Extra-finicky Houndstooth Coffee, the Austin-born coffee shop that opened a Dallas location on Henderson Avenue in 2014, is expanding its Dallas footprint with a second branch opening at the Sylvan Thirty complex.
Houndstooth founder Sean Henry says that Sylvan Thirty's tenant mix and surrounding communities felt right. "Also, the space will allow us to host lots of different people in new ways," he says.
Slated to open in early 2016, the shop will be located in the same building as TacoDeli, immediately north of the entry driveway from Sylvan Avenue (Building E). In addition to coffee and pastries, the shop there will also feature a food concept that's new to the company and still in development.
"The space is bigger than our Henderson store; it's a pretty good size," Henry says. "We're still in process of honing the idea, but it'll be challenging ourselves and what we're capable of. It'll be something new and interesting in Dallas that's different from what we've done in Austin."Houndstooth Coffee was established in Austin in 2010 and currently operates three locations: the one on Henderson Avenue, plus two in Austin. A critical favorite, it has been called one of America's best coffee bars by Food & Wine magazine and a frequent readers' choice in Austin publications.
The headquarters for Tweed, Henry's companion coffee roasting concept, settled in the Design District in August 2014.
