City Council will weigh in on a new lease agreement between Leu Gardens and Foxtail Coffee Company at the upcoming June 12 City Council meeting.

The prolific Orlando-based company is signing on to repurpose the gift shop space in the Leu Gardens Welcome Center into a new “reimagined food, beverage, and retail cafe space,” according to the city council agenda.

The new 550 SF coffee/gift shop collab would feature a shared kitchen for the Leu Gardens staff as well. It would also feature ice cream from Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream, grab-and-go sandwiches, and of course, coffee, alongside Leu Gardens memorabilia and tchotchkes.

The agreement proposes a 5-year lease with two five-year expansions, and the buildout is estimated to cost $350,000, with $40,000 being paid by the City of Orlando.

The estimated opening date, if approved by City Council, would be later this year, with a hard start date of December 1.

Jennifer D’hollander was appointed earlier this month as the new executive director of the city-run Harry P. Leu Gardens. More on that HERE.

  1. I hope they make it look like a Leu Gardens gift shop and not scream COFFEE and ICE CREAM! The Kelly’s ice cream in these little shops is more expensive too.
