What a month May was! For us at Palace, it was somewhat of a blur as we learned how to live life with THREE awesome locations! It has been a whirlwind, but so much fun. If you haven’t had a chance to stop by our newest addition at 34th & Coulter, what are you waiting for? We have an amazing team of baristas ready to serve you and show you around our new space. Summer is upon us and that means a bit more of a slower pace schedule for us. We hope you also are able to enjoy a similarly slow paced summer.
We are taking a break from our public classes and cuppings for the Summer. Jarboe wrote a little about it in his latest blog if you want to read more information on that. We are taking the summer to plan out some new exciting learning experiences, stay tuned for more details on that.
New Summer Menu
Today we are rolling out our brand new Summer menu! We have both some super tasty coffee and non-coffee options for you. We just ordered a new line of syrups from Liber & Company that we couldn’t wait to experiment with. We’ve created a great line up. For the coffee lovers we have an Espresso Tonic, which consists of espresso, tonic syrup, pineapple syrup and our favorite bubbly Topochico. Or you can try a Dr. Brew, which is our incredible cold brew concentrate and, wait for it…. Dr. Pepper! We are using DP with has real cane sugar to make this beverage extra special.
If you’re not feeling the coffee love, you can also try the Summer Soda, Bella Tea or Lemon Chailo. All three of these are great options for a refreshing non-coffee beverage. Better yet, come in with 5 of your friends and everyone order one of each so you can try them all!
New June Pastries
As if the tasty beverages weren’t enough we have all new pastries for June. We now have TWO incredible bakers on our staff. Along with Elizabeth we have a new red-head on the block - Jessica! Jessica and Liz are our favorite ginger bakers and they are pulling out all the stops this month. The baked item menu is as follows: Honey & Earl Grey Breakfast Bread, Lemon Cream Scone, Croissants, Double Chocolate Éclair, Coconut Cream Turnover, and Jalepeno Popper Turnover. As always we also have our sweet and savory kolaches as options as well. You’ll definitely want to try one of each throughout the month of June. Let us know what your favorite is!
June Cause Latte: Summer Shaker benefitting High Plains Eyeglass Program
At Palace, we feel it is very important to give back to our community. Each month, we select a local non-profit and create a specialty drink to sell for that entire month. $1 of each cause drink sold goes back to that organization. In 2015, our customers gave over $2,000 to various non-profits by purchasing cause lattes! Who doesn’t want to drink a tasty drink and feel great about it?! The cause drink this month is the Summer Shaker, which is an amazing shaken beverage consisting of strawberry, vanilla, cold brew and half & half, shaken (not stirred). You’re going to love it! The High Plains Eyeglass Program is a part of the Lions Club of Amarillo and they are doing incredible things for children who are in need of eyeglasses. For more information check out their website here.
As always, we will also be out and about the city with our catering cart at various events and businesses. We have a brand spanking new catering van that we just recently had Palaceized (definition; we put a phoenix on it!) If you see us rocking the phoenix around town, be sure to honk and say hello! If you want to rock the phoenix at your next party or event, go here for info.
It’s hard to believe that we started this journey five years ago! That’s right! Palace Canyon will be five on July 1st! Palace Downtown (at the Paramount Building) will be turning two on June 11th and of course, our newest addition Palace Summit (34th & Coulter) will be turning one month on June 9th! It seems like we should celebrate! Watch for details on our Palace Birthday Bash coming soon!
