The Roastery, a chic new coffee shop and cafe from a power team of NYC chefs, has debuted its third Houston location.

The fledgling chain’s new “flagship” outpost just opened adjacent to the H-E-B grocery store at 5895 San Felipe Street in the Galleria area. This new location will occupy a seriously massive 7,600 square feet in the space, which, according to a press release, is 7 times the size of the other Houston-area outposts of the Roastery. It will also be the only restaurant in Houston to boast its own Giesen coffee roaster, which will perfectly toast the shop’s coffee beans in full view of diners in the restaurant.

In addition to the coffee and teas on offer, the Roastery will also offer a menu of sandwiches, pastas, pizzas and more developed by former Alice Blue chef Kent Domas and culinary director Matt Johnson. Gulf shrimp and grits, a crawfish riff on the classic lobster roll, and confit duck wings are also on the menu, along with local brews, coffee-spiked cocktails, wine, and other libations.

The Roastery’s arrival in Houston’s favorite grocery store has been swift, with locations opening in Bellaire and the Heights in October 2018 and January 2019, respectively. This newest outpost is officially open on San Felipe Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
