Last August, reported that Avoca Coffee Roasters, which opened on Magnolia Avenue in 2011, would be opening a second location on Foch Street in Fort Worth’s busy West Seventh Street corridor. Nearly 10 months after that announcement, the Foch location is about to come to fruition.

Avoca announced Wednesday morning that it will open at 835 Foch St. on Monday, June 6. One of the big draws will be the debut of Avoca’s cold brew on tap, available either in house or in take-home growlers.

Aside from various teas and, of course, coffee, the 2,000-square-foot new location will have an expanded pastry/bakery selection, featuring treats from such Magnolia neighbors as Stir Crazy Baked Goods and vegan haven Spiral Diner (across the street from the original Avoca) as well as food from Boopa’s Bagel Deli and McKinley’s Fine Bakery & Cafe

According to a rlease, Avoca founders Garold LaRue and Jimmy Story chose to open the location because many of their friends, fellow local business owners and wholesale clients are located in the West 7th area. The new space will feature murals by Kelsey Heimerman along the shop’s main wall as well as the hallway leading from the front entrance into the main seating area.

Charles Alan designed the banquette-style benches that make up the indoor seating. The new space will also feature a covered patio with garage doors that can be raised for outdoor sipping. PalletSmart designed the indoor and outdoor tables. And this will come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the original avoca, but there will be lots of electrical outlets for people who want to bring their laptops or other devices in for work or study.

According to the release, the new location has added 15 jobs to the local economy. It will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. For updates, check out Avoca Coffee Roasters on Facebook.
