Here is a roundup of recent business news in the Bay Area, including the reopening of a local coffee shop and the relocation of a Clear Lake Italian restaurant to Texas City.


Java Owl Coffee House reopened in mid-May at 1354 E. NASA Parkway, Ste. J, Houston. The business was previously located at
10821 Upper Bay Road, Nassau Bay and moved when the first building was demolished to make way for Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital’s expansion. Some stained glass windows and doors were saved from the first location and brought to the new one, according to Java Owl Facebook posts. The business sells locally roasted coffee; leaf teas; specialty beverages, such as Vietnamese and Cuban coffees; locally baked goods; and local beer and wine. 281-957-9814.
