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.
