Tattle Tale Cafe and Coffee Shop is Talk of the Beach

Jeff and Julie Malecha opened their new Colonial Beach coffee shop in 2005. They bought the old Esso Station property at 215 Washington Avenue and named it the Expresso Station.  

But Jeff was tragically killed in 2010 while removing an underground gas tank to build a new patio and Julie eventually decided to sell Colonial Beach’s only upscale coffee shop.

Fortunately for residents and visitors to the Beach, Bonnie Wyne stepped up to the plate in 2012. And, her newly remodeled Tattle Tale Cafe and Coffee Shop with its upgraded menu is literally the talk of the town.

“When I heard the coffee shop was for sale, it certainly piqued my interest,” Bonnie said.  “I could see the Beach had changed and thought it would be a good place to grow a business.”

“When I came back to Colonial Beach after being away since the mid 80s, the first building I saw when I turned onto Washington Avenue was the coffee shop,” said Bonnie.

“The old brick building with the beautiful patio and tables with umbrellas seemed so inviting. I went in and ordered a latte. Little did I know that two years later I would be the proud owner.”

Bonnie, who had owned and operated a construction company for 20 years, was impressed with the coffee shop’s operation. “When I met the customers, that sealed the deal. I knew it had to remain a coffee shop. After all it is the hub of Colonial Beach. People gather not only for coffee, but to socialize.”

But Bonnie also knew she wanted to serve more than coffee. So today, the cafe and coffee shop serves paninis made from fresh vegetables, quiches made fresh daily, soups and chowders, gourmet sirloin burgers, BBQ with coleslaw, and many other specialities.  Wine and beer are also available.

“Light fare with a gourmet twist seemed to be the right fit for the Tattle Tale,” Bonnie said. Her customers agree and business at the friendly Washington Avenue cafe and coffee shop is steady.

“It has taken a lot of work and long hours to take the TattleTale from a coffee shop to a cafe and coffee shop,” Bonnie said. “Of course none of this would have been possible without the great crew of people who work here.”
