Opening Bell Coffee (OBC) was fortuitously discovered by Jeff Wilt and Tom Patterson while touring south of downtown Dallas after a meeting. The inviting street front and basement setting led the two inside. This is not your average coffee shop. It offers a little bit of everything throughout the day — coffee in the AM, live music in the PM, and breakfast tacos served all day. Does it get any better? Located on South Lamar Street, this is one basement worth exploring.
