Things have really come together for Shunji Yoshii, owner of Thalia Coffee Roasters, at the Nogita intersection on Route 54. Six years in the same spot, he opened under the banner of Honey Coffee and slowly added this and that to make the cafe a popular stopover for locals, tourists, and cyclists. Roasting mostly South American and African beans, his flavors are not unlike before but include some new accents and notes that Yoshii hopes will distinguish himself and appeal to locals.
The menu includes all the regular specialty coffees as well as classic beach cafe snacks such as almond toast, cheese toast, and pancakes. Hangout on the spacious deck or chill inside where there’s a variety of seating options, displays of art, accessories, and fashions. There’s even a kid’s room and ten rental bicycles and events in the parking lot most weekends.
