Tantra named Downtown Business of the Month

Thursday, February 28, 2019

The San Marcos Main Street Program has named Tantra Coffeehouse February’s Downtown Business of the Month for their investment in the downtown community, curb appeal and unique customer experience.

Since opening in 2007, Tantra has transformed the downtown community by providing a warm and vibrant atmosphere. They have a very diverse menu, including specialty coffee, craft food, beer and wine and vegan-friendly options. As one of the first outdoor music venues in San Marcos, Tantra hosts performances and various events throughout the year.

“We are more than happy to award Tantra, because they go above and beyond our expectations of a downtown business,” Interim Main Street Manager Josie Falletta said. “Not only do they offer unique food and drinks, but also provide a thriving entertainment hub in downtown San Marcos.”

Tantra Coffeehouse is located on 217 W. Hopkins St., and is open every day from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m.

The San Marcos Main Street Program chooses one downtown business each month for the Downtown Business of the Month award. The award is presented to a business that exemplifies the following eight criteria: Growth, staying power, innovation, response to adversity, contribution to community-oriented projects, marketing and promotional efforts, curb appeal and beautification.
