SPEARFISH — They knew a coffee shop would be the perfect complement to the budding Village at Creekside development in north Spearfish, and after looking into the possibilities, sisters Kelly Klein and Vicki Furnish decided to take on the challenge. They, along with Furnish’s daughter, Megan Furnish, opened Creekside Bean and Vine at 2541 Yukon Place on Aug. 5.
“We love it,” Klein said of the locally-owned coffee shop and wine bar, describing that their opening day was the Monday of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
“We really wanted to specialize in our coffee and wine, so we’re considering it artisan coffee, so it’s a place to get something special,” she said.
The menu includes various coffee and tea, kombucha, spritzers, wines, and food options, with items like avocado toast, salads and wraps, Leones’ ice cream, s’mores to make over the fire, and more.
The owners also plan to add seasonal items as summer transitions into fall.
“We’ve got lots of plans,” Furnish said.
In addition, for those in need of a private meeting space, there is a space for about a meeting or event for 20-25 people available within Creekside Bean and Vine.
The sisters said that they have enjoyed learning about the finer points of coffee and wine through the new business endeavor, and they invite everyone in to enjoy the new, fresh, and comfortable space, which includes indoor and outdoor seating, right along Spearfish Creek.
“We want it to be a relaxing space to come to,” Furnish said, describing that there are beautiful views on the creek, no matter the season.
The owners said that they are enjoying the challenges that come with starting a business; seeing the public; and learning all the ins and outs. Furnish explained that they are working with Pure Bean, out of Rapid City, which roasts/supplies their coffee, as well as provides the bakery items.
“That’s been fun, learning all that,” she said, describing that they have found many mentors in their partnerships with suppliers, etc.
“We’re learning as we go,” Klein said.
They added that the Village at Creekside is becoming a destination and that they’ve seen many people coming in from around the area. They are planning a grand opening soon.
“Come visit! Come check it out,” Furnish said.
The business is open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
