OKANOGAN – Douglas and Janet Burts and Kodi Erickson-Greene opened a coffee house called “On the Avenue” on Feb. 8 in Okanogan. On the Avenue offers coffee, espressos, smoothies, Italian sodas, hand baked muffins, sandwiches, soup, hot dogs and an assortment of coffee accompaniments.

“We also sell T-shirts, coffee beans, travel mugs and consignment art work,” they say. In the near future they are looking to offer hard packed ice cream and possibly adding a regulation pool table. “We opened this business to provide a place to relax and enjoy for all who enter,” they said, adding they provide a “fun atmosphere that ha something to offer to all age groups.”

The Burts owned an air charter business before moving to Okanogan about seven years ago. Erickson-Greene moved to Okanogan in September of 2013. The Burts have three children and Erickson-Greene, their niece, has a daughter.

“We own horses, dogs and cats,” the Burts add. Although they plan a grand opening, they haven’t set a date as of yet.

On the Avenue is located at 134 2nd Ave. S. in Okanogan. The phone number is (509) 557-6161. The coffee shop is open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
