BTX Coffee is now open and serving java from 6 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday at the Joann Cole Mitte Memorial Library, 170 S. Gabriel St. in Bertram. The new shop offers a full espresso menu, famous Texas Pecan Cakes, and more.

“We didn’t necessarily hear (that Bertram needed a coffee shop) on the street, but we knew it because we live here,” said BTX Coffee co-owner Justin Robbins.

Robbins and business partner Jason Jewett teamed up with their families to open the shop after Jewett won a bid with Burnet County to lease the cafe space in the library

BTX Coffee officially opened for business at 6 a.m. Thursday, April 20.

While it has its own entrance, the coffee shop is attached to the library. Robbins and Jewett plan to make it a community hangout and a place for library patrons to enjoy coffee and conversation.

“(BTX Coffee) will be a great addition, especially with socializing and the community,” said Library Director Mary Seaman. “It’s everything that the library should be.”

This is currently the only physical location to grab a famous Texas Pecan Cake. The Texas Pecan Cake Shop recently came under new ownership, and the business is almost completely online — for now.
