Cafe moves into new location in downtown Ocala

A popular cafe has relocated to a space in downtown Ocala that was vacated by a fine dining restaurant earlier this summer.

Located at 101 E Silver Springs Boulevard, Suite 102, Symmetry Coffee Company replaces Katya Vinyards, which closed its doors in July.

The coffee shop is just one block away from the old store, which was located at 108 N Magnolia Avenue, Suite 102.

In the years since it opened its first location in 2016, Symmetry has become one of the most popular destinations in downtown Ocala.

Symmetry Coffee Company is open Monday through Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The cafe’s new location is one of several recent changes to downtown Ocala’s landscape of businesses.

Since closing its doors earlier this summer, Katya Vineyards has been working on a new location just a couple doors down in the former location of Morevino and Tavern on the Square.

Earlier this month, Mellow Mushroom announced that its new location in downtown Ocala is “coming Shroom.” The restaurant is gearing up for its grand opening this December.

A local women’s clothing store, Karishma Boutique, is building out its new location at 56 SE 1st Avenue, #102, in downtown Ocala. The boutique replaces The Mustard Seed Collection, which is currently operating online until it moves into a new location in Alachua.

Earlier this summer, The Keep Downtown, which was formerly known as Ocala Wine Experience, shut down its location after a multi-year run. Next door, the District Kitchen and Bar celebrated its official grand opening in September.
