Doors will open at 8 a.m.–midnight; more specifically the sliding barn door that connects Foxtail Coffee to the new adjoining Farmhouse space. These will be the set hours for Farmhouse with the connecting door closing off Foxtail Coffee at 10 p.m. daily.
The long-awaited expansion aims to bring more seating to the adjacent flagship location of the local coffee shop. In addition to more space, Farmhouse boasts a siphon bar, a silo coffee bean bar, craft cocktails on tap, local bites and four new “experiential” coffee items.
Partners Alex Tchekmeian and Iain Yeakle, the brains behind Foxtail Coffee (Facebook | Website) say that the Farmhouse features the world’s largest coffee siphon bar, equipped with 14 individual burners.
As a continuation of their existing partnership, DoveCote will manage the majority of their food items, inclusive of vegetarian and vegan-friendly recipes. Next to fresh bites and sandwiches, Farmhouse will feature items from local bakeries, Valhalla and Bluebird Bake Shop as well as Macaw! Foods.
Complementing the enhanced menu, guests can also enjoy wines, ciders, and bubbly options, all curated with the help of DoveCote and Courtesy Bar owner, Gene Zimmerman. Zimmerman’s craft cocktail inspirations are in the same spirit of his downtown speakeasy.
As for the experiential items, guests can find unique coffee-infused picks like a Shakerado and the Deconstructed Latté.
“The Farmhouse closes off completely for private events but still connects to Foxtail Coffee. This allows us to have private events [at the Farmhouse] and still have Foxtail Coffee open.”-Alex
Unlike any of their other locations, the Farmhouse will also cater to the after-hours crowd. Directly mirroring the coffee wall will be a wine bar featuring local wines, coffee and wine pairings as well as other specialty cocktails.
Foxtail Farmhouse is located next door to sister space Foxtail Coffee at 1282 Orange Avenue in Winter Park [GMap].
