After more than nine months of searching, we announced in September 2017 that Fabled Bookshop & Cafe would be at 217 South 4th Street in downtown Waco, Texas. This building is in the heart of downtown and is beloved by our community because of the iconic “Wacotown” mural in the side. Renovations on the building will begin in Spring of 2018 with a projected opening date later this year.

Kimberly Batson is the co-owner of Common Grounds and Heritage Creamery. Before diving into the coffee and ice cream world, she was a tour guide in Europe, where she loved to duck into a bookshop whenever the opportunity arose. With her experience and love for coffeeshop culture, as well as delicious treats, she’s excited to add an amazing menu to complement’s Fabled’s book selection and create what she deems is “the literary linger.”
