The Lafayette area has seen a recent increase in businesses and restaurants closing left and right. With so many new companies opening locations in town, it's hard to ignore that the smaller locally-owned businesses may be suffering as a result.

Coffee Dash in Lafayette offered more than just coffee. Their menu included a variety of energy teas, blended drinks, breakfast bagels, and croissant sandwiches. They also provided customers with reward stamp cards so frequent customers would be rewarded with a free drink every so often.


However, while the Dash Coffee crew came up with creative ways to drive business, like offering a 'Bagel of the Month', a seasonal menu, and one the largest selections of sugar-free flavor options, it wasn't enough to keep their doors open.

Coffee Dash is known for its excellent customer service and for providing a cozy atmosphere for students and working professionals to get their work done. They also had a drive-thru for extra convenience if you did not have time to go inside. Whether you went inside or used their drive-thru, you would always be met with a friendly barista who would be more than happy to make recommendations if you were unsure what to order.

They were constantly switching up their menu and listening to customer feedback to ensure there was something on the menu for everyone. Their last day of operation is Friday May 17th if you would like to pass by before their last day.

Support Coffee Dash Maurice
