Goodbye to Kai's Koffee in Pelham

Our favorite coffee shop in Pelham, or anywhere really, closed on July 19. We started going to Kai's Koffee at it's first location in the city and followed them to the new one on US 31 across from the post office. We've spent many pleasant hours there since then downing excellent coffee and other drinks and eating scones, muffins or wraps. 

All things must pass, but we'll miss the place....a few photos and more comments are below. The photos, taken between November 2014 and July 2019 are in roughly reverse chronological order.

 Buck Creek Coffee opened in the location on July 23. We'll be giving them a try and wish them success! Stacie Mullins will remain as manager of the shop.  

In July 2015 I posted a piece on "Ghostly Signs of Pelham's Video Past"  that included the image below. That slot was eventually covered up by the sign shown above. 

Dianne brought one of her coffee plants to the shop; it's even produced a few beans!

The coffee plant will have a new home at KTL Insurance next door. 

Here's the coffee plant in November 2016. 

Part of the decor of the shop included many humorous signs related to coffee. 


  1. Just a quick correction from the owner at Buck Creek Coffee House: We loved Kai's Koffee, and it inspired us to open here in the same location, but we did not "reopen as" and we are not affiliated with the Kai brand. We appreciate your willingness to try the new coffee house, and wish Kai the best.

  2. Thanks for pointing that out, and I've corrected the sentence!
