Coffee Station features soup, sundaes, sandwiches – and of course, coffee

November 2008 Posted in Food & Drink

Home-town gal Christy Peters and her husband, Daryl, are shaking up the Coffee Station – a former mid-century gasoline station overlooking Silver Creek in downtown Silverton – with their coffee drinks, Italian sodas, fruit smoothies, and, oh yes, milkshakes.

Peters keeps things moving with regular and espresso coffee, milk steamers, blended or iced cold coffee drinks (up to 24 oz.), specialty espresso concoctions and milkshakes made the old-fashioned way.

Her specialty these days is an espresso milkshake. “It’s made with cold espresso shots and ground coffee beans, vanilla ice cream and milk,” said Peters. “I had to learn that one after a lady came in and asked for it..”

Coffee Station offers 12 flavors of Cascade Glacier ice cream out of Eugene. “It’s considered gourmet, a thicker, creamier ice cream,” she said. “We vary the flavors but we do keep the favorites in.” The ice cream comes in cones, a cup, or as a sundae – topped with a choice of syrups, nuts, whipped cream, and a cherry. On Sunday, sundaes are $3; in a waffle bowl, they’re $3.50.

With the cool days of fall, Coffee Station serves chili dogs with cheese and onions for $3 and a chili dog, chips and soda for $4, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

A choice of two soups accompanied by French bread is available, as are special lunch combos. There’s both indoor and outdoor seating.

There are bagels, muffins and biscotti, plus hot breakfast sandwiches. “We’re trying to have food to go, where people can just pop in,” Peters said.

Allann Brothers Coffee is sold for $10.95 per lb., ground if you like.

“I have noticed a lot of people are concerned about the businesses in downtown and try to support us,” Peters said. “I think people in Silverton really care about one another.”

Coffee Station, 206 S. Water St., is open from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday – Saturday and 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Sunday.
