Famed butter coffee purveyor Picnik opened a new trailer within the St. Elmo Marketplace. This is the first announced food truck for the South Austin development’s planned food truck court.

The new trailer is open daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The offerings are similar to the other trailer, serving signature specialty drinks (yes, there’s pumpkin spice butter coffee) and paleo-friendly food like breakfast tacos, bone broth, and other grab-and-go items. Scope out the full menu below.

This is Picnik’s third location and a return to its trailer roots for the special diet-friendly restaurant. The first food truck opened on South Lamar in 2013, before expanding in 2016 to a brick and mortar on Burnet Road. It also recently started selling bottled flavored butter coffee in retail locations like Whole Foods Market.

St. Elmo Marketplace was originally going to include an expansion of Saxon Pub, but that isn’t happening anymore. The development will include a hotel, offices, event spaces, as the public marketplace with restaurants, bars, and shops.

Across the street in the St. Elmo district is The Yard, which houses St. Elmo Brewery and its food trailer Soursop, Spokesman, The Austin Winery, and Still Austin Whiskey Co.
