Merit Coffee, a new coffee shop from the minds behind San Antonio’s Local Coffee, will open two locations in Dallas.

The first is set to debut at 2639 Main Street in Deep Ellum, with construction expected to begin next month. Construction on the second outpost at 4228 Oak Lawn Avenue in Highland Park will follow in December, and both locations are expected to open sometime in February. Popular restaurant designer Michael Hsu has been charged with developing the look for the “modern, light-filled” shops, decorated with warm woods, white powder-coated steel, and navy accents.

Merit Coffee co-owners Robby and Neesha Grubbs founded Local Coffee in San Antonio in 2008, and it’s since expanded to six locations across the city. The Grubbs’ also own Merit Roasting Company alongside chief financial officer Bill Ellis, and the shop will serve small-batch beans roasted by the company. No menu has been made public yet, but coffee junkies can likely look forward to a standard menu of espresso-based drinks.

Stay tuned for the official opening dates for Merit Coffee’s two Dallas locations.
