Summer-Moon-600

The Austin coffee scene has spread to San Antonio with the opening of Summermoon Coffee Bar at 3233 N. St. Mary’s St., Suite 102.

The new spot debuted Oct. 23.

“Summermoon is a coffee shop out of Austin, Texas, and we are super-excited to be in San Antonio,” said Rhonda Crocker, one of the owners. “People drive by all the time and come in and say, ‘I just did a triple take. I saw your sign and is this the Summermoon in Austin?’ So we definitely have a following and people love what we have to offer here.”

After visiting family in San Antonio, the entrepreneur and her husband, Scott Crocker, approached the owners of the original Summermoon in Austin.

“We were looking to do something together and while we were visiting (San Antonio), our friends had just opened the Summermoon in north Austin. We were talking about how well one would do down here,” Scott Crocker said.

While the coffee bar is known for roasting its own beans over oak wood, it’s also recognized for an in-house milk called Moon Milk.

Made with seven secret, natural sweeteners and milk, Moon Milk is used in some of the coffee bar’s most popular drinks including the Summermoon Latte and the Half Wintermoon, a cold-coffee beverage.

“People love the Moon Milk! It’s super sweet and I would equate it to liquid-vanilla ice cream. The people here have been really receptive to the flavor and the sweetness,” Rhonda Crocker said.

Nitro Cold Brew also has become popular at the San Antonio location.

As for the snacks, customers can pair their beverages with cupcakes and cookies from Bird Bakery and eats from El Milagrito Café.

“For the food, we wanted to be local to San Antonio. All the other shops do Austin-based food and we really wanted to do San Antonio-based food,” Scott Crocker said.

The owners hope to schedule poetry slams and singers at the coffee shop.

Hours are 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday through Sunday.
