A lot has happened in the past few weeks. A lot. The building at 109N Columbus is made over beautifully. The pantry, refrigerator and freezers are stocked. Coffee and espresso bins are full. Grinders and coffee and espresso machines are calibrated–tastings are happening daily. Menu’s are refined. The space is decorated. Front porch is inviting.
And this. Little Stevie, the gelato king of East Texas, has been cranking out house-made gelato well into the night. The case is full of cookies-n-cream, dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee and lotus flavored espresso. This is the real deal. Stevie wrote these recipes personally–perfected over years of refining his craft in San Antonio and Austin. We are lucky to have him. The legacy of his gelato recipes will be given the respect they deserve and will serve the community for years to come.
Today we did a little family and friends gig to shake out a few flaws. Measure our worth. See if we are ready for prime time. We are close. Damn close.
Shannon and the crew rocked the back-of-house cranking out breakfast burritos, biscuits and gravy, sandwiches, French toast and even a dish of Shakshuka.
Steven handled gelato, coffee & espresso and made sure everything clicked. Customers were fed. Coffee was drank and you could sense the future of community taking shape.
You may want to stop by on Thursday. We will be taking the leap on that day. And so any day thereafter. 5:30am to 9:00pm.
Come by. We will be here.
