The new restaurant will be at 8127 Mesa Drive, Ste. A, in the former location of Spicewood Tavern, which closed in November.
Galaxy Cafe took over the space March 16, said Kelly Chappell of Intergalactic Productions, which manages Galaxy Cafe along with Top Notch and Zocalo Cafe. Chappell said she estimates it could take 60-90 days to redecorate depending on when furniture and equipment arrive. The new space will feature the clean and modern feel of the business’s other locations, she said. Galaxy Cafe hired Northwest Hills resident Joel Mozersky to design the space.
Chappell would not provide details about what features the new location would have, but she said Galaxy Cafe will serve coffee and brunch on weekends until 4 p.m. She said the Northwest Austin location will offer the entire menu, which focuses on using organic eggs, chicken and beer. www.galaxycafeaustin.com
