Throughout our short little life in the beautiful West End of Greenville, we have come to know our neighbors as friends. Our neighboring business owners, and the wonderful people who work and play downtown have become an important part of our everyday happenings here at Rainer's. We enjoy the "West End neighborhood gatherings" we experience, the conversation, and the relationships we have created! Becoming a positive part of the lives of those around us is an integral part of who we are. We love to make people smile!
If you've ever came into Rainer's, you know we love to explore and try new things! We even have a section of our menu devoted to our current experiments, and you can bet there's always something new, exciting, and most importantly, yummy! It occurred to us, while looking around, that we have a neighbor who just happens to roast some seriously great coffee. The West End Coffee Company is right around the corner from our chillin' little art gallery flavored "tall dude" cafe...so it was a no-brainer!
We met with Tad, the Co-founder and President of this West End coffee roasting heaven, and the rest is history! We gathered the troops and headed for a visit to check out what West End Coffee is all about. The simple act of opening the door and walking inside is a pleasure all by itself! The aroma is unbelievable...and the coffee, it's even better! While we were there, we all drank a lot of coffee...well, all except our tall dude Rainer. He took the non-coffee-drinking, information absorbing approach. We all had a great time, experimented with various roasts, and made the decision to welcome West End Coffee to Rainer's! Woo hoo!

Check them out, we love 'em!
Oh, and the good new continues! While Rainer was chillin' during our coffee tasting experimentations at West End, he even discovered some sweet new concepts! So we're expanding our beverage selections to include some kickin' tea smoothies and blended ice coffees. Can it get any better?
Who knows what's going to be next around here?! Guess you'll just have to wait and see. One thing's for sure though, you'll be hooked on our new tasty concoctions in no time at all! Just sayin'. ;-)
So, what time is at the Tall Dude Cafe anyway?
|...because we're AWESOME!|
Soooo, we're going to be closed Tuesday & Wednesday, August 3rd & 4th.
We're headed down to help clean up the Gulf.
Even though we'll be super tired & hydration deprived, we'll still be back, & open, on Thursday, August 5th.
Hope to see you then!!
Check out our very own Slow Shirts online here from the Christopher Park Gallery. You can also come into Rainer's & take one home today!
Here's a little Quick History from Washington's very own Slow Shirts: Slow Loris designs are original drawings hand screened in small editions right here in our studio on Guemes Island. In our 12 years of business, we've never used computers for any designing steps in our illustration process, so every line and color separation you see, was made with my very own double-jointed fingers using an ink pen, xacto knife, and rubylith film. The drawing then, after being exposed onto a screen, is printed by a set of hairy knuckled fingers onto clothing, paper and accessories. This handmade quality is the unique difference you can count on. Team Slow is a partnership between artist and founder Jessica Lynch and newly retired fisherman turned screen printer, Arlo Rumpff. We screen print from a solar powered studio on Alternative apparel organic cotton clothing and American Apparel sweatshop free clothing, as well as various FLA (fair labor association) brands.
