By Staff | Dec 16, 2009

Bailey’s General Store opened its most recent addition on Saturday, known as Coffee Bar @ Bailey’s. Guests were able to sample the menu, which includes 37 varieties of hot and cold drinks.

“Coffee Bar @ Bailey’s is for our guests who were looking for a quality coffee drink that they could enjoy without the hassle of long lines or having to brew it at home,” said Richard Johnson, Bailey’s General Store general manager. “Bailey’s is where Sanibel shops and we are delighted now to be offering Sanibel’s ‘Best Coffee Bar None’.”

Both the 12th and 112th customers were each awarded a coupon book good for one free 16oz. drink on the 12th of every month for 12 months. Shirley from Richmond, Virginia was the 12th customer and Sanibel resident Lydia Lloyd was the 112th customer, both on Saturday afternoon.

Bailey’s General Store has contracted the day-to-day operations of Coffee Bar @ Bailey’s to Blanaid Colley and her staff of baristas and servers.

“We are so pleased to be able to serve the residents and visitors of Sanibel, and especially the guests of Bailey’s General Store,” said Colley, who is overseeing the operations of Coffee Bar @ Bailey’s.

Guests will enjoy espresso-based coffee drinks, including latts, espressos and cappuccinos, frappuccino-style cold drinks, smoothies and even Italian cream soda. Loyalty cards are available at the counter and reward customers with a free drink for every nine purchased.

Coffee Bar @ Bailey’s is open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. just inside the entrance to Bailey’s General Store, located at 2477 Periwinkle Way. A grand opening and Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 27 from 5 to 7 p.m.
