Sweet things are on the horizon for the Fort Worth Stockyards: A Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip will bring its famous confections to the historic neighborhood, late this summer.

According to a release, the new café will be located above the "Pig Subway" at 140 East Exchange Ave. Should you be so inclined, they'll be hiring employees for the new location in the weeks ahead.

The cafe will serve cookies, customized cookie cakes, other confections, ice creams, smoothies, and cold beverages. It will also serve lunch, with savory offerings such as crepes, paninis, wraps, and flatbreads.

The café will be located in Stockyards Station. Its design will combine elements of the brand’s traditional cafés, while remaining true to the Stockyard's trademark weathered Western theme.

One of its most notable aspects will be its second-story patio that will overlook historic Exchange Avenue. There you can stand, looking down upon the minions, chocolate chip cookie in hand.

Franchisee Karen Blake says in a statement that they're excited to commence construction. "Our café will be a warm, welcoming place for locals and visitors alike to indulge in some sweet treats while enjoying the historic Stockyards," she says.

This will be the 167th Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip system-wide, and the second in Fort Worth. The first opened in Sundance Square in December 2015 as a combination cookie cafe and yogurt shop; it has since become a cafe only.

Nestlé Toll House Café by Chip is a versatile dessert and bakery café concept with kiosk, in-line mall, and street café locations. The first café opened in 2000.
