Montour Coffee House is ready for business

MONTOUR FALLS—Even without a grand opening, the Montour Coffee House is already drawing in customers.
Last Thursday, Feb. 18, the shop was packed in the morning. Sonja Croft, manager, said all tables were occupied and there was still a line of people. The coffee shop, located on the first floor of the Montour House in Montour Falls, had a “soft opening” Feb. 4. There was also a ribbon-cutting Tuesday, Feb. 23.
The coffee shop is open Monday to Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bruce Nelson, developer for the Montour House renovation project, owns the shop.
Croft explained the Montour Coffee House is a full espresso bar, which also offers homemade food, from breakfast sandwiches and soups to muffins.
She said she loves baking, so making homemade foods is more of a perk to the job. Croft added the muffins, scones, and cookies are made that day. She explained she makes everything but the cookies first thing in the morning, and then does cookies throughout the day.
The Montour Coffee House is divided into two rooms, with the coffee bar and some seating in the front. The back room offers much more seating, and can be used to hold meetings. Croft explained Schuyler Hospital has already booked the room for a board meeting this week. The coffee house also offers WiFi, which is shared by the residents living in the apartments upstairs.
There are currently three other employees besides Croft. She explained Nelson’s assistant, Maggie Martin, approached her to see if she wanted the job. Croft was previously working for Storylines Bookstore in Watkins Glen, which has since closed.
Croft explained the store’s initial customers were the construction workers in the building. She said when the coffee house’s staff was learning to use the new espresso/cappuccino maker, “the guys lined right up to try it.” Now, she said people are coming from the bank and Schuyler Hospital offices in the Montour House. Croft added people are coming in from the pharmacy, post office, and even the Falls Home.
