A beloved Denton-born breakfast chain continues its mini-expansion with a new location coming soon to Fort Worth.

Seven Mile Cafe, the healthy-ish restaurant noted for its grand breakfasts and vegan-friendly fare, will open a location in Far North Fort Worth, at 6300 North Fwy., in what was previously a Brick House Tavern location, which has been closed for more than a year.

Staffers hint that the restaurant may open in March, but owner Kevin Klingele is a little more reluctant to commit.

"We will be coming to North Fort Worth soon," he says. "I hate to be held to a date but we are working on it."

Kevin and his wife Josi founded Seven Mile Cafe in Denton in 2011. The couple moved here from San Francisco and named the restaurant after Seven Mile Beach in the Grand Cayman Islands, where they honeymooned.

They're known for fantastic breakfasts, with numerous benedicts and 10 kinds of pancakes, including their signature pancake sampler comes with three different flavored pancakes: buttermilk, blueberry, and red velvet. They also serve lunch and offer numerous vegan options.

All of that makes them pretty cutting-edge since bountiful breakfasts and vegan food have become two of the biggest trends in dining in recent years.

"Josi is vegan also and we make an enormous effort to offer a wide variety of vegan options on our menu," Kevin says.

The couple has since opened locations in Highland Village and more recently Keller, which opened in late 2016, as well as with a separate coffee shop in Denton.
