands. Also worth noting, The Wine Therapist is dog-friendly.
