Local cafe Number One is launching a new seasonal menu for the summer. Located in Highland Park Village, Number One is a go-to coffee shop for the residents of the

Park Cities.

All in one location, the cafe offers coffee from Blue Bottle Coffee Co., organic eats, and clothing and boutique goods.

“We’re getting ready to start a new summer menu in April. We’ll also be having new cafe hours, adding new items like mushroom cauliflower soup, while still keeping the majority of our items gluten free and adhering to keeping everything organic. We’re just trying to add new options to keep things fresh,” Cafe supervisor
Joe Satarino said.

When people walk in, they immediately enter the cafe seating and coffee bar. The atmosphere is clean and comfortable, with booth seating, black and white decor and bright flowers on each table.

From the exposed brick walls to the wooden windows, Number One Cafe is a place to feel at home.

When the weather permits, the doors and windows are opened to bring in the fresh air, creating an outdoor seating atmosphere.

Everything they serve is made on-site. They make their own almond milk, which pairs well with their strong iced coffee and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies.

On their breakfast menu they offer items like poached eggs, multi-grain toast with honey butter and Greek yogurt with house-made granola.

The cafe even serves smoothies like their special kale, avocado, honey and lime combination.

They also carry Vim + Vigor juices and BELLOCQ Organic Teas.

Just as Satarino mentioned, they take pride in their philosophy, which states, “Our salads, sandwiches, soups, dips and baked goods are all prepared in-house to the highest nutritional standards with simple ingredients of the best quality available. We strive to use all organic products when possible or use local farmers when organic is not available. Most of our offerings are gluten-free and dairy-free, and adhere to the paleo diet standards with vegetarian and vegan options…”

Although Number One Cafe is a bit more expensive than your average cafe, the high quality drink and food is worth the higher price point.

Next to the coffee bar and on their second floor, they sell designer-wear like cashmere scarves, leather leggings, simple tees and Sheryl Lowe jewelry.

They also sell pillows, candles, blankets and other decor from local boutique Forty Five Ten, which are held in an offset room attached to the cafe called Chapter 02.

This little, sun-lit room is lined with bookshelves decorated with art prints, vases and books.

They recently received a new line called Private.

“It’s very light, simple and a little deconstructed- very similar to what their retail does in the store. Most of our clients are in the area, they live in the neighborhood and we usually tailor our clothing to them,” said sale representative Alex Lopez.

Number One seeks to provide quality in the products they offer and serve customers. Obsessed with artisanship and taste, Number One claims to be “the intersection of well-being and living well.”

Whether one is stopping in for a quick almond chai latte to browse through the books and international magazines, or staying to relax while nursing a warm jasmine tea, students can’t miss Number One on their next visit to Highland Park Village.
