Austin-Based Houndstooth Coffee Will Rock East Dallas in Early 2013

Sorry, Oak Cliff. Sorry, Rob Shearer. East Dallas is starting to look a little more hip than Oak Cliff these days.

Cane Rosso announced last month that it’s planting its second location there, and now word comes that Houndstooth Coffee, a coffee-serious bar and shop based in Austin, is opening a 1450 square foot space on the southeast corner of Skillman and Oram.

Dallas native Sean Henry opened his first Houndstooth Coffee in Central Austin, but now he’s bringing his carefully curated coffee selection (which includes Cuvee, Counter Culture, and Madcap Coffee), at least two espresso options, and three brewed-by-cup coffees offered any given day to his hometown. Houndstooth also offers muffins and croissants, along with a beer and wine list for those of you not into coffee. We’re pretty sure that you will be, though, especially with the Houndstooth baristas guiding you through a special customization process that’ll ensure your becoming one of their patrons forever and ever.
