The STORY of RIchard's Coffee Shop


What started out... as a little shop named Pat's Gourmet Coffee Shop, named in honor of his wife, became much more. It became a "Living" Military Museum, named in honor of the man who spent the last 14 years of his life honoring and supporting America's Veterans. It was owned and operated by Richard Warren, a U.S. Army, Vietnam Huey gunship pilot, callsign "Mustang 53."
