LEHANI’S COFFEHOUSE AND DELI/PORT TOWNSEND CHOCOLATE COMPANY
After twelve years of serving the residents and visitors of Port Townsend, LEHANI’S
paused to refurbish and refresh their coffeehouse, deli and chocolate company at 221 Taylor Street, Port Townsend. “Twelve years of doing what we do has given us a level of mastery that we are proud to offer our community. Lehani’s new space is a better reflection of our passion and imagination. We’ve seen our vision become a reality, and we couldn’t have done it without our community here on the Olympic Peninsula. Our re-opening celebration is our way of saying thank you to all the people who have supported us over the years,” say co-owners Lynn Hamlin-LeMaster and Bill LeMaster.
Lehani’s proudly invites the community to pop in and see the renewed space during Gallery Walk, on February 1st
. Lynn and Bill will be in attendance as well as local artist, Luke J. Tornatzky, whose artwork is on display. Complimentary chocolate and coffee will be served from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.
Lehani’s Coffeehouse and Deli, in Port Townsend, is an ongoing love story. Husband and wife team, Lynn and Bill LeMaster, own the business and spend their days working side by side. The Coffeehouse is a reflection of their relationship, and also of their individual passions. Bill has always loved cooking healthy and imaginative foods, and Lynn has a passion for chocolate and coffee. They combined these pursuits to create Lehani’s Coffeehouse and Deli, which is also the proud home of Port Townsend Chocolate Company
. “It’s not just the two of us who are star-crossed,” says Lynn Hamlin-LeMaster, “the coffee bean and the cacao bean also make a perfect couple.”
The love story doesn’t end there. Upon arriving in Port Townsend twelve years ago, Lynn and Bill quickly fell in love with this community and with the natural beauty that surrounds us here. “We have always striven to make Lehani’s a truly LOCAL business.”
To Lynn and Bill that means that all produce, oils, spices and dry goods are purchased fresh, from local farmers and the Food Co-Op. It means that dairy products, free range eggs and chicken come from North West farms. It means that customers are getting fresh, organic food, and that everyone who walks in will find something good to eat. “We always have vegetarian, vegan and gluten free choices. It’s part of how we honor the diversity in this community.”
Lynn and Bill also participate in town events, donate to local organizations, and are members of the Main Street Alliance and the Jefferson Chamber of Commerce. “We utilize local businesses and craftspeople for everything, from printing, to re-modeling our kitchen.”
