From businesses to brands and bars

787coffee allows their customers to enjoy coffee imported from Puerto Rico.

The new year calls for new adventures and new memories to be created. Since the borderland is composed of many unique and eclectic environments, from coffee shops to new wave fashion stores, the community can indulge in intimate hangouts with friends or loved ones with a trip to new businesses and restaurants around the Sun City.   

For those who are coffee-lovers, 787coffee is an immaculate destination for college students and the community to enjoy coffee imported from Puerto Rico. With their second location opening near campus, it makes a great pit-stop for delicious coffee as the spring semester rolls in.   

El Paso local Ivana Durancou shares how she loves visiting 787coffee located at 2149 N Stanton St., or its sister location on 5038 Alameda Ave.    

“Not only is there coffee unique and locally flavored, as well as the environment, it is always so welcoming,” Durancou said. “787coffee pays attention to detail and puts love into their craft.”   

El Paso also has a lot to offer to people of all ages as downtown is beginning to spruce up with more gems for the public. The Reagan, a local bar located at 313 E. Mills Ave., comprises of beverages for individuals 21 and older and a unique food menu served at varying hours. With a blossoming atmosphere, the venue brings more nightlife to the city. 

Taconeta, located at 311 Montana Ave., Ste. A-1, is a great place for locals to grab a savory bite. The restaurant intertwines the flavors of El Paso with the perfect seating scenery. Surrounded by neon lights, greenery and a spectacular view of the downtown skyline, Taconeta feeds the borderland with delicious tacos and beverages.   

The entire community is expanding from the west side to the far east. Adding to the east side are new locations from big-brand businesses that the Sun City loves. Off Zaragoza and Pebble Hills are brand-new Albertsons and chain restaurants like Whataburger, Peter Piper Pizza and Dunkin Donuts.   

Los Angeles based chain restaurant ‘Dave’s Hot Chicken’ is also set to open its first location in the borderland. Although there is no exact location determined yet, locals express their excitement for the business making its way to town.  

“I visited California awhile back and tried (Dave’s Hot Chicken) and thought it was the best chicken sandwich I ever had,” said El Paso resident Jacob Herrera. “I am super excited to have it again and it is nice to hear about all these places that are finally coming to the city.”  

Last but not least, the very first Panera made its way to El Paso and is located at 6470 N. Desert Blvd. The franchise is something locals have been waiting for, a long time. Another Panera is set to open on campus in Union East.   

With endless options to discover, El Paso’s expansion brings opportunities for everyone in the community to try out different flavors of food and shopping experiences.
