BUCKHANNON – Dough Re Mi is under new ownership, but still plans to be a hub for coffee and community.
Daniel Cain and Talia Chopyak have taken over ownership of Dough Re Mi but said they want the bakery and coffee shop to remain a welcoming place for local people and visitors alike.
“We plan on keeping it how she had had it,” Cain said. “Especially the community aspects that she ran with. We plan on bringing in some more artists in the space and just adding more items on the shelves.”
He said they want to provide items for the community they may not be able to get elsewhere in town.
“Ideally we’re wanting to make it a collection of stores that Buckhannon doesn’t have,” Cain said. “We sell music supplies, which you can’t really get in Buckhannon, we have a bookstore that doesn’t really exist in Buckhannon, so it’s like a collection of stores in one space that kind of got wiped out whenever bigger corporations came in.”
Cain said they want to bring in more visual artists and musicians. Dough Re Mi has hosted open mic nights, poetry readings and more.
“We are trying to keep everything as local as we can,” Cain said. “Our coffee comes from Mountain Roasters, who is a local roaster here in town and our eggs are local and we sell local honey.”
Dough Re Mi still offers coffee with dark, medium, light roasts and cold brew. They also sell organic hot teas, with a variety of types including black, green, herbal mint and herbal turmeric.
“We sell CBD (cannabidiol),” Cain said. “You can add it to a drink, but you can also get the salves and the oils and we’re hoping to get pet oils back in soon and pet treats.”
Chopyak is Dough Re Mi’s baker. She plans to stick with some of the classic baked goods while mixing up some new creations as well.
“We’re still keeping up with breads and morning pastries like scones and muffins and then cookies and bars – pretty much everything,” Chopyak said. “We will do cake orders. We don’t really have the space for really large orders, but if someone were to ask if they want a pie or birthday cakes, that would be great.”
Some of the baked goods they had available last week were lemon cupcakes with citrus berry icing, chocolate chip scones with brown sugar glaze, brookie bars (brownie and chocolate chip cookie mix) and pecan streusel muffins.
“We are hoping to do sandwiches and salads,” Cain said. “We’re waiting partially for more local produce so we can have a few sandwiches and kind of showcase what is local. I do chicken salad sandwiches with chickens from the same farmers that we get our eggs.”
The hours will remain the same: Monday and Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.; Wednesday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.; and Thursday and Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dough Re Me will be closed Saturdays and Sundays.
Dough Re Mi is on Instagram and Facebook where Cain and Chopyak said they will post their specials and baked goods every day.
