• Lindy Lou’s Coffee and Deli owners Tammy and Michael Dziak recently added a second operation, Lindy Lou’s … Too, located westerly down 320th Street where it intersects with Hoyt Road.

The new structure, shaped like a coffeepot, features two drive-through sides. Handcrafted espresso, smoothies and other beverages are available as well as quick breakfast and lunch fare.

The couple’s first operation, the coffee bar and deli, opened in January and is located on the corner of Pacific Highway South and 348th Street. In addition to espresso and other beverages, it offers expanded breakfast and lunch menus for take out, delivery or eating inside the deli’s friendly, comfortable atmosphere.

To help a more sustainable future, the company incorporates reclaimed wood beams into its furniture and offers antiques as a decorative accent. Also, the company uses a quickly growing renewable resource, bamboo, in some pieces.
