A Windsor couple has brought their coffee shop franchise downtown.

Kyle and Rachel Bondy wanted to expand Anchor Coffee House, from Huron Church Rd. The new location opened on Ouellette Ave. a week ago.

Kyle Bondy says the name “Anchor” came from their passion for a nautical theme.

“This has always been a long term goal for us. It was something my wife and I had in common,” said Bondy. “We both had a similar dream to open a coffee shop.”

The Bondys had a stand at the Downtown Windsor Farmer’s Market three years ago but decided to go else where with their business.

“We had a business plan and it worked out for us. We struggled with money for a little but were able to make it work,” said Rachel.

Anchor Coffee House offers coffee from all over the world. It also serves sandwiches, salads and a variety of baked goods.

“We source different espressos from different coffee roasters from all over the world,” said Bondy.

Erica Thibodeau, a customer at Anchor, says the main reason she comes to the cafe is the environment.

“I love the atmosphere. It’s very welcoming,” said Thibodeau.”You can come here and read, or talk with new people. It’s a great place to hang out.”

Anchor Coffee House is open Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
