True to the word for coffee, community, conversation

It’s true, you can now get fine brewed coffee at Lyndon. On Oct. 7, 2017, Lyndon’s new coffee house, True Brew, opened its doors to an eager crowd of coffee lovers. Last week, Lyndon city officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony, welcoming Micah and Marla Bryant and their new espresso bar and bistro at 804 Topeka Ave.

Micah Bryant said the coffee house has been months in the making, with the family and friends transforming the former gas station building into a bistro with full espresso bar. The building has served several businesses over the years and was last a gift shop.

Bryant, who also serves as pastor at Mt. Pleasant Community Church, said his love for fine coffee and espresso bars inspired him to open the coffee house in Lyndon.

“I really enjoyed going to coffee shops and hanging out and studying,” Bryant said. “I wanted to open one here to share with my community something I liked to do.”

Now, with a motto of “community, coffee, conversation”, the family-operated business offers a welcoming spot to hang out and enjoy a variety of coffee choices, all served with Micah’s java expertise. Or if you’re not in the mood for coffee, breakfast or lunch is on the bistro’s menu along with fresh baked pastries. And for ice cream lovers, the bistro has a freezer full with a variety of flavors and treats such as shakes and smoothies.

The atmosphere of the coffee house is homey, with spots to relax and talk with friends, or sit in the corner and study. On site wi-fi is available for those who need to be interconnected while enjoying an espresso or cappuccino.

Micah said the original plan was for the business to be family operated, with him and Marla and their children working there, but since opening day they’ve had more customers than anticipated and have now hired more employees. Plans are also in the works to add a drive-through to quickly serve on-the-go commuters.

So if you’re looking for a cup of Joe, or conversation, or just want to connect to your community, stop by True Brew 6 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday, or 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. For more information, contact the Bryants at 785-756-4140.
