You know what they say, an early bird catches a worm. At Early Bird Coffee, the early bird gets a horchata latte.
San Antonio – You may have heard of Early Bird Coffee in a story we covered last year. But things look a little different now that the company has a brick-and-mortar storefront located in Huebner Oaks.

The storefront has only been open for a month, but the loyal customer base fills their new spaces with warmth.
Owners Cindy and Jamal Abed said they wanted to change the store due to convenience, but there were also other perks.
“Everything is here now and we don’t have to store things in different places,” said Sidni Abed. “I think there’s an organized mess at the end of the day, but it’s nice to have everything here. With the trailer we took it home every day.”
But how hard is it to move everything from the trailer?
“I think it was easier than just opening the trailer. I feel like the transition was faster,” said Sedny. “I think a lot of that has to do with the loyal customers that we built from the trailer. A lot of them are just loyal customers who have been great and wonderful,” Jamal added.
Although they have a new location, they still have some real favorites like the horchata latte.
Speaking of favourites, here’s what sets them apart from their customers.
“I’d love to hear about their lives. I think that’s been very nice. Over the past two years, we’ve seen people who have kids, open their own businesses, talk about buying a home, and we’ve also learned a lot about these people,” said Sedni. “It’s unbelievable. So we have created such great relationships with these people.”
The couple said they also enjoy more free time to spend with their children and family. Free time that they did not have when operating the trailer.
Abed said the iconic trailer is living a second life somewhere in the world.
