Many visitors to Fayetteville enjoy spending the day shopping at the city’s many stores, as well as taking a break with a refreshing cup of warm coffee or cold pint of beer. Lucky for you, at one location on Dickson Street, all three can be achieved under one roof.
Fayettechill Clothing Company and Puritan Coffee & Bar both inhabit the old Ozark Mountain Smokehouse in the heart of the Downtown & Dickson Street Entertainment District. It’s a popular hangout for both locals and guests alike. Along with being at a primo location in the heart of Fayetteville, both establishments’ products reflect the community’s strong value on local craft and quality.
Established in 2009, Fayettechill has helped spawn a refreshed and re-envisioned outdoor culture that is open to all inspired by nature. Their aim is to bring our home, the Ozarks, to the rest of the country while creating an outdoor brand that represented Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas.
According to its website, Fayettechill “creates goods for the woods that are good for the woods.” Utilizing built-to-last and eco materials, Fayettechill strives to lessen its impact on the environment with each seasonal product collection.
Puritan specializes in espresso, but offers a variety of selections for the coffee connoisseur, all of which can be enjoyed inside or outside on the patio that overlooks Dickson Street. Puritan also offers more than 30 beers on tap, including several from the Fayetteville Ale Trail — Arkansas’ first craft beer tasting adventure, which features 11 stops at local breweries (including a cidery!)
Local breweries currently on tap at Puritan include Columbus House, Fossil Cove, Ozark, Black Apple Crossing, Bentonville Brewing and New Province. To see a full list of beer offerings, visit their Facebook page (@PuritanCoffeeBeer).
So, the next time you’re in Fayetteville, load up on gear at Fayettechill, and take a load off at Puritan.
