Numinous Coffee Roasters

Coffee House | Sandwich Shop | Small Town Café
Worth a return

Just off the main road in Marble Falls sits Numinous Coffee Roasters. It’s a single-story house nestled among beautiful trees. Inside, the mood is calm and welcoming.

We’re greeted by a friendly young man who shares that all the baked goods are made in-house, including rosemary sourdough and pizza by the slice, which sits in one of the cases, gently steaming from the oven. We’re tempted, but decide to go for two sandwiches. We throw in a couple cookies, too. For research!

Our barista whips up a fine cup of coffee from beans roasted here. In fact, we take a seat next to the huge roaster while our sandwiches are made in back. Meanwhile, I can’t help but taste the cookies. The cinnamon apple molasses cookie, with perfectly crisp edges and soft, chewy insides, sports deep flavors of apple, nutmeg, and molasses, and just a hint of salt. The peanut butter chocolate chip seems at first seems almost crumbly. But the trick is to just take a huge bite into the center. It over-indexes on the chocolate chips, which is always a win.

The sandwiches are presented like they’ve been brought out of the kitchen at a friend’s house. Their white plates are arrayed with pickled baby carrots and greens dressed with garlicky dressing. The Reuben comes on rosemary sourdough that is chewy and fresh, pressed just enough that the cheese is melted and the 1,000 Islands dressing gets gooey. The corned beef is thinly sliced.

A turkey Sriracha sandwich comes on light, almost crumbly white bread. The spice of the Sriracha plays nicely with the sweet, tangy crunch of pickled onions. Turkey, cheese, and greens round things out.

Numinous also has scones, a beautiful sourdough loaf that’s all-too-tempting, and homemade English muffins. It’s hard not to get them all to go, but we still have some of our sandwiches left. Those cookies don’t make it out of the cafe, though.

Just above the cream and sugar is a dry-erase board with the meaning of numinous written in red: the feeling of being in the presence of something greater than yourself. It’s lofty, but the space is certainly lovely enough. Locals traipse in and out, some in cowboy boots, others on their way to the nearby school.
