Stanton’s Daily Grind coffee shop will officially open on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at 7:00 a.m., with a brief ceremony at 10:30 a.m. The coffee shop is located at the historic Garden Center Market adjacent to Hepler’s Hardware at 814 U.S. Route 119N, Suite 100, New Stanton, PA 15672. Located just east of the interchange of I-76 and I-66 at the edge of Youngwood, visitors can access the coffee shop directly from the northbound lane of Route 119, or southbound by the traffic light at Burton Avenue.
The Daily Grind’s menu features teas, and freshly-made coffee made with La Prima beans roasted in Pittsburgh. A selection of light fare is complemented by local honey, maple syrup, and Stanton Milling’s flour products. The summer menu will grow to include iced coffees, iced teas, and blended fruit beverages.
Stanton Milling, today a division of Hepler’s Town & Country Enterprises, Inc., has roots dating back 165+ years. The mill property on Sewickley Creek was purchased in 1851 by Israel Painter, who then built a five-story brick and stone mill on the site in 1853. The current recipes, dating to circa 1900 and owners James F. Stanton & Sons, were acquired by the Hepler family after they purchased the business in 1947.
Historic images of the mill building, plus a few rare photos of the mill’s interior, adorn the walls of the new coffee shop. Décor also includes mill artifacts such as rustic scoops and carts, pulley wheels, and the building’s 1853 date stone, complemented by table tops made of reclaimed Pennsylvania barn wood.
Located on the footprint of the former Garden Center Restaurant, known in the 1960s as the ‘Gateway to Scenic Laurel Highlands,’ the new Daily Grind also serves as a gateway to the region and displays a brochure rack of local tourism destinations beneath a community bulletin board. Free wifi and a selection of newspapers, magazines, and books are available to coffee shop patrons.
The Stanton Daily Grind logo features a traditional grinding stone behind a coffee cup to highlight the family’s mill history and the connection between these past and current business ventures.
Starting May 7, hours of operation will be Monday – Saturday, 7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. For more information, contact Stanton Daily Grind at (724) 635-3952, firstname.lastname@example.org, or P.O.
