Established in 1996 by Brenda Hosteler-Kauffman and her husband Tony, The Electric Brew got its name from what was supposed to be the original location, a shoe repair store called ‘The Electric Shoe.’ However, knowing it would not be large enough, they changed location and became the first coffeehouse in the area. Today, it’s owned by a different family who has added to the already much-loved coffee house. It offers visitors and residents great drinks and tasty menus, plus they roast their own coffee. You can pair a baked good like apricot scones with a café au lait or a cup of soup with a sandwich.
