Greene Beanery celebrates its first anniversary

The gracious Victorian house that stands at the southern end of Main Street in Peebles has a colorful history. It was once the residence of a local teacher, then, famously was moved in the 1970’s out of the path of the oncoming Appalachian Highway, shortly thereafter it became a bed and breakfast for many years, but for the past year, it has been The Greene Beanery, the favored spot for local Java lovers and conversation connoisseurs.

On Sunday, Feb. 28, the coffee shop will celebrate its one-year anniversary.

“We’re celebrating by running specials all week to let our customers know how much we appreciate their business, and their company,” said owner Cheryl Greene. “It’s been a remarkable year. We really appreciate the support and positive feedback we’ve received from everyone.”

In addition to the daily specials, customers have the opportunity to be entered into a prize giveaway featuring: a $50 gift card, a five pound bag of coffee, and a gift basket valued at $100. The drawing will be held on Monday, Feb. 29.

Customers are enthusiastic in their support. After the lunch crowd departed, one small group admitted, “We’ve been here since breakfast, this place is fantastic.”

The business does have all the usual, inviting coffee-shop ambiance, from the soft music, to the muted sounds of conversations, and the rich aromas that fall like blessings on all who enter. In winter, customers can sip their favorite brews around the warmth of a Victorian fireplace, and in warmer months, enjoy their coffee outdoors on the stately wrap-around porch.

“This is a fantastic place to work,” said employee Carol Shoemaker, “It’s a wonderful place to see old friends and meet new folks.”

In addition to coffee, the shop serves breakfast and Soup and Sandwich lunches, and lunch boxes.

Meeting rooms on the upper floor are available to rent. Call 937-798-4023 for information and rates.
