Cenote, the East Cesar Chavez coffee shop and restaurant, is expanding into Windsor Park with a second location. It is taking over one of Fran’s Hamburgers’ former location on Cameron Road. It’s looking to open soon, sometime in early to mid-August.

Co-owner Cody Symington, who opened the original Cenote in March 2012, had been wanting to open a second location for a while, but hadn’t found the proper location until now. “Windsor Park feels like old Austin,” he said, “and we think it will be a supportive neighborhood to a locally owned and operated business like ours.”

Because the northern space is larger, Cenote will be able to offer 12 taps of beer (nearly double the original list), along with wine and coffee. The food menu will remain the same, which means breakfast (migas, oatmeal, parfait, eggs, etc.), tacos, sandwiches, quesadillas, burgers, soups, and salads.

The new Cenote will have a different look because of the original building, but it will pull design elements to tie the two restaurants together. There will be some bar seating as well.

Similarly, owners of shuttered wine and cheese restaurant Henri's are opening their own restaurant in Windsor Park early next year. The unnamed spot is taking over what was pegged to become Odelay and the Upper East Side (those plans fell through).
