Our Town "Embrace the Pace"
We love the small town of Nappanee! This is, and always has been, our home and our people. Owning a coffee shop right on Main Street, has given us a unique opportunity to become deeply immersed in local culture and relationships. We are grateful for all the friendships we have developed over the years. Here are some of our favorite local places and attractions in the area. If you want to know more about our town, just stop by the coffee house and we would be happy to sit down and brag on our town awhile.
Our Favorite Local Restaurants
If you are strolling through Nappanee and want to grab a quick snack from a place not called “Main Street Roasters”, we’d love to recommend a few places that are doing a great job here in town!
El Cielito Lindo
For Authentic Mexican, stop by El Cielito Lindo, and let Marti serve you a Taco Loco platter with a side of house made guacamole. Located on West Market, their service is friendly and portions are generous. You’ll be greeted with a smile.
Perfect Twist Pretzel
Perfect Twist Pretzel is located on Market street inside Coppess Commons, and we think these are the best tasting pretzels in the world. Let the Esh family hand make a pretzel or two for you to enjoy.
Nappanee Bakery provides the cinnamon rolls we serve at Main Street, but it does not stop there- they make homemade bread as good as your grandma’s, and we love stopping by for Marilyn’s peanut butter pies. Her homemade dinner rolls are always part of our holiday dinners. You won’t be disappointed with your visit.
Ruhe 152 Bistro and Brewery
If you enjoy a good steak, or fresh sushi, you’ll love the new Ruhe 152 bistro and brewery located west of Main Street. The atmosphere and ambience is a great addition to the local dining options in Nappanee, and we love what Kami has added to the downtown dining options!
When our guests ask us where to grab a burger, we often recommend Hunters Hideaway. Their Belly Buster is a good start, and the patio seating is perfect for a quick refreshing break in the summer months.
Our Favorite Local Fun Places
Coppes Commons offers antique shopping and other free family activities.
Nappanee Public Library
Located next door to Main Street, we’re so glad to be neighbors to one of the best libraries ever. From summer reading incentives with amazing prizes, to board game clubs, after school clubs, they offer so much support to our community. We feel blessed to do life next door and work together on projects as well as co-host events throughout the year. Stop by and visit the next time you’ve got a free afternoon.
