A reader asked last week what was going in the now shuttered Dirk's Coffee on Montrose. Fortunately for the over-caffeinated neighborhood, it won't be another coffee shop, but prepare to get your juice on. Austin-based Snap Kitchen, a grab-and-go health food concept, will open at 4005 Montrose Boulevard in the coming months.
According to the September issue of First Montrose Commons Historic District's newsletter. "...Snap Kitchen will soon be a part of our neighborhood when it takes over the vacancy left by Dirk's. The contract is signed and reno should begin shortly." Construction is still ongoing. Doors from bathroom stalls and other remaining traces of Dirk's could be seen outside the property and the inside.
