On Friday, February 28, Gianpiero Lorenzo and Dave Pedack were merely setting up chairs outside of their new cafe for a Facebook photo, when a flood of people stopped by and started enjoying the first fruits of their labor. Lorenzo, from Naples, and Pedack intended to open their brand-new sidewalk street cafe at 1520 Elm Street, aptly named Cafe Strada, quietly. But clearly that didn’t happen.
“We completely sold out of gelato!” Lorenzo tells me. On the very first day, the Euro-style cafe ran out of 20 gallons of house-made gelato. The pistachio, black cherry, and hazelnut mocha—all gone. Only a little bit of mango sorbet was left.Full Story
Today I will let the pictures do the talking, but there a few things you need to know: Mokah Coffee, housed inside the Life in Deep Ellum Cultural Center, is awesome. In Dallas, there is no shortage of quality coffee shops. You’re never more than a Frisbee toss away from fresh beans, steamed milk, and sweet pastries. For those of you more in touch than myself—which seems to be everyone—Mokah Coffee is nothing new. It’s been here for years. Even before all the so-hip-it-hurts coffee labs starting springing into action over the last two years, Mokah was already well-established.Full Story

Urban Acres transformed its nondescript warehouse into a fair-themed event space for its 2nd Annual Steward’s Dinner on Tuesday night. While the true focuses were the creative dishes prepared by local chefs and a much-anticipated talk by farmer Joel Salatin, the décor set the stage for a fun evening. With a face painter and a man on stilts, nothing could go wrong. A sign greeting attendees proclaimed the dinner a “No Waste Event.” Urban Acres takes sustainability seriously. The theme ran throughout the evening with constant reminders that everything was compostable or recyclable.Full Story

Pearl Cup has announced that it will be closing its flagship location on Henderson.
“It’s a sad day when you have to announce the closing of your first coffee shop location. We opened Pearl Cup Coffee when Henderson Avenue didn’t have much to offer other than a handful of bars. We had a hand in building the Dallas coffee culture to what it is today, and we are quite proud of that feat, but the incredibly high rents are simply not sustainable for a true coffee shop… We are very disappointed that we were unsuccessful at negotiating an affordable rent structure and that we will no longer be a part of this neighborhood.”Full Story
