FishHawk Resident Opens Mug Shots Coffee Cabin in Riverview

Don’t blink! Across from Riverview High School, located at 10022 Cristina Dr., is a new coffee stand especially for coffee lovers. Theresa Canfield, of FishHawk Ranch, offers customers both hot and cold coffee drinks made with premium beans shipped from Washington State, the home of coffee stands.

A former Washington resident, Canfield moved here four years ago and was surprised there aren’t any coffee stands around. “In Washington, you find coffee stands on every corner,” she said. She found the cute “log” building on Craigslist and thinking the heavily-traveled Boyette Road would be an ideal location, she decided to lease the property from Journey Church.

Canfield also offers smoothies blended with real ice cream in flavors including cotton candy and bubble gum, Italian sodas and an extensive selection of tea drinks. Visit Mug Shots’ Facebook page or e-mail
