Tiki Loco is the newest of the growing number of restaurants to open in Deep Ellum. Oliver Peck, the owner of Elm Street Tattoo and judge on Paramount Network’s show Ink Master, created this concept that combines counter-service vegan eats with the first franchise of local coffee chain White Rock Coffee.

Drawing from over two decades of experience in the neighborhood, Oliver and his partner Dean Williams saw a need for fast, healthy food options and high-quality coffee to serve the area.  In addition to White Rock Coffee’s full assortment of beverages and packaged goods, Tiki Loco will be offering vegan tacos, smoothies, fresh pressed juice, and Hawaiian shaved ice.

There will be free WiFi and seating available for those that need a few minutes away from the rush of downtown, but the space is designed for efficiency so guests get what they need and jump back into the action of Deep Ellum. Check it out today!
