Beloved suburban coffee shop White Rhino Coffee will soon open its first location inside Dallas.
Permit applications with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission indicate that White Rhino Coffee will open at 233 West 7th Street in the Bishop Arts District, and the coffee shop’s website confirms that expansion. There’s also a mixed alcoholic permit application for something called “The Side Bar,” from White Rhino’s owners at that same location, which indicates that a boozy expansion is in the works.
White Rhino first opened its doors in Cedar Hill in 2007 and has since expanded to three locations in the far-flung Dallas suburbs, adding Waxahachie and Red Oak in the twelve years since its debut. The shop has earned a loyal following thanks to its creatively flavored lattes, like the Mint Condition (white chocolate, mint, vanilla) and Hug In A Cup (caramel, Irish cream, mint). Traditional lattes and espresso drinks are also on offer, along with drip coffee, Japanese iced coffee, cold brew, and a pretty lengthy list of teas.
Eater has reached out to White Rhino Coffee for more details on its debut, but expect it to open sometime in “early 2019.”
