Cy-Fair residents have a new coffee shop option following the opening of The Cast Iron Cafe. Suikey Payne opened the new business at 10609 Grant Road on April 10, offering a number of panini, wrap, sandwich and salad options.

The new business is open from 7 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Saturday and is also BYOB.
