Drink Coffee Finds New Home on Sister Bay Hill

POSTED ON April 1st  - POSTED IN All, Coffee & Tea

 Have no fear; we have not lost our beloved cookie and coffee shop that has become a landmark of the Sister Bay Hill. They’ve just moved downhill a little bit. Opening at the shop’s new location, Rachel Lohman and her husband Scooter couldn’t be happier.

The new home for Drink Coffee is the former Moretti’s building. The couple officially bought the building on February 22 of this year. Since then, they have spent nearly every day completely redoing both the interior and exterior of the building.

The new store will feature a full kitchen and bakery, outdoor seating and carry out options. Rachel’s creativity gets to flourish here in this larger home. She will be expanding the menu to feature salads, soups, Premium Sandwiches, and more.

A great new option will be the carry out lunch boxes including a sandwich, chips and a cookie. These would be perfect for those heading to the beach, out on the boat, or back to work.  compress front

The Bakery will be serving up croissants, cookies, and of course the delectable Cherry Queen Cookies that have become her best seller.

It’s the shop’s fifteenth year in operation and Rachel has owned it for the past eight years. They are planning to be open before Memorial Day weekend but Scooter, chiming in from the rooftop busy removing shingles, thinks it’ll be sooner.

Keep an eye out on Drink Coffee’s Facebook Page  for updates and an opening date! For more photos of the progress, check out Door County Chef’s Facebook Page!
