Once owner Jim Reiser and his girlfriend passed by and saw the ‘For Rent’ sign on the hill, they thought it would be a great place to open a friendly coffeehouse for the residents of Antioch to come and sit and enjoy a cup of coffee. Three short months later, The Latte Cafe was up and running. The TLC delivers high quality expressos and coffees; spending a considerable amount of time visiting different coffee roasters and choosing the perfect beans.

The Latte Cafe recently opened at the corner of Rt. 173 and 83 on Feb. 20 and has already made a big impact in sales and getting involved in the local community.

“We just wanted to be a community coffee house, a place where people could come and relax and have a good cup of coffee,” said Reiser.

Not only does Reiser want to be a part of the community, but also help out as much as he can.

“We want to help the community. We want to promote and support Antioch Community High School. Wanda Teddy (Fine Arts Department Chair of ACHS) and I have been talking about teaming up and supporting both the cafe and the Fine Arts department,” said Reiser. “We hope to do a ‘Sequoit Drink of the Month.’ For every five percent we make, it gets donated to the Booster Club. We really want to be involved in the community and help out as much as we can.”

As the weather starts to warm up, Reiser wants to take advantage of the amount of space by hosting art shows, live entertainment and the traditional car show.
