Buzzy Korean Coffee Shop With Legendary Pretzel Power to Open in Galleria Area

Tom N Toms is Doubling Up in Houston as Texas Push Picks Up Speed

BY // 08.09.19

Houston’s about to get an international favorite. Buzzy Korean coffee shop Tom N Toms is up to double trouble, revealing a second Houston location less than a year after announcing its first Space City outpost.

The first Houston shop is set for the hotly anticipated Bellaire Food Street in Asiatown. The second — which will be the third ever in the Lone Star State (a Dallas-Fort Worth area Tom N Toms opened in Carrollton) — is destined for The Galleria area.

Tom N Toms is debuting its second space slated for 53West, also known as 5353 West Alabama, in late November, following the Bellaire Food Street Tom N Toms unveiling in September.

These locations join the 400-plus Tom N Toms spread throughout the globe. The coffee chain’s only other United States locations aside from Texas are in California.

The Korean coffee shop initially kicked things off nearly 20 years ago in the Apgujeong-dong District in Seoul.

It’s celebrated not just for its coffees, everything from your standard latte and macchiatos to pina colada smoothies and sweet potato espressos and grapefruit teas, but its delicious eats, too.

Think baked-to-order baked goods such as tortilla pizzas and pretzels stuffed with all manner of fillings, like shrimp and pepperoni, cinnamon caramel butter toast, muffins and more.

The two Bayou City coffee shops will be independently operated. Jason Cho will helm the Galleria area location at the complex of Braun Enterprises. This isn’t Cho’s first foray into delicious Korean restaurants.

He’s also the owner of the Museum District’s twice-fried chicken wing sensation Dak & Bop. Cho plans to add some unique elements to the Galleria area Tom N Toms, starting with Korean shaved ice — topped with condensed milk, fruit syrup and red beans — and an Asian-inspired brunch.

Are you ready for twice the Tom N Toms?
