Just a few blocks away from Front Beach is a quiet little coffee house called The Greenhouse on Porter.
“We operate out of an old greenhouse we turned into a coffee shop,” said Kait Sukiennik, co-owner with Jessie Zenor. “We hold different events like a trivia night, when we donate the proceeds to a different charity every time. We have a poetry night, yard sales, we offer local music, and a lawn outside for kids. We’re not just a coffee shop but a place you can hang out with family and friends while you enjoy a beer or coffee.”
Another unique feature of the Greenhouse on Porter is their biscuit tournament.
“This will be the third year we’re doing it,” Sukiennik said. “We call for submissions for biscuit recipes, then around September we narrow them down and let our customers try them and vote on which biscuits advance to the next round in the tournament. It usually lasts through December.”
The Greenhouse on Porter is a true gem of Jackson County, allowing people from all over to come together in one place.
“People come together from all walks of life, providing a place that allows us to get to know each other better.”
