A new spot called Café Victoria is coming to Victory Park, the first coffeehouse for the 75-acre mixed-use development in downtown Dallas. [There was a coffeehouse on Victory Park Lane named Gachet that has since closed.]

"A coffee shop has been the number one request since we started implementing the retail leasing and marketing of Victory Park," said Daniel Goldware, director of leasing at Trademark. "Café Victoria is a perfect fit because it truly is a neighborhood establishment founded by one of Victory's own residents. It is also an important component of the continued activation of Victory Park Lane."

The owner is Luciana Gómez, a Victory Park resident who will also operate the shop. Café Victoria will serve premium coffee and homemade pastries. The shop is scheduled to open in January 2016 and will be located on Victory Park Lane, next to Buda Juice.

"Living in Victory Park, I saw the need for great coffee firsthand," Gómez says in a release. "It became my dream to share the taste of quality coffee in a wonderful environment with my neighborhood.

"Now, my dream is coming to life, and I am both personally and professionally invested in a community that I believe in."

Victory Park has been on an opening spree. Recent arrivals include Classic Pilates, a Pilates and Gyrotonic studio; and Buda Juice, which serves hand-squeezed organic juice on the go.

Joanna Czech Salon will open in October 2015 with a full range of skincare and nail treatments, waxing, and aesthetic services. And a fifth branch of BuzzBrews, Dallas' favorite destination for breakfast and late-night cravings, is slated to open in early 2016.

Cinépolis USA, a premier cinema, will join Victory Park in 2017.
