The Cracked Pot Coffee & Crepes
Find high quality, carefully crafted coffees and crepes!
Brian and Tracy Teetzen and their daughter, Cassidy, moved from Lebanon to Middletown in order to open their dream business. The Cracked Pot Coffee & Crepes opened in July of 2022 and has already become a local favorite.
When the Teetzen family moved to Middletown about 3 years ago, they began their life-long aspiration of opening their own crepe and coffee shop. They converted a former Realtor office into their cozy and charming shop on Central Avenue. The family, along with Cassidy's boyfriend Jordan Coix, worked together to renovate the shop and turn it into their dream business.
Owning a coffee shop had been Tracy and Brian's aspiration for years; they modeled their vision after a coffee shop that the couple frequented on a previous trip to Germany. The goal was to create a space where people could feel at home while getting a fresh, high quality meal.
While looking for a location, the character of the building captured Tracy and Cassidy's hearts immediately; they could envision the look and atmosphere of their shop. Throughout the renovations, they kept a lot of the building's initial charm while adding their own unique touches. "It all just came together," Brain says.
Cassidy also works with a lot of local artists to sell locally-made sculptures, jewelry and art at the shop. All of the art adds a unique aspect to the eclectic and fun decor throughout the shop.
The name "The Cracked Pot" was chosen by Tracy, paying tribute to an Indian folktale that she had always admired. The story's message focuses on always staying true to who you are, and realizing that your flaws can also be your strengths.
