Brewing Community—Broad Porch Coffee Co.

Have you heard the news?! Broad Porch Coffee Co has opened a new storefront location on Court Square!

Broad Porch is already a beloved community staple, with current locations in the S Main St Agora Downtown Market and on W Main Street Luray café in Luray. And now Broad Porch is welcoming us to their new storefront location in the heart of downtown – Court Square!

This café is a place you want to be! Chic, modern and completely renovated with lots of space and a variety of indoor and outdoor seating that immediately draws you in. Getting your Broad Porch caffeine fix has gotten even more exciting ~ especially with the addition of the full kitchen and menu. That’s right, you can now head into Broad Porch for snacks, full meals and after work drinks too! Talk about “running on small victories”! (IYKYK)

Q: Broad Porch is beloved by this community and it’s so exciting that you’ve just opened your third location! How did Broad Porch Coffee Co. come to be?

Jill: The story of broad porch is a long story short, Phil Duntemann and I wanted to do our own thing within the hospitality and restaurant industry and so we decided to team up and do it together!

Q: You have completely transformed your new building on Court Square for the custom feel of Broad Porch Coffee Co.! What was your favorite part of the renovation process?

Jill: It was exciting and a fun challenge to be able to figure out what aspects of the original character of the building could both preserve and showcase.

Q: What are the plans for your space in the Agora Downtown Market?

Q: Is there anything you would like to add?
