Espumoso Caffe opened in the Bishop Arts District in April 2009, and over the past five years, the neighborhood has changed dramatically.

Even with competitors including Oddfellows and the Wild Detectives nearby, Espumoso only gains popularity.

“With the popularity of Bishop Arts, it’s just getting busier,” says Tony Fernandez Sanabria, who owns Espumoso with his parents. “There’s enough for everybody.”

Fernandez’s mom, Clara, makes most of the shop’s pastries, including empanadas, flan, tres leches cake and maple pecan and lemon bars. His dad, also Tony, manages the shop most days while the younger Tony is at work.

The shop has applied for a license to sell beer and wine, which they hope to receive by the end of the year, and they plan to carry South American beer and wine labels.
