New in North City

San Marcos’ North City, a budding 200-acre mixed-use community, recently added several new restaurants to its roster. Halcyon Coffee Bar & Lounge and its sister restaurant Stella Public House will occupy the ground floor of the Block C apartment building and share a large patio in the heart of the North City neighborhood. Both storefronts open to the outdoor plaza with extended seating, creating a vibrant space of dining and interaction. Halcyon combines the comfort and convenience of a modern coffeehouse by day with a laid-back bar and lounge atmosphere by night. Stella Public House is known for its artisan wood-fired pizzas featuring local ingredients and a rotating selection of craft beer and wine. “The vision of the North City project is exciting to be part of – we are happy to be included in this new destination that will truly create a hub of everything our brands care about: community, quality design, and sustainability,” said restaurant Co-owner John Long. A grand opening event is in the works for early summer to welcome Halcyon, Stella, and other recent additions Mason Ale Works and Urge Gastropub.
