Denton Square’s Jupiter House will soon be back in business after damage from a devastating blaze kept the coffee shop shuttered since last December.
Owners Amy and Joey Hawkins told NBC DFW that their shop at 106 North Locust Street has been undergoing massive renovations over the last nine months and will be ready to debut in January, about a year after it closed its doors. The blaze responsible for the damage began the day after Christmas in the mini mall next door, completely leveling that building and damaging several adjacent buildings, according to NBC DFW’s reporting. The Hawkins told the TV station that they expected to reopen a couple of weeks later, but the damage was so extensive from smoke, water, and asbestos that the interiors had to be completely gutted.
Jupiter House has been located on the Square for the past 11 years, making it a veritable institution in Denton caffeine culture for its array of coffee-based beverages alongside fresh juices, smoothies, and baked goods. The Hawkins’ other concept Royal’s Bagels and Deli at 503 West University landed on Eater’s map of the best places to eat in Denton.
