Back in 2021, the City of Richardson welcomed a new resident cafe and it has been serving up with home experience and atmosphere vibes to customers according to a CW33 article from February 10. They say,
“Emblematic of its homey character, when pulling up to this shop, you will soon find out that it is not your average coffee shop. Staycation is built inside a house near downtown Richardson.
“It’s an old home, I wanted to add some class to it and some fun with the colors, but truly I wanted people to feel like they were a part of the Staycation family,” Nicole Gregory, owner of Staycation, said.
Filled with rich greens and warm earth tones throughout, Staycation’s layout makes you feel like you’re having a cup of joe as it was intended to be enjoyed, comfortable.
And it isn’t just the cozy space that Staycation evokes a sense of comfort and calm, it’s their concise menu of signature drinks. While some coffee chains overwhelm with an array of specialty drinks, Staycation keeps its menu simple and classy, with enough coffee and food options to satisfy all sorts of customers.”
What makes Staycation incredible is not just its experience and atmosphere but also its special menu gathered from different shops and unique suppliers according to a Culture Map article which reports,
“The menu includes classic coffee and espresso drinks, plus baked goods from renowned bakers including pastry chef Keith Cedotal, whom she met when they worked together at the Joule (and who won CultureMap’s 2018 Tastemaker Award for Best Pastry Chef), and Oren Salomon, founder of Starship Bagels, who will provide fresh bagels every day.
Her coffee beans are coming from Tweed, not only because they’re local but because she loves their product, company values, and their overall approach to coffee and people.
“I admire their philosophy on beans where it’s an entire relationship from the farmer to the cup,” she says. “And I also love their coffee.”
But she also may rotate in beans from respected vendors such as Victrola in Seattle.”
Nicole Gregory however, doesn’t just want this restaurant to be a mere cafe. She plans to transition her restaurant as a wine and beer place in the future.
