Eiland Coffee Roasters plans to open a cafe in mid-January at 2701 Custer Parkway, Richardson. At its flagship storefront on Interurban Street, the business roasts single-origin coffee that is sold to individual customers, coffee shops and restaurants across the Dallas-Fort Worth area and nationwide. The cafe will take over the former location of Pearl Cup Coffee in II Creeks Plaza in the Canyon Creek neighborhood. It will include extensive seating for guests and a menu of high-quality foods. 972-991-0100. www.eilandcoffee.com
