Street Eats will be parked next to The Mix’s new coffee shop at 1400 Speight Ave., which opened its doors to customers on Monday. The coffee shop will open from 3 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday after the food truck closes, and will offer a place for students to study or relax with free Wi-Fi.

The coffee shop will also serve the food truck’s desserts, including The Mix’s famous homemade strawberry cake.

“The coffee shop will be a convenient place for Baylor students to come outside of the library to study,” said Kelcy Workman, manager of the shop. “It’s relaxed, but lively and has a comfortable feeling.”

The coffee shop features several rooms complete with couches and tables serve as a quiet room to study in, or a more relaxed area to socialize.

There will also be a separate room with a whiteboard that study groups will be able to rent for $10 and comes with free coffee for the night.

Paired together, the Street Eats food truck and the coffee shop will cater to the needs of Baylor students all day from providing fresh lunches in the day to a coffee and study space in the evening.

Street Eats has been seen around Waco at the Farmer’s Market and Baylor football home games.

It offers an alternative to the typical taco food truck by making fresh food right on the truck.

“There are taco trucks all over town, but no real food trucks,” Chef Darrell Thompson said. “It’s good food right here in your neighborhood. Everything we sell, we’ve done it ourselves.”

Street Eats will sell sandwiches like the BLT, chili cheese steaks, buffalo chicken wraps, soups, quiches and dessert.
