Ferroni’s Allegro Cafe is celebrating its fifth anniversary this month at their location in the Shafer Building in Middlefield. Chief barrista, Becky Ferroni, is the energetic, friendly owner who has fulfilled her dream of operating a coffee shop.
Since opening in 2013, business has quadrupled. Lunch is also offered and Becky’s mother Sheryl does the baking. Hours are Monday through Friday 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to noon. Becky is one of 12 children and five of them work at the cafe on various days.
The Shafer Building turned 100 last year. It has a second story where local groups, such as pastors or parents, prayer groups, or counseling groups can grab a coffee and head upstairs. Becky does know everyone’s name and enjoys her Cafe extended family.
