Recently, our team discovered this local shop and had a chance to chat with one of the wonderful
owners, Terri Pastrana. She shared with us that initially, she and her husband were looking to
open a coffee shop more than 10 years ago, but quickly found that a coffee shop alone was a
risky investment due to their surrounding competition. The husband and wife duo began to
conduct extensive research of ways in which they could be innovative and different, and
stumbled upon some South American cultural influences that their community didn’t offer.
Successfully, the two began promoting their vision by visiting festivals and participating at their
local farmers market to spread the word about their Frenchthemed establishment.
When we asked Terri what customers visiting their café could expect, she shared that when
entering the familyowned café, you will always be greeted at the door and feel invited. Inside,
there is a warm and cozy feel, where locally designed artwork is displayed all around the seating
”We are not an upscaled designed restaurant or major franchise, so as an independent
establishment, we do things a little different. We have a casual atmosphere with chalk board
styled menus, quick service, a friendly staff, and a loyalty program that our returning customers
can subscribe to for special offers, such as a free crepe.” –Terri Pastrana
In addition to serving some of the finest sweet and savory items on the menu, the Pastrana’s are
also actively involved in their local community. On the final Friday of every month, they offer an
artist reception with the Cary Art Loop to support local artists. The event is free and open to the
public, along with a local musician performing on the patio from 79PM. The Coffee and Crepes
team takes pride in giving back and supporting local charities as well, where they offer free chef
services for their auctions.
If there is one thing we know for sure; it’s that Coffee and Crepes is here to stay. The café is
continuing to thrive and has a catering business within their establishment. Not only do they
provide catering services, the chef’s will make a personal trip to your destination and prepare the
crepes right then and there. Take that for freshness!
Coffee and Crepes is sure to be the next big thing in their community and hopefully beyond!
Our team tried to get the scoop of long term endeavors from Mrs. Pastrana and she remained
excited, however, lowkey about what’s to come.
We learned that long term planning is in the works, however, it’s on the shhhhhh. For more information about Coffee and Crepes, visit: www.coffeeandcrepes.com
