December 20, 2019 – (Key West, FL). Custom House Museum visitors can now enjoy their new “café”

Thanks to the recently opened Custom House Café, owned and operated by Old Town Bakery’s Niall Bowen and Ela Krysztofiak, visitors to the Custom House Museum and its fabulous museum store can get cultured AND caffeinated as they shop for the holidays and enjoy the museum’s three floors of exhibits and displays.

Located on the Custom House Museum’s sweeping veranda, the café offers delicious sandwiches and homemade baked goods pre-made at the Old Town Bakery, salads, Cuban coffee, juice and other cold beverages, beer, and wine, and offers a twenty-percent discount for locals.

Seating is limited to a handful of tables, though the museum’s outdoor bench seating and sprawling porches provide ample space to relax while snacking.

“The opportunity to do something creative with the unused space on the Custom House Museum’s beautiful porch that would also benefit the museum sounded like a great project to me,” says Naill, who will be operating the café with wife Ela.
