Stowe Street Cafe Celebrates the Community

By Elisha Neubauer

Stowe Street Café believes very strongly in celebrating local art and the community. In fact, they believe in the idea so much that the entire café's concept is based around it. When you step into the Stowe Street Café, you'll find a place that honors local coffee, food, and art in a warm and welcoming environment.

"Stowe Street Café is committed to fostering community and celebrating local art in all forms," owner Nicole Grenier said. "Every single cup of artisan coffee, every bite of artisan food and every piece of artwork is created and shared with the same values from day one and consistently reinforced; that is, everything is made with care, shared with pride and sold with a passion for celebrating local art and our community."

The café opened its doors in 2015 and has seen immeasurable success since. To pursue its mission in supporting local industries, the café uses only local ingredients when possible. Each piece of artwork donning the walls of the inviting café creates a soothing and friendly place to meet with family, friends, or coworkers while enjoying delicious food and coffees at the same time.

When it comes to recognition, Grenier believes they are most known for their made-from-scratch mentality. Everything is hand-crafted onsite, including baked goods, breakfast sandwiches, and Saturday brunch along with fresh, healthy soups, salads and sandwiches.

"In addition to serving locally roasted coffee, tea, espresso, smoothies and fresh-pressed juice, we also have wine and local craft beers available as a perfect complement to our special evening events," Grenier said.

Locally made gifts and artwork are always available for purchase. These treasures are crafted by a range of over 20 local artists and crafters and range from original paintings and prints to photography, jewelry, and more.

The eatery also hosts several unique events to help bring the community together in a safe space. These include classes such as Mini Essential Oils Bootcamps, Paint Nite, and Learning to Work with Crystals. Children and family events are also available on occasion and include things like Kids and Grownups Mandala Painting and community dinner and music.
