6504 SE Foster Road
Who are you?
I am Kelsey, owner of Pieper Cafe and your neighbor.
What do you do?
I get up early and fulfill my dreams of owning my own coffee shop in my neighborhood. I get to make awesome coffee for people, and delicious sandwiches and soups from scratch!
What is your inspiration? (Why do you do what you do?)
I worked for Coffee People for 12 years, and would probably still be doing it if they were still around. I’m inspired by my neighborhood, and wanting to make it a better place. I really like talking to people and it’s been great to get to know the people that live around me. PLUS, I get to WALK to work!
What brought you and/or your business to the Foster-Powell Community?
I’ve lived in the neighborhood for 7 years. When I found out that the space was available, I jumped at the chance to make it some place in our neighborhood that I’d want to hang out.
What is your favorite way to enjoy Foster?
I love walking my dog, Monroe, around the neighborhood. We used to go to Guapo almost everyday to visit Megan and Allie. I was sad when they closed. I really enjoy working on Foster, and getting to know a side that I never knew before.
