The new HEB location I hear is FM 158/Boonville and across entrance to Miramont.

That location is also conveniently owned by Summit Crossing LLC which is the same as a few of the parcels near the University and Boonville locations.

To be fair, I had heard the same thing about HEB going there some years back.

I also hear that Miramont wants to put the squash on that?

Vs the multifamily/retail originally slated for that location ? I'd find it surprising they would prefer that over an H-E-B. Either way they get a light at Miramont Dr.

Anywhere near the Bryan Target is probably a good idea.

I was so excited when I heard Dunkin was coming to town. I remembered eating there as a kid and absolutely loving their apple fritters. I was raving about how good they were to the husband and daughter for months. They opened, we went, I ordered an apple fritter, and didn't even finish it. I was so disappointed. Shipley's is better than Dunkin. Stella is better. Babe's is better. Donald's is better. I could go on and on.

The apple fritters at the local Shipley's are not at all my favorite. Stella donuts makes an awesome one though. The apple fritter lover at our house gets one every time.

Dunkin doesn't even have a kitchen in it, everything is simply reheated.

Everything I've tried is a fritter with a teaspoon of apple in it. Nowhere near enough apple filling.

Bring it to Old Reliance and 6 and make Rudder Pointe the Tower Pointe of Bryan - I might could get on board with that. A new Bryan Golds Gym

We need a Hurts donut. Best apple fritters ever!

Yes, that Welborn Dunkin is a huge let down. Took the kids thinking it would be fun, immediately regretted that decision

It's funny cause when they first opened, the drive-thru line stretched for like half a mile. Place just isn't any good.


Dunking had lines because of the coffee. It's not a coincidence their business fell off at the same time Dutch Bros opened right next door.

Is this confirmed or just a rumor? Any idea on when they are looking to have a store in the area by?

Nothing with H-E-B is confirmed until the zoning is settled and the permits pulled. Review a decade on this board and it will prove the accuracy of this statement. There is way more wild to reasonable speculation about H-E-B than there is fact or even informed statement. I'd put the ratio at 5:1

There are a lot of new retail spaces well under construction at Tower Point. The Waxing place has their sign up. Is there a list of others coming, including the ever entertaining speculation?

Anybody know just how many spaces are coming available? I'm assuming the business space real estate sites are all over it.

Are there near future plans for even more retail development there?

That area appears prime to take over the retail center of CS.

Taco Casa at Caprock is currently closed. Letter on the door states that it has been locked by the landlord until they have 'successfully satisfied your lease requirements.'

I don't know if it's all Dunkin locations or just the Wellborn one, but their coffee is terrible. Do they brew it with water straight from the Brazos?

Did they post it next to the card surcharge sign?

Glad I'm not the only one who thinks so. Someone years ago was raving about how good it was. Tried it at a restaurant, terrible. Bought some at HEB to brew at home, terrible.

Maybe they truck it in like their donuts.

Now that is funny. The card surcharge was a bad look - until the locks got changed

Uptown Brunch and Harvest Coffee (former Howdy's Pizza location) seem to be having a soft opening.

Tim Horton's is starting to open stores in the Houston area and I believe they mentioned including locations in BCS.

Saints & Sinners Cafe. Just opened. Located in center between Cindy's and Babylon Cafe. Really interesting food choices. We had their Donuts and Chicken signature dish, very good moist Chicken. Also had Nachos that were made from kettle chips and Brisket (so Texas it's painful) that was really good. Big beer list on draft. Great fun little place. Price point is low entrees $10 or under.
