The Village Coffeehouse exists to be a gathering place where shared lives exist by creating positive community, restoring significance, and contributing to the well-being of one another to the glory of God.
The vision for The Village was born in the summer of 2018, but our passion for authentic community has always been a part of who we are. As our owners began pursuing this vision, they asked themselves “why”. Why respond by opening a coffee shop and bakery? Answering this question was sobering for our team. Our city and community lacked a positive gathering place where high-quality, accessible coffee and bakery products could be enjoyed. We were missing opportunities to tap into the talents and abilities of our neighbors. A fair chance hiring experience and accessible job opportunities did not exist. These, and so many other reasons, perpetuate the “Us vs. Them” culture that affects our society and ultimately creates tension and hostility.

We desire to meet people where they are in life. To better love our neighbors and to recognize those who are otherwise unseen. To bring unity in the midst of a diverse community. To discover and activate the best in every person. To create a culture of encounter where everyone is seen, and valued. We want to both passionately pursue this reality and provide excellent products and experiences at the same time.
We are instigated by what we believe to be true: that life is precious and worth living. We refuse to merely exist. Instead, we pursue a life of meaning and purpose, fulfillment and joy. The world is not yet as it ought to be. Neither is our city. Neither are we. Yet, we reject apathy and despair. We engage the world, our community, and one another to make an impact for good. So, we intend to press through narcissism, isolation and self-sufficiency, striving to live in authentic community.
We hope you'll join us at The Village to be a part of our community. So swing by downtown Sulphur to enjoy your favorite beverage and baked good, and bring a friend while you're at it! Join us inside or in the drive through at 121 S Huntington Street, Monday-Saturday from 6am-8pm.
