Fall is one of our favorite times of year! This year will be our first fall season having three locations opened. If you haven’t had a chance to stop by our newest location at 34th and Coulter recently you should come by and see what’s new! The blue temporary wall is now down opening up our space to even more seating areas. The new section of the shop has some soft seating, tables and chairs and even a conference room!
The conference room isn’t quite ready to reserve just yet, but it is getting very close. This new space is what we are referring to as the co-working space and it leads into the offices of Amarillo National Bank’s Mortgage Lending and Business Banking offices. We couldn’t be more excited to have such great neighbors! Stop in and check it out, next time you’re in the area.
We try to make each seasonal menu unique and fun. Our staff loves the process of creating, submitting, tweaking and finalizing these seasonal menus. It’s a team effort and we are excited about this season’s menu:
Maple Clove Latte
This latte uses our house-made maple clove syrup and is like fall in a cup!
Peanut Butter Cup Latte
This latte mixes chocolate with our house-made peanut butter sauce for a great take on a classic combo!
Maple Clove Steamer
Maple clove latte, hold the coffee: this steamer is made with the same great house-made syrup and is great for kids and kids at heart (or adults who have had too much coffee…if there is such a thing)
Ginger Hot Chocolate
We combine Liber & Company’s fiery ginger syrup with our signature hot chocolate and the end result is hot chocolate with a little kick!
Some things are just too good to not have in our case, so as always we will keep our sweet and savory kolaches and our oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Our baker extraordinaire, Liz, has come up with a great line up for this season including blueberry muffins, pumpkin bread, maple nut scones, and traditional cinnamon rolls. In addition to those yummy treats we will be trying out a breakfast casserole. Are you drooling yet?! Stop in and let us know what you think about the new line up!
For those of you who don’t know, we also serve brunch EVERY Saturday from 9am to noon at our Downtown location. We do a sweet and savory crepe option as well as two different quiche options. Did I mention all of this deliciousness is made fresh from scratch? Liz is the best!
We also love seeing everyone at the Community Market on Saturday mornings. If you haven’t had a chance to check that out, we highly recommend it. It happens every Saturday from 10am to 2pm right in front of the Chamber of Commerce. There are tons of great vendors and even live music. It is a great way to spend a Saturday morning! If you are out there, come say hi to us at our booth. We just might even give you a sample of coffee to fuel you for your shopping outing!
September Cause Latte: Spicy Gingerbread Latte benefitting High Plains Food Bank
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 because you are also giving back to the community?! The cause drink this month is the spicy gingerbread latte, which consists of our Liber & Co. fiery ginger syrup and brown sugar. It’s a delightful semi-sweet drink with that kick of ginger. Each cause latte sold will benefit the High Plains Food Bank, which is a wonderful organization in our community!
Other Important Dates
Monday, September 5th is a Holiday. Our Canyon and Summit shops will be opened regular hours, but our downtown location will be closed that day.

Friday, September 23rd Palace Coffee Canyon, 7pm LIVE MUSIC
Patric Johnson will be performing in the Palace room starting at 7pm.
Anyone who knows Patrick, our founder and owner, knows that he loves being on stage as much as he loves being in our shops talking to our guests! He has been a part of several shows at Amarillo Little Theater and this summer he was able to drop in and play Uncle Henry for a week in Texas the Musical! If you want to see him in action, you should check out the upcoming show at Amarillo Little Theatre, The Best Man. This show runs September 15-17 and 22-25. A side benefit to seeing the show (as if seeing Patrick weren’t enough) is that you can bring in your ticket stub to any Palace location and receive a free 12 oz. drip coffee or 25% off of a specialty drink! We love Amarillo Little Theatre and are happy to be partnering with them this season. Be sure to check out the full season here. It’s a great line up and I promise you each cast will be full of crazy talented people that live right here in your community!
