Carlene Saelg and Rita Davis own Pearl Cup.

Pearl Cup, the chic coffee shop with locations on North Henderson and Downtown, is the latest addition to the planned Sylvan | Thirty mixed-use development on the site of the former Alamo Motel on Fort Worth Avenue.

From the media release: “Pearl Cup’s patio will straddle the intersection of Sylvan Avenue and the service road to I-30…”

Say what now? Not sure how a patio straddles an intersection, but we will take the proximity to Pearl lattes, no matter what it straddles.

Owners Carlene Saelg and Rita Davis opened the first Pearl Cup, in East Dallas, in 2008.
