Sherry Martinez brings her island dreams to Brookings with the Hawaiian-themed Jitter Hut, located in the Subway sandwich shop.
A new coffee shop is in town, serving Hawaiian Kona coffee, fruit smoothies and a side of island attitude.

Three weeks ago Sherry Martinez brought her vision of Jitter Hut, an island-themed shop, to match her Hawaiian coffee.

Jitter Hut, located inside the Subway sandwich shop at 1006 Chetco Ave., features 100 percent Kona Coffee, in both liquid and bean form, and 100 percent fruit smoothies.

The island spirit comes through with “long board,” “short board” and “boogie board” (large-, medium- and small- sized drinks,) and beverages such as “Beach Bum Rush,” “Lava Bomb,” and “Rip Curl.”

The shop will also offer chocolate covered macadamia nuts, chocolate covered kona coffee beans and other treats, such as a macadamia nut hand-dipped in chocolate 200 times.

Martinez made a go of it in Florida, but it didn’t work out.

“As an Oregonian, I wanted to come home.” she said.

After looking into the options on the Oregon Coast, Martinez heard about the Subway location.

With her palm-tree carved tiki men, parrots and bamboo paneling, Martinez moved in.

The store will host grand-opening activities later this spring, including a “name the tiki” contest, with free drinks for three winners, Martinez said.

Jitter Hut is open 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and offers drive-through service, and both indoor and outdoor seating.

Jitter Hut can be reached at 541-412-2777.

    A U.S. appeals court is set hear a case whose outcome could make it harder for the government to prosecute insider trading and potentially jeopardize several high-profile guilty verdicts, including that of SAC Capital Advisors portfolio manager Michael Steinberg. The question facing the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York on Tuesday is one that has divided lower court judges: whether to be convicted of insider trading, the recipient of non-public information must know that the source of the tip benefited from the disclosure. The issue is at the heart of the appeal brought by Todd Newman, a former portfolio manager at the hedge fund Diamondback Capital Management, and Anthony Chiasson, co-founder of the hedge fund Level Global Investors.
