An unexpected place to find sweet little treasures ( of the inedible variety) is the Fraiche Cup coffee shop in downtown Bremerton. Close to the ferry terminal and the beautiful new waterfront park, Fraiche Cup offers several design surprises. Aside from their wonderfully delicious pastries and Torrefazione Italia coffee drinks, you will find a seasonal mix of melamine dinnerware, gift/decor items and a rotating gallery of artwork to purchase. There are even few good design magazines to browse through while you sip your drink of choice in comfy leather club chairs.
The original artwork currently featured at the shop is by local artist, Jenna. More of her edgy work and her contact information can be found at soopajdelux.com.
I was also really inspired by the lighting! They have the cutest collection of pendants hanging over the coffee bar. A take on this concpet would really cozy up a dining room, eat in kitchen, or reading nook.
Fraiche Cup is a joint effort by Jennifer Kreifels and Kim Beckett. Next time you are in need of a fun hostess gift, stop in and see what's new! You can also find Fraiche Cup's yummy drinks at the Sun Prairie Trading Company , a great gift store in the Silverdale Mall.
