The little coffee shop on French has relocated its digs after after almost 10 months of leaving its original carriage house location.
Now found in the Boardwalk on Broadway inside a sunlit greenhouse space, PRESS Coffee will open its doors for a soft opening today (Thursday) and tomorrow. The shop will open officially on September 1.
Though owners Bronson Holbrook and Natalie Nazarewicz had teased out a mobile location after closing the location on French, the couple found the new spot almost by happenstance.
"We found it last November, and waited for it to become available," Holbrook said.
The space will feature 26 seats inside, along with almost another 30 spots of patio seating available. Press will feature baked goods from Bakery Lorraine (savory), pastries by The Bread Box, and galettes and cake pops by Annie Vu of Annie's Petite Treats. Featured coffees will include Southtown's White Elephant Coffee Co., California's Caffe Luxxe, Houston's Amaya, and Barrett's out of Austin.
PRESS joins Brew's Lee Tea Station, Chocollazo, Organically Beauty Inc. and Hargrove's at the Boardwalk, which lost long-time tenant Tre Trattoria earlier this summer.
Hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday; 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
