Royal Blue Grocery

Best Of
Royal Blue Grocery is a compact urban market serving as Highland Park Village’s new flagship grocer. Originally founded in Austin, each Royal Blue Grocery locale stocks its shelves to satisfy every epicurean, beverage and household whim of the surrounding neighborhoods. This 6,000-square-foot store features mainstay grocery departments such as produce, bakery, butcher shop, gourmet deli, floral, beer, wine and more, with the added bonus of catering, a café, patio seating, and a Stumptown coffee bar. Brought to the Dallas market by owners/proprietors Zac Porter and Cullen Potts, along with partner Emily Ray-Porter, this grocer-meets-convenience store is supplied with international, national, Texas-centric and local brands that are top favorites of the Park Cities customer base. For gourmet items, think Olympic Provisions, Cypress Grove Chevre, Olli Salumeria, Grandma's Humus, and McClure's Pickles; for wines conjure Cakebread Cellars, Sassicaia, Opus One, and Orin Swift Cellars; and for daily household needs, there is Method, Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day, Avalon Organics, and Alba Botanica. Royal Blue Grocery also partners with many local culinary craftsmen such as patissiers, chocolatiers, fromagiers, juicers and butchers in order to offer their wares. With seating for 70-plus in the café, on the mezzanine level, and on the outside patio, this undoubtedly serves as a charming gathering spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner as the food options (be sure to browse the grab & go island) are limitless and the wine selections are perfectly curated and can be purchased at retail prices to enjoy onsite. Opening at 7am — to serve up delicious breakfast tacos, croissants, bagels, scones and coffee — and not closing until 10pm, look to Royal Blue Grocery to fill your day-to-day delicacy needs and visit royalbluegrocery.com for more information.
