Steeped in Charm

Story & Photography Provided

Paul and Laura Jacquin are no strangers to great business ideas and repurposing existing structures. As creators and owners ofCafé Euclid downtown Greenwood’s Vino Villa since 2011, they could write the playbook on both. So when the property just behind Vino Villa became available in 2014, they purchased it, without a firm plan, but confident that the right idea would develop at the right time.

Patience paid off and a vision came into focus as they opened Café Euclid this summer on July 13.

The residence-turned-coffeehouse is steeped in charm. The large front and back porches provide plenty of outdoor seating overlooking the pleasant neighborhood. Paying homage to the location on Euclid Avenue, a large mural of Greek mathematician Euclid greets you as you enter. Each room offers cozy seating areas with custom-made tables by craftsman Brian Kuchaes of Top Tier Tables. Locally created artwork, available for purchase, adorns the walls.

Just beyond is where you’ll find Café Euclid’s specialties. A variety of tempting pastries and desserts are available, and all are made fresh in-house daily. Pastry Chef Jourdan Wilhoit changes the menu weekly and seasonally. Recent treats include cherry pastries, pumpkin and white-chocolate scones with a maple glaze, and carrot cake. Scholars Inn Bakehouse provides the bagels, with which five unique sandwiches are created.

Café EuclidMost notable is the coffee. Tennessee-based roaster Frothy Monkey provides the coffee beans for the fresh drips. Customize your coffee, espressos or teas with any of the many syrups including Pumpkin Spice, White Chocolate and Toffee Nut, just to name a few.

Café Euclid is on the go, too. They’ve just begun taking preorders for office parties and holiday gatherings.
