Along with celebrating their seventh year anniversary, Encore Coffee Café is excited about the new manager, Heather Wentzel, and the changes she has inspired.
She is using her culinary talents to create new menu items, including homemade soups, new sandwiches and wraps, and scrumptious desserts. Other specialties include: popovers (which are served alone or with salads), bread pudding, scones, and specialty drinks. Catering is also available for groups of 50 or less.
Wentzel describes the atmosphere of Encore as casual and inviting. The backroom, known as “Backstage”, seats about 30 people, which can be reserved for private meetings and gatherings, with a closed door.
The Opera House Restoration Project tastefully restored this former bank using some local artifacts from the past.
