Ft Worth Coffee Shop Dons Daisy Dukes

by Crave Staff

Coffee Dreamers of Texas, a relatively new coffee shop located on the west side of Fort Worth at 750 Alta Mere Dr. just north of Ridgmar Mall, which opened its doors in November 2011, brewed not only coffee, but also a lot of controversy by having their baristas wear a “Daisy Duke” type of uniform which exposed the employees midriffs. 

Coffee Dreamers owners, husband and wife team Kim and John Holland, say they wanted a Texas themed outfit for the baristas to wear, but it appears some of the female patrons don’t care for the uniform. John said “We never intended to offend anyone with the uniform”.     Continue reading

by Steven Doyle       photos by Robert Bostick

It has been four months since we first discovered the new Coffee House Café  located at 6150 Frankford off Preston in Dallas. Since then the coffee house has experienced some growth and major success in their outpost in far North Dallas. Single mom and first time restaurant owner Carrie Kelleher stays very busy attending to the daily operations to keep the successful momentum rolling.

When Kelleher first opened she was determined to stay a breakfast and lunch spot. This worked fairly successfully and she was pleased with the hours since she has two young ones to tend to in the evenings. But her customers were a bit more demanding. They wanted dinner service. They wanted a place to hang out and do their work, converse with friends and generally relax.         Continue reading
