The Coffee House

/ Updated on August 13, 2014

It’s all about cookies, houses, croissants, floorplans, coffee and new construction at the new Schell Brothers Homes and The Point Coffee House & Bake Shoppe installation down by the Boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach. These two long-established operations (The Point is an extension of the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel) have teamed up to sell a little coffee, pastries, desserts and sweet goodies to potential homebuyers.

And when I went in to take the photos in the gallery, the place was packed. Who wooda thought!?!? It’s nicely laid out, with attractive displays that certainly draw the eye. People were noshing, sipping and browsing the various dioramas. It’s like a perpetual open-house — for lots of houses at the same time.

The Coffee House is open daily from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. at 18 Rehoboth Avenue (on the south side near Spice & Tea Exchange). Don’t know why you’d want to call them, but if you feel the need, 302-212-5163. But do drop by. It’s an interesting example of clever co-branding.

"My goal is to promote Rehoboth Beach dining while remaining honest and impartial. I don’t gush unless a place deserves it, and I don’t pull punches, either. With so many good places to eat around here, it just doesn’t make sense to waste the calories — or the money — on anything less." View all articles written by The Rehoboth Foodie

    Checking out The Coffee House on Rehoboth Avenue for a breakfast meeting. The new joint venture between Schell Brothers & The Point Coffee House. Visually gorgeous fittings (what else would you expect from Schell Brothers?), comfortable environment, and all the great coffee, pastries, and assorted food items, and friendly customer service one expects from The Point Coffee House. Thank you. Great job. One small request though – please add china cups for inside seating. Espresso tastes so much better when not in paper/plastic. If I were being fussy I’d also add real cutlery and plates. It’s hard to eat with plastic flatware. But for a coffee house, definitely china for beverages! I miss the clinking china sounds one gets from a tea shop/coffee house in Europe!
