Owner of Alchemy Coffee announces return on March 1

A small note taped to a coffee shop’s window created quite a stir recently in Wilmette.

The message, “In-store retail operations closed indefinitely,” written on the back of an envelope, had loyalists of Alchemy Coffee House frightened concerning the beloved shop’s future.

But owner Blaire Cooke cleared things up, telling The Record that while health issues forced a short lived shutdown of the small Linden Square shop, Alchemy will return by Friday, March 1.

“It was an inconceivable situation that we needed to improve,” Cooke said. “… We wanted a break.”

Alchemy Coffee House, 416 Linden Ave., opened in 2005 and is well-known around town for its house-roasted coffee and homemade scones — each of that are also available for home delivery.

Cooke said Alchemy was considering expansion a number of years ago, however the onset of the pandemic put a pin in that concept.

For now, though, Cooke said the health complications are easing up and he’s looking forward to reopening the shop’s doors on March 1.

Alchemy Coffee Home is open from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. every Friday-Sunday, but delivery orders are all the time available and complete inside 24 hours. For more information, email enjoy@alchemycoffeehouse.com or call (224) 522-1890.
