A new cafe will soon open in the Evelyn Hills Shopping Center in downtown Fayetteville.

The new store, called Summer Moon Coffee, opens Saturday, September 3 at 1422 N. College Ave., in the southeast corner of the mall near Mockingbird Kitchen and Arkadia Retrocade.

The store will be the first Arkansas location for the fast-growing Austin, Texas-based chain. The new store is franchised locally by Kaitlyn Skinner and her family.

Summer Moon specializes in wood-roasted coffee, served with sweet “moon milk” cream, according to the company’s website. After starting in Austin, the company has grown to operate approximately three dozen locations across Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Wisconsin.

The chain will offer free samples on its opening day from 7 a.m., and the first 50 guests will receive a goody bag.

The shop is a short walk from where Doomsday Coffee got its start before opening a second location near Dickson Street and then closing in Evelyn Hills in 2019.

The shop will be open Monday to Friday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
