Food & Drink

Well Met Friends

NWA Daily

Alright friends, Onyx has a new location in town, and it’s quite lovely. 

  • Quite posh: It’s called Hail Fellow Well Met and is as fancy as it sounds with a cafe, market and patio. The cafe has been softly opening for a little over a week now and plans to continue to ride that wave until late fall.
  • Shifting: Right now the cafe is open Tues-Sat 1a-6p and Sun 7a-2p. Menus will rotate as it gets settled, but coffee and pastries are consistently available. Go enjoy the space in Johnson (another great addition to the Johnson Square). It might just become your new spot.
