BIZNOTE FOLLOWUP: Animated Café reopens at new location

Animated Café proprietor Melanie (aka “Ana”) just sent word that her coffee trailer is now open at its new location, a week later than originally hoped, so we went over for photos. We reported on the move 2+ weeks ago. Animated Café is now on the same Triangle lot as the Chapulín Oaxaqueño taco truck, at 4518 Fauntleroy Way SW [map]:

She first opened her coffee stand last winter at its original location in Westwood. She offers a deal on weekends where customers who come dressed in the spirit of the weekend “theme” get $2 off; the November schedule is in our previous report.

    Thank you for posting this information. I went to their old Tony’s location last week and saw they had left.  Love their snacks, and I’m glad to see they are still in operation.

    I love this blossoming food truck corner! Do you know if there are any more trucks planning on moving in here?

    Hey, all you fools sitting in line at Starbuck’s, blocking the right lane on Avalon – just go on up a half a block and get your coffee fix from Ana!

      good idea! no idea what the appeal is at starbucks anyway – all automated, don’t pull their own shots, plus dare i mention the Sonics?

        I’ll mention the Sonics and I’ll never buy a Starbucks coffee. But I’m not bitter.

      Seriously, and if she can get drive-thru going (as mentioned in the previous post), she’ll be extra slammed. That Triangle Starbucks drive-thru needs a relief valve. I don’t even know if Starbucks would be that mad about it given how backed up that location usually is.

    Nice! I’m so glad they’ll be closer so I can walk instead of drive! 

  • Cait November 12, 2022 (7:30 pm)

    I’m so glad you’re back up and running, Ana!

    I will miss her down in her old location! I love Ana! ( Melanie)
