Q: Can I

A: Yes! We
do frequently reserve areas of the cafe for people. We currently have
several groups that meetup reguarly such as: knitting
groups, book clubs, discussion groups, gaming and writing groups. We
have also hosted baby showers, book signings and book release parties.
We cap our
reservations at a 25 person maximum. The 25 person maximum includes
other reservations that may be occurring at the same time.
request for this service is that people make purchases (no additional
charges) and that the group does not solicit customers. We do allow
passive solicitation such as a sign(s) to be placed on your table(s)
that could read, as an example, "We are a book club now accepting new
readers. Come join us!".

Anyone who answers can help you. Be prepared by knowing what day and
time you would like to make a reservation, the number you expect to
attend, and to give a name and contact number.
Q: Tell me about
your "Art Wall", I am an artist and would like to display my art at
your store, what do I need to do?
Once a month we feature a new artist(s) and their original work at The
Coffee Tree in concordance with Night on the Town (2nd Friday of each
month). We host only original paintings or photographs, no statues,
sculptures or other pieces of work. We have three walls we allow an
artist to use. If an artist can fill only one wall we may do multiple
artists at once. This is a very popular free service we provide and the
wall(s) are normally booked out a year in advance.
addition to allowing artists to hang their original work we also allow
displays of personal biographical and contact information. If an artist
wishes to sell their work that is exclusively between the artist and
buyer. The Coffee Tree does not conduct any transactions on behalf of
either party nor do we ask for a commission.
If you wish to
display your art at The Coffee Tree contact us at this
