Updated: Sep 30, 2021
Business owner and former NFL star Stephen Tulloch announces the grand opening of his second Circle House Coffee location which is set to open on Oakland Park Blvd., in Oakland Park on Saturday, October 30th. This will be the first and only drive-thru coffee shop east of Interstate 95 on Oakland Park Blvd.
The highly anticipated launch joins Tulloch’s popular flagship location in Flagler Village, which has been a staple in the Fort Lauderdale community since 2019. The philanthropic and mission-driven coffee shop, in partnership with the Stephen Tulloch Foundation, often partners with other businesses in the community to raise and donate money to local and global charities.
Circle House Coffee, in collaboration with the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, will be kicking off the launch of their new location with a community block party and fundraising initiative on Saturday, October 30th from 4pm to 8pm. This family-friendly event will feature games, balloon animals, food trucks, and fun beats by a live DJ. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation will also be present with educational materials promoting awareness of breast cancer. Guests can support the fundraiser by purchasing exclusive, pink t-shirts designed by Circle House Coffee. The first 200 guests will receive a special gift bag and proceeds from t-shirt sales will benefit the Foundation.
Scheduled to be open seven days a week with drive-thru service, the new 2,000 square-foot Circle House Coffee will serve handcrafted coffees, CBD-infused drinks, hot and iced teas, and sweet treats including cakes, pies and gourmet Mojo Donuts. Food options include delicious house-made sandwiches, wraps, and empanadas with indoor and outdoor seating. Circle House Coffee also offers “drinkable selfies” with foam-printing technology that allows for customizable latte art.
“We are excited to expand the Circle House Coffee initiative to better serve the Oakland Park community,” said Tulloch, who credits coffee for fueling his 11-year NFL career. “I created a unique brand with a purpose to serve our local and global communities, and the opportunity to be able to give back one sip at a time and make an impact is truly humbling.”
Staying true to Tulloch’s love of java, Circle House Coffee will continue to serve their popular Fifty-Five Signature Espresso which pays tribute to Tulloch’s NFL number 55. Circle House Coffee Oakland Park will also introduce the Magic City Blend, a dark roasted blend perfect for brewing signature South Florida-style beverages including Café con Leche, Cortadito and Café Cubano, as well as two new drip coffee and cold brew blends named the Flagler Village Blend and the Good Vibes Blend.
The brand will add to the beloved Horchata and widen its plant-based beverage selection with more beverages featuring Milkadamia, the vegan, dairy-free, plant-based macadamia milk. A new line of health-conscious smoothies will also be available.
With a list of specially crafted drinks, sophisticated concoctions made with fresh ingredients can be found within the shop’s CBD-infused menu. Highlights include unconventional slushies with ingredients such as green tea, strawberry, lime, basil, mango, yuzu, mint and honey. Tonic drinks are also available and espresso beverages all allow for dairy and non-dairy milk options.
Patrons can pair their beverage with their pick of a specially curated selection of Mojo Donuts, the locally celebrated gourmet doughnut brand known for its scrumptiously creative and over-the-top doughnuts. Circle House Coffee is the only location to permanently carry Mojo Donuts outside of its Pembroke Pines bakery. Guests in a hurry can also grab a healthy Yogurt Parfait ($6.95) with Greek yogurt, house-made strawberry banana compote, and crunchy granola, made in-house with oats, flax seed, maple syrup and coconut flakes.
Hot breakfast choices include the healthy Impossibly Maple Vegan Sandwich ($6.95), and the savory Spicy Chorizo Wrap ($5.95), made with spicy chorizo, egg, cheddar cheese, and potato; available all day and made fresh in-house.
For lunch and dinner, menu highlights include the Mojo Jackfruit Vegan Wrap ($8.95), with jackfruit marinated in mojo sauce, and black beans, corn, yellow sweet potatoes and shredded kale in a whole wheat wrap; and the Crowd Pleaser ($8.75), made with oven roasted turkey, salami, roasted peppers, cheddar cheese, and pesto on sourdough bread.
Cinnamon sugar churro donuts, banana bread nano, chrome rose donuts and queen of matcha cookies are just some of the vegan treats available. Other sweet inspirations from the dessert menu include carrot cake, red velvet cake, Oreo cheesecake, guava cheesecake, sea salt caramel pie, Mississippi mud pie and key lime pie.
Circle House Coffee Oakland Park is located at 119 W Oakland Park Blvd., in Oakland Park and is available for off-site and on-site catering. In addition, the coffee house features an additional 7,000 square feet of outdoor event space available for private events.
About Circle House Coffee
Circle House Coffee was founded by retired NFL Linebacker, Stephen Tulloch, who, throughout his 11-year NFL career, credited coffee as the key to fueling his day. In his transition to life after football, Tulloch established Circle House Coffee in 2018 as a means of bringing people together while raising awareness of local and global issues. Circle House Coffee is a vibrant coffee shop and drive-thru where the community can come together to enjoy handcrafted coffee alongside delicious food options.
While playing in the NFL, he started the Stephen Tulloch Foundation with an imperative geared towards giving back to underprivileged kids and helping people affected by cancer. The four-time Walter Payton Man of the Year Community Service Award recipient has always had a passion for giving back and paying it forward; and since its opening, Circle House Coffee has remained true to the spirit of philanthropic collaboration, serving as a main partner of the Stephen Tulloch Foundation, and a hub for numerous fundraising and community outreach activities. In collaboration with the Foundation, Circle House Coffee has helped to raise and donate thousands of dollars to South Florida non-profits such as the Pink Angels Memorial Foundation, Women in Distress, the Heart Gallery of Broward County, and 4 Kidz to name a few.
