Pearl Cup Coffee Comes To Richardson
One of my biggest complaints about my suburban town, Richardson, is that there aren’t enough cool, local destinations. The city is building some amazing trails and bike lanes, but they really don’t lead to many great stops. Sure, we have a quite a few parks, city amenities, chain restaurants, grocery stores, and even a couple of bike shops, but there aren’t very many places to just hang out and relax.
That’s why I’m glad that Pearl Cup Coffee has opened in Richardson. In a town that has at least 5 nearby Starbucks, you’d think another coffee shop would be overkill. Not for me, because it goes beyond the fix of caffeine. It’s about having a nice destination that’s easy to access by bike. Being right off one of the city’s bike lanes, Pearl Cup Coffee could potentially be a great, bike friendly hangout. Unfortunately, they’re not set up with any bike racks. There are a few in the shopping center, but none close to the coffee shop.
Pearl Cup Coffee has a couple other locations in Dallas. Both are very successful destinations that pull in a nice crowds and build stronger communities. I’m hoping the same thing happens in Richardson.
Be sure to politely ask them for some bike racks out front.
