Thank you for being a customer of Coffee @ Hardware on the Square!
It is our goal to have the best coffee shop in the best hardware store in San Augustine County!
In August of 2017, we decided to open a coffee shop. We drew some plans and started cleaning out a spot in the hardware store to put a coffee shop. We decided to clean off the brick wall so that we could decorate. When Joe pulled down the first section of peg board, some stucco fell off. It revealed the word Delicious. We began to clear off the rest of the wall, showing red paint and the word Refreshing. A quick decision was made to remove the suspended ceiling and clear off the rest of the wall. One of the very early examples of an outdoor Coca-Cola sign was found inside the hardware store.
In 1890, there was a fire that destroyed the entire square in San Augustine. The building next to the hardware store was built back very quickly. The Thomas Cusack Sign Company was hired to paint a Coca-Cola sign on the side of the building. In 1920, the owners of the hardware store rebuilt the building we now occupy. The Coca-Cola sign was covered with stucco, and it remained covered until 2017. No one alive even remembered the sign being there.
Our opening day of the coffee shop was a great success! We opened the last Saturday of October 2017. Every year, the San Augustine County Chamber of Commerce holds the Sassafras Festival. We opened for business during the festival. Lines formed out the door!
We specialize in super fresh coffee. It is a special house blend formulated by the owner. The coffee is roasted weekly and shipped fresh to the coffee shop.
This year, we decided to make a dining area. We added to the coffee shop space, and now we have a great little area where you can come and sit to enjoy your great cup of coffee.
We also serve breakfast at the coffee shop. We have a great menu of breakfast sandwiches and cinnamon rolls. We even have a Keto option.

I want to take this opportunity to share with you the message that changed my life and the life of my family.
Christ does truly offer forgiveness to everyone everywhere. The first time I saw this message, I knew I had to put that sign in our coffee shop. It has been on the wall since day one! COFFEE – Christ Offers Forgiveness For Everyone Everywhere.
When I was just four years old, I realized my need for Jesus. I had stolen a cupcake at school. Dad explained to me that stealing was a sin. I had been in Sunday School every week of my life, and I knew that sinners go to hell. I realized I was a sinner. Dad told me that Jesus had paid for that sin, and I needed to accept His gift as payment for my sin. I did that when I was four years old.
