Honest Coffee Roasters will be opening a new location in the former Dreamcakes space in Edgewood later this year.

“The former Dreamcakes location has been attractive to our team for a while. Our partner Vinh Tran—who owns Ono Poke at Edgewood—determined the new space would make a great home for Honest Coffee. Edgewood carries all of the beautiful qualities of a family-friendly neighborhood. We can’t wait to be part of the community!”

According to Jesus, the team plans to start construction in February with an expected opening in April. In addition to their full-service craft coffee options, guests can expect the complete food menu—such as acai bowls with acai sorbet, granola, fresh fruit + toppings.

For coffee lovers excited to try Honest Coffee Roasters in downtown Birmingham, you don’t have to wait long. Although the team faced some construction delays last year, Honest Coffee is finalizing new construction plans for The Pizitz Food Hall location!
