Coffee Shop’s Beginnings
Living in the area, Celeste Gucana and her family often walked down Yorktown’s Main Street. The quaint Cole Digges House always caught her eye. One day, Celeste stopped to read the historical sign. Upon learning the house once served as a tea room in the 19th century, Celeste got the idea to open a coffee shop there.
After gaining approval from the National Parks Service for proposed renovations and leasing terms, Celeste and her family began the extensive renovations while keeping the cottage’s historical features intact.
Once this family brought to life this 1720s house as a coffee shop, the locals fully embraced this much-needed restaurant on Main Street. The locals always know the best places to go. Follow their lead to one of the most enchanting coffee shops you will ever experience.
