Come Spring Break, the San Antonio Botanical Garden
will look seriously different. After showcasing its new digs last October, the garden is still working to unveil the Family Adventure Garden with 15 new areas this spring. Along with those updates, coffee lovers will be able to find a new caffeination station with the opening of Rosella
at the Garden in the Sullivan Carriage House.
Technically in the works since October, Rosella at the Garden is part of the coffee company's aggressive expansion that includes Rosella at the Rand, a mini Rosella at H-E-B Alon Market, and a Rosella at Methodist Hospital in the Medical Center. Two more locations are planned for H-E-B at Lincoln Heights and in Southtown.
Rosella at the Garden will take up the entire first floor of the Carriage House, including the footprint of the former gift shop. The new shop will carry over some items from the flagship on Jones, while adding lighter salads by chef Rafael Pena, and a full liquor license. According to owner Charles Gonzalez, hours will vary from the Garden.
Indoor seating, he guestimates, will be around 40 or 50 with 35 or more seats available on the patio.
Rosella first opened in early 2014 off Jones Ave.
