Looking for a new business venture, Chuck and Jill Scheffner purchased Taft Square in October 2006.  Other than some cosmetic remodeling and the addition of Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream, the business remained the same.  The coffee shop is a popular destination in the morning, afternoon and early evenings.  During the summer months, ice cream becomes even more popular.

Taft Square patrons come from all around the area including Eagle, Helenville, and Sullivan – plus lots of Palmyra folks who enjoy great coffee and conversation.  The coffee shop complex is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Palmyra at 209 Taft Street.

When they first opened a masseuse had a salon in Taft Square.  When she moved out five years ago, Cherie Drays launched her hair salon in the space.  Affordable Hair Care shares the building with the coffee shop, laundromat and tanning salon.

Whether you have laundry to do, need a tan or hair cut or style or just want a great cup of coffee in a relaxing atmosphere, Taft Square has it all.

Both Chuck and Jill are active members of the Palmyra Area Chamber of Commerce.  In addition, Chuck serves on the Village of Palmyra Planning Commission.

Taft Square is open seven days a week and they can be reached at (262) 495-4996.  Better yet, stop in a fresh, hot cup of coffee or latte – or a dish or cone of Chocolate Shoppe ice cream.
