When Patty Jones and Deidre Buttz opened their coffee business Sisters at Heart in June of 2019, the local community welcomed them with open arms. It was the first time the smaller community of Corydon would be graced with a coffee shop that many large cities have access to.
Shannon (Hook) Davis began working at Sisters at Heart just a few short months following the opening and initially looking at the opportunity as a fun way to get out of the house and off the farm for a few days a week. With Jones and Buttz both holding other fulltime jobs beyond the coffee shop, Davis let them know her interest in purchasing the business from them.
“I let them know if they were interested in selling I was interested in buying,” said Davis.
Davis officially took over ownership of Sisters at Heart on Oct. 29 and while many of the previous regular menu items continue to be offered, she has introduced new changes with her new ownership.
“With the hours, we are now open Mondays and Tuesdays from 7 to 11 a.m. for breakfast and lunch now,” Davis stated. “We are now only open on Saturdays every other weekend on the second and fourth Saturday of the month. We were really hit and miss on Saturdays before so that is one change we made.”
Along with the addition of hours on Mondays and Tuesdays, Davis is also introducing additional dessert options on days they are open. The frosted cinnamon rolls, caramel and caramel-pecan rolls are still a customer favorite that Davis will offer along with the new featured items.
The lunch options will remain the same including the popular chicken salad crossiant and turkey raspberry panini. A new chicken pesto panini has been added to the menu and is becoming a customer favorite as well.
“Just this week we added about 10 new drinks also,” added Davis. “I am still waiting on some new syrups for some new options also.”
Davis states the iced caramel mocha and the cowboy latte, frappe or iced coffee are some favorite drink options.
“The cowboy is white chocolate and blackberry and tastes like a blackberry cheesecake is what everyone says,” she mentioned. “We are always open to experiment with drinks also.”
Sisters at Heart offers drink punchcards where after the fifth drink purchase, the sixth one is free. Gift cards are also available to purchase.
When Davis isn’t in the coffee shop she can be found spending time with family including attending her high school daughters Sidney, junior and freshman Shaye’s sporting events or spending time with other other family members including her husband Matt, daughter Samantha and her husband Josh, daughter Savannah, her fiance Ben and their son Barrett or with her stepson Laredo and fiance Kari and their daughter Emmy. Davis and husband Matt also spend time farming and running a saw mill.
“I just think it’s a really neat thing that Corydon finally has a coffee shop,” said Davis in closing. “I think a lot of people really like it and I didn’t wana let it go.”
