Established in 2009.
Crozet was in the need of a neighborhood gathering place and we wanted to create a warm & welcoming coffee shop-cafe where the food was awesome, the setting cozy, the staff incredibly nice and attentive where everyone would feel at home. We bought this vintage 1920's cottage in the heart of town and began to transform it while keeping it's great qualities. We uncovered layers of "new flooring", put in new support beams, updated the insulation, electrical & plumbing systems, put in a pervious concrete parking lot, planted over 65 trees and shrubs to respect the stream buffer while creating a nice patio/garden with an outdoor play space for kids.
The response of the community has been incredible! We are very honored when our patrons bring their friends to the Green House because it's their favorite place and they want to share the experience. We thank you all so much for your support and look forward to many years of serving you!
Meet the Business Owner
After living in many places in the world, it was time to settle down in one place for a while. Virginia fit the bill for natural beauty, temperate climate, nearby historical attractions and not too far from family. After serving a few years in the US Air Force and many more as a nurse, I was ready to try to "hang up my own shingle" and create a place that I could try my hand at a few creative endeavors... I loved to garden, bake, cook and serve people. A coffee shop seemed like a good idea... Read a lot of books, took small business courses, worked at a local coffee shop learning the ropes, bought the building, renovated along with my incredible & capable, persistent husband...and alas, we have been amazed and grateful for the community response. I love my employees, my patrons and look forward to many years of creating a loving, wholesome place for friends to gather.
