Monday arts pick: Sa-Ten Coffee and Eats at Canopy arts complex

View Caption Hide Caption

Though the East Austin arts complex Canopy launched in early 2013, only in the last few weeks has an eatery opened in the space long reserved for such a business.

The owners of the large former warehouse complex at 916 Springdale Road intended Canopy always intended the mix of tenants to include a restaurant of some kind along with galleries, individual artist studios and creative business like the long-time residents, Blue Genie Art Industries.  (The property is owned by a consortium of private business people including architect Michael Hsu who designed the remodel).

But the site’s proximity to a school —Govalle Elementary is right next door — prevents any restaurant at Canopy from obtaining a liquor license.

Welcome, then, to Sa-Ten Coffee and Eats from the co-creators of East Side King and Kome Sushi.

Sa-Ten is open 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays-Fridays, 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Lunch is served 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
