Smith Coffee and Cafe in Eden Prairie, Minnesota is bringing the history of the Smith – Douglas – More House to life and making dreams come true. 

This unique coffee shop is located in the historic Smith – Douglas – More house and is carrying on the tradition that every owner of this house has done, providing a place for community.

Enjoy your favorite cup of coffee with friends or family in one of the cozy rooms in the house. Or reserve a space for business meetings, book clubs, quilt/knitting groups, or small family gatherings.

What makes this place even more special is that they roast their coffee beans daily, so you know you are getting quality coffee every time you buy coffee. And what is better than buying some fresh roasted coffee beans to bring home for your own homemade coffee.

I enjoyed a Pumpkin Spice Latte which is pumpkin, spice, and everything nice. My husband enjoyed the Smithereen Latte which is vanilla and orange syrup, orange spritz, cinnamon, espresso, and milk. Both of these Lattes are great flavors for fall! I would have to say out of the two of them, the Smithereen was my favorite because it was more flavorful. 

We also both got the Croissant Egg Sandwich which came with scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, arugula, and mayo on a croissant. The egg sandwich of all egg sandwiches! They can sell out of the croissants pretty fast so if you want to try this sandwich make sure to get there early. Check out their full menu HERE.

I can’t forget to mention that they also serve wine! Any place that has coffee and wine in my books is a great place for a community to come together.

Awoken From A Fresh Roasted Coffee Beans Dream

History of Smith’s Coffee and Cafe.

The historic Smith – Douglas – More House built in 1877 has always been a place for a community to gather. The farmhouse, originally built by the Smith family, was a stopping ground for passengers boarding at a nearby train station.

The Smith – Douglas – More House was named after the owners of the Historic building. Starting off with primary owner Sheldon Smith, who then past it off to his daughter who was married a Sheldon Douglas, who then sold the house to Earl More. Every single owner had welcomed people into the home.

Later, the house was turned over to the city of Eden Prairie. The Eden Prairie Historical Society didn’t want to turn the house into another museum because they wanted the community to continue to gather at this house and experience the history of it. So they converted it into a Dunn Brothers Coffee Shop.

So in 2006, the Schuster family decided to run the Dunn Brothers Coffee and continue the tradition of being the place to gather. While selling Dunn Brothers Coffee they started selling local bread and pastries from Rustica Bakery. Making Earl More proud because he use to invite onlookers in for coffee and pastries.

In 2016, Greg Hoyt, the owner of Rustica Bakery and Dogwood Coffee, wanted to expand his business to another location and couldn’t think of a better spot than the Smith – Douglas – More House. Hoyt agreed that the Schuster family was the right choice to keep as owners of the new location.

However, 2 years after doing business as Rustica, the Schuster family has realized that the coffee shop would work best as their own brand. So in 2018, Smith Coffee & Cafe was awoken from a fresh roasted coffee beans dream.
