Fort Worth is feeding its caffeine addiction, first the news that Ascension Coffee is opening a branch in the fall and now the announcement that Avoca Coffee Roasters will debut its second location on June 6.
Located in the West 7th District at 835 Foch St., this new Avoca will spotlight cold brew coffee on tap, which can be enjoyed in the cafe, to-go, or in refillable growlers that will be available for purchase. Some days you just need a growler full of coffee.
There will also be an expanded selection of bakery treats from local favorites Boopa’s Bagels, McKinley Bakery & Cafe, Stir Crazy Baked Goods, and Swiss Pastry Shop, plus vegan pastries from Spiral Diner.
Founders Garold LaRue and Jimmy Story chose to open another location because many of their friends, fellow local business owners, and wholesale clients are located in the West 7th area.
“The community has supported Avoca since we opened our doors on Magnolia,” says Story in a release. “We’re excited for the opportunity to open on the other side of town to serve more locals.”
The 2,000-square-foot space will have an industrial feel with distressed concrete floors, an open floor plan, and painted murals from artist Kelsey Heimerman. Soft banquette-style benches designed by Charles Alan paired with PalletSmart-designed tables are inside, with PalletSmart picnic tables on the patio. Oh yes, there will be a covered patio, with garage doors that can be fully raised for al fresco sipping.
Worker bees especially can get their buzz on at this new Avoca, as the owners promise there will be plenty of electrical outlets.
Avoca expanded to Dallas in late 2015, taking over the former Pearl Cup location in the lobby of St. Paul Place.
The Foch Street location will be open Monday through Saturday from 7 am-10 pm and Sunday from 7 am-6 pm.
