Rumors that Houndstooth was opening at The Hill circulated for months, but the beloved coffee shop kept its lips sealed about the expansion — until today.

Houndstooth finally announced that it is coming to the shopping center and slated to open this fall. It’s being constructed on property that belongs to TreeHouse, an eco-friendly home improvement store that opened in June.

The café won’t quite be the same as other Houndstooth locations. Powered by solar energy, it will be stationed inside tiny porch houses along 9730 N. Central Expressway.

We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
