Owner Suzzanne Mendenhall

Question: Suzzanne, what led you to create the Coffee Brake experience?

Answer: “I loved people, and enjoyed when I was a waitress. The fact is, Mt. Shasta needed a drive-through, and I thought somebody needed to do it. And that turned out to be me!”

Question: How has it worked out?

Answer: “It’s hard work, but I’m proud to serve, we have truly outstanding quality, and we get rave reviews from locals and travelers alike. That makes it truly satisfying.”
