Dunn Bros Coffee Celebrates Grand Opening This Weekend

Gables 5th Street Commons is proud to welcome Austin’s newest coffee shop, Dunn Bros Coffee, with Grand Opening festivities July 27 – 28. From 6:30am to 10:00pm, Dunn Bros Coffee will celebrate its opening with free samples, food and drink specials, a raffle for store items and gift cards every hour, live coffee roasting and live local music.

“I’m excited to open my first coffee shop,” owner Larry Lanoue said, “it feels like I’ve made a second home. The past few years of planning and hard work seem like a distant dream now and it brings a smile to my face every time a customer tells me how homey our coffee shop feels to them. It is exactly what I hoped to create; a warm and inviting community meeting place for Austin.”

To kick off the weekend, Dunn Bros Coffee will giveaway gift cards that range from $2 - $100 to the first 101 people on each day of the grand opening. Any customer who chooses to “recharge” their card with $25 will get a free beverage of their choice. There will be $3 off any pound of beans and two-for-one specialty drinks.

Featured handcrafted beverages include fine brewed coffees, handcrafted lattes, blended and iced specialties including the IceCrema flavored frappe and blended fruit smoothies and the Infinite Black Cold Press Coffee.
