Maybe we've not been drinking enough coffee to stay sharp, but it appears North Campus coffee shop La Tazza Fresca closed without notice in May.

The coffee shop at 519 W. 37th St. featured a leafy outdoor patio and had been around since 2003. La Tazza Fresca's location abuts Groovy Automotive, and an employee there told the American-Statesman that the lube shop owners plan to open a cafe and bar (serving coffee and alcohol) by the end of September.

The employee also mentioned there was rumor that La Tazza Fresca would be opening a cafe on Burnet Road in the future but had no other details.

The website for the Texas Secretary of State shows a listing for a corporation called La Tazza Fresca 2, Inc., with the same registered agent as the original. We will update this post as we get more information.
