National Coffee Day is Friday, Sept. 29, and a number of North Texas restaurants and retailers are celebrating with special offers on morning brews and, surprisingly, coffee cocktails.

La Madeleine cafés in Dallas/Fort Worth are celebrating with a free coffee offer. The French café is giving away a free regular or large drip coffee with any online or app purchase on Oct. 1. The all-day offer is limited to one redemption for each app user and is not valid for delivery.
