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.

  • Stocks likely to drift as investors await Fed, earnings
    Wall Street investors may find little reason to make big moves next week as they await monthly U.S. jobs data and any news that could change expectations for the first interest rate hike in almost a decade. The Labor Department report is due on Friday, when the stock market will be closed for Good Friday, leaving investors unable to trade on the data until the following week. In the meantime, investors will continue adjusting to lowered earnings forecasts for the first quarter and the uncertain direction of the dollar. Stocks have trended downward since rallying on the Federal Reserve's March 18 statement, in which it suggested a less-aggressive approach to raising interest rates than investors had expected.
  • Best Buy warns of profit hit as it consolidates Canadian stores
    Best Buy Co Inc (BBY.N) plans to close some stores and consolidate its operations in Canada, the U.S. electronics retailer's second-largest market, in a move that will hurt earnings this year, the company said on Saturday. The retailer said it will close 66 of its Future Shop brand stores in Canada and convert 65 of them to Best Buy brand stores. The move to a single brand will cut 500 full-time and 1,000 part-time jobs, and cost the company about US$200 million to US$280 million in restructuring charges, Best Buy said. Best Buy also said it plans to spend C$200 million (US$160 million) to improve its online operations in Canada, increase staffing at remaining stores, and launch a range of home appliances, among other initiatives.
  • President Xi says China should not focus on growth rate only
    Chinese President Xi Jinping said on Saturday that the country should not focus on its economic growth rate only, reiterating China's push for a more sustainable, higher-quality expansion. Chinese leaders have announced an economic growth target of around 7 percent for this year, below the 7.5 percent goal in 2014 and the slowest rate in a quarter-century. Analysts anticipate further interest rate cuts in China this year.
