SUPPORT NEW AND LOCAL BUSINESSES
Check out two of our new favorite places in Amarillo for food and drinks!
Palace Coffee Co. just opened their new location in Amarillo in the Paramount Building on Polk St. Patrick Burns, and his staff are dedicated to providing a welcoming environment, along with an excellent coffee product. They predominantly serve beans from Evocation Coffee Roasters, a local company equally dedicated to their craft. Palace Coffee Co. recently won the regional competition of America's Best Coffeehouse. We are excited to have them in Amarillo and to also check out their lunch menu!
Public House features upscale comfort food along with craft cocktails, and a great beer and wine menu. This project is a collaboration between Josh Fuller (previously of OHMS), and Brian Singleton (co-owner of Crush Wine Bar & Deli). Public House is a welcomed addition to the food scene in Amarillo!
