INNISFAIL — Have a hankering for a cinnamon roll caramella or a black forest mocha?

These and other specialty and traditional drinks are now available in Innisfail at The Coffee Cottage. Open since May 1, the shop is owned by Jodi Desjardins, who also operates Years Left In Em next door.

The two businesses, which are located at 5112 49th Ave., are connected inside but also have separate outside entrances.

The Coffee Cottage, said Desjardins, serves a variety of beverages, as well as baked goods and light lunches.

“We do a really good breakfast square,” she said, adding that her husband, Joseph, looks after the baking.

The shop’s specialty coffees are attracting regular customers, with the cinnamon roll caramella the number 1 seller.

“It tastes exactly like a cinnamon bun,” said Desjardins.

The Coffee Cottage has seating for 35, including 10 on the patio.

“There are little tables in different rooms,” she said of the layout.

Hours are 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. During the summer, Saturday’s hours will be extended to 9 p.m., with live music planned for the patio.

Years Left In Em opened about a year and a half ago as a consignment store with furniture, antiques, wood-working products and art work. Desjardins added consignment clothing a few months ago, and has also set up an antique mall in the store with about 17 vendors.
