One big hidden café in East Dallas is expanding to include Chi Chi Uptown: White rock coffeethe local coffee shop and roastery, will open a location in the Rosewood Court office tower, serving coffee, pastries, lunches and desserts to tenants and the surrounding community.
According to the statement, the store will open in early fall 2022, at 2101 Cedar Springs Rd. Number 130, next to the main Rosewood Court lobby.
Rick Perdue, president of Rosewood Property, owner of the building, says the site’s business audience, local and international clients as well as neighbors from Uptown will give White Rock Coffee a new kind of show.
“White Rock Coffee is quickly becoming a local favorite in Dallas, and we are thrilled to add it to the other restaurants and offerings in Rosewood Court,” Purdue says. “Rosewood Court’s prime location in the heart of Uptown will be a great opportunity for White Rock Coffee to serve their coffee and desserts to a larger audience.”
Other on-site restaurants and offerings include the healthy Flower Child Restaurant and Tipsy Alchemist, and the trendy cocktail bar.
White Rock Coffee was founded in 2005 by Nancy and Bob Baker, who opened their first Memorial Day weekend location at the former Churches Chicken at 10105 E. Northwest Hwy. in lake heights. They have since opened a drive-through tour of Lakewood, a location in Preston Hollow at 5930D Royal Ln. They also founded a coffee roasting operation called Brew Factory, where they host informational classes on topics such as how coffee tastes.
Later this summer, they opened a store in University Park across from SMU at 6715 Hillcrest Ave. , in the former Pearl Cup Coffee space.
They have become the standard in Dallas for what “local coffee shop” means, as every time a chain opens a location, people inevitably say, “I’d rather have White Rock coffee there.”
They will bring that local vibe to Rosewood Court, where their space will feature a variety of seating and beverage areas, both espresso based and cold brew. They will also serve breakfast, lunch and dessert made in their commercial bakery.
“Rosewood Court is a wonderful destination for office and community tenants alike, and we believe it is a perfect fit for our coffee and culture,” the couple said in a statement.
