The moment you pass the welcome mat and enter the interior of Calypso Coffee House, the atmosphere changes to one of lively conversations, fast-paced and friendly service, and spacious surroundings with comfortable sofas and cushioned chairs that invite you to take a seat and unwind.
Owned by Shannon Hutton and her mother, Dawn Hutton, Calypso Coffee House enjoyed a soft opening on March 29.
“Starbucks came in for training on the 28th of March, and the next day, we were opened,” explained Shannon.
Yes, Starbucks coffee is proudly served on the menu including an extensive collection of hot, iced and blended beverages for customers to sample. Besides coffee, you’re welcome to try tea, hot chocolate and smoothies.
Shannon said that they are also working on their breakfast and lunch menu, which will include an array of soups, salads, paninis and daily lunch specials. On Monday, the lunch special was a tasty vegan chili.
No matter what you order from the menu, the prices appear to be reasonable.
Shannon added that there are also plans to introduce wine and beer to the menu, so Calypso will function as a coffee shop by day and be transformed into a wine lounge at night serving signature cocktails as well.
