The operation is owned by Jean Brillman, a former horse trainer and current horse show judge. Her love of horses is evident in the café, with pictures of the noble animal featured throughout.

The menu includes doughnuts (as available); roasted organic coffee (decaf, regular, or espresso); sweet pastries; and savory breakfast sandwiches.

Brillman’s business includes a roastery, creamery, and sustainability shop. The latter subset of the retail space offers items like eco-friendly containers and non-polluting cleaning products.

As a further nod to her desire to help the environment, Brillman uses electric apparatus to roast coffee sustainably and ensure that only clean air gets out into the atmosphere. The process is not only sustainable, it also improves the quality of the coffee.

“Us roasting our own coffee was one of the best things we ever did,” said Brillman.
