If you want to start your morning off with something special, look no further than Grayt Coffee House. Located in the beautiful Grayt Grounds of Monet Monet, this family-owned and operated coffee shop offers hugs and fellowship along with a grayt cup of coffee.

“When you come in here, you become part of the family,” said Cheri Peebles, owner of Grayt Coffee House. “If you’re here, you’re going to get a hug. It’s just how we operate — we’re one big family.”

And the Grayt family is truly passionate about their coffee — offering locally-roasted, Fair Trade organic coffee.

“Coffee isn’t just coffee — it’s important stuff,” Cheri said. “Getting your coffee fresh is awesome. I get it one day after its roasted. There’s nothing better. And our customers can taste the difference.”

Cheri said she loves surrounding herself with people, and the coffee-drinking ones are her “ministry.” Opening the small coffee shop was a way to share that love with locals and visitors alike — in a “very eclectic, quirky little spot.”

“Grayt Grounds is the perfect place for our coffee house,” she said. “You can come in, grab a cup of coffee and walk around the gardens. We even offer breakfast items and pastries, all made in-house.”

Grayt Coffee House also cares about supporting the local community. Each month the shop features a local artist, displaying the artwork all throughout the gardens. And you can join them in their “listening living room” to enjoy sounds from local musicians.
