Sage Coffeehouse Closes in Pottsville
Sage Coffeehouse and Tea Garden on Centre St. in downtown Pottsville announced it’s closed for good.
The business operated at the corner of Centre and Market Sts. in the city for more than 20 years. It was a business truly ahead of its time.
But in a social media post announcing its permanent closing, owners say it was time for a change. And you can have change unless you make that change yourself.
They write: “If nothing changes … nothing changes. It is with that spirit that we are closing the cafe. It has been an honor to have served this community for over 20 years and we will miss you all. Thanks for all the love over the years!!!”
Sage Coffeehouse in Pottsville Closes After More than 20 Years in Business
Sage was ahead of its time, at least in Pottsville it was. When it first opened, there really was nothing else like it in all of Schuylkill County.
And over the years, it was much more than a coffee shop, a tea garden, or a cafe. But it was a great one of each of those.
Sage played host to many aspiring artists in Pottsville and Schuylkill County. It allowed many budding artists to host their first shows. And it became a place for them all to hang out, too.
But you don’t stay in business in Pottsville for as long as Sage did just by hosting art shows. It was the coffee, tea, and definitely that Thanksgiving Everyday sandwich that kept the lights on at Sage for as long as they did.
Super kind service from the great owners over the years didn’t hurt either.
Our friend over at Coalspeaker.com used to visit Sage regularly and wrote out an excellent retrospective on the business in a post on Saturday. Head over there to check it out.
