Galaxy Cafe will open in the former Spicewood Tavern (and before that Bistro Mirabelle) space at 8127 Mesa Dr. in Northwest Hills. It will be the fourth location from the restaurant group that also owns Zocalo Cafe and Top Notch Hamburgers. Partner Kelly Chappell said the group has eyed the neighborhood for more than a decade and tried to get the Mirabelle space about five years ago.

“It seems that everything has worked out for the best,” Chappell said. “Opening on Mesa feels like we’ve come full circle, and we could not be more excited.”

The restaurant, which will feature the same offerings as the other locations, plus a few additions Chappell says are “site specific,” is slated for a late spring/early summer opening.
