The Coffee Den is located in the historic downtown Manchester, Iowa. The structure was built in 1876 with an Italianate architectural style. In the 1940’s, it was renovated into a new, upscale restaurant called ‘The Coffee Den.’ The Coffee Den closed in the 1960’s and was used by various businesses until 2007.
Penny & Mike Sebeny purchased and renovated the building in 2007, with the dream of creating a high quality coffee shop with the charm and elegance of a 130+ year old italianate architectural style building, combined with the sophistication of a modern coffee house. You will feel the old-world charm of the 19th century when you visit, highlighted by the painstaking restoration of the original tin ceiling and brickwork.
