Brookings’ newest coffee shop comes with an island attitude

Sherry Martinez brings her island dreams to Brookings with the Hawaiian-themed Jitter Hut, located in the Subway sandwich shop.
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.

  • SEC to Investigate BofA Over Customer-Protection Rules: WSJ
    Bank of America Corp. is being investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission over whether the lender broke rules designed to safeguard customer accounts, according to the Wall Street Journal. The bank’s Merrill Lynch unit used a variety of large, complex trades and loans over a three-year period to save on funding costs and free up billions of dollars in cash and securities for trading that the firm would otherwise have needed to keep off-limits, the newspaper reported Tuesday, citing people familiar with the inquiry without naming them. Bank of America stopped the trades in mid-2012, and now the SEC is investigating whether the strategy violated customer-protection rules and if the company misled regulators about its actions, the paper said. The strategies were in place when Bank of America bought Merrill Lynch in 2009 and the company “fully complied with the rules designed to safeguard client funds,” Bill Halldin, a spokesman for the Charlotte, North Carolina lender, said in an e-mailed statement.
