Featured West End Sponsor- Porter Cafe’

The West End now proudly features a small, quaint grab-n-go café that serves award-winning Equator coffee + espresso. The Porter Café is the result of a collaborate effort of  mother/ daughter team Melissa Lepley-Schurtz and Verlene Morgan

They bring their entrepreneur, small business and culinary experience together to create this cool café that serves specialty coffee drinks, smoothies, warm and toasty breakfast or lunch panini,  quesadilla’s and delicious baked goods. Their “Iced Coffee Shakerato” is so amazingly good, made with a double shot of espresso and a bit of sweetened condensed milk or coconut milk (which ever you prefer) then it is shaken with ice like a cocktail. Melissa also offers her scrumptiously delicious prize winning New York Cheesecake.

 You’ll find Porter Café’ tucked away inside the historic De Turk Winery building- across from the DeTurk Dog Park at 808 Donahue Street. Santa Rosa. CA  Hours: Mon thru Fri // 8am – 2pm. It’s a perfect place to grab a coffee, light lunch or treat without leaving the neighborhood.
