Food news: Ironic coffee, boozy popsicles


A couple of trendy new spots are opening soon in our neighborhood.

First, a weird-for-the-sake-of-being-weird coffee shop from the husband and wife who own Glass Optical and Emporium Pies, respectively.

Paul and Megan Wilkes are planning Internet Cafe 2 in a 300-square-foot space at 1333 Plowman Ave. The Wilkeses, who live in Oak Cliff, own that building and several others on Plowman, according to the Dallas Observer.

Megan Wilkes told the Observer: “It’s part art piece, part performance art and part coffee shop.”

The cafe, which is expected to open in October, will serve coffee from Cultivar as well as pastries.

And over in Bishop Arts, another business is opening to offer booze-filled frozen treats. Picolé Pops took the space formerly occupied by La Michoacana Original ice cream shop.

The shop will offer Brazilian-style popsicles infused with alcohol.

Picolé is a block away from Ice Cream Wasted, which also sells booze-infused frozen treats.

    From the Associated Press Style book, and no, I don’t work for Popsicle.

    Popsicle  A trademark for a brand of flavored ice on a stick. Use ice pop or frozen pop as the generic.
