The Renaissance Building, our three-storefront location in downtown Steubenville

In 2016, we purchased an unused structure in the heart of downtown Steubenville, previously known as the Raney & Sheal Building. The three- story building contained a ballroom and three separate storefronts, giving us the perfect opportunity to expand our own offerings to meet the needs of a struggling community. After considerable renovations, upgrades, and facade improvements, we’ve added what every hoppin’ downtown needs: a locally-owned coffeehouse serving self-roasted cups of coffee and building community. This is also where our popcorn factory and year-round Christmas shop are located.
The word “Renaissance” is French for “Rebirth” and is associated with the cultural movement that took place in Europe from the 14th to 17th century. The Renaissance brought forth revolutions in literature, diplomacy, education, science, and art. Since they came into existence, coffeehouses have been centers for socializing, conducting business, and exchanging ideas. ​We hope that our efforts to revitalize downtown Steubenville will bring about a Renaissance of sorts for this town, through an inspired appreciation for art, history, creative craftsmanship, music, architecture, and manufacturing.
