Dallas’ Ascension Coffee Hits Houston Next Year

The Australian-influenced cafe will arrive in Summer 2018

Ascension, a Dallas coffee shop with a full menu and wine list, is bringing its casually gourmet vibe to Houston next summer.

Owner Russell Hayward, originally from Sydney, Australia, brought an Aussie approach to coffee when he opened his first Ascension location in Dallas five years ago, and now he’s bringing it to Houston, reports CultureMap. Since opening his first shop in Dallas, Hayward has opened two additional locations in the area, but the Houston outpost is Ascension’s first major move outside of the metroplex.

The chain sources its high-quality coffee locally, but Ascension offers more than just caffeination. A large farm-to-table menu, available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, features dishes like croque madame eggs benedict, along with a selection of wines.

The café is slated to be the first restaurant in the Heights Waterworks development, which sits at the northeast corner of 19th Street and Nicholson. Fortunately for fitness enthusiasts, Ascension’s patio will be just a stone’s throw away from Heights Hike and a nearby bike trail. Ascension is scheduled to open in June or July of 2018.
